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 belief is that grief is a normal response to loss. Initially, it can be very intense and seemingly constant. Then it starts to subside and we experience waves of grief intermingled with our more typical daily experiences. However, sometimes the intensity remains. Rather than grief seeming to move, we seem stuck in the depth of pain. By using a combination of conventional talk therapy along with Emotional Freedom Technique (Energy Psychology), I can help you to unblock the stuck feelings and begin to see the joy in life again.

Dr. Smith's approach to Grief and loss is not to place anyone in a box but understand the grieving process from the clients perspective. It is with great concern that I take care of my patient's and show empathy in it's highest regard for those who are dealing with the loss of a love one. Common reasons for seeking therapy include difficulty adjusting to life changes and transitions, coping with traumatic life experiences, and difficulty managing feelings, such as depression, stress, anxiety and anger. Other common issues include dissatisfaction in significant relationships, parenting challenge’s, and issues related to body image and unhealthy eating patterns.

We have all experience loss in one way or another. Whether it be loss of a loved one, career, or dream, we can all identify with the heartbreak that comes from moving on. Often people say "time heals all wounds," and partly that is true, however time itself isn't magic. Time allows us space to be able to process and grieve. When the loss is overwhelming, people often get stuck in the grief. We work with clients to help them get unstuck, honor the loss, heal the wound, and when they are ready - dream new dreams. You do not have to be alone in this grieving process. Let us walk with you through this difficult time.

Are you experiencing the heartbreak of having a miscarriage? Are you and your spouse struggling with infertility and losing hope? You don't have to suffer through your painful experiences of loss alone. Being unable to conceive, or losing a child before or after birth, is one of the more heartbreaking, earth shattering things in life. The pain that you experience and the feelings and thoughts of failure can be overwhelming and it may feel as though life won't go on. I would be honored to walk with you on this journey of grief to a place of acceptance and healing.

I have advanced training and experience in helping people deal with traumatic loss and grief including loss through suicide, accident or needing to put a pet to sleep. My approach helps you reduce disturbing images and bad dreams related to the loss, reduce feelings of guilt, reduce a sense of hopelessness about your future, and reconnect to happy images and memories of the person or pet you lost. I have also helped people with job loss and relationship endings. I also incorporate a six step model for accommodating loss and EMDR Therapy to help reduce the pain of the grief process.

Grief and loss are deep and ongoing emotional processes. There are commonalities that do exist for many of us such as periods of loneliness, despair, and just plain depression. But for each individual the experience of grief and loss are unique. Helping clients learn to honor their own process, validate it, and give their selves the space and time to express their grief and loss is what I do. Even though our grief and loss will usually be with us for our lifetime, we can learn to live with our sadness and pain and in our own time, still live a healthy, wonderful and thriving life.

Grieving is a natural and necessary response to a loss. When we lose a loved one we must go through the process of grieving to heal from that loss and to be able to fully engage in life again. Sometimes the loss we experience does not come in the form of losing a person, but of losing a job, a career, a relationship, or a dream, for example. Whatever the type of loss we experience, we need to find ways of adjusting to it. Therapy can help people to process their feelings and navigate the waters of grief and loss, and assist them with rebuilding their lives.

Understanding that what you are experiencing in your grief is normal can be an important part in healing. Friends and family may not know what to say, and in their desire to see you stop hurting, they may tell you that it's time to get over it and move on. With me, you will find that wherever you are in your grief process is accepted. While I will help you process your feelings so you may heal, I will not hurry you along faster than you are ready to go. I will never have the expectation that you will "get over" your loved one. Instead, I will help you to redefine your life without that person in it so that you can experience joy again.

It may be hard for you to feel optimistic about the future right now. If you've lost a spouse, child, family member or friend, you've probably found that there are not many people who understand the deep hurt you feel. The finality of death is hard to accept, and that's what a grief session is about, getting you to accept that reality so that you can go on with your life. We are here to help you to understand that you aren't alone and that others have been on your same path.

Some budgeting needed

While counseling can certainly be an expense for individuals and families in Atlanta, with proper budgeting, it is entirely do-able and the risk/reward is worth it. For some families, it may be difficult to sustain a commitment to therapy without proper insurance coverage. If this is you, ask your therapist about low cost options as practitoners in and around Atlanta may have flexibility or sliding scales. Low cost counseling and affordable therapy are also sometimes offered by listed city and university level clinics, check with your local Atlanta public health department.
