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 is real and a process we go through. There are stages and each comes with its unique emotions and thoughts. I, personally, have experienced loss in a variety of ways and worked with many who have experienced many different kinds of loss. I meet people where they are at the time we get together. I do not pressure people to move, but sit with them and empathize. There is grace and no expectations. However, the goal is to progress through the stages and live life in the present. We don't forget the loss, but it no longer is reeking havoc in our daily experiences.

Although at some time we all experience loss and the grief that follows, there are few life experiences that are lonelier. Summer can gently walk with you through your experience of grief, and help you process your sadness and pain as you move through this difficult time. Although grief and depression are distinct, at times they feel the same, and sometimes loss can precipitate depression. If you feel that you are alone and stuck in your grief, it's probably time to ask for help.

Grief is a psychological reaction to loss. Losses come in many different forms, for example loss of a loved one, being severely injured in an accident, being diagnosed with a debilitating illness, breakup of a marital relationship, postpartum depression and experiences such as grieving over the loss of a job. During the course of my career I headed up the Rehabilitation Psychology Services in one of the largest hospitals in the U.S. where I had the opportunity to work with grief reactions in people experiencing illnesses and injuries ranging from cancer to strokes to severe mental illness and spinal cord injury.

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.

Grief is a natural response to loss. A loss of any magnitude can trigger grief--from losing a loved one to losing a job, from ending a relationship to a significant financial loss. Grieving poorly can lead to unresolved and unprocessed pain that lasts a lifetime. On the other hand, grieving well is one of the most important skills in life and can lead to lasting healing and wholeness. Call Sarah for an appointment (770) 548-3034.

When a beloved person or pet dies, our hearts hurt, sometimes very badly. The loss and grief can be so deep we think we won't ever get over it. Depression, anger, and confusion are common symptoms. We're more vulnerable to getting sick because intense emotions can wreak havoc with our immune systems. You don't have to go through this alone. I'm a safe person with whom to feel all your emotions, even the ones you think you shouldn't have. I won't tell you "just get over it." I'll show you how to resolve the grief as quickly as possible, all the while, honoring your own process and your own timing. You can learn to feel whole 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. Contact Grey Matters International, Inc now at kevin@kevinflemingphd.com or 877-606-6161.

Grief is the body and spirit's response to significant loss. Grief is involuntary and necessary. Grief is natural and the only way to heal the body and spirit is to go through it. Suppressing, denying, minimizing and avoiding the process that is grief will be rejected by the body and spirit. Grief is not a linear process and is unique to each person. I help by teaching ways to cope that will reduce the negative symptoms of grief, such as the difficulty with focus, concentration and memory, fatigue, and sadness, while respecting and honoring your process.

Most of us will experience loss at some point in our lives. Grief is a reaction to any form of loss and this can include death, job loss, divorce, and changes in one’s abilities. Bereavement is a type of grief involving the death of a loved one. Both experiences can encompass a wide range of feelings from sadness to anger. Each one of us processes loss in a unique way depending on our upbringing, beliefs, religious or spiritual background, and our relationship to what was lost. My approach to grief and loss respects your unique process and helps you to process and move on.

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.
