In my work with clients experiencing depression, I bring with me many years of watching individuals learn to cope toward leading a life of meaning -- and even joy! Depression is a reality for many people, but it is also treatable. In counseling, you may feel less isolated with plenty of space to talk about the reality of depression that is not often shared in our daily relationships. I gather a variety of evidence based treatments from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy combined with unconditional positive regard to work with clients, instilling hope.

Suffering with depression can make life unbearable. I understand the difficulty involved in making changes in your life when depression finds a way to creep into each and every move you make. I work with individuals dealing with depression by exploring how depression interferes in your life and identifying unique strategies that will allow you to manage your depression and lift your mood. I will help you identify behavioral and biological strategies that will create much needed change. I offer a warm collaborative and empathic approach to treatment.

Depression is so sticky. Sometimes it is overwhelming and it is hard to see any light. Other times depression is just barely under the surface, always just a split second away as you try so hard to keep up with your life. In therapy we will look at those grooves your brain has learned to run down, the grooves that have decided depression is "home base" or the best way of coping with the situations you are in. Thankfully you are more resilient even than you realize. Your whole self (brain included!) is ready to write new pathways as you create a support system for yourself in this new season. Isolation increases and intensifies depression. Let's create a path forward - into more light!

When working with people suffering from depression I find it important to hold hope for the people I see, even when they can not do it for themselves. I hold onto the hope that people can change, circumstances can change, and despite where they are now, the power of human persistence and perseverance will prevail. Depression takes time, support, and hope, and I work with people to implement self care while they work through their depression. Depression isn't something you just "snap out of", it takes time, and sometimes it's just going to suck for a while, until it doesn't.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

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.

Psychotherapist and Couples Counselor in West Seattle

I specialize in helping client develop a different relationship with their depression by using an integrative approach, that client and therapist create together. In a nutshell, we first get to the bottom of any undiagnosed trauma, which is the major cause of depression, and process and clear the trauma in the body. We work with "depressive thinking" and cognitive distortions (untrue or irrational beliefs), and clarify how to manage our thinking. Also addressed are issues of nutrition, diet and exercise, and problems with activating change. We then build a "plan for life," geared toward supporting a clients' passions as well as a balanced lifestyle and healthy relationships.

Elizabeth Wurzel, the wrote of depression, "a human being can survive almost anything, as long as she sees the end in sight. But depression is so insidious and it compounds daily, that it's impossible to ever see the end. The fog is like a cage without a key." My goal in treating depression is to help my clients find that key out of the cage she so aptly describes, using cognitive-behavioral and psychotherapy approaches. By understanding the impact life experience and genetics plays in its developing, and examining unhealthy core beliefs and replacing them with more accurate evaluations and healthy self-regard, people can feel the fog of depression lift.

I work with parents struggling with depression, in particular, mothers struggling with postpartum mood disorders. Becoming a parent is extremely stressful and stress can often trigger the onset of depression. Many new parents feel tremendous guilt and apprehension around depression or anxiety, particularly if it effects their relationships in their marriage or with their children. You are not alone. The first step is reaching out for support.

Take charge of your depression. I can help you learn tools to lessen depression and start feeling better. Our thoughts, our current lifestyle, friends or lack of, all contribute to how we feel. Past failures tend to repeat themselves until they are understood. When getting motivated, completing tasks, or social relationships are a struggle the stress of this can lead to depression. Don't put up with feeling other people have more enjoyment in life than you do. Research is showing us that there are ways we can feel better without using medication.

When working with clients who are suffering from depression, I like to work on two parallel tracks at once. The first is a practical track designed to help the client start making changes in his/her external life. For example, if someone is socially isolated, I help him/her figure out how he/she can start to be around other people. The second track is an interior track through which we examine the root causes of the depression and begin to heal the inner wounds that have led to the person's suffering in the first place. I find that, through working on both these levels at once, depression is more quickly and effectively shifted.
