Loss is a natural part of life, but that doesn’t make it any less difficult an experience when we lose someone close to us. The grief we feel at that moment can surround us completely, permeating every aspect of our lives. We can sometimes feel the grief we’re experiencing in our bodies, see it change our relationships and impact our work. It filters through into our daily thoughts, our vision for the future and our remembrances of the past. Grief is a natural and necessary process, but sometimes having support can help. Story is a powerful tool; maybe one of our most powerful. Telling your personal story of loss, as an individual and a family, is an important part of the work I do. It helps you develop the positive coping skills to manage your sadness,...(view profile to read more)

When we talk about grief, most people first think of death: mourning a loved one who has passed on. But a deep sense of loss and grief can be triggered by other life events where "death" is more metaphorical than actual. Clearly, the loss of any meaningful relationship through separation, divorce, or betrayal fits into that category. As does the loss of a position in life you held dear, or a role you relied on in defining yourself. Even the completion of a demanding creative project can leave you feeling empty or despairing. In any of these situations (and so many others) I can help you come to terms with a loss, respect it, gain meaning from it, and, eventually, move beyond it.

According to the Kubler-Ross model, there are five stages of grief: denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance. I believe that the grieving process is different for everyone. I think the most important thing for people who are dealing with loss is to accept that what they are feeling is normal for their process. My goal is to help people to grieve in a healthy way that identifies coping skills and support systems.

Grieving is a complex process. There is no right or wrong, ideal or non-ideal formulaic process to grieving. Grief is personal and varies from person to person. Allowing oneself to grief, while not loosing perspective on life is a difficult process and often requires assistance. This is where I can be of help. I will listen and provide guidance during the process of grief.

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.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Unfortunately, grief and loss are inevitable in life and sometimes we need guidance to process all that we’re feeling. My approach is to validate their loss and allow them to speak openly about it and then help them find healthy connections to their loved ones through memories. So much of the time when there is a loss, all people hear is “time heals all wounds.” That is rarely helpful in getting your life back on track because that implies you need to wait awhile before feeling better! Through our work, you will slowly learn to adjust to the new reality of your life without your loved one. This might require incorporating a new routine or even adopting a new sense of identity.

"Grief is a process, not a state" -Anne Grant. Grief and loss reach us all at some point in our life, and it will touch each person differently. It may come if the form of the death of loved family member or dear friend, or possibly the loss of an important relationship, a job, or a home. If you are experiencing grief and loss, I will provide a warm, supportive space as you begin to explore these important feelings.

Most patients I see realize that they have had losses and have suffered grief and yet are not sure exactly how to grieve or even if they should be grieving. "Shouldn't I be over this by now?", I hear many patients ask me. My answer to them and to you is that you aren't over it until you are over it, and even then the losses you have suffered are something that is a part of your life story. In our work together we create a place for you to mourn the losses that you have suffered, go through the stages and grief in a safe and supportive environment---for the only way to get through the other side of grief is to go thought it.

Nothing in life can be more difficult and painful than dealing with loss. When we love deeply we will also grieve deeply. When we don't know how to grieve well, prolong sadness and pain can remain. The therapeutic relationship is one place where a safe place can be found to open fully the pain of loss. I also offer divorce support and grief groups where a community of suffers can join in the journey of recovery.

The loss of loved one can bring a lot of mixed emotions ( anger, depression, sadness, desire, shock, guilt) for us. In personal therapy, in a safe environment, I will help you to process the negative events in order to move forward and start the healing process. I will practice positive communication, relaxation techniques and mindfulness during our session.

Grieving a loss can feel overwhelming and isolating. Whether you are grieving a recent loss or need to process a loss from your past, a safe space to freely express your thoughts and feelings can be healing. Children's response to loss is framed by their developmental capacities. For this reason, children may process a loss and then need to reprocess at a later stage of development. Therapy provides an opportunity for children and adolescents to process their loss in age appropriate ways.

Sometimes loss is unbearable. If you are suffering from a depression brought on by the death of a loved one or the loss of something else immensely important to you, I can help.

Psychotherapy can help you move the stages of grief at a pace that is comfortable for you.
