Research has provided significant evidence that depression can be improved or even eliminated with a wide range of interventions. Although many believe that the “gold standard” treatment for depression is medication and talk therapy, I believe that the least intrusive intervention should be targeted first. Try talking to a therapist before getting medication prescribed. I will help you examine how you’re thinking about the problem may be actually supporting your depression, how your relationships may be contributing to your sense of sadness and frustration and how you can begin to make concrete behavioral modifications to begin the path to recovery. Recent studies show that medication is most eff....

Depression. The pain can be unbearable. The tears and fatigue can seem endless. The hopelessness can be physically palpable. None of this is your fault. Life is tough and the "human condition" gives us built-in frailties, flaws, and vulnerabilities. Some of us are more susceptible to depression triggers and stressors than others. But please do not despair. Do know that you can feel better. Evidence-based treatments, such as, cognitive-behavior therapy (CBT), acceptance and behavior therapy (ACT), and others have helped many people regain hope and rebuild satisfying relationships, careers, and lives.

Depression is something most everyone experiences to some degree in their lifetime. Some people may even feel suicidal at times. It is different from sadness or bereavement. And there are different types of depression and with a variety of causes. As a therapist, the first step is to understand the cause of the suffering. This may require open mindedness and non-judgement. I will use a variety of techniques such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy,Mindfulness and Assertiveness Skill Building to help people move beyond apathy, low mood and hopelessness to a place of confidence, energy, and hopefulness.

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.

A very useful book is "The Instinct to Heal: Treating Anxiety and Depression Without Drugs or Talk Therapy" - written by a psychiatrist who is also a specialist in integrative medicine. Research shows that Omega 3 fatty acids (fish oils), exercise, thought-changing, Dr. Pennebaker writing techniques, light therapy and a simple biofeedback process called HeartMath can all help resolve depression. I offer all these interventions to my clients. Together we will find the right combination of treatments for you. You can have more energy, sleep better, feel more positive and look forward to your future! If depression has resulted in weight gain, you can safely lose that weight. Don't give up!

Depression is miserable! I work to accurately diagnose the severity of depression. This leads to devising a treatment plan with my client that immediately ensures their safety and begins to address their recovery. We determine if a psychiatric referral for medication is warranted. And we start working on the thoughts, feelings and behaviors that are driving the depression.

My approach will vary depending on the severity of the depression. The first importance is stability of well being. From there I will work on thoughts, feelings, and behaviors working towards short terms goals. Goals will include small behavior changes that will help to be building blocks and also cognitive work on realistic truths. Often things like sleep, nutrition, and exercise are also evaluated and improved in the process as ways to counter depression.

If you have found yourself experiencing prolonged periods of sadness, lack of interest in activities that normally interest you, feeling chronically tired or weighted down, or difficulty with sleep, you may be experiencing symptoms of depression. Depression is a very common and treatable condition. In therapy with me, we will spend some time obtaining some background information and what is causing your mood disturbance. We will work on discovering the underlying cause of your sadness, as well as recurrent themes or patterns that repeat themselves. Once you have a better understanding of your sadness, we can begin to work on developing coping strategies and making real and lasting changes.

Depression can be biological or situational. It should always be taken seriously, and a person who believes they are suffering from depression should see their doctor, a counselor, or if they have suicidal ideas or thoughts, then they should call 911 or go to their closest emergency room. The suicide hotline # is !-800-273-Talk. I'm an expert in this and I'll help pave the way for you. Brain chemicals and hormones may be a factor in this, but there also may be situations such as a death of someone close, even the loss of a pet, loss of a job, divorce, loss of a baby, PPD...People with depression definitely DO NOT need to be told "get over it". It is a legitimate concern. Don't be a judge!

I have a lot of background in treating patients with depression. I have achieved great results with people with certain forms of depression by making changes in their lifestyles, as well as cognitive behavioral changes. However, sometimes a patient's depression is too severe and talk therapy is not enough without medication. I work with a network of caring psychiatrists that have helped my patients with serious depression.
