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 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 presents differently for so many. Some may feel lonely, sad, and misunderstood. Another may feel exhausted and achy. Symptoms range from loss of enjoyment to crying, fatigue, loss of appetite and sex drive. The real essence of depression, however, is the hopelessness and helplessness. Depression hijacks your reason and rationality and replaces it with despair. Therapy has been proven in research to help. I would be honored to help you move past your depression and into a state of well being.

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.

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.
