There may be a time in your life when you feel lonely, sad, and uninterested in things that you once considered fun to do.

Depression is sometimes referred to as the "common cold" of mental health. At its root depression is about loss and loss always in some way has to do with love. In depression we lose a sense of connection to ourselves, to our relationships, to our tasks and even to God. In therapy, I provide a safe environment where you can face your sadness and loss, talk about it and reconnect in a caring place. Healing comes as deep pain is brought into loving and compassionate connection.

Research shows that the most effective treatment for depression is psychotherapy. Depression can range from feeling down to major symptoms such as having trouble even getting out of bed or contemplating suicide (if you have suicidal thoughts or plans, call the National Suicide Prevention Line at 1-800-273-8255). Online counseling is effective for depression because it is easy to access: you can start treatment without even leaving the house.

Resident in Counseling, Supervised by Thomas Lamp, LPC

I view depression from existential, cognitive behavioral, psychodynamic, social learning, systems, and medical models. I view that shame, low self-concept, and deeper identity and existential issues often do underlie moderate and severe depression, and support SSRI or SNRI interventions for postpartum moms and clients with moderate to severe depression, with recurrence. I employ assessments and CBT homework assignments to help clients reduce their negative cognitive lens, and encourage client resilience through positive coping skills (e.g. exercise), meaning-making, and positive psychology exercises (e.g. gratitude and altruism).

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.

Having worked my way through my own depression/hell on earth, with the help of a professional to 'guide' me, I have learned the importance of 'working together' in a way that combines use of: a) what I bring in the way of safety, empathy, presence, patience, curiosity, and practical tools; with b) your own ability to risk venturing into some dark & difficult territories -- dealing with demons such as: apathy, emptiness, meaninglessness, disappointment, disillusionment, hopelessness, stuckness, loneliness, shame, guilt, self-disgust, unmet expectations, unfulfilled dreams, losses, ambiguity, confusion, fallibility, fears, doubts, imperfections, insecurities and whatever others may emerge.
