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.

While external circumstances and biology definitely can affect our moods, so can our underlying beliefs about ourselves and our relationships. My goal is to teach people how to explore their feelings without being overwhelmed by them. Once we become more connected safely to ourselves, our connection with the external world begins to change too. We may also look at changing diet and exercise, find ways to balance work, play and rest so you can feel replenished and nurture what is meaningful in your life.

Feeling hopeless, worthless, joyless, without choices or chances is a desperate way to be. Maybe you feel this way every winter. Maybe a certain situation has you overwhelmed. Could be midlife hormones, or maybe you can't point to any clear cause at all. Depression has ahold of you. My approach is to find and treat the cause, and help you confront the traumas, people, suppressed angers and prolonged disappointments that contribute to this suffering. You'll learn effective mood management tools, and I'll help you accelerate the ability to recognize what routinely triggers depression in you. Therapy will help you create a well of resilience. Let's start today.

Depression can be very frightening and dangerous. It takes many forms and requires sensitive and flexible treatment. I work with people who are depressed to understand the ways in which behaviors that are efforts to find relief can compound their suffering, for example crawling into bed or seeking comfort from substances like food, alcohol, street and prescription drugs. Together we develop resources that are more effective and reliable means of improving their disordered mood both as short and long term solutions. Over time, I work with people to understand their vulnerability to depressive episodes and find strategies to minimize their intensity and recurrence.
