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.

People going through a depression often feel lonely, isolated and very frightened. They worry that their situation will never improve and that they are destined to a bleak and empty existence. Because they are feeling so badly, they do not see any options or possibilities for themselves and are convinced that the good things in life are not for them. Counseling is an opportunity to renew hope and to envision possibilities.

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 almost 40 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.

Recurrent or chronic depression can be disabling. Social isolation and conflict, deep emotional wounds, losses, and biological factors are just some of the causes of clinical depression. Dr. Rapp uses proven methods of treating the underlying causes of depression to provide relief, and a new life, even for people who have not responded to treatment before. Change is possible, but you have to take the next step.

In treating depression, hope is a key component. I always maintain hope for clients dealing with depression. This hope comes from the many depressed clients who I have witnessed having success in treatment. The many symptoms such as futility, sleep disturbance, appetite disturbance, lack of motivation, anger, sadness and isolation are common with depression. In addition to working psychodynamically, I will help you gain better balance with sleep, nutrition, exercise and socializaition. Please reach out instead of considering self harm, you don't have to be alone!

When clients come to me for help with depression, I want to hear about their most sincere intention. I invite them to go to that place within themselves and say what it is that they are really wanting. This gives me an idea of what their parameters are and what's possible. I like to ask, “What’s asking for attention in your life right now?” My assumption is that they are yearning for inner peace and a loving heart. All of us sense a yearning for existence or a looking for what will feel more at home and at peace. This thought process keeps us energized in hope and less in the depths of despair.

Depression can impact anyone and certainly most people have experienced it as a temporary problem at some point in time. As a temporary mood it is unpleasant but chronic depression has significant impact in one's life when it becomes a disorder. Some symptoms include, but not limited to; sadness, impaired daily functioning at school, work, social and family relationships, decreased concentration, poor appetite, impaired sleep, decreased pleasure or purpose in life, hopelessness, guilt, shame and irrational beliefs. Anxiety and anger can also be present with depression. Counseling and medical treatment with your primary care physician can address proper treatment for depressive disorders.

Depression is a mood disorder causing persistent feelings of sadness and loss of interest. It can be the result of a loss or trauma, it can be a chronic day to day challenge, or it can hit you by surprise for what seems to be no reason. I work with children and adults to help clients to recognize their triggers, change their self-talk, and challenge their negative thoughts in order to regain the joy that they have lost.

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.

Dealing with depression can be difficult and confusing as we all want to feel good, but often feel down and unmotivated. My approach to treating depression starts with evaluating your life, including goals, values, and priorities. I often find that when our actions don't match our core values (what is most important to us) we tend to feel down, not only about our situation, but about ourselves. By working to take action that fits with your value system, you can start to feel better about you and better about your situation.
