Like many professionals I am astounded that psychiatrists have added grief to their huge list of "disorders." We all grieve differently and at a different pace. Like a physical wound, grief cannot be rushed or "cured." The best we can do is to keep the emotional wound clean, dry, and freshly bandaged, then watch the passage of time work its miracle.

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: At some point, everyone experiences grief. It comes to us in many forms. Loss of a loved one is easily identifiable. Less apparent is the loss of other important things in our lives such as a job, a position or title in a company, an important relationship, etc. Usually, grief runs its natural course. However, many times we get stuck in grief. I am here to help you to work through grief.

People's reactions to death, divorce, illness, or loss as to how we've always known things to be, are as unique as the person experiencing them. It could be children or an individual grieving from divorce (marriage and family), grieving a break-up (romance, job, etc.), or grieving in substance abuse. I can guide the emotional intensity and knowledge that's in constant motion until you are happy with the way you have integrated the new information with the old.

The grieving process is intensely personal and intensely painful. It can feel as if the world has gone crazy and is spinning away without you. How do you make sense of anything in the face of such pain? The simplest tasks can feel impossible. Going to the grocery store, visiting the bank, walking the dog, and even making your morning coffee can trigger a heart-wrenching ache. With mindfulness and support, you CAN begin to heal and weave your loss into the tapestry of your life. You will laugh again, dream again, and love again.

Children and adolescents are profoundly impacted by grief and loss experiences. They may go through feelings of emptiness, confusion, anger, depression; they may lose interest in daily activities and experience sleep, appetite, energy level, and concentration changes. They can also become nervous and fretful and experience emotional and physical discomfort. The Therapy that Monica provides allows children to process emotion, talk about their feelings, and share their thoughts–offering ways to reorganize their experiences and find healthier coping modalities.

When individuals deal with a tremendous loss in their lives, their grief can lead them in a downward spiral of addiction to escape the pain of confronting the loss. Our team would ensure the grief is discussed and addressed before moving forward with any addictions issues. Afterwards our treatment plan would always be cognizant of this underlying issue in moving forward.
