Depression is that feeling that zaps out the good and somehow makes the bad seem 100 times worse. It is the spiral that spins you dizzy with sadness, makes time go by slower and subtracts the happy from our worlds. Depression comes in many shapes and sizes and masquerades as all kinds of other issues. I can assist you in addressing your depression through reality testing, unconditional positive regard and rational behavior therapy.

Most clients suffer from some form of depression, due to work, marriage, family, or addiction problems. First if the symptoms are sever we recommend a consultation from a medical doctor. If the client suffers from insomnia, difficulty concentrating, anhedonia, or dramatic weight changes , we strongly suggest the client meet with their medical doctor. Also many people will call because they are struggling with depression, and sometimes it is due to an underlying medical condition, such as anemia, vitamin D deficiency, mono, thyroid condition etc. So we ask clients to request blood test be ordered by their doctor. After the vegetative symptoms are assessed and treated, then we proceed .

Terence Cochran, Ph.D., MFT

Marriage and Family Therapist, Psychoanalyst

Within Driving Distance of La Mirada, CA

Depression can have roots in the earliest years of our lives due to hurts at a sensitive age, or can result from current experiences of traumas, losses, and disappointments. Often these two origins dovetail, with current stressors resurrecting earlier levels of depression. A good therapy will take seriously the level and personal experience of depression. Clear introspection into the cause, development of truly effective coping strategies, and support for a process of working through depression is the basis of my therapeutic approach.

All of us occasionally experience feelings of sadness. Most of the time, these painful interludes clear rapidly. Clinical depression, however, is an extremely painful state which is characterized by intense feelings of hopelessness and despair. When this mood state occurs, professional help is needed. My therapeutic process allows the here and now experience between therapist and client to reveal how present day thoughts, feelings, and beliefs formed in the past influence your current life and affect your mood. Bringing to light the cognitive processes that may be holding the depression in place help you gain the clarity and control needed to restore your health. Please feel free to call.

There are two emotions which can be utilized in the process of healing from trauma: anger and sadness. Sadness can be a very effective vehicle for healing. The only problem with sadness is that it is such a short leap from there to depression. Sadness heals; depression does not. Depression can keep a person stuck in the same place for years without any progress. You must be very careful not to fall into depression when you decide to explore your feelings about the negative experiences of your life. Unfortunately, many people find the difference between sadness and depression to be obscure at best, and they often vacillate between the two. We encourage you to be very careful of depression becau....

Sometimes "talk therapy" alone can relieve depression and most clients find it to be helpful. I do utilize cognitive therapy when dealing with depression because our thoughts have a great deal to do with our feelings and there is evidence that this treatment approach to depression can be quite effective. When necessary, I will provide a psychiatric referral for an evaluation to determine whether or not you are a candidate for medication.

Making the decision to go to therapy can be a difficult one to make. Finding the right therapist can be even harder. My treatment focuses on depression that stems out of childhood trauma. Feelings of despair, worthlessness, and feeling little hope can all be rooted in the isolation of trauma as a child. I specialize in working with survivors of childhood trauma (children, teens, and adults) in a short-term therapy model.

I practice a type of therapy for depression called Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) which research has shown to be especially effective with depressive disorders. Using CBT, we work together to discover underlying beliefs (which we call cognitive distortions) that are causing or contributing to your depressive symptoms. Once identified, we then use a variety of techniques to help you correct those thinking patterns that are causing you difficulty. We measure progress constantly so that we can try new techniques if needed, to help you feel better.

Depression is stigmatized, leaving sufferers feeling isolated. Lack of education regarding depression causes others to assume its under the person's control; when often there are biological factors blocking healing. Callous terms like "Snap out of it" leave the sufferer feeling all the more hopeless, because they can't snap out of it any more than a diabetic can snap out of diabetes without medical attention or treatment. Depression can be the result of a depletion of significant hormones in the brain. The Word of God is a powerful tool I use with clients to stifle the negative cognitions of depression. I refer clients for medical intervention when depression is not responding to therapy.

Depression can rear it's ugly head when we least expect and without being fully aware that it is happening. Losing interest in activities that were once pleasurable, feeling overwhelmed and tired, sleeping in excess can all be signs of depression.

A need for emotional connection is wired into our DNA as a survival mechanism. But in response to childhood experiences, you may have developed patterns of relating to people that interfere with that essential attachment, so you feel chronically disconnected and depressed. At one time, these patterns protected you from a less than nurturing environment. But now they’re doing more harm than good. Like a self-fulfilling prophecy, your expectations about how others will treat you can lead you to behave in ways that elicit the very responses you fear. EFT can help you heal your relationships and mood. Research shows EFT can be as effective as medication in relieving the symptoms of depression.

Depression is biological, emotional and physical in nature. If you're feeling overwhelmed, or like you are paralyzed in specific areas of your life. It's easy to stop trying. Make attempts to seek out help and connect to someone in the areas that bring you shame and feelings of worthlessness. Therapy can give an opportunity to confess those thoughts, in a safe environment, in order to come out from under the shame you feel and begin to find freedom.

