Sometimes, depression is so painful, we hold it in, rather than risk getting overwhelmed by feelings. It can be scarey to express feelings. Taking any action may be the last thing you feel like doing, especially when you lose sight of hope. Your energy may be low, and relationships can be affected. It may feel like you are mad at the world, or just want to retreat. I will try to make it safe for you. I will listen and also guide you, when needed. People find that when they are seen and heard, part of their feelings of isolation lifts. We will also examine the thoughts that keep you stuck and explore other meanings. Sometimes adding nonverbal work, like art, helps express scarey feelings.

If you are experiencing situational or chronic depression, you need help. In a safe environment, we will explore the experiences and thought processes that lead to depression. Then, by reframing, I will help you keep what is true and discard the incorrect beliefs that caused your depression in the first place. I will encourage self-care as a way to manage and improve your mood including walking, journal writing and developing a strong social network. I will also explain the role of the brain in depression and discuss how medication can help.

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.

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.

Depression is more than a word, for many people it is a temporary or chronic state of sadness, fear, frustration, confusion, chaos, and meaninglessness. When depression is present, the things that used to make a person happy are now dull, lifeless, and without joy. Furthermore, depression robs us of our will to change, of our hope, and of our energy. Inertia and darkness can then take over a life. Working through depression requires compassion for ourselves and patience with the process. We begin to gradually rediscover and integrate essential activities back into our lives. Ultimately we regain momentum and then can find the source of the depression and work on taking its energy away.

In depression you are caught in the past! You fear that your future will only be a replication of the misery and poor behavior choises that have been your past. You get caught in obsessive loops of thoughts and cannot break free. Your feelings become blunted and your optimism is eroded. I can help you escape from the cages in your mind and the dullness of your current life. With or without medication, I will help you to learn and use techniques to gain freedom and recapture your emotional depth. You will learn to live more fully in the present moment, to criticise yourself less, and to appreciate the newly percieved options that surround you.

When working with depression, I use a combination of Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), talk therapy, and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) when working with adults and teens and play therapy when working with children. If there is a clinical depression diagnosis, Neurofeedback or consulting a doctor about medication options may also be recommended as a part of the treatment process.

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.

I take a brain-based approach to depression to help you learn to rewire your brain away from the negative and to learn to build more on the positive side of things. We dig deep to try to find the different areas of your life that you do have control over. I offer support, compassion, and love through this process because when you are feeling depressed, finding any positive can be difficult. I will walk with you every step of the way.
