I offer gentle support and comfort for my clients at a pace that they can tolerate. My clients have expressed to me that my ability to listen empathetically has allowed them the time to process the devastation and loss they’ve witnessed. People who’ve experienced death or divorce may feel angry, depressed, empty, and/or alone. I take time with them to respect these feelings, and do not prescribe ways they “should” be feeling. Grief is different for all, some experience it as a sudden event while others witness gradual decline of a loved one, both can still feel numb or raw. Perspective clients can call or email me to begin a dialogue; we determine then if proceeding is right for you.

What does one say when there is nothing to be said? Grief takes many forms and is born from various losses. There is "fresh" grief and "old" familiar grief. Grief counseling is a creative process for me.There is no right way to do it. Helping someone through their grief depends on how recent their loss was. The loss could be a lifetime partner, a friend, a pregnancy, a parent, a pet or the worst--a child. I start with encouraging my patients to scream, be silent, cry, or just talk. I believe they know themselves better than I ever will and they have inherent wisdom regarding what they need to do in order to wade through their grief. I provide a place and a person (me) to ease the way.

Grief and Loss is one of the most difficult things you are probably experiencing. Our approach is to help you process what is going on and how you can move forward. This process is individualized and we will work together each step of the way. There is no limit on grief so if you have heard "Get over it" or "Why is it taking you so long to get past this", you know you are talking to the wrong people about your feeling. You need someone who understand and can help you process these feelings, not someone who is going to make you feel shameful about your feelings. It is important to understand you do not need to do this alone.

Grief is an individualized internal experience.There is no right way or right amount of time to grieve. Dialoguing about life and death, disappointments and future opportunities allows each person the space to grieve and also recreate their lives from this moment on. In my 30+ years of clinical practice, I assist my clients as they experience the emotional pain and the full recognition of their loss. I support them as they build the emotional resilience to overcome their grief, turning their energy into future opportunities.

Grief is a complex process. While it may feel lonely, you do not have to go through this process without someone by your side. When dealing with grief and loss concerns, I focus on the thoughts and emotions that are being brought up. Healing indeed takes time, but seeking therapy to cope with grief can greatly help the process. Assessing parts of the process such as anger, denial and bargaining are often part of the treatment plan for grief and loss.

My approach to grief and loss therapy begins with understanding each client's unique experience of loss. I help clients accept their loss and experience its sadness. We then explore their range of feelings, including anger, denial, guilt, loneliness, and depression and develop a customized treatment plan to help them return to optimal functioning.

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 experienced when we lose someone significant in our lives. Grief and loss can also be experienced when a special relationship ends, when a hope or dream is dashed or when we find ourselves in a situation we cannot cope with. Each of us has a different way of coping, and some appear to do better than others. So how do we know if we need help? Are there days you really struggle? Is it affecting your relationship with others?. Have you lost zeal for life? Do you find you can't talk to people you know about your pain? I will listen. With compassion and support I will help you find your inner strength to endure and grow from your sadness.

I incorporate Dr. Elizabeth Kubler-Ross's stages of Grief Therapy.Dr. Ross believes that we must go through denial, anger and acceptance I also believe in the near death experiences of many patients who share experiences in their after life or what happens when you die. Believing this life is only the beginning ,I incorporate a religious perspective with the patients faith and writings into therapy. I am of the belief that all faiths are from one and the same God.

You don't have to grieve alone. Together we will process the loss(es) and help you come to a place of peace so that you can move forward.
