I have found the Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) model of therapy to be highly effective at helping people to overcome depression. Much of depression takes place when people have thoughts that result in powerful negative thinking. This negative thinking leads to negative feelings, which lead to negative behaviors that keep the person in a negative spiral. Consider how you might engage in this dynamic. If you do, something needs to and can be done to break that loop. I’ve broken the loop for people many times in the last decade and can do the same for you.

Depression looks like a great deal of things depending on the person. There are two major types of people who are depressed: Lethargic depression where there is generally a lack of energy and associated symptoms and anxious depression where it's hard to sleep and your mind is in 1,001 places. Depression is a hard "nut" to crack. However, with a motivated client, I have seen many populations not only overcome their depression, but thrive from their past experiences and utilizing those experiences to help others

Depression is an area I have focused on for more than a decade. I help people to gain a deeper insight about themselves, thereby improving their ability to make better decisions and decrease their depression. I've recently heard a statistic that ~1/3 of American women have taken medication for it at some point in their lives. If true, that is an astounding figure. Unfortunately the medicine does not cure, but only supresses the symptoms. For long-term success, therapy is an essential component.

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 and anxiety are the two most diagnosed psychological conditions in our Western world. The depressed clients who I have successfully treated came to me with a deep frustration in their souls.My approach is a multi-pronged approach. I work holistically to bring awareness to physical, biological and nutritional issues that might be contributing to the problem. Concurrently, In our psychotherapeutic work we develop tools to explore and express the unique and authentic life that each client so richly deserves. The soul's wishes can be expressed when self-limiting patterns are released and a more joyful life follows.

Depression is often a "check engine" light that there are things we love and enjoy doing, are good at, our passions and interests – but we aren't doing them or making time for them. It leaves a hole in our life..often filled by unhealthy, downer stuff. We aren't powerless; we are empowered to identify those needs and wants and joys, and make them happen. Overcoming depression takes feeling I'm behind the steering wheel of my life. Often, we just need a start, a push, a move in a good direction, and get the ball rolling – the depression fades, or becomes far easier to handle.
