There are multiple reasons why an individual might experience such a state as depression. Often I have found that it is typically being overwhelmed by lifes challenges and uncertainties which then leads to apathy. Other times it is a event like the loss of of job, a loved one, marital difficulties or even just a biological issues. The first goal, then in therapy, is to assess the underlying cause. Once this is accomplished, it is then possible to look for solutions that are tailored to the individual's specific needs so that time is not wasted in pursuing goals.

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.

I have found the Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) model of therapy to be highly effective at helping people to overcome depression. Much of depression takes place when people have thoughts that result in powerful negative thinking. This negative thinking leads to negative feelings, which lead to negative behaviors that keep the person in a negative spiral. Consider how you might engage in this dynamic. If you do, something needs to and can be done to break that loop. I’ve broken the loop for people many times in the last decade and can do the same for you.

Depression is a most debilitating condition and clients can be helped to effectively reduce their sadness. Individuals who struggle with depression usually are trapped in a cycle of self-defeating behaviors that perpetuates the deep feelings of despair. Clients can receive respectful support in facing the issues that keep them enslaved by their grief and be freed from the depths of hopelessness.

Depression is an area I have focused on for more than a decade. I help people to gain a deeper insight about themselves, thereby improving their ability to make better decisions and decrease their depression. I've recently heard a statistic that ~1/3 of American women have taken medication for it at some point in their lives. If true, that is an astounding figure. Unfortunately the medicine does not cure, but only supresses the symptoms. For long-term success, therapy is an essential component.

Depression can be overwhelming, and it can usually be improved and/or healed by using a combination of treatments. I will listen to your story until you feel really heard and understood. Then we may look at specific actions you may take to decrease symptoms. We may use Internal Family Systems Therapy (IFS) to help you listen to the part of you that holds the depressed feeling. It is amazing that the depression can lift by using the IFS approach to caring for yourself.

Depression looks like a great deal of things depending on the person. There are two major types of people who are depressed: Lethargic depression where there is generally a lack of energy and associated symptoms and anxious depression where it's hard to sleep and your mind is in 1,001 places. Depression is a hard "nut" to crack. However, with a motivated client, I have seen many populations not only overcome their depression, but thrive from their past experiences and utilizing those experiences to help others

When you're in that dark place, it can feel hard to find a way out. Trust me, I know. I've been there. Lots of people have. Others overcome depression and you can, too. Depression often results from heavy, pent-up emotions that stay stuck inside you. When you release those emotions, it's like a fog lifting. You begin to experience relief and see the world in a new, and more optimistic, way. I can offer you a safe space to share your pain and get to the root cause of what's troubling you. I'll offer you tools to help you release your feelings safely and experience emotional comfort. My goal is to not only help you feel better but become a stronger and wiser person in the process.
