Depression is something most people struggle with at one point in their lives. However, sometimes the depression becomes unmanageable and begins to bleed into our daily lives causing stress, strained relationships, and change in personality to the point that we no longer recognize who we are. My approach is to start where my clients are currently in their depression, creating small obtainable goals that they can meet, and providing encouragement and understanding during the treatment process. I teach skills like mindfulness and emotion regulation to help my clients manage their symptoms outside of the therapeutic environment.

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.

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 — that unshakable, helpless, empty, heavy, irritated, or numb feeling — can be triggered by stressful life events, be it conflicts, life transitions; unresolved grief, relationship breakup, or impoverished relationships. Remember that stressful events in life do not cause depression. But depression often occurs within a reciprocal interpersonal context. You can overcome depression and get your life back with the support of counseling/therapy wherein you’ll learn new ways of perceiving and coping with problems with your family, friends, or co-workers; you’ll learn new ways of expressing yourself and interacting with people. You’ll regain a sense of control and pleasure in life.

I think that my most important technique is to assist individuals in recognizing that depression is a condition and is not a form of laziness; many individuals have expressed a sense of relief as others have encouraged them to "just get over it". I utilize a combination of support and encouragement, including discussions of successes and challenges. I strongly discourage the use of the word "should" and any judgmental language. In addition, I believe that there is no specific time table for recovery, and that each individual is unique in their recovery.

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.

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.
