Loss and grief are painful, difficult, yet normal experiences we all go through as human beings, whether they be the death of a loved one, the end of a relationship or the loss of a dream. Sometimes loss can bring up unresolved concerns from our past, which complicates matters. If you want an experienced person to listen, feel stuck in the grieving process or worry that you have become a burden to friends and family, I can accompany you and help you move through the grieving process. By appreciating and mourning what you have lost, you become more free to move on with your life, and can emerge more wise and more open to joy.

I have taught and practiced grief counseling for over 24 years. One thing I observed early on is that people who share their grief with others progress through the stages of grief and get much relief, while those who try to grieve on their own seem to just stay locked into the early stages of suffering for many years. I offer compassionate and loving support through the process. Loving, gentle support can make all the difference.

"Why can't I seem to shake this grief & loss like other people can?" you ask yourself. Chances are you have other unresolved losses that are being triggered. When you come to me, I will do an assessment, identify the unresolved losses and use Lifespan Integration or EMDR to help you get relief. On average my clients see me 10-12 sessions and are able to function again.

Losing a loved one, whether through unexpected or anticipated circumstances, is always traumatic and can be one of the most stressful events in a person’s life. Although grieving is a natural human reaction to a loss it can be overwhelming. In therapy I provide a safe place were we can process those feelings together and explore which meaning the loss you experienced will receive in your life.

Grief and loss issues can stem from recent losses, or ones from decades past. They can feel overwhelming to deal with because of the intensity of emotion. However, having a safe environment to work through these issues at a pace that you are comfortable with is the best way to begin that journey. With grief, as with so many other things in life, the only way around the feelings are through them. I have experience working with individual and leading grief groups. I understand how grief manifests differently for different people, and will help you on your journey of healing. Please call me to discuss further and to determine if you'd like to schedule an appointment.

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.

During times of grief and loss one needs a support network to help them get through the pain and suffering of the loss of a loved one. People often isolate instead, for fear perhaps of burdening others, or upsetting others more by talking about it, or because they feel others won't relate or understand their pain. As a result, they find themselves alone with their feelings at a time when they most need support. Grief counseling and support can help you better understand your personal grieving process while providing a safe place to heal.

At some stage the bereaved move to a position of acceptance at which point, life begins to feel more normal again. Grief counseling helps process the feelings of loss associated with grief. If you are experiencing grief or loss, counseling can help you process it in a more healthy way. As a bereavement counselor, I offer you a space to explore your feelings in confidential and safe space. I can help you through the grieving process to process the painful emotions, to accept the loss, to make relevant adjustments and to help discover productive coping mechanisms.

Grief and loss is often complicated by a painful, irrational belief that you could have done something different to prevent it. Using EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing), clients can experience relief from the tremendous burden they carry of what they should have/could have/ought to have done differently. Through the processing of thoughts, feelings, sensations, and memories, clients feel a greater sense of relief and acceptance.

Grief is a natural response to loss and it takes many forms. Everyone grieves differently and contrary to popular belief, there is no set amount of time grief is "supposed to last." I acknowledge a client's unique response to grief in a sensitive and compassionate way while letting him/her know that his/her response is normal. I help clients recognize and understand the wide range of feelings that come with loss. I assist clients in developing healthy coping strategies based on their innate strengths.

Experiencing a significant loss in one's life can be an overwhelming and confusing time. I provide a warm and inviting environment so each person can feel comfortable in talking about and making sense of the different emotions and thoughts one may have. By using a compassionate and supportive approach, I help the person better understand the different phases of grief and learn effective ways to manage feelings of sadness and discomfort.

The experience of loss and grief is fundamental to the human condition. Often, the experience of loss and the ensuing grief are some of the most intense and painful emotional experiences we ever have. It is important to have appropriate and understanding support during the most acute phase of this process. My approach to helping my clients through the grieving process is to provide a a solid and steady presence without ever pressuring either subtly or overtly to "get over" the loss. Anger is a core component of the process and needs to be fully acknowledged before one can move forward in a meaningful way. Please call or email for further information.
