Treating depression as a symptom provides the opportunity to examine, locate and treat the actual causes of the depression. I provide causal-based depression treatment and support care. Depression can be treated and the symptoms of depression can be alleviated with proper treatment. Depression is responsive to multiple forms of therapy and after identifying the cause of depression, targeted treatment can be applied to alleviate symptoms and restore emotional well-being.

I help people struggling with depression by helping them to explore the history/causes of their depression, normalize and validate their emotions, create solutions to real life problems when applicable, and to create and grow hope & optimism. When depression appears to be the result of a biological problem like thyroid issues or chemical imbalances I help clients to find doctors who can evaluate them and then work with them on issues related to their depression. Medication tends to help with the symptoms of depression but doesn't do much to address the underlying thoughts, feelings, and history that have caused or contributed to the depression.

There are many causes for depression and many forms of depression, from reactive depressions to deep internal depressions. Sudden depressions as well as long lasting depressions are not to be ignored. They are serious emotional responses which can benefit extensively from appropriate counseling and therapeutic interventions. Having a caring and listening ear to talk to during a time of depressive despair can be extremely healing. It is often stated that a healthy listening relationship can heal beyond measure. There are depressions which will benefit from medical interventions along with talking interventions. In general, cared for depressions will greatly improve and most will pass.

I assist clients with exploring how much their depression is based on unfulfilled desires or wishes, and how much it is based in a history of feeling neglected, unseen, unloved, etc. I use various techniques and processes, such as CBT therapy, hypnotherapy, EMDR, Byron Katie, and other techniques to help my clients release themselves from the grip of the depression as they are more able to access their wise, loving inner selves.

We all go through ups and downs in our moods. Sadness is a normal reaction to life's struggles, setbacks, and disappointments. Many people use the word "Depression" to explain these kind of feelings, but depression is much more than just sadness. Whatever the symptoms, depression is different from nornal sadness in that it engulfs your day-to-day life, interfering with your ability to work, study, eat, sleep, and have fun. Getting the support you need plays a big role in lifting the fog of depression and keeping in away. On your own, it can be difficult to maintain perspective and sustain the effort required to beat depression. Please contact me for help and support.

Depression is more than having the blues. When you have depression, you may feel like getting up in the morning, brushing your teeth, or getting dressed all feel like too much. Sometimes life even feels so hard that killing yourself seems like a reasonable solution. Though medication may help, it is often not the whole story. Depression often masks other emotions that have been buried, sometimes from childhood, sometimes because a person was taught that only "positive" emotions were acceptable. Learn to uncover what is causing your depression and regain your aliveness so that you can once again, or perhaps for the first time, feel that you are living a full and productive life.

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.

Some established theories about what causes depression include “Anger turned inward”, “early Object Loss”, and “the inability to Grieve”. It think it is no coincidence that Depression and Anger are two of the stages of Grief which Kubler-Ross identified as a normal aspects of resolving significant loss. Normal Grief and Bereavement can become complicated by any kind of overwhelming or traumatic experience. I find that Somatic approaches such as Sensorimotor Psychotherpy are ideal for working with Depression, as it reconnects us with the deeper natural healing resources available to us when we pay attention to the wisdom of the body as it communicates on multiple levels.

Depression can be an incredibly painful experience for some, resulting in lots of tears and overwhelming sadness and hopelessness. For others, depression can leave you feeling numb and apathetic about just about anything in life. Whatever your experience, it helps to know you don't have to go through depression alone. Therapy can provide a safe place for you to express and explore these feelings. We'll talk about possible triggers and coping skills. And, we'll begin exploring underlying factors that may be creating or contributing to this painful experience for you, which can help you implement the changes you want in your life.

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.
