Jennifer assesses and treats childhood depression. She takes into account how depression impacts the child and the child’s functioning at home and at school. Jennifer helps children who are depressed cope with the intensity of their feelings and works to strengthen the support system within family relationships. Oftentimes parents of a depressed child can feel lost in how to support their child emotionally and how to deal with problematic behavior that results from an irritable depressed child. As a result, Jennifer also works with parents on supportive strategies they can employ at home to help empower their child, assist in helping their child cope with depression, and provide disciplinary strategies that are unique and sensitive to their child’s needs.

Depression can be one of the most difficult emotions to manage and overcome. If you are experiencing depression, I will come alongside of you and work with you to find the underlying cause of the emotion, sometimes it can be situational such as that found in grieving loss, but it can also be a symptom of something much deeper as that found with a difficult childhood. Either way, I will work with you to work through and find relief and improve your mood.

Many of the clients who come to me experiencing depression feel a sense of shame. They say "I have everything I wanted in life; the family, the job, the finances, the home". These clients often wait too long to reach out because they feel they "shouldn't be depressed". Depression is an equal opportunity illness. No amount of money, security or education will protect us from being a potential candidate, especially if we have a family history. Implied in what I have already written is a way of thinking that I believe extends and deepens depression. Let's talk together and explore what happened or is happening in your life that is creating your current state of being.

The word "depression" describes many feelings. You may be on the severe end—feeling like life isn’t worth living, not wanting to get out of bed, or not feeling like taking care of yourself. Or you may be on the mild end—feeling less energetic, experiencing lasting irritability, or feeling like you just want to be left alone. Maybe you are somewhere in between. Regardless, depression doesn't have to be a life sentence. It’s treatable. As an experienced therapist trained in the treatment of depression, I can help you identify underlying causes, work with you to develop a results-focused plan, and get you on a path to the life you want to be living. 407-699-5824

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.

Being in a funk, blah, depressed, sad...........all of these sensations can grab hold of you like a lead weight, and can feel like a vicious cycle - when you feel this way, you don't feel motivation to do the things that would help you to feel better, so you keep feeling worse, and on we go. I can help you get "unstuck" from that thought process, work with visualization to help you envision being more content (which is half the battle), and even use specific therapeutic yoga poses to help improve your mood.

It is possible to feel very alone and like no one understands when you feel depressed. Common symptoms include isolation by withdrawing, not eating, stop being social, crying, not sleeping well or sleeping too much and disengaging in the important aspects of life. Many people are unable to just simply get past depression without help from a professional. Call today so we can get started. I look forward to hearing from you.

As a Cognitive Behavioral Therapist for over 17 years ,my goal is to teach clients how our negative self talk, that little voice that always reminds us of our faults, shortcomings and mistakes, is the basis for low self esteem and depression. Essentially, what we "think" is what we "feel". By learning to identify these irrational and destructive thoughts and utilize effective strategies to challenge and reframe our self talk and behavior, we can reshape our self concept and begin to live the life that we deserve and desire
