Does this sound like you? Feeling sad; loss of interest in activities you normally enjoy; difficulty concentrating or making decisions; changes in sleep and appetite. These are all symptoms of depression. Sometimes depression is brought on by an event; other times it seemingly pops out of no where. Let me partner with you to give you hope and get you back on track. We will work together to explore your automatic thoughts, that is the thoughts that pop into your head to explain how the world works. Just know that even though you think something, it is not necessarily true. We see the world through our own unique filter which is formed through our experiences. Let's figure this out together.

Depression can hit everyone and look different in anyone. There are many ways to deal with depression and it is highly based upon the person who suffers. Real Talk therapy aims to target why and how the client is suffering, and address it with client identified activities that bring back smiles. Identification and then slow revival of positive feelings and thoughts, with consistent support and positive reinforcement is a cornerstone of Real Talk Therapy.

Depression manifests itself in many ways some times in great sadness, others in anger and sometimes even in anxiety and panic. In working with clients in their depression we most often begin with identification of the depression, clarifying what is depression and what is anxiety, learning how their depression is connected to other thoughts and feelings. We work together utilizing Gestalt therapy, DBT (dialectical behavior therapy) and CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy) in creating a better understanding of triggers, warning signs and coping skills in very tangible ways.

Bad days come and go but they do not necessarily have to stay. When medication does not seem to be enough talking to someone can help. I have worked with many individuals that have struggle with depression and though the course of therapy have described a sensation of "fog" lifting. Depression has many origins, such as early childhood attachment or recent losses. It has been my experience that the most efficient way to come out of depression is to explore and understand one's symptoms.

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.

Depression can rob you of joy and the ability to see a positive future for yourself. Therapy can be a powerful tool to help you learn to understand your depression and build a life worth living. When working with depressed clients, I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), which is one of the best therapies available for combatting depression. Using CBT, we will look at how your thoughts and reactions may be contributing to your depression and then find ways to challenge those thoughts and learn to live in a way that moves your life in a positive direction.

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 be chemical or situational or both. Either way, it can feel debilitating and hopeless. I have dealt with this disorder throughout my life and I know what it's like. There is successful treatment available. For situational depression, brought on by betrayal or something else, there is often a solution you just can't see through the darkness. I can help you find hope and healing.

Licensed Psychologist

Katy Psychological Services has doctoral level psychologists that use cognitive behavioral therapy to help clients to learn to identify common negative thinking errors that often fuel depressive thoughts. Once a client can recognize these patterns, he/she learns to challenge these thoughts and counter them with looking at many different ways to view a situation in a proactive and realistic way. Cognitive behavior therapy is more than just "thinking positive". It's a systematic approach that takes practice, but it can be effective if you can match a good therapist "coach" to guide you through how to change the negative down spiral thoughts.

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.
