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.

Are you depressed? Depression is the most commonly experienced emotional disorder. Depression is a combination of both physical and mental symptoms. Fatigue, lack of energy, poor sleep, under or over eating, lack of interest in those you love and lack of interest in sex are some of the physical symptoms of depression. Thinking negatively, ruminating over problems, being irritable and angry are some of the mental symptoms of depression. If you know or believe that you are depressed, seeking out professional help can be a true life saver. I'd like to offer you help and hope, with practical suggestions and guidance in a safe environment to resolve your depression and find joy in living.

Are you feeling down, depressed, having negative thoughts, and feeling stuck, out of energy? Depression affects most people, to some degree, at some point in life. Seeking help is enormously important because the cycle of depression needs to be interrupted. When I work with depression, I focus on the interaction between the thoughts that we tell ourselves, our day-to-day behaviors and our mood. This is called CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy), and is the treatment of choice for depression. I also use positive, strength/values based interventions from the field of Positive Psychology, which has also been found to be a strong intervention. Break the cycle, reach out.

Depression can feel as though a deep fog has fallen over your familiar life so that nothing feels clear, it is hard to think and all you want to do is withdraw into an empty room. People may tell you that you can "just snap out of it", not realizing that depression is truly an illness. Extended stress, a sudden crisis or even a genetic tendency for depression will deplete the biochemicals you need in your brain. That is why the best treatment for depression is medication to build up the needed biochemicals and 'talk therapy' to understand what issues in your life were behind this illness. This new understanding of old blocks in your life will allow you to move ahead more freely.

When you do not seek help for depression, you suffer needlessly. The depression gets worse if feelings are unexpressed, coupled with isolation. We will begin by identifying options for the future and setting realistic goals that enable you to enhance your mental and emotional well-being. We will focus and draw on your strengths, focus on the positives and you will learn tools and skills needed to move through this state. I will help you understand and improve communication patterns of interacting with other people, should it contribute to the depression. You will make small changes each day. We build on it. Gradually you will incorporate enjoyable, fulfilling activities back into your life

Depression manifests in many ways but the overriding symptoms in children are irritability, changes in sleeping and eating habits, low energy, not seeming to enjoy things that once were fun and isolating. Some have feelings of hopelessness. I work with my clients, to gain an understanding of what they feel. We work together to uncover the deeper reasons for the feelings, the thoughts and behavior. And then begin to learn ways to change the thoughts and feelings so they can once again feel more confident that things will work out for them.

Depression is like being stuck in a dark pit, and you don't know the way out, and you have no energy to try. I'm here to give you hope and to help you find a way out of the dark. We start with little steps that you can take, to help you breathe and survive. We may then address some of the causes of your depression, whether they are patterns of emotions, behaviors, thoughts, or unfinished emotional business or trauma from your past. My goal is not only that you not only overcome the depression, but also become strong, full of life and vitality and confident of your own inner strength.

Symptoms of depression can leave one feeling lost and alone. Counseling can help you gain your bearings and find your way back to normalcy. Often our thoughts are a major contributor to these feelings of hopelessness and helplessness that accompany depression. Your thought patterns can provide a roadmap to understanding some of the causes that may have lead to these symptoms. Changing these negative thought patterns and learning new coping skills often lead to symptom relief. Sometimes post-traumatic-stress from traumatic events in childhood or adulthood cause you to feel stuck in a cycle of dispair. EMDR has proven effectve for desensitizing the trauma caused by these events.

Depression feels like walking through mud. We lose ourselves and wonder if we will ever be found again. Often depression is a result of unexpressed negative emotions (which we were never allowed to safely express in our family of origin - so we swallowed it instead). I am very comfortable with the shame and humility that the human condition sometimes hands us - and I can sit with my clients while they work through unexpressed sadnesses - and ultimately find joy in 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.

Has anyone ever implied you should just "snap out of" depression? Oh, boy, do they not understand! If depression is keeping you from living the life you want, I can help. I understand that depression is a complex emotional, physical, and psychological disease. Often historical, genetic and environmental factors contribute to depression. Together we can sort out those complex factors and address them one by one. Depression is not your fault, nor is it a moral failing. You can feel better. You can feel alive again. Studies show that even contacting a therapist can give you hope. Give it a try. I'm waiting to hear from you.

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.

Depression can be painful for the person suffering from it as well as those closest to them. When we are depressed, previously enjoyable activities can appear meaningless. We lose interest in connecting with others (often exacerbating symptoms). Furthermore, it can feel as though there is "no point" to life. We all have periods of time when we feel less than ideal, but depression is severe and enduring. Counseling provides an atmosphere where it is safe to discuss these feelings.

Depression has many causes. Sadness or low energy are what most indicates someone is depressed. Often there are biological, psychological, social, and spiritual reasons when one is depressed. When looking at a brain scan, one can see indicators of depression. Depression is a biological problem. Yet it is not only our genes that influence our depression, but sleep, food, and exercise also affect us. Our thinking, feelings, and choices of action affect our depression as well. When we criticize ourselves excessively, we magnify our depression. Our depression may be a result of avoiding emotions that seem overwhelming. Depression is affected by my relationships. When depressed, one can isolate them self and then be deprived of the energy that comes from human interaction.

