Losing someone you love is one of the biggest challenges in life, especially if it was unexpected. There can be trauma associated with the loss that can be disturbing. My approach to grief and loss is to allow expression of all the feelings involved in losing a loved one. It can be a confusing time with a mixture of shock, sadness, anger, fear, and hopelessness. Finding ways to express unresolved feelings through talking and letter writing can be helpful. What I also offer that is unique are mind/body therapies such as EMDR that help process and release distressing or stuck feelings. You can feel more at peace and accepting with the help of these techniques.

When you suffer the loss of a loved one, you certainly will experience great sorrow. But it is also possible that you may experience symptoms similar to clinical depression. It is normal for these symptoms to last for days. But if they continue at a significant level for a week or more, you may need extra support. Grief counseling can be of benefit. I will help you move through the grief process in a constructive and purposeful way. We will engage you in specific interventions that honor your loss, and help you find the meaning in the painful reality you experience. Taking time for purposeful grieving, you learn to re-engage in your normal life, minimizing the risk of clinical depression.

Sooner or later you will lose someone you love or something that is important to you. It happens to all of us and it’s easy to become overwhelmed and lose perspective in such times. There is a process that guides you through grief and brings you to the other side whole. I offer to guide you through the process at your pace and in your way so you will have your time to grieve with comfort and perspective and emerge stronger having endured the experience.

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.

Grief and loss are a part of life yet can feel overwhelming! If you are suffering from illness, the death of a loved one, loss of a job or relationship, or going through life transitions, therapy can assist in your healing. Grief can be isolating. Individuals, couples, and families can learn to stay connected rather than be torn apart during these difficult times. Learning to cope with your situation in an accepting atmosphere can help you develop a renewed sense of hope and renewed connection, first to yourself and then to significant others. You do not need to go through your pain alone!

All loss is grief. Grief is a normal response to loosing anything: a loved one, a home, a job, a relationship. Grief is a journey. Some grief can be more complicated and more difficult journey to walk through alone. Grief is as unique to each person as is their they are. No two people will grieve the same, nor should they. Thus, my therapeutic approach to grief therapy is uniquely patterned to the individual and their personal experience. There are a variety of therapeutic approaches that can be used. I will find what works best for you.

Grief and loss is a painful and individual experience. Individuals express and experience bereavement in their own unique way. Grief work is beneficial to individuals dealing with bereavement because it provides one with the opportunity to process the loss, release painful emotions, develop constructive coping mechanisms and reinvest one's emotional energy in the present. Grief work also allows one to develop a new connection to the loss and provides one with a unique opportunity for personal growth.

The loss of a loved one, a relationship, or even a job can leave you wondering how to cope. While grief is a normal part of loss, it can sometimes be hard to see a way to the other side of grief on your own. Grief is a journey you are on, not a place you have to stay. I can help you find ways to honor the memories while also finding hope again for the future.

The experience of grief and loss, while expected at various life stages, can result in physical pain, and the emergence of symptoms that lead to experiencing a slow downward spiral in overall wellbeing, and perhaps desire to withdrawal from personal and professional commitments. Many clients seek compassionate and sensitive guidance to navigate through the ups and downs of any number of losses, ranging from diminishing health, to ending a relationship, or other life transition. Together, clients and I develop a transformative plan to stabilize, heal, gain insight and to enhance their proficiency to improve the strength needed to reconstitute their skills and hopes for today and the future.
