So often, depression is a natural response by people who feel overwhelmed by all that is required to engage with and enjoy the world. After 42 years in the field, I have learned that the secret to helping clients get past that overwhelmed feeling requires only two easy steps. First, I listen closely to find out what people's natural strengths, skills, and gifts are. Then I gradually give them very small assignments called "baby steps" that rely on their strengths. Each small change has huge results, and depression soon fades away as each step is achieved.

When was the last time you felt real joy or happiness? "Cheer up!" They say. Your friends try to help, if any of them are still standing by you, but it just isn't that easy. Of course, we all want to know "Why do I feel this way?" There are many causes for depression. With over 20 years of experience, I can help explore the most common causes of what we would call "clinical depression." I can also help find some solutions. According to the research, the most effective way to address depression is by simply making a few easy changes in your thinking. You can feel better. Let's get started today.

Simply finding the energy to search out options for a therapist shows your desire to get better. And that is something to hold on to as tightly as you can. In this day and age where we seem to only communicate through text messages and phone apps it becomes more difficult to allow ourselves to feel as well as heal. Working together we can process the challenges that are holding you down as well as work towards goals that can get you past these hurdles.

Sometimes we think of depression as being "stuck"or being "at the bottom of a pit." I believe that strategies for avoiding or withdrawing from the dull pain of depression often contain the very hooks that keep the blues rigidly in place. I work with you to explore the situational, contextual, and emotional aspects of your depression and collaborate with you to get unstuck, raise the bottom of the pit to a better place for you, and ban the blues for good.

Depression is the leading mental illness today. It is easy for those who have never suffered from depression to set in judgment on those who do. Don't allow the opinions of others to keep you from getting help. Depression is a very treatable illness. Most depression is caused by some external life event that needs to be processed through. Here at Gateway we help you discover the event and process through it. We explore whether that event was in the past, the present or a combination of the two. We also help you assess the severity of the depression and then together agree on the best treatment plan for it. There is hope for the depressed person. We are here to help restore it to you.

Depression can make it difficult to make the changes that you know are good for you. The lack of energy makes it hard to do what may make you feel better. In my over two decades of working with individuals I have been able to help people understand why they are feeling the way are and begin to make the changes that make sense to them. Using cognitive behavioral techniques and getting to the root of the depression helps. Having someone compassionate and caring walk through this with you makes all the difference.

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 something that everyone virtually experiences, but most people in the general population experience only what is often referred to as the ups and downs of life. A segment of the population experiences clinical depression, which is a more severe type of depression, that often interferes with a person's overall sens of well-being. It is important to understand the nature of a client's depression, so that appropriate steps and interventions can be taken. I conduct a thorough investigation into the causes that may be associated with the feelings and symptoms of depression.

I specialize in working with clients struggling with depression. Depression is often a signal to the mind and the body that there is something important happening in the client's life that is not being addressed. It is my goal to help each client to better understand the reasons for their depression, which is often rooted in the suppression of other difficult emotions. As we begin to explore some of these deeper issues, I provide my clients with coping skills related to mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotional regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness. That way, a client becomes skilled to deal with the issues they previously feared, in a more healthy and effective way.

I utilize relational approach in working with clients with issues of depression. Client explore the meanings of depression in terms of physiological, psychological, or relationships connectivity. Clients examine steps that have worked in managing symptoms, or not worked. Through the process of therapy, clients become aware of skills to manage and optimize functioning; thereby reinforcing that depression is the problem and they are not the problem. As such, they explore and implement healthy life choices in controlling the symptoms with medication management, social engagements, exercising, relaxation, prioritizing, time management, and identify a safe person to help reflect arising needs.

Distance Therapy and Coaching for Depression. Don’t let the snow or flu season interfere with your therapy sessions. Inclement weather and less sunlight during winter can increase depression, illness, and lethargy. It brings that “I just want to stay at home and rest” feeling. Many of my clients are now using phone or video sessions for this reason and others. Recently, a client’s child was home sick from school, so I told her to grab a cup of coffee or tea and we could have our session over the phone. An increasingly popular method of counseling, distance therapy allows you to have therapy anywhere—from the comfort of your own home or wherever you have access to a phone or computer.

“The Impossible Task”…if you’ve ever struggled with depression you get it. Something that ought to be so easy; sending that email, taking a shower, making the kids lunch, or walking the dog feels as if it’s insurmountable. Well-meaning friends and family aren’t very helpful when they suggest things like, “Just get dressed and exercise. It’ll make you feel better.” I get it. Calling a therapist might be the hardest thing you ever do. If you can take this one step, we’ll walk the rest of the way together.

Depression is a term that we throw around casually to express our overwhelming sadness or frustration with a situation, yet if you have ever suffered from clinical depression you know that it amounts to much more. The darkness, and isolation experienced by a person with clinical depression can significantly impact the most treasured and important part of themselves. Sometimes people express that they are a shell of themselves or that their true self has been kidnapped by depression.
