I have great respect for people who are struggling in their life with an overall lack of satisfaction and motivation. I will help you identify those “triggers” that cause your low mood, and to develop coping skills to help you feel better. My clients report that they are able to sense and identify mood fluctuations as a result of our therapy sessions. Clients that are on medication can expect a team approach to their wellness, as I consult with physicians. If you are reading this right now, you or someone you care about is struggling with the ability to sustain important relationships. If you are currently feeling suicidal, please call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room.

Anxiety & depression are frequently interconnected and can have challenging effects on our personal and professional lives. Finding evidence based strategies to counter the negative thought patterns we have can become a valuable tool for our recovery. Together we can explore these patterns and find strategies to replace them with more positive and nurturing patterns.

Hopelessness, despair and melancholy are all words usually used to describe depression. The restoration of hope and optimism is the goal of therapy. The need for appropriate and accurate evaluation/assessment are of paramount importance. Once the clients level of depression has been determined, an individualized treatment plan will be developed accordingly, including mutually agreed upon goals.

My approach emphasizes teaching people to challenge negative thoughts and maladaptive thinking. It enables clients to recognize distorted thoughts that promote negative perspectives which contribute to symptoms of depression. By learning how to accentuate strengths and utilizing one's own unique skills, clients struggling with depression learn how to achieve a more positive outlook on life.

Depression is anger turned inward or against yourself. As anger builds within, an individual has three choices: To channel the anger energy assertively by expressing the feelings attached to the situations causing one to feel depressed; to express the anger through outbursts that can be very destructive to the self and others; to internalize the anger and become more depressed and less functional with time. My job is to enable you to learn how to identify and express feelings that are causing you to feel depressed. The next step is to change behaviors associated with your feelings freeing you from depressive thoughts and feelings.

Experiencing depression can be particularly trying on a person. At times, many individuals in your life may not understand what depression is or why you "can't snap out of it". It is crucial to understand that depression is not a choice and with time, effort, and the right treatment approach, you can work toward minimizing depressive symptoms and returning to your own personal level of success and happiness.

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.

When someone is living with depression it can feel like carrying a heavy weight or living under a dark cloud of isolation. It's often the case that an individual is unaware they are actually depressed. If you're uncertain of the signs and symptoms see this link: http://www.mentalhealthamerica.net/mental-health-screen/patient-health Treatment for depression can include a variety of methods. In my practice, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Emotion Focused Therapy and Mindfulness treatment models are most effective. These therapeutic strategies can be very powerful - not only in treating the symptoms of depression but they also enhance a greater sense of worth and well-being.

My approach to depression therapy begins with helping clients understand it is a treatable illness. I assess their symptoms (sleep, eating problems, lack of focus, irritability, anxiety, sadness) to determine their condition (major depression, situational depression, dysphoria). I also determine whether medication (administered under the supervision of a medical professional) may be necessary in addition to talk therapy. I employ compassionate listening to understand each client's issues and the root causes of their condition and develop a tailored treatment plan.

My goal with clients who suffer from depression is to get you up and going again so you can enjoy your life more, and experience greater meaning and satisfaction. Depression can make a person feel exhausted and gloomy, and it tends to make people think things will never get better. But depression is one of the most treatable emotional disorders. I am committed to supporting my depressed patients to become "formerly depressed," and to have some energy again, to have something to look forward to, to feel like life is meaningful again.
