Depression causes a feeling of sadness and loss of interest. It affects how you feel, think and behave and can lead to a variety of emotional and physical problems. Together we can identify the roots and stems of what causes these moods. It can be seasonal, long term or short term. There are many tools and assessments that can help you figure out if this is a mood disorder for you.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

Depression is anger turned inward or against yourself. As anger builds within, an individual has three choices: To channel the anger energy assertively by expressing the feelings attached to the situations causing one to feel depressed; to express the anger through outbursts that can be very destructive to the self and others; to internalize the anger and become more depressed and less functional with time. My job is to enable you to learn how to identify and express feelings that are causing you to feel depressed. The next step is to change behaviors associated with your feelings freeing you from depressive thoughts and feelings.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

It is not an easy task to manage our lives successfully but staying stuck will only bring more regret.

I work with a depressed nervous system by working with the body. Often we struggle to sleep, eat, or accomplish relatively simple tasks. Our bodies are stuck with the brake on. When our body thinks it is futile, out mind follows quickly thereafter and we begin to tell ourselves how pointless things are and how worthless we are. I work with the whole body to re-regulate the body to enable you to get back to a whole integrated self.
