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.

As a Mood Disorders Specialist, I focus not only on depression; I also assist with bipolar I and II disorders. Depression can make a person feel sluggish and unmotivated.

Managing depression can be difficult because we may feel alone, like we do not want to burden others for support or understanding. This can contribute to periods of feeling alone and suffering alone and in silence. Now is the time to act. Please contact me or another therapist for aide. We are here and very willing to those going through depression.

Depression can feel overwhelming and unshakable but is in fact, very treatable. I seek to deeply understand the specific nature of each individual's depression. Together, we consider the aspects of your life that might be contributing to your depression. Maximizing your strengths, increasing useful skills and developing thought processes that support growth and healthy living, all help to create a life that feels hopeful and meaningful. I support clients in creating workable and realistic solutions to problems while finding ways to create the life you have been wanting to move towards.

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.

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.

Research shows that the most effective treatment for depression is psychotherapy. Depression can range from feeling down to major symptoms such as having trouble even getting out of bed or contemplating suicide (if you have suicidal thoughts or plans, call the National Suicide Prevention Line at 1-800-273-8255). Online counseling is effective for depression because it is easy to access: you can start treatment without even leaving the house.

You may feel like you're drowning. With little motivation or energy, every task feels a million times harder than it should. You may feel completely alone; like no one could possibly understand your pain. How do I know? I've been there before. Depression is incredibly hard to manage alone. I know what it takes to overcome the challenge of depression and I regularly help my clients regain happiness in their lives too. During the therapy process, I help clients let go of things that aren't working anymore, regain their energy, motivation, happiness, and belief in themselves. Let me help you feel better!

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.

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.

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!
