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. Give me a call today for a free consultation and we can put together a preliminary plan over the telephone.

When a person is depressed, understandably their primary focus is often on how to lift that depression; how to get rid of the symptoms that make life at best, just going through the motions, and at worst, entirely hopeless. And then there is often guilt in response to the messaging from well-meaning family and friends, who just don't seem to get it. My therapy approach to depression is to explore the factors that may have necessitated the symptoms of depression in the first place. More than likely something has occurred that led to a loss of purpose or meaning. From this starting point, there is hope of restoring the energy that has become inaccessible and resetting the life journey.

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.

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.

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.
