Depression is a debilitating emotional or biochemical reaction to unresolved stress or trauma. It can manifest itself in so many different ways including feeling stuck, sleep difficulties, eating patterns, low self esteem/worth, feeling shame, wanting to hurt ourselves and wanting to no longer be alive. It can be an over all daily feeling or come and go in waves. There are probably unresolved reasons why you feel depressed and something gets triggered to cause that feeling of sadness, paralysis, or anger at yourself. You are not alone you don't always have to feel depressed. Change is possible! I work with people who experience depression.

By clarifying your values and then working on a plan on how to bring those values to life is part of therapy.

Depression can be nothing short of crippling. Never being able to get out of bed. Telling people you love that you are fine when you are not. Feeling like no one understands. Other people can't relate to you anymore. Feeling along when you are surrounded by people. Depression can affect anyone. Doesn't matter who you are, where you are, what you have, who you have, what you have accomplished, or what you believe. You can't suck it up, power through, get tough, and a bunch of other sayings or clichés that mean nothing. Depression takes no prisoners. It does not discriminate. Depression is the great equalizer for everyone. However, you do not have to suffer with depression.

The first step in dealing with depression is psycho/educational regarding the physical connections between medical issues and depression. All clients should have a full medical work up and rule out the possibility of medical causes with depression. Lifestyle choices, diet, sleep hygiene, exercise and relational boundaries will be explored during treatment of depression. In a sense, "depressed" symptoms can be connected to a multitude of causes. The traditional psychodynamic approach in embracing our stories honestly and examining our relational tendencies to repress the uncomfortable parts of our past will also be utilized to liberate the client from the pain of depression.

Depression is a debilitating illness that takes many forms. Here at Naya Clinic, we have seen it leave the strong feeling helpless and the passionate lose their fire. Depression—like grief—is characterized by sadness or a lack of motivation. However, grief is an overwhelming—albeit normal—emotional response to the tragedies of life, whereas depression persists beyond—or even in the absence of—these tragedies. Depression often takes the joy from once-pleasurable pastimes and can fill its victims’ heads with negative self-talk, or—at its worst—even cause thoughts of ending their lives.

Depression may show up in a variety of different ways for you; you may notice that you are feeling deeply sad, lonely, and alone. You may also be noticing that you are lacking in energy, inspiration, and motivation. Depression or overwhelming feelings of sadness and despair are often clues that something deeper is going on within your psyche and within your body. More often than not there is a reason for your depression, even when you are not consciously aware of it. Your body doesn't speak in words, the way your mind does, rather it communicates with you through your feelings, sensations, and emotions. Often ignoring your emotions can intensify your feelings of depression.

Depression is a challenging and often complex form of stuckness that deserves our attention, as depressive patterns of thought and behavior are always personally limiting, and can become more severe and self-reinforcing over time. My approach to treating depression is multifaceted and addresses stress (an initial trigger for depression in 80% of cases) as well as patterns of thought and behavior. In all cases, primary focus is given to what I refer to as the enemies of depression: connection, attention, and movement. Most of my clients experience some relief from depression in as little as 2-3 sessions. For more information, contact me using the links here, or visit ChangeTalkTherapy.com.

I take an individualized approach so the process depends on how you want to approach it and what your needs are.

Grey Matters International, Inc. and the work of Kevin J. Fleming, Ph.D. handles depression and other emotional disorders in a very unique way. Most of therapy or counseling processes utilize validation, unconditional positive regard, and reframing as common techniques to get someone to heal from their depression. Though this can be helpful, it rarely fixes the core problem behind it and for tough cases we then refer them usually to a psychiatrist for medication which can have tons of side effects. Instead, why not try a natural and arguably more effective way to not just change your mind, but change the brain--where the depression is rooted. Contact us at kevin@kevinflemingphd.com.

You can't remember the feeling of being happy or content. It seems like a cloud is following you around. Some days you can't crawl out of bed, others you just pace around and can't fall asleep. When was the last time you had the sunny outlook that used to be the norm for your life? What things have worked in the past - perhaps all you need is a listening ear and compassion. Other times you could use some spiritual direction to make your way back to God and the people who even now offer you their love and acceptance. I can help you move to open your heart again to the beauty and joy around you.

Depression is a complex problem that affects many different aspects of the sufferer’s life. It can affect the body, and generate physical symptoms like insomnia, fatigue, appetite disturbances, anxiety, and suicidal thoughts. Psychotherapy and antidepressant medications are the two most commonly used treatments for managing depression. Many people use a combination of the two. Psychotherapy is a non-drug alternative that is generally as effective as medication, and in some ways even superior because it treats the root causes of depression. In my practice I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to replace the dysfunctional thoughts that are causing depressive symptoms with functional thoughts.

Depression can be very lonely, because even if you want to feel better and try to, you just can't. This can lead to feeling helpless and hopeless. Many factors both biological and environmental contribute to the onset of depression, and it is important to look at and address each element in conjunction with one another to experience long term relief. I am trained to view people holistically in order to provide help and hope to those struggling with depression.
