When we are depressed, we usually feel stuck, helpless, and hopeless. My approach is to help you realize or remember that you have options, and to help you determine what those options are. When we can see our options, we feel better because we feel more in charge of our lives. When we remember our power, we do not need to feel depressed any longer.

Depression is approached in a highly individualized manner--taking into account the client's background, personality factors, religious or spiritual beliefs, and their support system. This approach may include subconscious, unconscious, pre-conscious, &/or conscious techniques. This approach may also involve taking into account personality & emotional factors that are specific to the client. Most importantly, this approach takes into account the use of positive and negative triggers that can prevent an explosive reaction in the first place. It's a highly pro-active, pre-emptive approach. Depression & Anxiety are Specialties at our practice.

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.

Did you know that depression is really typically about anger? The 2 are interwoven. If you think of your emotions like the layers of a volcano. The volcano may be closed and the anger is inside but you feel depressed. So addressing the underlying anger helps greatly. There are things that you can do to increase your serotonin levels other than medication but sometimes medication is needed as an adjunct to therapy.

In my practice I counsel patients experiencing Reactive Depression. The experience of Reactive Repression is a matter of degree. It can be fleeting, episodic, or chronic, and usually is a reaction to an emotionally charged stressful change in their lives, or a trauma, e.g. relationship breakups, medical issues, job lost, etc. as well as emotionally traumatic events from earlier years. Physiological factors can be responsible for depression. If I suspect this I would recommend a medical consultation. I primarily utilize psychodynamic and cognitive behavioral techniques when working with depression.

Depression is more than feeling sad. Depression can hit at various times and for many reasons. When you are not able to "snap out" of feeling down, no matter what may be happening around you, it is likely time to contact a counselor. Not opposed to medication, but a proponent of getting to the root of the problem, I advocate for therapy as a first step, and depending on the level of depression, we will discuss the pros and cons of exploring alternate routes. Renewed peace and joy is always my goal with clients. Countless have attested to feeling like "themselves" once they made the difficult, but rewarding decision to connect with a Licensed Professional.

I believe if you’re battling depression, you could be “de-pressing” important thoughts and feelings – or at least attempting to. One cure for depression is “ex-pression.” I can help you learn ways to express yourself in ways that will dissipate your depression. Your depression may also be a sign that you aren’t living the life you want to live. I can help you discover and create that life – a life free of paralyzing depression. Contact me today to learn to how.
