Everyone experiences grief and loss differently and their journey is equally different. By providing a safe, compassionate environment, we would explore the nature of your grief and loss, assess the impact on you and your life, and develop ways to improve your daily functioning. The process is one of honoring what has come to be and learning to move through feelings and adjust to this new circumstance. I utilize a combination of psychotherapy and cognitive-behavioral strategies.

Loss is a most difficult event in any person's life and it can paralyze to the point of complete isolation and inactivity. The grieving process can be a torturous one and one that robs a person of their life force. The process of grieving must be respected as a powerful one that resolves at its own pace. The therapist cannot force this process, but rather joins with the client in the journey of recovery.

I believe that work plays a large role in how we perceive ourselves and others around us. The stages of change can generally apply to not only the loss of a loved one, but the loss of work, loss of a function, a child's innocence, and a multitude of other factors that greatly inhibit people from moving on in their lives. It's important to find the meaning through suffering and understand that we all have the freedom to make -sometimes undesirable- choices in our lives

As a psychologist, I can give people the tools to deal with grief and loss, as well as to discuss the topic in ways geared toward working through the loss. Grief and loss are both issues that present themselves during the time of loss, but sometimes unresolved grief leads to changes in a person's life years or even decades later. I especially encourage people dealing with the latter to call me. Working through a distant loss can be extremely powerful. And understanding how it still affects you can feel good, as well as to open doors that were previously closed in life.

People experience grief and loss from many things... the illness of a loved one, a death, the loss of one's health, wealth, or job. People move to different parts of the country and experience deep loss because of this. People often overlook chronic loss, which can be one of the worst types of loss. This is one has an ongoing experience of loss, like waiting for a loved one to die, or expecting to lose your home at any time. Talking about these feelings and coming to understand yourself int erms of the losses can make them easier to live with. In addition, by using Internal Family Systems Therapy, sometimes the intensity of the pain can be lessened, even if the loss cannot be changed.

I remember many years ago learning in graduate school about a technique for rapidly helping people to deal with the pain of loss while retaining the memory of their loved one. To this day I remember the specifics of how to help people w/this therapeutic approach. I also utilize individual and family therapy models to help grieving people. Please do not hesitate to contact me for therapy or a referral.

You never "get over" the loss of a loved one. But I can help you move through your grief and sadness to create a "new normal" so you can feel happiness again. It's hard... I know from my own losses. So we'll take whatever time you need. There is no one path through grief. Everyone's process is different. I'll support you along the path that's best for you as you honor your loved one and, little by little, bring joy back into your heart.

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.
