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 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.

Depression is a feeling that can feel incredibly heavy to hold. Sometimes we experience challenging life events that leave us feeling much sadness, grief, inner pain and lack of joy, which interfere with our daily functioning. That is called depression. With Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (challenging unhelpful thoughts) and psychodynamic modalities, I can help you work through that sadness, heaviness and pain, so that you may begin the journey of healing work. This is the first step towards holding the sadness, addressing yourself in a safe space so we can slowly help you process and shift to start feeling lighter and start seeing the sunshine and tasting the small joys in everyday life.

My approach emphasizes teaching people to challenge negative thoughts and maladaptive thinking. It enables clients to recognize distorted thoughts that promote negative perspectives which contribute to symptoms of depression. By learning how to accentuate strengths and utilizing one's own unique skills, clients struggling with depression learn how to achieve a more positive outlook on life.

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.

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.

If you have a pulse and a heart, you have been sad. Using the science of happiness rather than standard interventions for depression we focus on increasing positive emotion, engagement, and meaning rather than directly targeting depressive symptoms. In using these interventions with clients I have noted the effects of these interventions in a variety of settings. In informal and clinical settings these interventions have commonly been reported to me and referred to as “life-changing.”

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.

Depression can range from sad to debilitating. It can come as a reaction to a trauma or painful event or creep up on you from a buildup of years of unhappiness. When given attention, depression can help you learn about what may be missing in your life, what you want to achieve, pain that needs healing, or how to become more empowered. Depression can be used for strength and positive. Experience how!

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.
