It can be very challenging to live day to day life when we are feeling chronically sad, overwhelmed, disconnected or lonely. To help people who are feeling depressed I meet them where they are at & seek to understand what they are thinking & feeling & how those thoughts & feelings are negatively affecting them. I find out what their ideal life would be - their hops & their dreams - what life would look like if they were no longer sad or depressed & I work with them to take small action steps to help them to feel stronger, happier, more fulfilled.

People may medicate their depression with TV, alcohol, food, isolation, or excessive sleep. One definition of depression is "anger turned inward." Talking with a psychologist is one of the best methods to understand your down moods, unusual thoughts, and self-defeating beliefs. Friends may say, "Get over it" about your jealousy toward your sister or your sadness over your girlfriend who texted "it's over" 3 months ago. If you are on medication for already-diagnosed depression, therapy is important to bring new ideas into your brain. If you are considering medication, start with talk therapy. Don't keep waiting for "it" to go away. What's at the bottom of your depression?

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.

As a mental health professional of considerable experience I've worked with individuals and couples with issues of demoralization, depressed mood and various forms of acute and long-standing depression. Depression isn't only an individual matter. as it sucks the life out of a couple and a family. In our work together clients often find hope by actively discussing their life issues, often their shame and anger at themselves and others for the predicaments they are a part of. Depression can be harmful medically and medical issues can cause depression. It can kill. I work well with the medical community, referring when necessary,

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.

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.
