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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.
