All of our 8 licensed counselors approach depression from a holistic viewpoint--meaning we will look at you physically, emotionally and spiritually. We believe that treating depression holistically is the most comprehensive way to ease this issue. We are trauma-informed as well and this will be assessed as unresolved underlying trauma can exacerbate depressive symptoms. We believe in a compassionate and supportive relationship with our clients and offer encouragement, hope and objectives to resolve the pain and frustration of depression.

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.

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.

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.
