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)

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.

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.

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.

I believe it is important to look at a person's depression through the lens of family history and present life difficulties. Cognitive Behavior therapy has proven to be as effective as medication in many cases. Unresolved trauma can also be a contributing factor as well. I believe in looking at the full picture when trying it help a client. The anxiety that accompanies depression also should be addressed.

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.

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.
