People go through challenging stages when coping with the loss of a loved one. When coping with a loss it is common for people to experience feelings of Anger, Guilt, Regret, and a Sense of Numbness. It is important to know that grief is natural and will not last forever. Grief counseling is sometimes necessary to work through the pain of such a difficult time in one's life.

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.

There are many forms of Grief and Loss. Some losses are immediate and some are ongoing, as in the experience of having a loved one with a chronic illness. There is also the grief and loss that we experience as our own health is lost or when we lose a job or role in our lives that gave us a sense of purpose and passion. The key to gracefully experiencing grief and loss lies in learning how to feel safe being present with what you're feeling; how to know when what you're feeling is truly normal; and how to find a sense of true peace through balancing the memories and your appreciation of the past with the opportunities that exist now for finding new meaning and purpose in your life.

When you experience a painful loss, it can seem easier to just ignore the pain and hope that you will be able to move beyond it. However, that may also mean that you will have to ignore any happy memories along with your sad memories, and that any remembrances can remain painful for longer than is needful. Working with a compassionate, understanding therapist can provide a safe environment for you to explore the full range of emotions, so that your pain can heal and you can truly move beyond the loss. I can help you to go through the grieving process in your own way, at your own pace, and make the process less isolating and overwhelming.

Grief is a natural process that sometimes takes guidance when we get lost in the grief process. Everyone's grief is unique and can be complicated when the last few months or years of the relationship were not healthy and were strained relationships. How can you repair them when the other person is gone? Compassionate and guided approaches can encourage the healing process. No one need stay in the state of perpetual loss and not fine release and peace and the courage to let go and find new meaning for their life. It is possible to make peace with the passed.

Grief and loss is a functional part of being human. While we all accept this reality we are all too often unprepared for the emotional impact of the event. The loss of anyone close to us is always difficult. Sometimes we are impacted by the loss of others whom we do not even know. The loss of a child, spouse or significant other is often the most painful. In therapy we will explore the level of grief and loss and help to minimize the pain while understanding and realizing our own needs. counseling will provide coping teaching tools, allowing us to move on with our lives.

Depression and anxiety are often a result of not having processed past difficult situations. We all experience loss, and we have a natural process involving our emotions which helps us recover. Most of us do not receive the permission or the teaching to help us use this natural process. Therapy can help work through "stuck" experiences so that we are freer to move forward in life with less restriction.
