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!

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.

Depression counseling, because of its nature, requires commitment from both of us. Frequently I ask that you consult an MD about the value of medication in treating depression. It would allow you to more readily resolve the issues so that you are better able to find satisfactory ways to gain a perspective of your conflicts. This will allow you to move forward. There are books, workbooks, CD's, groups, all of which can be helpful.

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.

Depressive symptoms can stem from a variety of sources in an individual’s life usually reflecting a sense of loss. While medications can be helpful, it’s the behavioral symptoms associated with depression that can leave a lingering impact even after the depressive symptoms have stated to improve. Being pulled into depressive experiences over and over reflects both habits that can be difficult to break and/or subconscious issues that have yet to be addressed. Through processes such as hypnotherapy that address the whole person, we are able to capture a wider range of challenges and help the individual to regain the ground lost to he depressive illness.

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 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 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.

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!
