Depression can be so internally oppressive. I love helping people struggling with depression learn ways to free themselves of this awful dark cloud. To begin with is to identify the underlying the source of the depression. Often people believe that they are not good enough or are not loveable deep down inside. People define themselves by their family of origin and or experiences and filter their world in this manner. Part of treatment will be identifying these feelings and finding more accurate thinking patterns. You don't have to feel this way!

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.

Depression is a very manageable illness. Most of my clients get better if they commit to working regularly on a combination of fronts (regular sessions, changes in lifestyle, psychopharmacological referral/coordination with prescriber, creating structure, regular support). I've worked with many clients who thought they'd never get better but, after some time and patience, depression does get better. Everyone is different and it often takes time to make significant changes.

Understanding depression as anger at past events can help clients to understand and gain incite as to why they no longer care about life in the present moment. Often anxiety accompanies depression as worry about the future makes thoughts overactive. By using acceptance and commitment along with day to day wellness methods, we can work together to transition you back into looking forward to living your life in the moment as best as we all can. It is not an easy task to manage our lives successfully but staying stuck will only bring more regret.

It can often seem like society expects us to be happy and positive at all times, that any admission of sadness or a loss of motivation, energy, or engagement with life is a personal failure. But Depression isn't a personal failure, and it is also more than just "feeling sad". If you find yourself down in the hole of disconnection, surrounded by a fog that is interfering with your life and relationships, you need a hand to help you climb out. A trained therapist understands the mechanics of depression and can help you understand it and find strategies to make your way up and out of it, and back into the light. Please contact me so we can begin to work on this process together.

Depression is generally considered a reaction to physical or psychological stress, and any number of stressors can lead to depressive symptoms. These can include personality, environmental, or biomedical factors, i.e. chemical imbalances in the brain, trauma, and/or situational factors. Sometimes illness or certain drugs (including alcohol, prescribed medications, etc.) as well as improper diet and nutrition contribute to depression. Treatment includes identifying and understanding the underpinnings and circumstances of your depression (insight), learning helpful coping skills, and getting extra support so you can feel better and recover.

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.

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.

Depression is a big umbrella word today to describe a large tree of disorders that fall under the general rubric of a low mood. For some people depression is something that follows them around and never disappears completely. For others depression is accompanied by the change in weather and is particularly disabling in the winter months when there is less sun. Working in talk therapy together with a psychiatric consultation and possible medication is the gold standard to treat depression. I work together with psychiatrists when needed to alleviate my patients depression and allow for the talk therapy to be more effective.

Depression is a wake-up call that something is wrong in your life. The theory of depression I have grown to respect is that depression is often a blessing in disguise. This blessing is certainly counterintuitive to what most people think of when they feel depressed or see a loved one stuck in bed all day. Your life screams, "Pay attention! Something needs to change.!" Depression is so powerful it can reduce a life to total despair and decompensation. This is where I come in. I teach my patients how to listen closer to their instincts and learn what depression is telling them about their life that needs to be set right, thus allowing healing and light, back into a dark and lonely place.

Sometimes depression is a chronic feeling of loss of energy, sadness, and inability to take action. At times, it can be triggered by certain situations in life. Depending on the specifics for an individual, help may consist of working with internal beliefs or may consist of working to improve a life situation, or a combination of these. I get to know the client, finding out how they experience the depression, what is going on in their life, what may have first started the depression, and what thoughts they experience. I can also work in conjunction with a psychiatrist where needed. Therapy interactions help the client see and embrace more positive and effective thoughts and energies.

We all feel sad or “down” occasionally, however, if someone feels sad all or most of the time, has a loss of interest in their favorite activities of life, feels worthless or guilty for no reason, feels life is empty and meaningless, he or she may be in the midst of a serious depression. A good rule of thumb is that, if someone feels this way every day for two weeks, it’s time to call a therapist. Together we can properly evaluate if you or your loved one is suffering from major depression or Low-Grade Depression (Dysthymia), whether the depression may be recurrent or may be part of a Bipolar Disorder, and how it can be helped by therapy and/or medication

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.
