Depression is one of the most common conditions that bring people into therapy. I approach depression from various directions. I look at some of the characteristic distortions in the way depressed people think, for example, challenging the sense that their depression is unchanging when in fact they have periods of feeling okay. I work to activate people. People who are depressed are often unmotivated and isolate themselves, but being active and spending time with people tends to alleviate depression. I help people to look at their history, and the patterns in their family that have impacted on their being depressed. Put together, these approaches allow people to find ways to feel better.

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

It can be hard to express what is happening when dealing with depression, even when you want to let something out. Creative arts therapy will help with that through the use of approaches that don't rely solely on words. No prior experience is necessary and the work you do in session doesn't have to be big or complicated to help. Even just a single mark on the paper with an oil pastel can be enough. The therapist will move at a pace comfortable for each individual client and will adapt over time to meet the needs of each person.

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.

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.

No matter where it comes from, it can affect your mood, your thinking and your behavior. Because I have learned to deal with my own depression, I can help you deal with yours. I use a variety of modalities to work with you and get you out of your depression so that you can function better in your personal life and your career.

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.

I use a novel and extremely powerful approach that helps clients overcome the cruel cycle of compulsive depressive thoughts that keep reinforcing the depressed state. I also use a comprehensive body-centered therapy to help clients overcome persistent thought patterns and painful memories that can reinforce depression. The framework I use, which is based on a large body of evidence and is supported by the great success I've had in helping overcome depression, suggests that depression is maintained by a true addiction to painful and distressing thought patterns.

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.

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.”
