I work with many clients who struggle with different kinds of depression. Sometimes it is related to a difficult life event or events. Sometimes it is biologically-based. Other times it may be both. While medication may be warranted in many cases, it is just one piece of the puzzle. My therapeutic style involves respectful probing of the source of the pain and sadness. Many people feel unable to move on from a particular event so I work hard to help my clients release themselves from their pain and agony. You deserve peace and happiness.

Almost everyone suffers from some depression in their lives. But some people experience it at a much deeper level and have more difficulty coping with it. When it lingers or gets really bad, therapy is a place to begin to try and understand where it is coming from and work on ways to cope with it and find ways to possibly overcome it. My approach is active as it combines traditional talk therapy with solution oriented therapy.

Depression can make you feel hopeless, alone and empty. It is, however, treatable. During psychotherapy sessions, I work with individuals and couples to give them the tools they need to cope and eventually thrive. The relationship with the therapist is integral to the healing process. I work with each person to help him/her regain confidence and a sense of wellbeing.

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.

Often depression is held in place by thoughts and beliefs that suck the hope out of one's life. Therapy is effective in finding the source of the problem and providing tools for intercepting and changing the problematic thought patterns. Medication may or may not be needed to get the process started. When one gains the ability to envision a rewarding life, it often ends the cycle of depression.

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.

Seeking therapy for depression is not an easy decision. It's hard to find the line between normal feelings of unhappiness and clinical depression. This is especially true since depressions makes it harder to make decisions and leaves you feeling like it's pointless to try new things. If you have been feeling low for more than two weeks and you have noticed other symptoms such changes in your sleeping or eating habits, then contact me to find out if therapy is the right choice. We will start therapy with a comprehensive evaluation to work out whether you have clinical depression and what is causing it. Then we'll use the most effective methods to alleviate your symptoms as soon as possible.

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.

Sometimes my clients think they know why they are depressed. Sometimes they are right but, at other times, understanding the true root of depression requires looking at places which do not meet the eye at first. As a therapist, I assist my clients in observing, exploring and gaining an accurate understanding of their depression. New doors and possibilities in life then open and are built upon the foundation of self awareness.

Depression can create feelings of sadness, fatigue, restlessness, and a lack of enjoyment in things that you just can't move beyond. It can get in the way of basic tasks (eating, sleeping, getting out of bed), or sometimes you can get to the things you need to, but just don't "feel like yourself". Depression is not a sign of weakness, and seeking help is a sign of strength. The worthlessness, helplessness, hopelessness, and sometimes thoughts of ending your life, can all be helped with treatment. We can work together on understanding your depression, making small changes, and finding ways to help you move forward in your life. Take the next step and schedule a consultation to get started

Depression is the single most common issue affecting people. Fortunately, it also has the highest incidence of successful treatment. Cognitive-behavioral therapy has been shown to be extremely effective in helping people overcome their feelings of depression, sadness and low self-worth. Depression is often debilitating and can negatively impact all areas of life. Don't continue to suffer.

Depression is painful, it can disrupt many areas of your life-- from personal relationships, work, organization and cleanliness, your sleep, appetite, and sex life. It can even make someone not want to go on. It is one of the most common problems I treat. Despite how common and painful it can be, there is good news. There are a number of highly effective treatments for depression supported by science. I utilize Cognitive Therapy, Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT), Behavioral Activation, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and when appropriate some skills from Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). I also incorporate physical exercise and meditation when appropriate.
