Throughout our life, we all feel our moods ebb and flow. This is part of being human. However, when we feel ourselves dipping below a certain level and staying there for a period of time longer than usual, we may be experiencing a form of depression. Some of the symptoms of depression are sadness, emptiness or unhappiness, irritability or frustration (even over small matters), loss of interest or pleasure, and lack of energy... In therapy, I offer clients mindful ways to cope with depression, so they can find relief and start feeling like themselves again. If depression has been with them a long time, I help them detangle from its power over their identity and sense of self.

Most of us get depressed at times in our lives. Sometimes, we need some guidance to help us through these difficult periods. I believe that the client/therapist relationship is very important in dealing with depression. If you make the decision to seek psychotherapy to help you deal with your depression, I think it is necessary to find a therapist that you can relate to. I work very hard to establish that bond and then explore your history and reasons why the depression exists. Using various techniques, my goal is to help you gain insight into your issues, learn better coping skills and ways of thinking and then help you move forward in your life to attain your goals.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Many clients who come to therapy are suffering from depression at some level. Often, "talk therapy" is sufficient to help them overcome negative thinking and get back on track. Sometimes, the feelings of sadness or hopelessness are the result of a recent (or distant) life event. Other clients report having always experienced life in this way. Depending on the circumstances and the severity of the symptoms, a referral to a physician for a consultation about medication is necessary. Even in those cases, having a trusted, experienced counselor to talk to on a regular basis (in conjunction with the use of medications), can be invaluable.

Depression can be a lonely place. A place where you are surrounded by your darkest and deepest thoughts. A place that feels isolated. A place that prevents you from moving forward, getting out of bed, and having a fulfilling life. Depression can become so powerful that instead of having hope, you can become consumed with feelings of sadness and hopelessness. In therapy, I will make you connect your emotional and physical pain into your depression and teach you self care, though stopping techniques, and relaxation techniques in order to overcome the symptoms. You and I will work together to work through your past traumas you have experienced growing up.

Can’t get out of bed? Unmotivated? No energy? Sleeping too much? Isolating? Depression can be so debilitating! But it doesn’t have to be. You can feel better. You can find healing from depression and live the life that you are meant to live. My approach is one of mindfulness. We will address how mind, body, and emotion are interconnected. You will learn how your reactions to the depressive spiral is what actually caused the damage and how your efforts to get out of depression keep you stuck in the pain you are trying to escape. Do you find that nothing you do seems to help make the depression go away? This is because trying to solve what is “wrong” with you just makes things worse!

People who have depression have problems thinking, acting, behaving, and even getting through the day. Sometimes, depression can feel as though one is living in a black hole, like an ever-present sense of impending doom looming over them.

Many clients enter therapy feeling depressed or overwhelmed. After assessing for safety issues and/or the need for a psychiatric evaluation, I work with cients to understand the stressors or underlying issues (or events in the past) that have produced the depression. I work with the client to challenge their feelings of helplessness and focus on actions and beliefs that promote feelings of strength and hope. I help them redefine themselves as capable and valuable; moving from hopelessness to hopefulness, and finding the internal and external tools and strength to battle depressive, negative views of themselves that may have been burdening and depressing them for many years.

Depression robs us of joy and the ability to thrive in life. When I work with a client suffering from depression, we discover ways to both alleviate the symptoms that make daily life such a struggle and look at the underlying issues that are causing the depression. Gestalt therapy builds our awareness to the beliefs and past experiences that interrupt our ability to get the sense of connection in life needed to not be depressed. My approach helps people have greater awareness of the dynamics within them that lead to their depression so they can get at the underlying issues and truly change their lives.

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.

Many people have felt sad or depressed at times. Our moods go up and down based on our experiences, physical wellbeing, affected by our day to day encounters. Feeling depressed can be a normal reaction to loss, life's labors, or a wounded self-esteem. But when feelings of extreme sadness -- including feeling hopeless, and worthless last for many days and then to weeks and keep you from performing normally, your depression may be something more than sadness. It may very well be clinical depression – which is a treatable medical condition. A sign of depression is either depressed mood or loss of interest in activities you once enjoyed for more than just a few days. In addition, the depressive symptoms need to cause clinically significant distress or...(view profile to read more)

Depression is far more common than has been generally thought. Folks find themselves feeling hopeless, unable to concentrate, lacking initiative, having difficulty making decisions, trouble sleeping etc. Depression involves a slowing down of the entire human organism as well as lowered self-esteem. Often our dreams and images can lead us to discover the deeper meaning of the depression. Therefore sometimes depression can be a pathway to self-discovery.

