Depression is often controlled by our unconscious feelings, thoughts, memories, and dreams. Drawing on Positive Psychology and other therapeutic models, I help clients to understand how we relive early experiences unconsciously, and I coach them on behavioral techniques they can use to overcome the vicious cycle of negativity and change their present. These include a blend of empirically based techniques clients can use at work or at home to overcome depression, end self-sabotage, and get unstuck.

I will determine the severity of depression and the need for medication. We will figure out if depression is an acute response to a crisis or situation. We will look at the causes, your experience of depression, what are triggers for depression, and ways to cope with it and give you better control of it. If it is a recurrent depression we will find ways for you to cope, and develop good support networks if you don't have them.

When depressed we lack the energy and motivation to care for ourselves as if we are undeserving or incapable of loving ourselves. Often, depression signifies that we feel hopeless and helpless to be happy with ourselves and/or create a happier life for ourselves. The answer lay with mourning the loss of what we mistakenly believed was indispensable to looking ahead with hopeful optimism. Our relationship will provide the support to help you let go of these self limiting beliefs, while encouraging you and guiding you to develop your inner resources, and take advantage of resources available to you.

Children and adolescents who act out due to symptoms of AD/HD, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, Autistic Spectrum Disorders, and School Underachievement constantly receive negative feedback from parents, teachers, and peers. This results in underlying feelings of helplessness and hopelessness leading to depression. I motivate such children to develop self-control which leads to improved academic and social skills. This leads to social acceptance and academic achievement and self-esteem rises. Helplessness and hopelessness dissipate and depression and anxiety lessen.

I help my clients learn how to let go of their depression and replace it with acceptance and joy. Depression often occurs when we take situations and others' behavior personally. When we think they mean something about our self-worth. You can learn how to define your own self-worth and not allow anything outside yourself to determine your mood. I can help you learn how to take better care of yourself by learning to heal the deeper feelings underneath your depression like sadness, helplessness and loneliness.

This is a broad broad category. There are as many things that people call depression, and as many kinds of depressed people, as there are shades of color. The first step is to rule out physical problems – there are several that masquerade as depression – and then to rule out the simple solutions. Any good self-help book or website can give you advice on coping with the inertia that is so problematic in depression. If those are not helping enough, it is time for a careful assessment of your particular brand of what you might be calling depression. It can involve any mixture of anger, resentment, internal pressure, fear, and more. How we handle all that depends on what we find

If you have a pulse and a heart, you have been sad. Using the science of happiness rather than standard interventions for depression we focus on increasing positive emotion, engagement, and meaning rather than directly targeting depressive symptoms. In using these interventions with clients I have noted the effects of these interventions in a variety of settings. In informal and clinical settings these interventions have commonly been reported to me and referred to as “life-changing.”

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.

Sometimes depression happens because you have experienced a loss: perhaps a loved one died, or a relationship has ended, or you have lost a job or an opportunity. When these and other events happen, you may feel depleted of energy as if there is no reason to go move on, you may lose sleep or sleep more, you may lose weight or gain more. I will help you understand what you are feeling, and together we will find ways to replenish your inner energy so that you are able to be a peace with what has happened and move forward in a direction that brings a sense of fulfillment in life.

Depression is a life challenge that is shared by many of us and treated in a variety of ways. Letting go of self blame and regret may be your need. Examining past history and increasing or altering perspective about how this affects your self worth may bring relief. Addressing present thought patterns and how they relate to mood and behavior is practical and beneficial. But, receiving consistent support by a trained, compassionate and dedicated professional who will remain by your side through attempts to change may be the most important and positive step toward relieving depression and that is what I bring to our sessions.
