Licensed Professional Counselor & Board Certified Coach

New Canaan, Connecticut 06840

I have great respect for people who are struggling in their life with an overall lack of satisfaction and motivation. I will help you identify those “triggers” that cause your low mood, and to develop coping skills to help you feel better. My clients report that they are able to sense and identify mood fluctuations as a result of our therapy sessions. Clients that are on medication can expect a team approach to their wellness, as I consult with physicians. If you are reading this right now, you or someone you care about is struggling with the ability to sustain important relationships. If you are currently feeling suicidal, please call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room.

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.

Psychotherapy -- or "talk therapy" -- is an effective treatment for depression. Everyone experiences sadness from time to time. But depression lasts longer, interferes with daily life and can cause physical pain. Fortunately, depression is highly treatable, and getting effective treatment is crucial. Together we will work on helping you develop good coping strategies for dealing with everyday stressors. I can help with identifying negative or distorted thought patterns that contribute to feelings of hopelessness and helplessness that accompany depression. We can pinpoint the life problems that contribute to your depression, and help you understand which aspects of those problems you may be able ....

My approach to depression therapy begins with helping clients understand it is a treatable illness. I assess their symptoms (sleep, eating problems, lack of focus, irritability, anxiety, sadness) to determine their condition (major depression, situational depression, dysphoria). I also determine whether medication (administered under the supervision of a medical professional) may be necessary in addition to talk therapy. I employ compassionate listening to understand each client's issues and the root causes of their condition and develop a tailored treatment plan.

When someone is living with depression it can feel like carrying a heavy weight or living under a dark cloud of isolation. It's often the case that an individual is unaware they are actually depressed. If you're uncertain of the signs and symptoms see this link: http://www.mentalhealthamerica.net/mental-health-screen/patient-health Treatment for depression can include a variety of methods. In my practice, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Emotion Focused Therapy and Mindfulness treatment models are most effective. These therapeutic strategies can be very powerful - not only in treating the symptoms of depression but they also enhance a greater sense of worth and well-being.

Depression is generally considered a reaction to physical or psychological stress, and any number of stressors can lead to depressive symptoms. These can include personality, environmental, or biomedical factors, i.e. chemical imbalances in the brain, trauma, and/or situational factors. Sometimes illness or certain drugs (including alcohol, prescribed medications, etc.) as well as improper diet and nutrition contribute to depression. Treatment includes identifying and understanding the underpinnings and circumstances of your depression (insight), learning helpful coping skills, and getting extra support so you can feel better and recover.

223 Katonah Avenue, Katonah, New York 10536

If you’re struggling with depression, you may feel overwhelmingly sad, lacking the energy to do the simplest things, and disconnected from others. But you don’t have to face depression alone. The process of therapy can provide the support and guidance you need to begin to heal. I help my clients access their innate strengths and learn to trust the wisdom of their emotions. As you develop coping strategies to navigate painful feelings, you will gain a new sense of your power and competency. Therapy provides the opportunity to learn to connect with those you love in healthier ways, to discover an enhanced sense of well-being, and to live more fully in the present moment.

Depression is often a product of frustration and anger becoming jammed up within the self; as it continues, feelings of hopeless and helplessness can be generated and turn into a story that we can create when we're depressed in which we see ourselves as victims and without power. Depression may also reflect life style issues, notably sleep deprivation and lack of exercise. Medical issues also need to be evaluated with regard to their influence on mood. Depression can be usefully seen in behavioral terms as a "call for action." I will compassionately hold your depressed feelings with you, and explore behaviors to alleviate your frustration, particularly specific to effective self-expression.

Understanding depression as anger at past events can help clients to understand and gain incite as to why they no longer care about life in the present moment. Often anxiety accompanies depression as worry about the future makes thoughts overactive. By using acceptance and commitment along with day to day wellness methods, we can work together to transition you back into looking forward to living your life in the moment as best as we all can. It is not an easy task to manage our lives successfully but staying stuck will only bring more regret.
