Experiencing depression can often make you feel lost, vulnerable, and completely lose interest in things that you once loved. You may no longer feel joy in your day to day life and your relationships with family and friends may suffer. I have over 13 years of experience working with those who experience depression, and I would love to help you through your journey back to health and happiness as well.

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.

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.

It's been estimated that in the U.S. 6.7% of all adults aged 18 or older had at least one major depressive episode in the past year. Very few of these people receive any treatment to help reduce the depressive symptoms. I formulate an individualized treatment plan to begin reducing the symptoms baed on their background and history. This is primarily a cognitive-behavioral approach, whereas the client can begin to identify the negative thoughts that can intensify the depression. We come up with ways to neutralize these thoughts, while also beginning to create new positive thoughts. There is also an emphasis on slowly engaging in behaviors that offset the depressive symptoms.

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 an area of special interest to me. It is a common problem, but never "common" to the person suffering! If you've been afraid to seek help, I encourage you to consider a holistic approach to healing your depression. I use research-based strategies integrating cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), mindfulness training and lifestyle changes to increase well-being and decrease physical, emotional and cognitive symptoms of depression. You will be encouraged to see your physician to rule out the many physical ailments that have side effects of depression. The therapy process empowers you to be happy again!

I see depression as something different for everyone affected by it. Some people come in feeling the blues. Others just can't seem to get out of their funk. For some they feel as though they can't remember the last time they were truly happy. I work with each patient to determine the root cause of their feelings so that they can combat their depression head on. I explain my views on happiness vs contentment, and often that allows for people to see things differently enough to make small changes each day. I also speak openly to patients about medication pros and cons, educating them on ways to speak to their primary care physicians and/or psychiatrists in order to optimize treatment.

No purpose...Feeling powerless...Hopelessness...Feel like giving up...Lack of motivation...Feeling sucked into a “black hole” with no way out...Overwhelmed... Where does it all come from? How does it make sense? Can anything be done about this? Dr. Petit provides helpful understanding of and insight into depression, depressive states and cycles. Though it is impossible to keep “bad” things from happening, it is possible to make sense of the emotional, physical, physiological, and spiritual impact. A place of hope and well-being is possible as clients work through thought processes, beliefs, behaviors, & life pattern

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.

Depression can seem to impact every part of life at times and make any task seem like too much work. I provide my clients new ways of handling and challenging the negative thoughts that keep them feeling stuck. By using cognitive behavioral therapy, an evidence based treatment for depression, clients learn to change their thinking pattern that has led to a lot of their emotional pain.
