As a Doctor of Psychology I am expertly trained in providing scientifically based treatments such as cognitive behavioral therapy to assist you in reducing your anxious and depressive symptoms. Although some of us benefit from medication in addition to therapy or counseling, depression is often a natural response to unfortunate situations or the result of unhealthy behavior patterns. With my experience and training, I will guide you in changing your life and collaborate with your prescribing provider if necessary.

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.

As a psychologist, depression may be the most common complaint or difficulty that my clients experience. Put simply, depression can be a result of genetic/constitutional tendencies, environmental issues such as life stressors, or both. I often employ what is known as the cognitive-behavioral approach in dealing with depression, in other words looking at the relationship between negative, self-defeating thoughts, and the resulting emotion, e.g., "Stinkin' Thinkin'." I also place a large emphasis on important daily mood issues, such as sleep, diet, activity level, and receiving adequate light levels. An attitude of gratefulness is important in reducing feelings of depression.

EMDR and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy are both effective research-supported approaches to helping individuals overcome depression. Both of these approaches focus on identifying negative beliefs about yourself and experiences that may contribute to feeling depressed. EMDR is used to “reprocess” previous life experiences that may negatively affect your self-confidence, especially those that occurred in your family of origin. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is helpful in identifying and challenging irrational or negative self-beliefs that contribute to feeling depressed.

When we uncover an experience of depression we will most certainly discover raw feelings of loss. Most often we simply want the pain to go away but our pain is actually a gift. The truth is that the way we were living before was simply not working. Counseling can serve as a tremendous catalyst for reframing our pain in order to discover the life we long to experience.

As most counselors do I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy to identify distorted thinking that may be contributing to depression. But I do not stop there. Very often depression is the brain's way of interrupting a person's life to resolve deeper emotional traumas or wounds from childhood experiences. This is where the inner healing therapy I do helps people resolve the root causes of depression. I also work with the client to make sure there is not a medical condition such as a thyroid problem that is contributing to it.

If you feel depressed, you may be frustrated because you don’t know why. On the other hand, you may know why you feel depressed but the symptoms don’t subside. Many times we are still affected in the present by painful events of our past. We can’t change our past. However, we can change how the past is affecting us today. With every hurtful event comes emotional pain and a negative belief about you. In psychotherapy with me, that event can be processed in a way that removes the pain and replaces the negative belief with a positive belief of your choosing. This process can reduce and eliminate the symptoms of depression. Go to emdr.com for more information and research on this process.