Depression is a complex condition that involves changes in mood, behavior and thinking. It can effect our most important personal and work related relationships. Physically, it can interrupt our sleep, appetite and energy level. Sometimes, a medical solution is needed and other times a psychological approach is best while other times a combination of both is the optimal treatment. As a psychotherapist with 32 years experience, I have helped many people overcome their depression through proven treatments that change the patterns of thinking, acting, and relating that tend to maintain depressive moods. Psychotherapy can greatly benefit the person seeking relief from this condition.

With sensitive, open communication in sessins, we can find answers to these questions that can curtail habitual depressive thought and feelings. Coping skills can be taught and mastered.

Depression can feel like a lead weight that you carry around with you day in and day out. It can be hard to remember that you ever felt better or to believe that you will ever feel good again. One of the most valuable things that therapy can do for depressed people is to inspire hope, to restore the confidence that one can find or recover a positive outlook on life. We do this by exploring the origins of your depression and putting your current feelings into perspective.

My approach to working with depression utilizes a combination of depth psychotherapy, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), and existential therapy. Depression is the soul speaking of its pain and isolation through the body. My clients benefit immensely from learning to listen to the unconscious through dream analysis and the use of active imagination. CBT provides a tool for clients to identify negative thoughts and replace them with life affirming thoughts. Through existential work my clients learn to take responsibility for and take charge of their depression. For those clients who are taking anti-depressant medication I work closely with their psychiatrists to maximize outcomes.

Depression is very common, and often is a symptom of other problems that are going on. When I work with depression, I assess how long it has been present, what the root causes are if they are known, and what solutions have been attempted so far. Usually I will ask for a thorough evaluation by your doctor, because there are many underlying physical conditions that can cause feelings of depression. This does not mean that you necessarily need an antidepressant medication. Some people find them very helpful, and others don't want to add a medication to their systems. Your preference is important, and we will work with it. Depression sucks the joy out of life, and therapy can help!

Depression is a condition that can be insidious in that the symptoms are frequently physically and emotionally debilitating. Friends and relatives often suggest as a cure to merely "take a walk" or "think positively" in order to combat those symptoms which usually only increase feelings of shame and encourage patients to further isolate. I don't offer such simple suggestions but construct a treatment plan that includes supportive psychotherapy, cognitive behavioral techniques and integrating an evaluation for medication if indicated and desired by the patient.

Board Certified Clinical Psychologist

Depression often results following some type of loss. However, often it is not the loss itself that causes the depression, but the person's assessment and thoughts about the loss that produces feelings of depression. Cognitive therapy, as practiced by Dr. Levine, can help reverse such clinical depression. It is normal to feel sadness following a loss or unexpected negative life event and cognitive therapy is frequently an excellent method for insuring that normal sadness does not morph into clinical depression. If medication might help in addition to therapy, Dr. Levine will help direct you to a competent psychopharmacologist to provide this additional assistance, if you choose.

Depression is a crippling experience that often goes unidentified by ourselves or those in our lives for way too long. It is self-sustaining, as it causes us to withdraw from our lives and from possible support. Mild to moderate depression may be treated with traditional "talk" psychotherapy, although severe depression may require pharmaceutical intervention. I work with you both to make sense of your depression and take steps to challenge it and move through it, into a better quality of life. We will talk. We will work somatically, with your breath and your body, to move stuck emotions and energy and remove the blocks to getting back into your life. Depression IS treatable. Seek out help.

We all feel down sometimes. Real depression is when we can’t get back up. Or it’s when we do so only after great effort, and even then it’s not all the way back. If sadness, hopelessness, and helplessness get in your way, that’s depression. Even mild or periodic depression can interfere in your life. It can also increase conflicts at work and in your relationships. Therapy helps, even without medication. Some people may benefit from medication, but that’s on an individual basis, and research shows that medication works best when it’s combined with therapy. We’ll examine what causes the depression, what you’ve tried, and what else can be done. Depression doesn’t have to stop your living.

