If you are feeling overwhelmed, have a loss of energy, feel hopeless, have anger and irritability you could be suffering from depression. The most important thing to do to overcome depression is ask for help.

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.

Depression is one of the most common mental health challenges that people struggle with. According to the World Health Organization (WHO) 350 million people worldwide suffer from depression. Fortunately, in many cases, with the assistance of a mental health professional, people can be empowered to overcome their natural tendency to feel depressed. I help clients explore patterns that lead them down the road to depression and help them replace negative thought patterns with healthier ones.

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.

While we all have the experience of feeling "down in the dumps" or "bummed out", or just "having a bad day", depression goes and hurts deeper than that. Clinical depression is prevalent in our society today. It has been called "the common cold of mental illness". The experience of depression can seem overwhelming, even crushing, but the good news is that it is very treatable. Psychotherapy and medication are very effective in treating clinical depression, and people can come through the depression to experience joy in life.

Depression My approach to depression is multifaceted. We will utilize conventional talk therapy to help you to gain insight along with Cognitive Therapy to help you to look at your belief system about yourself and the world and to write new scripts for yourself. We will also look at historical, nutritional and environmental factors that may be contributing to your depression. I have found that for many people, addressing nutrition alone can be as powerful if not more powerful that the use of medication. Research over the last several decades has consistently found that, in the long run, psychotherapy is more effective than medication. My goal is to help to teach you skills and a lifest

Up and down days are common for us all. Sometimes, the down can really be down. During these times we tend to isolate ourselves and reduce the amount of care we give ourselves. Sometimes we may actually do things that hurt us. The best thing we can do is get help from a person. This counters the isolating tendency and increases the self-care. I understand depression, have experienced myself, and know the challenge it is to reach out. You are doing a great thing to ask for help. I admire and affirm that. We can work together to help you feel better.

Depression can make it hard to engage with your loved ones, focus on your work, get out of bed, and even enjoy the things you used to. And it's even more frustrating when it's out of your control and perhaps for reasons you're unaware of. In a safe and compassionate space, I can help you understand and identify your triggers for depression and help you develop healthy coping strategies to manage your symptoms.

I'll help you find your Authentic Self, your spirit, that part of you who is always connected to God. I'll help you shine, and feel unconditionally loved. I call that grace, and it is yours for the asking. I'll show you how to receive it. You are worth it!

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.

Feeling disinterested, unmotivated, lonely and stuck can spiral down into problems at work, absenteeism, and interpersonal conflicts; then spiral further into disconnection, complete lack of interest in people, place and things, spontaneous uncontrollable crying and excessive sleep. I can help you pull yourself up out of the quicksand that is depression. With compassion, understanding, education, encouragement and collaboration hope can be restored.
