The normal ups and downs of life mean that everyone feels sad or has "the blues" from time to time. Depression is different from normal sadness in that it engulfs your day-to-day life, interfering with your ability to work, study, eat, sleep, and have fun. The feelings of helplessness, hopelessness, and worthlessness are intense and unrelenting, with little, if any, relief. I have found in treating clients with depression that a multi-pronged approach is most effective and includes a combination of social support, lifestyle changes and emotional skills building learned within the therapeutic relationship.

Depression is often a "check engine" light that there are things we love and enjoy doing, are good at, our passions and interests – but we aren't doing them or making time for them. It leaves a hole in our life..often filled by unhealthy, downer stuff. We aren't powerless; we are empowered to identify those needs and wants and joys, and make them happen. Overcoming depression takes feeling I'm behind the steering wheel of my life. Often, we just need a start, a push, a move in a good direction, and get the ball rolling – the depression fades, or becomes far easier to handle.

Depression is painful, it can disrupt many areas of your life-- from personal relationships, work, organization and cleanliness, your sleep, appetite, and sex life. It can even make someone not want to go on. It is one of the most common problems I treat. Despite how common and painful it can be, there is good news. There are a number of highly effective treatments for depression supported by science. I utilize Cognitive Therapy, Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT), Behavioral Activation, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and when appropriate some skills from Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). I also incorporate physical exercise and meditation when appropriate.

Depression is a life challenge that is shared by many of us and treated in a variety of ways. Letting go of self blame and regret may be your need. Examining past history and increasing or altering perspective about how this affects your self worth may bring relief. Addressing present thought patterns and how they relate to mood and behavior is practical and beneficial. But, receiving consistent support by a trained, compassionate and dedicated professional who will remain by your side through attempts to change may be the most important and positive step toward relieving depression and that is what I bring to our sessions.

Each individual experiences sadness, depression in a unique way. To that end, I have lived and worked in the USA, Europe and Mexico and have treated a wide variety of culturally, ethnically, racially, religiously and linguistically diverse populations, as well as in age and symptom particularities. I implement any one of a number of psychotherapeutic approaches to free an individual from negative thoughts and feelings allowing for symptom remission and restoration of full function, to sustain those gains and prevent any new episode. I utilize elements of Interpersonal Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Supportive Therapy or other to achieve symptom remission, psychosocial restoration

There is hope if you are unable to enjoy the things that used to give you pleasure or if you have a sense of sadnesss or hopelessness that just won't go away. We all feel sad from time to time, but depression is when this goes on over time and can affect all areas of your life and even lead to you feeling like giving up on life. Together, we can look at what is going on and explore ways (through discussion, actions and possibly involving a physician) to help you back to where you would want to be - where you can experience a sense of wholeness and peace. Christopher can help you on that journey.

Depression and anxiety are the two most diagnosed psychological conditions in our Western world. The depressed clients who I have successfully treated came to me with a deep frustration in their souls.My approach is a multi-pronged approach. I work holistically to bring awareness to physical, biological and nutritional issues that might be contributing to the problem. Concurrently, In our psychotherapeutic work we develop tools to explore and express the unique and authentic life that each client so richly deserves. The soul's wishes can be expressed when self-limiting patterns are released and a more joyful life follows.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org.

This is a broad broad category. There are as many things that people call depression, and as many kinds of depressed people, as there are shades of color. The first step is to rule out physical problems – there are several that masquerade as depression – and then to rule out the simple solutions. Any good self-help book or website can give you advice on coping with the inertia that is so problematic in depression. If those are not helping enough, it is time for a careful assessment of your particular brand of what you might be calling depression. It can involve any mixture of anger, resentment, internal pressure, fear, and more. How we handle all that depends on what we find

Chronic depression can leave one feeling completely hopeless about life. It also depletes the little bit of energy you have, making getting out of bed in the morning a chore. You might find yourself sleeping too much, yet feeling exhausted all the time. When I work with people who exhibit these symptoms, the initial psychotherapy steps include helping the person set goals and begin working toward them while the therapy unfolds and sources of the depression get examined in new ways.
