Loss is always difficult, but if the grief impacts your daily living, I can help you get your life back. The first step is helping you to adjust to the changes, then we work towards emotional acceptance, with the final step being a renewal of self-awareness. Processing grief does take time; I often use EMDR to facilitate the process and help minimize the time it takes to heal. I am also comfortable working within a spiritual or religious context.

Sometimes the grief of a loss is overwhelming. Grief is seen as a normal response to loss. Coaching and teaching are used to help the grieving person learn how to cope with the loss. Therapy also helps the grieving person to come to grips with changes in life that are part of the loss. There may always be sadness at the loss but there can be resolution.

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.

No one can live and not experience the pain of loss. Our culture typically views a loss as something to be replaced. Rushing to replace a loss without embracing the many emotions that come along with it will compound the pain and hinder our ability to move forward. There is simply no getting "past" the loss of a job or one's health. Losses must be commemorated with expressions of mourning and grief. Losing a pet, a friend or a cherished dream is a painful experience for even the strongest among us. Ask for help and be patient with yourself.

Will I ever be happy again? Experiencing grief can be one of the most stressful and painful times in your life. We all do grief differently; anger, shock, denial, guilt, overwhelming sadness. Are you open to having me help you process these confusing feelings and work through this pain? It is normal to feel lonely and not want to be around anyone at this time. How do you begin to make a new life without your loved one a part of it? We can explore these answers together.

Grief is the most complex series of emotions humans are capable of, and it invades our lives at the most inconvenient times. Our first reaction is to bury these feelings and push them below the surface so we can carry on with our day-to-day lives. We opt for appearing like we have it all together while trying to numb the pain through various activities—resorting to anywhere from workaholism to alcoholism. But the feelings will return, and if deeply suppressed, may return with a vengeance years later. Unresolved grief can lead to depression, anger issues and a host of other problems. You can heal through this experience and I'm willing to walk with you on the journey.

Counselor for Men and Couples

In 85016 - Nearby to Surprise.

I help men who are dealing with grief and loss, either of a loved one or the loss of a marriage or a relationship. A lot of times it's really difficult for men to get in touch with their emotions, and in grief, it's often not an exception. Men have a hard time with grief, just like women, and have a hard time experiencing loss. For guys, loss is not something that were used to, because we're often so acclimated to winning. to be a man is to win in our society, but life often has other plans. I help men struggle through the difficult experiences of grief and loss, and come out the other side.

Grief and loss can be experienced as a result of death, divorce, a change in your work or living situation, or anything that causes a significant change in your life. The feelings that arise can be very mixed. Sometimes sadness is mixed with relief, the relief mixed with guilt, and just when you feel you've got your feet on the ground, the ground seems to drop out from under them. The process of healing from loss is complex. Often hurts that were buried for years arise with the onset of the loss. My goal is to support my clients through this painful time, and to help you develop new strengths and wisdom so that as you heal, you will find yourself stronger and wiser than ever before.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

In 85021 - Nearby to Surprise.

When we suffer a loss we grieve, but often we are given bad advice on how to grieve - "You've grieved long enough, just move on" or "You shouldn't feel the way you feel." People may feel uncomfortable with the length or intensity of our expressions of grief and we may feel guilty about expressing grief. But feeling sad, overwhelmed and confused is a natural part of grieving. You must go through the process at your own pace. I will help you express and process your grief in a safe, supportive environment, so that you can begin to live again, not forgetting, but honoring your memories without being overwhelmed.

Grief takes many forms and there is no right way to grieve. Creating a space to work out negative beliefs in regards to loss is very important. Over the years, I have utilized multiple techniques to heal deeply from loss. EMDR is a specific process to reduce distress and improve cognitive processing of traumatic events and grief is a trauma. Call today.

Loss is part of life. Most understand grief as a natural consequence of losing a loved one, but we often lose possessions, relationships, jobs, and dreams, and do not give these losses the attention they require. Grieving is the "antidote" to loss as long as the grieving process is effective. I would consider it an honor to be with you as you honor your losses through grieving. We will work together to help you discover a new context for your life in the light of what you have lost.
