Elizabeth Wurzel, the wrote of depression, "a human being can survive almost anything, as long as she sees the end in sight. But depression is so insidious and it compounds daily, that it's impossible to ever see the end. The fog is like a cage without a key." My goal in treating depression is to help my clients find that key out of the cage she so aptly describes, using cognitive-behavioral and psychotherapy approaches. By understanding the impact life experience and genetics plays in its developing, and examining unhealthy core beliefs and replacing them with more accurate evaluations and healthy self-regard, people can feel the fog of depression lift.

I believe that depression is best treated with a combination of CBT, exercise, talk therapy, and, sometimes, medication. Resolving issues underlying the depression is as important as implementing effective coping strategies. A strong therapeutic relationship and strong support system are particularly helpful when addressing issues related to depression.

People who experience depression often minimize the pain they are going through, and even try to “deal with it” on their own. No one should settle with depression as something they will just have to live with. Counseling can be very beneficial in the treatment of depression. I’ve helped people with depression caused by a variety of factors. Together we will explore your present situation, and work towards identifying the source of your depression. We can then explore ways to help you heal, and better cope with negative emotions in the future. Your current state is not your final destination. It will take some work, but I’m dedicated to helping you find the missing pieces in your life.

Depression hits all of us at some level at some time in our lives. At a low level, we may feel blah, or describe it as the blues. At a more extreme level, depression can be downright debilitating, causing us to lose our appetites or overeat, to gain weight or lose weight. If depression has taken a hold of you to the extent that you are sleeping all the time or conversely, losing sleep, you will want to see your physician and find out if anti-depressants are in order for you. Even if your depression is not to the point of your being unable to get out of bed in the morning, don't delay in getting help. Call me at 425 652-1413 for an appointment.

Depression is a kind of spiritual-emotional paralysis that holds us in one place for too long, that puts blinders on us so it gets harder and harder to remember what’s beyond the narrow space we find ourselves in. We’ll go slow at first to establish safety and trust. Then gently, gradually, we’ll approach the places where you feel stuck or wounded and work on healing those parts. As we do, we’ll begin to discover a vibrancy and buoyancy you might have thought you’d lost forever – and we’ll work together to help you live more from that place than from the shadowy places where you’ve been stuck for so long.

The treatment of depression begins initially with the addressing the depression symptoms that are disrupting your life. Without attention to these symptoms first, it is difficult for individuals to begin to examine the reasons behind the depression without provoking more of it. Once these symptoms are looked into, we will start to examine the life situations you are in and the relationships, stories, family roles, events and unprocessed emotion that may be the root of the depression. With some time, consistency, openness and commitment to the process, individuals will find their symptoms eased and the enjoyment of every day returned.

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.
