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!

Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor

Depression is one of the most disabling conditions a human being can experience. When you're going through it, it's nearly impossible to believe it can get better. But it can. If you're experiencing depression, I urge you to get treatment as soon as possible, whether with me or someone else. If you work with me, we'll start out with behavior changes you can make that will help you feel a little better right away. As our work progresses, we'll look at a wide variety of influences on your depression and tailor your treatment plan to your needs. I include positive psychology perspectives in my work, which means I can help you not only reduce symptoms but increase the level of happiness.

Depression is a common yet serious illness that is treatable with a 3 prong approach: medical attention (to rule out medical issues contributing), psycho-therapy (to treat underlying contributing), and diet and exercise routine (walking, nutritious meals, etc.). Collaborative care can provide the support needed to address challenges and live your life fully.

Adam Dorsay, Psy.D.

Licensed Psychologist

1120 McKendrie Street, San Jose, CA 95126

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.

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.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

1022 W Hedding St, San Jose, CA 95126

When self-criticism meets self-compassion, the heavy fog of depression lifts. I will help you release the chronic worry, regret, and feelings of inadequacy that fuel depression. I will help you end the rumination that fuels insomnia, one of depression's most painful and debilitating symptoms. I will also help you seek out and celebrate all that is good in you, your loved ones, and your world. Moreover, we will identify the activities, behaviors, and people that make you feel good. We will then make these sources of good feeling more prominent in your life. With the tools of compassion, gratitude, and skillful behavior at your command, you will be empowered to create a life worth living.

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

San Jose, CA 95111

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.

In my depression treatment practice, I use a therapeutic approach that is exceptionally powerful. Some of my clients have experienced remarkable results in as little as one session. How can this happen? I combine an unusually effective combination of methods known for producing rapid and significant change. As a psychotherapist, I bring to therapy the skills I acquired while studying for a Masters and a Ph.D. in Psychology. My book Healing & Wholeness: Complementary and Alternative Therapies for Mental Health examines thousands of studies that have demonstrated the superior level of healing that is possible when mental health is addressed from a mind-body-spirit perspective.

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.
