Any time there is a significant loss in our life , grief will follow. Something we value is gone and there is an emptiness, a sadness within our heart. Grief is a realization of our powerlessness, the awareness that our hard work, our prayers, or our will power can not restore what has been lost. Grief is a process, a time of recovery. We need a safe place where we can express our feelings, receive empathy, love and supper to work through the pain. Mourning and grieving are a part of moving to the next phase, we should neither eliminate this season nor stay in it. We are unable to keep someone from dying, stop a child from choosing sin, or prevent a spouse from makin wrong choices.

Kristi Starkey Counselor in Mission Viejo, CA will walk with you through the five stages of grief. Denial, which helps you survive the grief;. Anger which is important to feel and release. Bargaining because you want life to return back to what it was. Depression as you are filled with empty feelings and grief enters a deeper level.

Grief & loss is often felt with the death of a loved one. It can also be experienced from the loss of a relationship, your health, your job, or your home. The grieving process can be complicated. You may love someone who suffers from a significant memory loss due to Alzheimer’s, stroke or a traumatic brain injury. You may feel guilty for grieving the loss of the person you knew before the illness because you feel you should be grateful he/she is still alive. As a person loses their memory, an important part of who they are gets lost. It is appropriate for this grieving process to begin before death. I would love to support you through whatever loss you are currently experiencing.

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

Costa Mesa, CA 92626

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 kevin@kevinflemingphd.com or 877-606-6161.

Associate Clinical Social Worker

"Aren't you over that yet?" "Is that still bothering you?" I dislike those phrases very much! Everyone grieves differently and no two losses are the same. A loss can be characterized by a move, having to re-home a pet, changing jobs, and of course the loss of a loved one. One might feel angry while another might feel relieved. Someone might need a month off of work whereas another only a couple of days. It is okay and you can heal. I can help you sort through your feelings and you can feel better. Call me Today at 714-432-9856.

Clinical Psychologist

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....
