Are you feeling helpless, alone, despair or overwhelming sadness? You may be depressed. Depression is one of the most significant illnesses that interfere with your body, emotions, thoughts and normal functioning. It causes pain to you and your loved ones, however, it is treatable. I can assist you in identifying the source of your depression, along with your inner strength to activate your body’s natural healing power, and therefore providing hope, relief and a brighter tomorrow.

The normal ups and downs of life mean that everyone feels sad or has "the blues" from time to time. Depression is different from normal sadness in that it engulfs your day-to-day life, interfering with your ability to work, study, eat, sleep, and have fun. The feelings of helplessness, hopelessness, and worthlessness are intense and unrelenting, with little, if any, relief. I have found in treating clients with depression that a multi-pronged approach is most effective and includes a combination of social support, lifestyle changes and emotional skills building learned within the therapeutic relationship.

My approach to depression therapy begins with helping clients understand it is a treatable illness. I assess their symptoms (sleep, eating problems, lack of focus, irritability, anxiety, sadness) to determine their condition (major depression, situational depression, dysphoria). I also determine whether medication (administered under the supervision of a medical professional) may be necessary in addition to talk therapy. I employ compassionate listening to understand each client's issues and the root causes of their condition and develop a tailored treatment plan.

The benefits of seeing a counselor for depression are many: it helps to put lives in perspective and become aware that most types of depressions can be reversed. My counseling aims to get the person back on her/his feet and feeling better as soon as possible. I try to understand where the person is coming from in life and show the person that consistent therapy sessions can lead to benefiting and enriching her/his life. Also, I promote the benefits of reaching out to people, even if they don't want to at the time. Contact with others its extremely beneficial to the depressed person.

I believe that depression is anger turned inward. I would use psycotherapy to delve into the reasons for the anger. Where did it originate and discuss methods to use on a daily basis to resolve this anger through a spiritual life and gratitudes. I would also take a family history and have the patient get a medical exam to identify the possiblity of it being a genetic disorder or physical malady. Concurring with the medical doctor or naturopath I would discuss methods to use through diet and exercise, meditation and social outlets to deal on a daily basis with the depression.

When someone is living with depression it can feel like carrying a heavy weight or living under a dark cloud of isolation. It's often the case that an individual is unaware they are actually depressed. If you're uncertain of the signs and symptoms see this link: http://www.mentalhealthamerica.net/mental-health-screen/patient-health Treatment for depression can include a variety of methods. In my practice, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Emotion Focused Therapy and Mindfulness treatment models are most effective. These therapeutic strategies can be very powerful - not only in treating the symptoms of depression but they also enhance a greater sense of worth and well-being.

I have great respect for people who are struggling in their life with an overall lack of satisfaction and motivation. I will help you identify those “triggers” that cause your low mood, and to develop coping skills to help you feel better. My clients report that they are able to sense and identify mood fluctuations as a result of our therapy sessions. Clients that are on medication can expect a team approach to their wellness, as I consult with physicians. If you are reading this right now, you or someone you care about is struggling with the ability to sustain important relationships. If you are currently feeling suicidal, please call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room.

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.
