Dealing with pain in life is one of the most challenging things we do. As a therapist, my job is to sit with you in your suffering and help give you tools to overcome the sources of pain in your life. Whether you have contemplated suicide, struggled fruitlessly to overcome your challenges, or are the family member of someone going through depression, I can help you find the hope that will help you hang on until the pain gets better.

When one person in a relationship is depressed, its quite possible the other will experience some negative feelings as well. By helping both find ways to manage emotions, including depression, the individuals in a relationship can feel better and they can do better as a couple. Using cognitive-behavioral therapy as well as emotionally focused couples therapy, people can experience positive results fairly quickly.

When working with clients who are suffering from depression, I like to work on two parallel tracks at once. The first is a practical track designed to help the client start making changes in his/her external life. For example, if someone is socially isolated, I help him/her figure out how he/she can start to be around other people. The second track is an interior track through which we examine the root causes of the depression and begin to heal the inner wounds that have led to the person's suffering in the first place. I find that, through working on both these levels at once, depression is more quickly and effectively shifted.

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 sometimes describes as sadness. While sadness is often a very real part of depression, there is often much more to it than that. Feelings of emptiness inside, hopelessness about the future, feelings of guilt, worries and anxieties about the future, and a feeling of being weighed down by life in a manner that becomes suffocating often accompany depression. It is a very real problem that we are finding has very real negative effects in the lives of individuals, communities, and places of work. Treating depression takes time and commitment, but the truth is there is hope that you will not always have to feel this way.

My approach to treating depression is to first create relational trust with you as a client. Then in the process of our weekly sessions we can interpret various environmental factors that add to your depression. We may also find earlier stories in your life that affect your current moods. Depending on the severity of your depression I may recommend that we coordinate with a naturopath or family doctor to check your thyroid, vitamin D levels and any other possible medical concerns. Depending on those results a nutritionist or psychiatrist may also help stabilize your mood. Once you feel more stable we can then delve into deeper places of your narrative for healing.

Depression. It's one of the most core maladies to all of humanity. Catholic monks used to call it "acedia" or the noon day demon; robbing one's will, the ability to freely engage in life. In the modern day, we have more methods than ever to "escape" the feelings we don't like. Yet depression is one of the ones that stick around. My work focuses on facing depression while not villainizing it. I pay particular attention to both your life story and who you are here and now. Through this we can learn to work with our emotions and find new ways of dealing with the messiness of life.

Take charge of your depression. I can help you learn tools to lessen depression and start feeling better. Our thoughts, our current lifestyle, friends or lack of, all contribute to how we feel. Past failures tend to repeat themselves until they are understood. When getting motivated, completing tasks, or social relationships are a struggle the stress of this can lead to depression. Don't put up with feeling other people have more enjoyment in life than you do. Research is showing us that there are ways we can feel better without using medication.

When depression takes over, saps all color from life, drains passion from relationships and interest in activities, takes you by the throat, squeezing your chest, deadening your limbs, making it difficult to breathe or move, I hear a cry for the authentic being within to be truly seen, heard, loved, and accepted. We work to gently help the true you rise through the layers of pain, layers of expectations and lies, layers of imposed identity, that bury your heart and spirit. We work to release or transform all those layers, creating a foundation for and affirming the worth of your authentic self and rebuilding your sense of purpose.

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.

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.

Do you feel tired? Numb? No motivation or anticipation for what you once enjoyed? Depression can be like a thick, gray blanket pressing you down. You want out from under it, but can't imagine how that might be possible. In fact, just thinking about what could help makes you tired...and more depressed. If this is your experience, it's crucial you bring it to someone who can understand you and your depression. Someone who can slowly, compassionately "take your hand" and find a way through the dismal fog with you. Someone who meets you where you are, yet holds onto the true experience of hope and joy on your behalf, helping you rediscover your life again.

Depression is one of the most common mental health disorders in the United States. If you are experiencing depression, know that you are not alone and that there are effective treatment options available. I work with clients who are experiencing depression and feel hopeless, paralyzed, and powerless. In therapy, I use a combination of techniques to help you not only begin to feel better but to address the underlying factors so that you can begin to resolve the issue at its root. In the throes of depression it can feel like nothing will ever change or get better. But therapy has shown to be an effective treatment for depression, helping clients go on to live healthy, happy lives.