Depression can be debilitating and seldom goes away by itself. It is often a result of built-up feelings of hurt and anger that have not been expressed outwardly or have turned toward the self. It is unfortunate that many people go through their lives experiencing depression when something can be done about it. When depressed, because we feel lethargic and lack energy, it is often accompanied by feelings of helplessness and hopelessness - a feeling that one can never escape it. There is hope however, and together we can help get the joy that life has been missing back. Feel free to call my office for a free 15 minute telephone consultation at 800-474-1445.

The benefits of a successful treatment of depression include reductions in the severity and frequency of depressive episodes. The capacity to reframe depression as an experience of growth into wisdom, leads to recovery. This can include the return of the ability to enjoy life, greater clarity of thought, improved ability to relax, and greater social engagement.

I have worked for many years with people who are suffering from depression. Depression can manifest in a number of ways- lack of interest in activities that previously made you happy, low energy, a decrease or increase in appetite, a sense of hopelessness, substance usage etc. When one experiences sadness which is pervasive it can be very troubling and frightening. One's outlook on life when depressed can seem very bleak and as thought it may never lift.

Depression often results in a person believing that the only position to take is one of helplessness and hopelessness. Friends and family often cannot understand why their loved one cannot take action. However, to the person affected by depression, ruminating is the action they are taking which feels just as valid as any other type of action. Negative memories and negative interpretation of events dominante. It is difficult to accept the unknown and they under-estimate their ability to cope. Fatalistic beliefs, ambiguity and unfocused attention add to the overwhelming power of depression. In therapy, I help clients accept the unknown, focus attention, and transform the critical voice.

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.

The benefits of a successful treatment of depression include reductions in the severity and frequency of depressive episodes. The capacity to reframe depression as an experience of growth into wisdom, leads to recovery. This can include the return of the ability to enjoy life, greater clarity of thought, improved ability to relax, and greater social engagement. I practice a relational, psychodynamic therapy informed by psychoanalysis and Gestalt.

Depression robs us of joy and the ability to thrive in life. When I work with a client suffering from depression, we discover ways to both alleviate the symptoms that make daily life such a struggle and look at the underlying issues that are causing the depression. Gestalt therapy builds our awareness to the beliefs and past experiences that interrupt our ability to get the sense of connection in life needed to not be depressed. My approach helps people have greater awareness of the dynamics within them that lead to their depression so they can get at the underlying issues and truly change their lives.

Many people have felt sad or depressed at times. Our moods go up and down based on our experiences, physical wellbeing, affected by our day to day encounters. Feeling depressed can be a normal reaction to loss, life's labors, or a wounded self-esteem. But when feelings of extreme sadness -- including feeling hopeless, and worthless last for many days and then to weeks and keep you from performing normally, your depression may be something more than sadness. It may very well be clinical depression – which is a treatable medical condition. A sign of depression is either depressed mood or loss of interest in activities you once enjoyed for more than just a few days. In addition, the depressive symptoms need to cause clinically significant distress or...(view profile to read more)

Depression has many different faces. It can be triggered by sad events, like the loss of a loved one, or by seemingly happy events, like the birth of a child. Sometimes it can even be caused by influences we don’t really understand. Helping individuals identify the causes of their depression, and explore new ways to cope are at the heart of my work in this area. Often clients who begin therapy because of depression discover that what they are feeling is to past trauma, issues related to their family history or upbringing, negative thinking or limiting beliefs. With the opportunity to work through past issues in a safe, non-judgmental setting often helps people find relief from their overwhelming emotions and lift the fog of depression that has been weighing them down.

When treating depression, I employ cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) therapy which is empirically validated in research studies to help people with depression. By modifying routines and behavior and learning how to challenge dysfunctional thoughts, clients are helped to improve mood in a relatively short time. This approach is collaborative, active, and supportive. Clients are usually asked to keep records, complete worksheets, test new behaviors, run experiments, and report back on the outcome.

Depression presents itself uniquely in each individual. Further, in working with children and young adults, they can too often be misdiagnoses as their behavioral presentation is labeled as disruptive and oppositional. Having a clear understanding of depression impacts the behavioral outlook of the individual is pivotal on developing an effective plan in addressing these concerns. By working with my clients and families in understanding the depression we are often able to shape the environment in which the depression exists. Joining this with cognitive behavioral and evidenced based interventions, we are then able to more effectively address these symptoms in our pursuit of long term goals.
