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.

I have helped clients who have been told they have "treatment resistant depression" and clients who have tried many approaches to reduce depression. The root cause of depression is often upsetting experiences like criticism, rejection, embarrassment, job loss, relationship endings, emotional neglect, childhood abuse, midlife career transitions. These events diminish how we view ourselves and our ability to get what we want in life. Client review: "I have struggled off and on with depression and have seen numerous counselors over the past 15 years. Working with Kalpana, I made significant progress in a relatively short period of time and years later my depression has not returned".

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!

Depression is a very common but also serious condition. Symptoms of depression can vary from person to person depending on gender, culture, or age. Most often people with depression feel sad or empty for long periods of time. Anger, shame, and irritation can also be part of depression. Sometimes these emotions can be experienced in the body as aches or nausea. Depression can affect one’s thinking patterns and physical health. In some cases, depression can lead people to consider suicide. Therapy for depression can take on different forms depending on the person’s needs. Most often, we look at patterns of thinking and learn to moderate the way we view ourselves.

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.

My approach to treating depression is not one that focuses solely on one treatment technique (e.g., CBT or Interpersonal Therapy);instead, depression is examined in terms of the biological, psychological, social and cultural factors that may be contributing to reduced functioning. In that way, treatment decisions are more apt to be effective for each individual.

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.

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.

Depression is a difficult time where we may feel as though there is no hope of ever getting back to feeling motivated and excited about our self and our life again. Depression may be because of a situation in our life that has become painful or it may have to do with our biochemistry being out of balance or it can be because of both. I work with adults and adolescents. When I am with clients who are depressed it is my job to first help the client understand how they can get the short term and long term help they require. It is important to be with a kind, compassionate and experienced therapist that will hear you and help you get out of your isolation and find help and hope again!

All of us feel some degree of depression at some time in our life. It is a normal feeling. But sometimes depression becomes something bigger, and causes pain. Depression is a complicated experience that involves our thinking processes, our emotional experience and our physical functioning. Treatment for depression often involves addressing each of these domains. I offer a wealth of experience in using many different methods of psychotherapy to help people with depression. Medication often offers some relief of symptoms, but medication does not address the underlying causes of depression, which is the work of psychotherapy, the work I do.

Depression is serious and often goes untreated in children and teens because the signs can look different than those we associate with adult depression. Symptoms might be overlooked or minimized as part of growing up or something that will pass with time. Up to 15% of children and adolescents have symptoms of depression at any given time. Depression has a negative impact on a child’s development, school performance, and relationships. Untreated, it can lead to unhealthy and dysfunctional patterns of coping such as withdrawal, isolation, bullying, delinquency, drug use, promiscuity, self-injury, or self-destruction. The good news is that DEPRESSION IS TREATABLE! Child/teen Therapy is effective....

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.

It is normal for people to go through periods of life where they are feeling "down" or low in energy. Sometimes there are events and circumstances that create this mood, but sometimes it comes without any rhyme or reason. Whether stemming from a traumatic life event or not, feeling depressed is not something that you need to feel guilty or ashamed of, it is something to overcome and grow stronger from. You do not have to overcome these negative thoughts and feelings alone. I provide a place for you to come and be heard, a place to share the pain that you are going through and your story, a place to share your heart. I will help carry your burdens until you get to a place of strength.

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.
