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.

Depression is seen by some as a biochemical imbalance that is genetically transferred to the individual and can only be treated through medication. This might be part of the picture, but also a depressive, negative style of thinking can result in changes in the brain that bring about this unhealthy biochemical imbalance - and psychological treatment can change the thinking style that leads to this imbalance, rendering the individual to be free of reliance on medication and overall improved life that lasts on it's own merits.

Depression can be biological or situational. It should always be taken seriously, and a person who believes they are suffering from depression should see their doctor, a counselor, or if they have suicidal ideas or thoughts, then they should call 911 or go to their closest emergency room. The suicide hotline # is !-800-273-Talk. I'm an expert in this and I'll help pave the way for you. Brain chemicals and hormones may be a factor in this, but there also may be situations such as a death of someone close, even the loss of a pet, loss of a job, divorce, loss of a baby, PPD...People with depression definitely DO NOT need to be told "get over it". It is a legitimate concern. Don't be a judge!

Karen’s approach in assisting people suffering from depression varies with each person. She initially searches for the reasons causing the depression, and together she and the client will pursue the changes needed to alleviate the symptoms. Karen uses the word picture with her clients of viewing depression as being down in a valley, and by putting the accepted interventions into practice, she can assist them in climbing out of the valley. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a well researched therapy that has been shown to be effective in treating people suffering from depression, and this is the intervention Karen most often uses along with other accepted techniques.

People suffering from depression have more negative thoughts about themselves, the world, and the future. Those who are depressed also tend to feel more helpless, hopeless and worthless. Research with depressed individuals suggests that treatment focusing on changing peoples’ thought (cogntive behavioral therapy) is a particularly effective treatment for depression. CBT as part of a comprehensive treatment plan is a very effective approach to treating depression.

Sometimes people feel depresed and can atribute it to stressful events that have occured, other times people can't quite put their finger on why they feel depressed, they just know they're not happy, feel unmotivated, and in some cases hopeless and helpless. What we now know about neuroscience helps us understand how and why depression occurs. I will help you determine whether your depression can be improved through talk therapy combined with some changes to your daily routine or whether a clinical depression has set in that may respond well to medication too. I have a wonderful, caring Doctor I work with who will assess clinical depression and offer recommendaitons if necessary.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) has been identified as the treatment of choice for depression. Whether you are on medication or not, CBT strategies can offer relief from the heavy weight of depressive symptoms. Kari's clients gain an understanding of what makes someone vulnerable to depression, how to increase motivation, energy, and positive mood. They will learn how to react to difficult situations with control and composure and better combat depressive tendencies in the future. Because teens display depression differently than adults, parents are often unsure about their son/daughter. Kari will provide an assessment and if necessary, a plan for effective treatment.

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.

I have a real heart for people who suffer from depression, having experienced depression personally myself. I primarily use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy in counseling people who are dealing with various levels of depression. I believe CBT is extremely effective in treating depression, because depression causes the mind to have distorted and untrue thoughts about oneself and a person's self-esteem and self-worth. I work hard to show a person that depression can be managed and that people can overcome depression by practicing Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and also by learning how to care for themselves in the physical, emotional and spiritual areas of their life

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!

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.

Feelings of sadness, worthlessness and hopelessness can be overwhelming and consuming. Depression is terrifying, but it is also treatable. Depression can present very differently for individuals, so thorough assessment and individual treatment planning are important. I use Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy interventions to identify negative core beliefs and self-talk that contribute to depression. EMDR is effective for depression by reprocessing early core memories having a lifelong impact.

My approach will vary depending on the severity of the depression. The first importance is stability of well being. From there I will work on thoughts, feelings, and behaviors working towards short terms goals. Goals will include small behavior changes that will help to be building blocks and also cognitive work on realistic truths. Often things like sleep, nutrition, and exercise are also evaluated and improved in the process as ways to counter depression.
