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 are all sorts of "depressions" from biologically, inherited endogenous ones to ones created by real life experiences. Depression relates to loss. Anxiety relates to "fear of loss," When these feeling co-exist it is the greatest sense of misery and agitated anguish. I often focus on "depression" which comes as a result of living a life that is not "one's own" choice, but was designed to comply with and accomodate to the agenda of someone else: often a parent or a spouse. This happens a lot with gifted children who spontaneously flourish in areas coveted by their parents but that have no relation to their true selves and ambitions.

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 can be isolating and, most often, results in a sense of helplessness--as if you are in a hole and unable to dig or climb yourself out. I provide a sense of emotional safety and security where one can begin to explore the origins of their depression and how to overcome those overwhelming feelings. Through talk therapy, and various methods such as cognitive behavior and acceptance, one can reduce their alienation and begin to acquire a sense of hope. Learning coping strategies and self-empowerment also achieves a sense of ability with regard to being in the present and moving toward the future.

As a therapist it is necessary to meet a client where they are at in sessions. Negative thinking and self talk is at the core of all depression. In sessions individuals learn to restructure their thought processes and behaviors so they look upon their future with hope. Through cognitive restructuring and implementing tools that are taught in sessions individuals are able to work through their issues and concerns in a safe and nurturing counseling environment.

I am committed to helping you fully express yourself and to helping you find a way out of depression. I tend to be more interactive than many counselors and strive to be clear and direct, down-to-earth and practical. I use a number of techniques, selecting from each as it seems appropriate. However, I have found that techniques are not as important as the working alliance that the counselor and the client build together. I strive to create a private, non-judgmental environment that feels like a natural, normal conversation, but turns out to be like no other conversation you've ever had.
