My approach to depression is both practical and in-depth. I will help you with ways to conquer and deal with depression while also accessing the origins of depression which includes patterns that developed early in life. There are a host of strategies that help in accessing and processing emotion that are vital to the management of depressive feelings.

Have you been experiencing persistent feelings of sadness or discontent? Perhaps you’ve been feeling hopeless, lethargic, achy, anxious or angry? Has your low emotional state been impacting your concentration, motivation, eating or sleeping habits? These are all signs of a depressed mood, which affects about 22% of all Canadians at any given time. Did you know that depression is one of the most common reasons people seek counselling? I use a number of evidence-based therapeutic approaches in my work with clients who are experiencing depressive symptoms, including cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), solutions-focused brief therapy (SFBT), and mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT).

Depression can be debilitating on one's day-to-day life. In my practice, I offer a safe place to help you recognize the features and patterns of your depression with the use of Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT) techniques to help you regain control of your life. In particular, CBT is among the most researched and proven treatments for mild to moderate depression. I strive to incorporate cognitive behavioural focused intervention into individually tailored treatment. My gentle integrative approach can help uncover your strength and the positive aspect that may have been absent.

Registered Clinical Psychologist

206-27 Carleton Street, Toronto, Ontario

Clients who suffer from depression can be required to consider medication in addition to psychotherapy as the best means of managing the condition. I advise that clients be assessed by a psychiatrist if the depressive condition has been persistent over time and with a significant history of recurrence. Psychotherapy though is the important work to uncover an individual’s approach to living their life and understanding alternatives to those views.

Depression responds amazingly well to Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, according to all the studies. In fact CBT is THE most researched therapy, with a very high success rate... around 95%. If you would prefer not to take anti-depressants, CBT can work quite well to manage or eliminate your depression. If you are already on anti-depressants, CBT can still work to help you feel better. In addition, EFT is a powerful tool for the release of emotions in the moment. It works instantaneously to make you feel better. Together these are powerful tools to help you feel as happy as possible.

Depression can drain us of energy and prevent us from enjoying even the simple pleasures of life. Beilieving that change is possible is often very challenging for someone suffering from depression. The goal of counselling is to work with someone who can walk with you through the changes that may result in different internal experiences. It can also help in minimizing any "unnecessary" negative thoughts or cognitions that actually contribute to low mood, loss of energy and hope.

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

Tressa Porter, M.A.

Registered Psychotherapist and Consultant

Depression often comes as a result of not feeling entitled to claim our life and set boundaries to create safety in our life. Instead of feelings like we can grow and become more of who we are, we get caught in the reverse, where we feel more and more that we should shrink and lose our aliveness. I will work with you in a process of recognizing your feelings and getting them to work for you rather than against you. Depression is about dis-empowerment, but we become empowered when we can make sense of our inner world and use our feelings to strengthen ourselves and make the changes we need to make in our life. No need to go it alone, let me guide you through this challenging terrain!

When depression sets in, it can feel all-consuming and overwhelming. Will it ever go away? Will I ever again have a good night's rest? Why don't I feel better when I spend time with friends? Will I ever get my zest for life/appetite/motivation back? I provide a safe space in which you can talk through your feelings. Together we can work towards an understanding of the root causes of your depression, and explore ways in which you can more effectively cope in difficult times. Understanding why we feel depressed and talking about our experience of depression, in the context of a caring and empathic relationship, can be an important and significant step on the road to recovery.

Registered Psychotherapist

A depressed mood state may have many contributing factors. I work with my clients to address the negative thoughts, feelings and assumptions that may be causing them distress. If depression is situational, we work together to create an action plan for addressing the presenting problems and/or developing effective coping strategies. I draw on techniques from CBT and narrative therapy to try and shift my clients' core beliefs, assumptions and automatic thoughts.
