A common understanding is that depression is anger turned inward. I help the client understand the sources of their depression, both biological and environmental, and build on their strengths as well as build new sources of identity to cope with the depression. In this process I am helping them create a toolbox to survive difficult emotion and strengthen their core self. This might include mindfulness work, grief work, reframing their personal narratives, coaching around new life habits and activities, learning how to set small goals for themselves, and examining the typical roles they play in their relationships, including the examination of these typical roles for satisfaction.

Depression is a most debilitating condition and clients can be helped to effectively reduce their sadness. Individuals who struggle with depression usually are trapped in a cycle of self-defeating behaviors that perpetuates the deep feelings of despair. Clients can receive respectful support in facing the issues that keep them enslaved by their grief and be freed from the depths of hopelessness.

When you're in that dark place, it can feel hard to find a way out. Trust me, I know. I've been there. Lots of people have. Others overcome depression and you can, too. Depression often results from heavy, pent-up emotions that stay stuck inside you. When you release those emotions, it's like a fog lifting. You begin to experience relief and see the world in a new, and more optimistic, way. I can offer you a safe space to share your pain and get to the root cause of what's troubling you. I'll offer you tools to help you release your feelings safely and experience emotional comfort. My goal is to not only help you feel better but become a stronger and wiser person in the process.

Depression can be overwhelming, and it can usually be improved and/or healed by using a combination of treatments. I will listen to your story until you feel really heard and understood. Then we may look at specific actions you may take to decrease symptoms. We may use Internal Family Systems Therapy (IFS) to help you listen to the part of you that holds the depressed feeling. It is amazing that the depression can lift by using the IFS approach to caring for yourself.

There are multiple reasons why an individual might experience such a state as depression. Often I have found that it is typically being overwhelmed by lifes challenges and uncertainties which then leads to apathy. Other times it is a event like the loss of of job, a loved one, marital difficulties or even just a biological issues. The first goal, then in therapy, is to assess the underlying cause. Once this is accomplished, it is then possible to look for solutions that are tailored to the individual's specific needs so that time is not wasted in pursuing goals.

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.
