You don't have to live under the shadow of depression. Maybe you feel unmotivated, fatigued, disinterested, sad, or numb but it can change. Depression is more than a problem with the way you feel emotionally because it negatively impacts your relationships, productivity, attention, memory, and physical health. To treat depression I do talk therapy to give people the knowledge and skills to reduce their depressive symptoms but I also help them restore their connection to others and renew their hope and respect for themselves.

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.

The difference between sadness and depression is vast. Sadness fades over time and when a situation gets better then the persons mood improves. Sadness also generally has a situational cause. The same cannot be said of depression. It is relentless and persistent and does not go away just because situations around you get better. It feels like a dark cloud following you around on what would be a sunny day to anyone else. I have worked with hundreds of individuals or the past 10 years of inpatient work to help them understand and work toward better management of their depression.

Everyone experiences sadness at some point in their lives, particularly after a loss. And many of us also have had the thought at sometime or another, "I wish I could just go to bed and not wake up." But what sets apart clinical depression from severe sadness is how long the sadness has been occurring, how intense it feels, and how much in interferes in the daily activities of life. It has been fulfilling for me to assist in moving clients from the depths of despair to regaining the ability to feel like themselves again.

When you've suffered a setback, a personal struggle or a loss, the sad feelings you have are probably not clinical depression. But, if your sad feelings have lasted more than a few days; if you're not eating or sleeping well, if life feels like more than you can handle, then you might be experiencing clinical depression. Depression can become a serious life issue, and it is also treatable. Through therapy, you will learn new ways to think and behave to alleviate depression. You will also learn how to form relationships with healthy people who can lift you up rather than hold you down. If medication seems necessary, a doctor referral can be made.

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 is an insidious mental illness that affects all areas of a person's functioning. However, this disease does not have to continue unchecked. There are effective counseling treatments which are very effective, especially when paired with depression medication. I utilize a protocol developed by Dr. Stephen Ilardi of the University of Kansas known as the Theraputic Lifestyle Change or TLC for short. This methodology addresses six key areas to improve mood and outlook for the depressed client. If you are living with depression, there is hope. You can minimize depression symptoms and live life more fully.

Is something getting you down? Is life not going as planned? Life throws us curves sometimes and we may feel stuck due to behaviors, influences, and circumstances. I enjoy counseling individuals who are struggling with a variety of circumstances. I use an eclectic approach to counseling. This means that I am trained in numerous therapeutic approaches. In a counseling session we will explore emotional and cognitive barriers, past and present relationships, and collaboratively devise therapy goals. I would like to help assist you in a safe and therapeutic environment to provide some tools, support, or coping and problem solving skills in a nonjudgmental and caring environment.
