I provide clients with a safe place to explore the root causes of their depression. Within the therapeutic relationship, we will also examine how the individual's thoughts, actions and feelings are connected to and feeding into their depression. We will work on breaking these negative cycles and start positive more adaptive ways of thinking, and acting to improve their mood.

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.

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 is a big umbrella word today to describe a large tree of disorders that fall under the general rubric of a low mood. For some people depression is something that follows them around and never disappears completely. For others depression is accompanied by the change in weather and is particularly disabling in the winter months when there is less sun. Working in talk therapy together with a psychiatric consultation and possible medication is the gold standard to treat depression. I work together with psychiatrists when needed to alleviate my patients depression and allow for the talk therapy to be more effective.

Often depression is held in place by thoughts and beliefs that suck the hope out of one's life. Therapy is effective in finding the source of the problem and providing tools for intercepting and changing the problematic thought patterns. Medication may or may not be needed to get the process started. When one gains the ability to envision a rewarding life, it often ends the cycle of depression.

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 anger turned inward or against yourself. As anger builds within, an individual has three choices: To channel the anger energy assertively by expressing the feelings attached to the situations causing one to feel depressed; to express the anger through outbursts that can be very destructive to the self and others; to internalize the anger and become more depressed and less functional with time. My job is to enable you to learn how to identify and express feelings that are causing you to feel depressed. The next step is to change behaviors associated with your feelings freeing you from depressive thoughts and feelings.

In sessions, we will explore the ways in which your symptoms are affected by your relationships, including family and friends. You are given the opportunity to focus on the meaningful relationships in your life and how they may be contributing to your symptoms of depression. As these relationships are developed or improved, inter-personal connection is strengthened. This sense of support or emotional connection proves critical in alleviating depression. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is used to target negative thoughts, emotions, and actions that contribute to your depression. You will learn modulated, positive, and effective emotional responses to whatever life brings your way.

Some of the therapies we can provide include cognitive behavioral therapy, interpersonal therapy, and psychodynamic therapy. These techniques help clients to reframe negative thinking and employ behavioral skills to fight the depression.
