Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

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.

Depression is a peculiar experience. While some people experience it as a sudden and unmistakable thing, more often it creeps in gradually, sucking the joy out of life. It damages our ability to maintain perspective, which is one reason it sometimes seems so overwhelming that it is hard to imagine life without it. Therapy can help identify the sources of depression and empower you to move beyond patterns that keep you stuck and unhappy. My clients often want to change their lives and rid themselves of depression without the use of antidepressant medication, something I support when possible if they are willing to commit to other ways of caring for themselves.

Depression is serious and often goes untreated in children and teens because the signs can look different than those we associate with adult depression. Symptoms might be overlooked or minimized as part of growing up or something that will pass with time. Up to 15% of children and adolescents have symptoms of depression at any given time. Depression has a negative impact on a child’s development, school performance, and relationships. Untreated, it can lead to unhealthy and dysfunctional patterns of coping such as withdrawal, isolation, bullying, delinquency, drug use, promiscuity, self-injury, or self-destruction. The good news is that DEPRESSION IS TREATABLE! Child/teen Therapy is effective....

I believe it is important to look at a person's depression through the lens of family history and present life difficulties. Cognitive Behavior therapy has proven to be as effective as medication in many cases. Unresolved trauma can also be a contributing factor as well. I believe in looking at the full picture when trying it help a client. The anxiety that accompanies depression also should be addressed.

Depression My approach to depression is multifaceted. We will utilize conventional talk therapy to help you to gain insight along with Cognitive Therapy to help you to look at your belief system about yourself and the world and to write new scripts for yourself. We will also look at historical, nutritional and environmental factors that may be contributing to your depression. I have found that for many people, addressing nutrition alone can be as powerful if not more powerful that the use of medication. Research over the last several decades has consistently found that, in the long run, psychotherapy is more effective than medication. My goal is to help to teach you skills and a lifest

Did you know that the number of people who suffer with depression is similar to the number of people who suffer from seasonal allergies? I bet that is a surprise to you, since we don't hear people talking about depression like they talk about their allergies. People who suffer with depression are not only dealing with the depression but they are often doing it alone. Let us walk with you in this process so that you are not alone. We use a variety of techniques and when necessary, work collaboratively with psychiatrists to proscribe medication. Depression can feel like a heavy blanket - of crying, sadness, lack of motivation, apathy. Let us help you throw off the blanket and start thriving!

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.

In the past, most families have had the stability of living in one place with resources such as grandparents and lifelong friends. Now, we move, change jobs, and may have blended or single parent families. Our resources may no longer be there for us. Life's challenges can make us feel powerless, frustrated, depressed and isolated. A safe, comfortable place to talk and journey together will ultimately lead to a more fulfilling and happier life.

Depression Therapist

Sheri Hardin, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Within Driving Distance of Atlanta, GA

When we are depressed, we usually feel stuck, helpless, and hopeless. My approach is to help you realize or remember that you have options, and to help you determine what those options are. When we can see our options, we feel better because we feel more in charge of our lives. When we remember our power, we do not need to feel depressed any longer.
