While grieving is a healthy and normal life experience, it can also be hard, lonely, and confusing. Loved ones don't always know how best to support us. The unpredictable nature, intensity, and sheer variety of emotions we experience may make us feel like strangers to ourselves. In my work, I help clients to cope with the impact grief has on their moods, behaviors, thoughts, beliefs, physical well-being, relationships, work, and sense of self. I act as a compassionate guide, teacher, and deep listener as clients find their way through the pain of loss to a sense of healing. We may use written exercises, creative arts, or create rituals, according to a client's needs and wishes.

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.

I approach grief and loss with empathic cognitive behavioral techniques. Research studies have found that Cognitive Therapy is just as effective as medications. Some studies suggest that clients who receive CT or Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) do not tend to have as much relapse after therapy is concluded. This outcome may be because clients learn coping skills that can be used in the future. CT may help you become more emotionally healthy, more resistant to life stressors and less prone to anxiety, depression, or other problem areas in the future.
