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!

Many people feel they may be "depressed" and therefore seek out the assistance of a therapist. First we must determine if you have a clinical depression. The term depression is used widely but often an individual is just feeling sad about an event and does not have a true clinical depression. This will involve a thorough assessment. Your concerns will be the focus of therapy. We may include your family and/or friends as needed. Recommending medication is never my first choice, but in some cases, a referral to your Primary Care Physician or a Psychiatrist for medication evaluation may be helpful to take the edge off of symptoms so you can work more effectively in session.

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.

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.

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 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. This may include medical care; many physical conditions can cause, or worsen, depression. There is plenty of research supporting a combination of cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and lifestyle changes. CBT addresses patterns of thinking that can lead to feelings of depression. Examples are: chronic worrying, black-and-white thinking, expecting things to go wrong, or taking everything personally. You can be happy again!
