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.

Research has shown that the most effective approach to depression is a combination of cognitive-behavioral therapy and medication (if appropriate). I provide compassionate support for the painful challenges of depression while teaching you to develop effective coping strategies including the ability to lessen negative thinking and increase their enjoyment of daily life. If you are taking or want to try anti-deprresants, I can help with medication management. I also help family members of those with depression manage the stress it causes them as well as learn to use effective approaches to support their relative.

Depression has been called "anger turned inwards" and it seems that when a person talks about their depression, they may have hurt and anger underneath it. It's typically not easy to get to these complex feelings and subjects alone. With counseling, the layers are peeled away, the emotions find relief and the person begins to feel better. Depression is treatable.

When working with clients who suffer from depression, I create a safe and comfortable space where clients can feel honored and protected. I work with clients to discover how it is that they have come to struggle the way they do. I help them to practice self care and self respect during the times that they are down and live life without boundaries when they are in a good mental space. I help clients with depression to let go of the judgement they have of themselves or that they might hear from the world.

My approach to the treatment of depression is step-wise. I like to diagnose the nature of depression, determine the need for medication, use of supportive, empathic, an cognitive behavioral techniques.

You’ve tried counseling for depression before. They gave you exercises on how to think positively; they didn’t work. They gave you anti-depressants; they may have helped but not enough. That is because depression is a way of dealing with life and some form of it has worked for you in the past. It hasn’t made life fun, but it’s made is bearable. It’s time to learn a new way of dealing with life and leave depression behind. If your depression is new to you, it may be the result of some event in your life. We can work with that too. You don’t have to be depressed just because you’re feeling down today.

Current research indicates that 1:5 of the US population will suffer from a psychological health problem like depression at some point in their lives. Psychological health problems like depression is a real, medical conditions and not just "all in the mind".

Though depression can be a complex emotional disorder, these feelings are among the most successfully treatable health conditions that we experience in our lives. In a compassionate and collabortive setting healing is achieved.
