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.

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.

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.

Depression is often a product of frustration and anger becoming jammed up within the self; as it continues, feelings of hopeless and helplessness can be generated and turn into a story that we can create when we're depressed in which we see ourselves as victims and without power. Depression may also reflect life style issues, notably sleep deprivation and lack of exercise. Medical issues also need to be evaluated with regard to their influence on mood. Depression can be usefully seen in behavioral terms as a "call for action." I will compassionately hold your depressed feelings with you, and explore behaviors to alleviate your frustration, particularly specific to effective self-expression.

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!

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.

Depression is often a very debilitating condition that many people live with. It keeps us from living the vital, healthy, whole lives we are meant to live. Coming to understand the underlying causes of depression (often associated with anxiety) is a important part of my work. Approaching the depressed client with compassion,promoting healing and resolution, we can move through the pain and disempowerment to a re-emergence of life and energy.
