A human being's mind is so powerful that it can either enhance him/her or bring him/her down. The mind itself is inherently powerful: whether that power is used negatively or positively, accidentally or purposefully, depends to some extent on a person's knowledge and experience. My approach with a client who feels depressed is to listen closely and discover how they think, feel, and act. Working with the client on these three factors, and how they interact, can help them reclaim their own well-being and realize they are actually the author of their mind's power.

With depression many people believe that the only answer is medication. While many people sometimes do need medications to stabilize it is not the complete answer. Additionally there are many people that are diagnosed with depression that do not find relief with a medication regiment. There are a lot of answers to be found by looking under the disorder. I work with individuals that suffer from depression to see what life issues contribute to these feelings and how to address those things that medications cannot touch.

A person experiencing depression may feel like he/she is carring around bricks in a sack that weighs them down more and more to the point of becoming despondant. At the same time, there is always hope. This can be the hardest to see. Client will know they are not alone and how to create a support system if needed. The level of the client's depression will be evaulated and if medication is appropriate the client will be referred for medication. I will teach coping skills and address any self medicating the client may engage in. I will use cognitive behavior therapy to address any irrational thought patterns.

Depression is one of the most common mental illnesses with nearly 25% of Americans suffering from it in their lifetime. Evidenced-based treatment recommendations implore psychologists to utilize Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy to significantly decrease depressive symptoms including pervasive sadness, irritability, sleep difficulties, and hopelessness or suicidal ideation. CBT is a cognitive and skills-based treatment that focuses on shifting thoughts, feelings, and behaviors to be more adaptive and supportive of a balanced emotional state.

No purpose...Feeling powerless...Hopelessness...Feel like giving up...Lack of motivation...Feeling sucked into a “black hole” with no way out...Overwhelmed... Where does it all come from? How does it make sense? Can anything be done about this? Dr. Petit provides helpful understanding of and insight into depression, depressive states and cycles. Though it is impossible to keep “bad” things from happening, it is possible to make sense of the emotional, physical, physiological, and spiritual impact. A place of hope and well-being is possible as clients work through thought processes, beliefs, behaviors, & life pattern

Naomi Korn, LicSW, BCD

Licensed Clinical Social Worker


I can help you explore the history of your depression, whether it is situational, short term response to stress, or long term which needs to be evaluated for chemical imbalance factors. Talk therapy has been shown to be effective and long term talk therapy has been identified in a large client study as most effective when clients are asked what helped. I can help you to identify your unique childhood and family history experiences and how to desensitize, reprocess and learn to shift what doesn't work to more effective coping strategies. Homework and journalling are used to track your progress.

At Home or Private Discreet Intensives

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
