Grieving cannot be done alone. All you can do by yourself is be sad and alone. This is not healing. Grieving is a process that has a beginning and an end and must include one other person who is understanding and compassionate. If you are tired of feeling like no one understands your loss on an emotional level, then set up an appointment with Thomas Schmierer, Catholic Therapist, LMFT today.

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 is a very real and painful experience with many dimensions, and it has no time limit. Well-meaning loved ones may not understand the extent of your grief and pain. Mourning is a process that is unique and personal. Not everyone grieves in the same way nor does everyone require the same amount of time to work through their grief. Grief can be complicated by the length of the relationship with the person who died, the nature of that relationship, any traumatic components to the loss, multiple losses, and the strength of your remaining support system. If your grief feels overwhelming or your depression lasting, contact me for the support you need to heal and find your way forward.

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.

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.

People experience many different kinds of grief and loss, from the death of a friend or family member (including pets) to loosing a job or one's health. Therapy for grief and loss can help you through a very difficult and painful transition. Grief is a normal reaction to loss, and allowing yourself to spend time grieving instead of pushing down the feelings and emotions that ought to be expressed can help you to manage through this time in the best way possible. I provide a safe and caring place and a supportive therapeutic relationship as you work through your experience and manage the wide range of emotions you may feel.

Loss happens and that pain can feel unbearable. From birth we form attachments-homes, jobs, friends, families-that can end. I help clients express, not "stuff", feelings, learn "aspects" of normal grieving-anger and shock are expectable, guilt is likely inappropriate and puts us at risk of getting "stuck", process means we don't do one "stage", finish with it, and move on to the next. Healing from loss is a very individual experience.

The experience of losing someone or something that we love can be devastating. We need to allow ourselves to feel the pain - which can open us to true healing and recovery. Sometimes, however, we cannot see our way out. Therapy can help you with that process so that you can move forward - not denying the loss - but growing through the pain. Suffering through the loss of a loved one can also bring clarity to one's priorities in life. Our relationships are primary. Love is really all there is.

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.

I have experience working with individuals, children, and families as they navigate life after the death of a loved one. As a counselor at San Diego Hospice, I came to understand that grief can be a lonely and sometimes complicated process. At times the loss does not seem real, it can be scary and overwhelming to feel the pain it brings, and finding ways to "move on" can be daunting. I would be honored to assist you in this journey and help guide the way towards embracing life again.

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.
