I support clients in grief work by validating their experiences, sharing their pain, normalizing and educating them about the stages and transitions after loss and helping them re-center themselves in their lives to find purpose and meaning. Clients need compassion and a witness to share the story of the loss and often struggle to redefine their lives without the person who has died. I help them to work on that redefinition as they shift between and among the stages of loss.

There is no linear progression in the healing process. And grief and loss may come in many forms, the death of a loved one, a career, a relationship a stage in life. A person needs to heal from changes that comes in many forms. I can help with that process by normalizing, identifying and supporting coping strategies in this process. The stages of grief and loss are explored and meaning making is created as I support my client through their healing process.

When you have suffered a significant loss, it can be difficult to talk with the people who love you most because it can increase the distress of everyone involved. But talking is a way humans find positive meaning in even the most catastrophic events. A grief therapist can be a caring witness to all the complicated thoughts and feelings you have after a loss. Talking your way through the stages of grief with a therapist helps you move through the grief instead of suppressing it, release all the pain, and gradually to heal.

Losses can be intensely painful and therapy can help you work through those emotions and overcome blocks in the grieving process. As you may realize, trying to avoid feelings of sadness and anger doesn't work. You may feel waves of sadness or like the pain will never stop but it will if you deal with it. The most important factor in healing from loss is having the support of other people. Trying to get enough sleep, eat right, and exercise can help too. If you want support to ease your pain, I am here for you.

Grief and loss is, unfortunately, a normal part of living. There is no single "correct" way to grieve: different cultures and even individuals from the same culture grieve differently. The only consistent feature is that grief takes time. The most effective thing anyone can do for someone grieving is to be there—to listen, to empathize, to walk along with the grief. There is no "fixing" grief. But counseling can help prevent normal grief from developing into major depression or other mental health conditions.

Grey Matters International and the work of Kevin J. Fleming, Ph.D approaches issues of grief & loss through the lens of innovation----instead of growing the same neural networks responsible for the pain in weekly therapy sessions, we reset the brain to move forward quicker and efficiently by working on the stuck limbic system so as to empower the person with more success and traction. For no one wants to stay in a grief mode for too long; but when you don’t include the brain in your work with someone, you risk describing the water to them while they drown and calling it success. Contact Grey Matters International, Inc now at firstname.lastname@example.org or 877-606-6161.

Grief is a natural and normal response to loss. There is always unfinished business when something ends. Sometimes the support you receive from family and friends is not enough. People who are close to you may have a need for you to appear to feel better sooner than you actually do. Clients I work with have felt it becomes less difficult to cope when they have time to talk about their loss with me. Identifying and expressing uncomfortable feelings like anger, anxiety and guilt is difficult to do alone. I work with people to develop effective and new methods of coping. Over time, I help my clients accept that their loss is a part of their life, but no longer defines them.
