Repression and suppression=depression. Whether your depression is rooted in recent trauma, or has been a long term challenge, assessing how you feel, determining your triggers, and developing coping strategies with the help of a caring, experienced professional will make the difference in your quality of life. Combining psychotherapy and hypnosis is sometimes the key to changing the way that you look at life. I can help.

While external circumstances and biology definitely can affect our moods, so can our underlying beliefs about ourselves and our relationships. My goal is to teach people how to explore their feelings without being overwhelmed by them. Once we become more connected safely to ourselves, our connection with the external world begins to change too. We may also look at changing diet and exercise, find ways to balance work, play and rest so you can feel replenished and nurture what is meaningful in your life.

Depression is a real medical problem. Research has shown that depression is best treated with a combination of counseling and medical intervention. I will help you with Cognitive Behavior Therapy as well as work closely with your Primary Care Physician or refer you for a medication evaluation if we decide together that this is something that you would benefit from.

A common understanding is that depression is anger turned inward. I help the client understand the sources of their depression, both biological and environmental, and build on their strengths as well as build new sources of identity to cope with the depression. In this process I am helping them create a toolbox to survive difficult emotion and strengthen their core self. This might include mindfulness work, grief work, reframing their personal narratives, coaching around new life habits and activities, learning how to set small goals for themselves, and examining the typical roles they play in their relationships, including the examination of these typical roles for satisfaction.

Do you think you might be depressed? You are not alone. In fact the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) estimates that 15.7 million adults aged 18 or older in the United States. had at least one major depressive episode in the past year. If you think you are depressed, there is something you can do about it. Talking to a therapist can help. I use a treatment called Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) which is proven to reduce symptoms of depression. Contact me today to learn if CBT can help you get start feeling better.

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 email@example.com.

I can help you explore the history of your depression, whether it is situational, short term response to stress, or long term which needs to be evaluated for chemical imbalance factors. Talk therapy has been shown to be effective and long term talk therapy has been identified in a large client study as most effective when clients are asked what helped. I can help you to identify your unique childhood and family history experiences and how to desensitize, reprocess and learn to shift what doesn't work to more effective coping strategies. Homework and journalling are used to track your progress.

Depression can be very frightening and dangerous. It takes many forms and requires sensitive and flexible treatment. I work with people who are depressed to understand the ways in which behaviors that are efforts to find relief can compound their suffering, for example crawling into bed or seeking comfort from substances like food, alcohol, street and prescription drugs. Together we develop resources that are more effective and reliable means of improving their disordered mood both as short and long term solutions. Over time, I work with people to understand their vulnerability to depressive episodes and find strategies to minimize their intensity and recurrence.
