Loss occurs in our lives in many forms. We struggle with unsolicited changes in our lives as well as changes that are more or less expected parts of our life's journey. Some are easier to adapt to, yet some are quite difficult. I work with clients who have lost loved ones, lost jobs, homes, health, beloved pets, many different things that have had special meaning in their lives. Not all grief is as devastating as some, but all grief is valid and worthy of respect. I provide a shoulder to lean on, an ear to listen, and a desire to help as my clients process grief and look for the next step in their lives.

Grief and Loss are some of the most real and difficult emotions and feelings to deal with and to cope and live with. Loss of a beloved family relationship, dear friend, mentor, as well as a beloved pet can cause a shock and vast loss that is seemingly impossible to overcome. Grief and loss therapy is very important to me and has been a major part of my decades of counseling. Grief and loss therapy is not a band aid to the pain. It is a process for working to create closure and a continued internal relationship which can still sustain life after loss. When relationships are important, grief and loss are a process of dealing with the depths of love and attachment which are key to being human.

At Home or Private Discreet Intensives

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.

Jesus said that we would have trouble in this world. But He also said for us to take heart, because He has overcome the world (John 16:33). It's not easy to find such heart in the midst of grief, but purpose can be found in our suffering, and God promises to bring good out of bad situations (Romans 8:28). If you are grieving, contact KCM for guidance and support.

Grief and loss is, unfortunately, a normal part of living. There is no single "correct" way to grieve: different cultures and even individuals from the same culture grieve differently. The only consistent feature is that grief takes time. The most effective thing anyone can do for someone grieving is to be there—to listen, to empathize, to walk along with the grief. There is no "fixing" grief. But counseling can help prevent normal grief from developing into major depression or other mental health conditions.