Does life seem bleak right now? Have you lost interest in the things you used to enjoy? Do you feel sad most of the time? Do you have little to look forward to, and a lot you’d prefer not to look back on? When you are convinced that things will never get better no matter what, you are depressed.

Depression is a difficult thing to deal with on your own. Therapy can provide support as you find ways to increase your energy level, motivation, and sense of inspiration. Together, we can explore past experiences, current challenges, and future goals. Consider that you are not depressed. But rather, you are experiencing depression at this time in your life. There is still so much to live for and do!

Depression can be a very lonely and scary experience. People experiencing it can feel hopeless and helpless at times. The good news is that counseling is a very effective treatment for mild to moderate depression and I have seen my clients improve when they have struggled with depression. Having a safe place to talk about the thoughts, feelings, and behaviors associated with depression, helping my clients identify their blind spots and generating alternatives, and knowing that I am on my client's team trying to help them through this challenge has been very beneficial for the people I have helped.

Depression can set in when our emotions or negative thought patterns become overwhelming and too much to hold. Pain or hardship often is too much to hold alone. With my help, we can start to open to emotion, bring a wise awareness to thought patterns, and to find aliveness again. If we can make friends with our emotions, stop fighting them, and to recognize their purpose in regulating the nervous system or showing us what matters to us, tremendous resilience can be found on the other side.

Depression can be relieved by getting out of your house or apartment to come to therapy. Talking to a therapist moves some of the stuck emotions and gets energy flowing even if only for a short while. By talking and other non-verbal techniques such as sandplay therapy and dreamwork, we can discover what your psyche and unconscious needs to grow and heal. Depression signifies the need to change direction. Therapy can help you see what changes you may need to make to live a happy life.

There is hope!! How you experience your depression can change. The truth is we all suffer from varying degrees of depression. Depression is not necessarily to be cured but to better understood. Pain is a teacher, not an enemy. What one generally thinks is the problem may not turn out to be the problem, the problem is generally how you deal with the problem. The real challenge of working through depression is learning about your own process of beliefs, opinions, judgements, etc. When you get a better understanding of your process and learn how to process differently is when you will discover more times than not your depression alleviating.

Depression and chronic worry often go hand in hand and both leave us feeling helpless and alone. I work with people who are locked in cycles of repetitive, negative thinking to see that the wisdom of the body can be harnessed to help change the cycle. You can learn to listen to your body-mind's need for being accepted, encouraged, and loved, rather than harassed, put-down and pushed. Depression is the fear of doing things on the job, in relationship or in life less than perfectly. And yet perfection isn't possible. We can work together to release you from the bonds of skewed thinking. You can practice new skills, especially acceptance of yourself, other people and our human frailties.

If you are reading this, and wondering if you might be depressed, you probably are. Even if one is used to it, depression sucks the life energy out of a person, dampening their ability to concentrate, to be creative or have hope for a good future.

Anyone who has struggled with depression knows that relief can be hard to come by. I take a very pro-active and collaborative approach in working with clients facing depression. I help clients both work with and manage their depressive symptoms, as well as helping them access and work through the underlying causes of those symptoms. For example, I find that addressing the anger, grief or sadness that is oftentimes "underneath" the depression goes a tremendous way in beginning to shift the depression itself. When appropriate, I also work collaboratively with a client's physician to build treatment plans that include both medication and therapy, an often very effective combination.

Using a variety of methods, we can find ways to help you feel a renewed sense of purpose, confidence, and joy in your life.

But did you know that depression can also show up as irritability, patterns of avoidance, aggression, and anxiety?

Depression is often a deadening that comes from grief and anger that is buried inside, because of feelings of powerlessness about expressing them. Together we trace the sources of hopeless and worthless feelings in your life, and rework your understanding of what caused them. Often people are mired in guilt or shame when they are depressed, and these feelings can even come from childhood sources. I help you to express the feelings you never had a chance to, were afraid or ashamed to, always at your own pace. As your attitudes toward yourself shift, and your held feelings are expressed in session, you find you are enlivened.

Depression is usually caused from helplessness in the face of overwhelming situations. This can be a learned response from unresolved traumas in your past.

Emotional or physical pain sends us the signal that something is wrong, its critical that we pay attention and hear what it has to say. We spontaneously brace against physical and emotional threats to our survival, yet ongoing resistance to the pain and our circumstances cause further pain. To avoid feelings of discomfort many attempt to numb their distress or tune it out, temporary fixes that will not end the suffering. I will support you in giving voice to what needs to be healed as you discover your individual path to freedom from ongoing depression.

Oftentimes, if you scratch the surface of depression, you will find loss, anger, despair, a lack of meaning or purpose, a profound sense of disappointment with others, with oneself, with the way that one's life has been lived. These are the issues that I really try to get to with my clients that come in suffering from depression. I often find that depression is connected to childhood experiences of emotional neglect or inattention. I help my clients articulate and grieve these early experiences and offer them an attuned and empathic relationship that helps them to feel seen and validated. This helps them to see and to value themselves, which opens them up to invest more fully in their life.
