Depression is one of the most common mental illnesses with nearly 25% of Americans suffering from it in their lifetime. Evidenced-based treatment recommendations implore psychologists to utilize Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy to significantly decrease depressive symptoms including pervasive sadness, irritability, sleep difficulties, and hopelessness or suicidal ideation. CBT is a cognitive and skills-based treatment that focuses on shifting thoughts, feelings, and behaviors to be more adaptive and supportive of a balanced emotional state.

Depression can rob people of their energy and joy. It may feel like an emotional toothache or a psychic migraine. Clients report they do not like feeling depressed but they do not know how to get out of it. There are reasons why people feel depressed and their are treatments that help relieve depression, pharmacological and cognitive-behavioral. I utilize cognitive-behavioral and developmental strategies in treating depression. If antidepressants have failed to resolve a depressed mood, there may be an underlying emotional wound that requires treatment. Please be aware that depression can also be a symptom of another illness or organic imbalance and should be assessed by a physician.

A large percentage of those whom I have seen over the years have struggled with depression in some form. It looks different from person to person. Some times depression accompanies a significant change or loss; some times it feels as if you have struggled with it all or most of your life. When it comes to treating depression, one size does not fit all. If you feel "less than" yourself, without as much energy, sad, prone to isolation, disinterested in life, or focused on thoughts of dying, please contact me so that we may explore those unique factors that contribute to your depressive symptoms.

Depression is a very lonely disorder. People struggling with depression often find isolation and negative thoughts to be a vicious cycle and it sometimes seems impossible to get yourself out of it. Using the evidenced based treatments of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Motivational Enhancement Therapy, we can work together to improve your mood and your life. We can partner together so that you don't feel so alone while we identify and change the beliefs and thoughts that are keeping you stuck. It is possible!

With depression many people believe that the only answer is medication. While many people sometimes do need medications to stabilize it is not the complete answer. Additionally there are many people that are diagnosed with depression that do not find relief with a medication regiment. There are a lot of answers to be found by looking under the disorder. I work with individuals that suffer from depression to see what life issues contribute to these feelings and how to address those things that medications cannot touch.

A person experiencing depression may feel like he/she is carring around bricks in a sack that weighs them down more and more to the point of becoming despondant. At the same time, there is always hope. This can be the hardest to see. Client will know they are not alone and how to create a support system if needed. The level of the client's depression will be evaulated and if medication is appropriate the client will be referred for medication. I will teach coping skills and address any self medicating the client may engage in. I will use cognitive behavior therapy to address any irrational thought patterns.

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 may be suffering with profound feelings of sadness or shame, negative thoughts, lack of energy or an inability to get out of bed, tearfulness, or difficulty concentrating or communicating. Have you found yourself totally uninterested in activities you used to enjoy? Unexpressed feelings & a sense of isolation can worsen depression, an even lead to thoughts of suicide. Therefore, the importance of getting appropriate help cannot be overemphasized. Depression is an illness that is highly treatable. It can be improved, if not resolved. Through the process of focusing internally, you can begin to understand, unravel & transform your depression. Please seek help today. You can overcome this!

A human being's mind is so powerful that it can either enhance him/her or bring him/her down. The mind itself is inherently powerful: whether that power is used negatively or positively, accidentally or purposefully, depends to some extent on a person's knowledge and experience. My approach with a client who feels depressed is to listen closely and discover how they think, feel, and act. Working with the client on these three factors, and how they interact, can help them reclaim their own well-being and realize they are actually the author of their mind's power.
