My personal experience with depression has given me helpful knowledge in how to tackle this insidious emotional state. Depression often robs us of the joy we so heartily want in life and can lead to feelings of loneliness, exhaustion and emotional isolation. Seeking help for depression is key to learning manage the thought processes that weigh down the body/mind during depressive episodes. My approach is rooted in mindfulness practices helping each person learn to track and trace their thought patterns related to depressive thinking and felt-sense emotions along with engaging the body in self-care activities aimed at building a health sense of self-efficacy.

Being mired in depression is one of the worst feelings in life. When someone feels like they have been turned upside down and the life has been poured out of them - it may seem like an impossible dream to feel better. But depression is often treatable. I approach depression work from a cognitive, behavioral and emotional approach. Once the mood starts to life we then can delve deeper into why you are depressed in the first place to help keep you from going down that hole again.

Depression can happen to anyone and does happen to one in four of us over our lifetimes. Different factors that make it more likely to happen include biological make-up, upbringing, and our reaction to life events. Furthermore, depression is often accompanied by other feelings such as guilt, shame, anger, and anxiety. The good news is that therapy is a very effective way of eliminating depression. When you see me for therapy to treat depression, we will identify any events contributing to it and create a plan together to help you feel better.

Chicago, Illinois

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.

When working with clients who suffer from depression, I create a safe and comfortable space where clients can feel honored and protected.

Depression sucks. It can make you feel hopeless, empty, and alone, even when things in your life are going well. Whether your depression is chemical, situational, or a combination of both, I can help you find ways to act against that depressed feeling and take steps towards feeling better. It is common for Depression to impact your sense of self-worth, and vice versa. Thus the most effective therapeutic treatment for Depression is to re-focus on the traits and values that define who you are as a person separate from that feeling; you can then use those strengths to fight the Depression and get back to feeling like your old self again. I specialize in treating Post-Partum Depression as well.
