When grief and loss have gone on much longer than is typical, it often indicates there is some unacknowledged idea or feeling that has been preventing the person from grieving fully and they thus feel stuck. Though hard to bear, grief and loss are a natural and necessary part of life. Given a space in which to share one's pains and doubts, a client can go through his or her emotions and begin the healing process. This often results in greater understanding and a sense of relief.

Loss is inescapable in life. Grief is the natural response to the loss we experience. Quite often our losses occur “too early” or are “too severe” or are “too many” at once to process healthily. Loss that seems impossible to “get over” along with more loss close behind can become a deep spiral downward. This feels overwhelming & reactions can begin to have a life of their own. My therapeutic care, coupled with my own personal understanding through loss, I assist clients in safe & timely ways to face these sometimes debilitating experiences. Using trauma reduction therapies (EMDR and RRT) clients are helped to gain breathing room and a healthy perspective usually within 1 to 3 sessions.

Grief counseling helps people cope with grief and mourning following the loss of a loved one or due to major life changes that trigger feelings of grief (i.e. job loss or divorce). It provides a space for individuals to work through and process the complex emotions surrounding loss. Healthy grieving results in remembering the loss with a newfound sense of peace, rather than searing pain.

I have a BA in Religious Studies and use this knowledge to enhance healing and recovery from loss. Using a Christian approach with deep relaxation and guided spiritual visualization you can find reason and meaning in living your life fully again. You will have the added benefit of a brain health assessment to target how your brain is responding to grief. Then we target our holistic approach to treatment,. Moving through the pain of loss takes time but you can find meaning and purpose in moving forward. Whether your loss was expected or unexpected these specialized approaches can assist you through your pain to living a full life again.

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.

My approach to grief is to get through it, one must embrace it. Grief is not an event that at a particular time it will be just stop. Grief is like an ocean with waves of despair to utter calmness depending where their pendulum of grief is swinging. Clients will learn coping skills to deal with the symptoms the person is experiencing in their loss. The client will learn that although going thru the grief is slower and usually more painful, when he/she get to the other side, their grief does not have to haunt them in their future.
