Depression can rob you of joy, peace, energy, health, and even relationships. It can leave you not wanting to get out of bed in the morning and not enjoying pleasurable activities you have enjoyed in the past. If you have suffered under depression for many years, you may not even be aware that you are depressed, because you are so used to it. Depression may seem like a usual condition to you. By addressing the underlying causes with a professional, you can progress and move forward to a place that is less heavy feeling, more hopeful, and more full of life.

I utilize a protocol of cognitive therapy tools along with mild exercise, healthy diet, medical attention as needed, proper sleep, etc to overcome the depression. If there are other issues related to the depression then those need addressed as well. For example, loss of a job and the job search can create a lot of stress and even depression, loss of self worth, etc. So both need to be teated in order to overcome the depression. Sometimes losses and grieving can turn into depression such as the break up of a relationship. The ensuing depression needs treated but also help to grieve the loss to gain the ability to move on.

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.

Leaving clinical depression (also known as major depression) untreated can have serious consequences. Studies have shown that untreated, it can lead to drug and/or alcohol abuse and addiction, behavioral problems that can upset personal and business relationships, and even interfere with recovery from serious illness. Additionally, it can have adverse affects on your sleeping and eating habits, and, perhaps worst of all, how you feel about yourself. Maybe family or friends have told you to “pull yourself together”, but as much as you would like to, it just doesn’t work. It rarely does. Clinical depression requires treatment from a trained professional. Without treatment, it can have devastating effects on your life, including health, career and...(view profile to read more)

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 can range from mild to severe. Depression can be a result of many factors or a combination of factors. It is important to first understand the severity of the depression and take the necessary steps to insure the safety of the client. Depression can be a symptom that says something is going on in your life that needs to be addressed. I believe that treating the symptom without addressing the underlying issue does a disservice to the client.

Did you know that the number of people who suffer with depression is similar to the number of people who suffer from seasonal allergies? I bet that is a surprise to you, since we don't hear people talking about depression like they talk about their allergies. People who suffer with depression are not only dealing with the depression but they are often doing it alone. Let us walk with you in this process so that you are not alone. We use a variety of techniques and when necessary, work collaboratively with psychiatrists to proscribe medication. Depression can feel like a heavy blanket - of crying, sadness, lack of motivation, apathy. Let us help you throw off the blanket and start thriving!
