I have had many years of working in grief and loss, and what is hopeful is that whatever your loss is that is overwhelming you can change. It is a natural expectation to hope for a type of cure in grief and loss, yet in truth it’s really learning how to process and experience your grief and loss that is needed, and how profoundly helpful and meaningful it can be to share your experience. The Five Stages of Greif continue to be my foundation for grief work which also continues to be of substantial and significant help to many.

Loss is painful. Some losses hurt, but we're able to move past them. Some losses hit harder and we can get stuck in the sadness or anger or a sense of un-reality. We all experience loss during our lives, and all losses affect our sense of self to some degree. If you are struggling with grief that has knocked you off balance, together we can honor what you lost and discover ways for you to continue forward with a new reality.

Loss is an inevitable part of life and one of the toughest. Therapy can be extremely helpful and I have assisted many people through their losses. Some of the most common losses have included death of a family member or partner, death of a pet, loss of a relationship. While working with my clients as they experience their loss, I attempt to hone in on the uniqueness of the relationship and honor the meaning of it.

I know personally how painful grief and loss can be. Also, my studies and my work at Hospice, counseling people in grief, showed me the many facets of this journey. Whether a loved one has passed, or you are going through divorce, change of home or career, a major loss presents big challenges. You may very well face day to day difficulties like low energy, foggy thinking, overwhelming feelings, physical pain, and changing relationships. I can help you navigate these challenging days and weeks and months. Your journey through your grieving can ultimately be a blessing in your growth, self understanding, and in the expansion of your loving heart.

Do you need specialized GRIEF COUNSELING for COUPLES? Couples who have experienced significant loss have also experienced a crisis in their marriage. For some, this untimely difficulty has become a rich opportunity for growth bringing the two closer together. But for others, the crisis has brought major marital distress. As a grief counselor for couples, I help you: - Resist the temptation to inflict on to your partner the hurt that you are feeling. • Expand your support network so your partner is not your sole source of emotional support. • Teach you ways to constructively communicate the depth of the pain. • Find ways to find shared meaning and purpose out the suffering.

Grief - a natural and intense emotional response to loss. This loss if often of someone close to us, but can also be the loss of a career, time of life, or capability of some sort. Grief can also occur before the actual loss and is called "anticipatory grief". If you are suffering through this intense emotional experience, talking with a psychotherapist can bring support and relief in a safe and trusting environment.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

San Jose, CA 95111

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.

Grieving is a very personal experience and we all experience it differently and for different amounts of time. It helps to have someone you can share your experience of confusion, numbness, loss, relief or pain with who won't judge you, or tell you to "get over it." I work with people who are grieving the loss of a spouse, friend, or family member to death, Alzheimer's, chronic pain or addiction. The loss of a child who goes to college, the service, or moves out of the area is a grievous loss that almost no one understand who hasn't experienced it. I listen and we reflect on the times you have lost people and places that were precious to you, and you move towards acceptance, life and hope.
