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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.
