Edith's approach to depression counseling is to 1) recognize, accept, and cope with feelings of depression, 2) help the client alleviate depressive symptoms and return to previous level of effective functioning, develop healthy thinking patterns and beliefs about self and others, and 3) develop healthy interpersonal relationships that lead to the alleviation and help prevent the relapse of depression.

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.

We occasionally feel sad, but these feelings are usually fleeting and pass within a few days. When a person has a depressive disorder it interferes with daily life, normal functioning, and causes emotional pain for the person and their loved ones. Depression is a common illness that can be serious, but most get better with treatment. Symptoms can include: persistent sad, anxious feelings, hopelessness, worthlessness, loss of interests, isolation, poor concentration, too much/ not enough sleep, appetite changes or thoughts of suicide. I work with clients using cognitive behavioral / strength based therapy to help you challenge negative self talk, build on your strengths and focus on solutions

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.

I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) when working with clients dealing with depression. My goal is to help clients learn to recognize patterns of thought creating the depressed moods and replacing them with healthier ways of thinking. Together we change negative, unhealthy thinking with healthier coping skills to combat negative dysfunctional thinking.

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.

We offer trational talk therapies, including cognitive-behavioral and spiritual direction, as well as Quantitative Electroencephalogram (qEEG) guided Neurofeedback therapy (brainwave biofeedback). Treatment begins with a comprehensive assessment of functioning - physically, emotionally, cognitively, relationally, and spiritually. If indicated, we will perform a qEEG brainmap to inform our treatment recommendations. We commonly work with the client's psychiatrist to ensure continuity of treatment.

Feel terrible? No energy? Lying in bed all day long, with no motivation, no desire to do anything at all? Trying to think of a reason to go on? I understand how horrible and debilitating long-term depression is. Medication can help, but a combination of medication and face-to-face counseling can be the best route toward having a life again. If you can work up the energy to get to my office, we can talk about what you can do to start feeling better, a little at a time.
