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.

There are multiple reasons why an individual might experience such a state as depression. Often I have found that it is typically being overwhelmed by lifes challenges and uncertainties which then leads to apathy. Other times it is a event like the loss of of job, a loved one, marital difficulties or even just a biological issues. The first goal, then in therapy, is to assess the underlying cause. Once this is accomplished, it is then possible to look for solutions that are tailored to the individual's specific needs so that time is not wasted in pursuing goals.

Depression can be overwhelming, and it can usually be improved and/or healed by using a combination of treatments. I will listen to your story until you feel really heard and understood. Then we may look at specific actions you may take to decrease symptoms. We may use Internal Family Systems Therapy (IFS) to help you listen to the part of you that holds the depressed feeling. It is amazing that the depression can lift by using the IFS approach to caring for yourself.
