Depression can be as crippling as it is painful. Friends and family who have not been through it offer well-meaning and overly simplistic advice that often adds to the exhaustion you already feel. Our team of therapists can help you find your footing, learn to breathe again, and develop strategies to manage the depression and the other obligations and relationships in your life, without overlooking the deep wounds that often underlie depression.

Clients who report with depression share feelings of hopelessness and despair, and it can be a struggle to cope with the routine demands of daily life. I work with clients to help them find meaning and purpose in life, while changing the negative self-talk that typically keeps them from developing a sense of positivity. I encourage exercise, mindfulness and some type of spirituality to foster the change that can bring freedom to the depressed person.

Depression comes in many forms. Clients who have organically driven forms should see their doctor regarding the latest/newer approaches to pharmacotherapy. Other forms of depression can stem from relationship troubles and in particular marital problems. Relationship counseling and learning new ways of thinking, feeling, and behaving regarding marital conflict and intimacy deficits are a proven, effective way to overcome these types of depression. Many of my clients have learned to combine their existing pharmacotherapies with marital counseling--which is a particularly effective and empirically proven combination.

It's more than a "phase" or "the blues" when sadness and emptiness are ruining your life and dividing you from the people you love. There are different kinds of depression, but the common theme in all of them is self-punishing thoughts. Although many of your perceptions of how things are might be on-target, Melanie helps clients acknowledge other possibilities and craft helpful self-talk and solutions that are right for you.

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.

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.