Life can be very stressful these days. Cell phones, I Pads, smart phones, e mail, social networks all are fun and wonderful but they also bring with them higher expectations from work, family, friends and even ourselves. Our world keeps speeding up and the pressures can be great. Depression as an outgrowth of the stresses and pressures that surround us is becoming increasing common and a part of each of our lives. Most of us will experience depression at one or more points in our lives. Medication can help but is usually not the long term answer. We will work to identify the problems, find solutions, set goals and work toward minimizing the causes and find more peace and calm.

Depression can be crippling. By talking with an expert, becoming aware of the specific "kind" of depression (there are many kinds....hormonal, clinical, psychological to name a few ) you can understand the causes. By identifying the causes, your treatment plan will include looking deeper into the situations, people, experiences (past or present) which may be keeping you depressed. For instance, unresolved "anger" is a primary cause for depression. Also "loss" and "guilt". Talking will help. Your therapist will guide you in a direction to help you gain insight into what might be unresolved in your life and help you through it. Knowledge and understanding the causes are the beginning.

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.

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 often a state of confusion resulting from the lack of permission or guidance in processing difficult situations. An opportunity to work through past trauma can help lift depression so there is a greater emotional freedom to move forward and make choices in life.

Depression is not something that exists "in" you. It is something you experience in a context. When we are out of connection with others we can become depressed. My approach to healing depression is not to simple help people get "over" their depression but by helping people move in and through it. That means, feeling into the pain and potential danger of feeling the feelings that are in you. When we are not alone in our feelings they can change.

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.

In treatment we will break this loop and get you into a positive feedback loop, so that you can begin to feel better. At first it can feel like trying to push a rock up a hill, but your therapist will support you until you are able to take small steps to feel better.

Depression should be seen as normal in that all of us experience depression periodically. Too much depression is discouraging and can be treated. Find out of your depression is "normal" or clinically troubling. Relief from depression is available for most depressed persons. Often depressed persons are understimuated with not enough fun or activity. On the other hand depression can be seen as the opposite of "expression" where thoughts, feelings and needs are not sufficiently acknowledge and expressed.

CBT is a particularly effective treatment for depression, both as a combined approach with medication and as a stand alone treatment. Participating in CBT therapy for depression can help you restructure negative thought patterns and get out of negative cycles of thinking. Changing the way you think can help you interpret your environment and interactions with others in a more effective and positive way, improving the way you feel about yourself and helping improve your relationships with others. It may also help you recognize things that may be contributing to the depression and help you start doing things that lead to a reduction of symptoms and feelings of meaningful happiness.

Not that I do not empathize with the suffering depression brings, but I do think depression can be instructive to your lives. While many people view depression as simply a bad thing and/or something we just want to get rid of, I view depression as a unique opportunity to learn from the depression. Why is the depression there? I have not met anyone who was depressed that did not feel that way for a reason. Symptoms of depression usually tell us clues as to why the human soul is suffering, and also can also provide further clues to the solutions. Many solutions easily flow right out of finding out the "why's" and "what's" of the depression.

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.

Again deep breathing is the key here. The inhale will energize you and the exhale will relax you. Low energy is a key symptom of depression. Also hopelessness and helplessness. Changing the way you breathe will directly change your nervous system and change the way you feel physiologically. It will also change the way you perceive reality. If you have clinical depression (not situational) then medication in addition to psychotherapy may be advised. Mostly I help people get off medication.

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.

Depression is a particularly cruel and insidious companion, often working in tandem with other problems to try to silence us, to steal joy and passion, and to convince us of our uselessness. Depression may try to convince us that there is one truth - our own unworthiness - to the exclusion of all others. Together we will challenge depression's version of your story.

Depression can be debilitating and sometimes just getting out of bed is a monumental effort. Sufferers just want to feel better and less overwhelmed by life and that's where I come in. I have extensive experience in this area and I think part of the reason my clients have shown improvements with their depressive symptoms is because we take small steps and tackle things one at a time. Negative thoughts and limiting beliefs can often contribute to depression and my approach is to explore where they come from and then replace them with healthier beliefs and patterns. Clients will be able to see the connections between their beliefs and behaviors and then be given tools on how to make changes.

Depression is a complicated, but debilitating experience. Many factors may contribute to your depression, and a multi-faceted approach is often necessary to address physical, social, emotional, cognitive, and spiritual contributing factors. Sometime tackling depression means processing unresolved memories or situations; at other times the best approach involves the here-and-now. Changes in one area often effect changes in another, so the important thing is to dive in with courage to work toward change. I know how hard this can be when suffering depression, and the fact that you are here researching help is a great first step. Let's work together at developing a plan that re-empowers you.

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.

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. As we explore how you feel, I listen in a way that provides the client with clarity, offer guidance without imposing decisions, accept the client as they are, without making judgments, as they move forward in achieving

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 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.

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.

If the people in your life haven't ever experienced depression (which is different than being depressed), they can't understand why you can't get over it, move on with your life, or do the things that you used to do. Some people even get into "cheerleading" (c'mon-- you can do it!). That's why I work to understand your depression and help you to manage the feelings of helplessness, despair, and frustration related to depression--little by little, day by day, you might start to get better under my care as I would do my best to understand what you're going through.

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.
