Within driving distance of Lithonia

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 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.

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.

Grief Counselor

Cindy McKee, LPC, NCC

Licensed Professional Counselor

Grief is a process and the length of grief will vary. Grief needs to be respected to be addressed and we live in a society that wants people to "get over it" quickly. People also want to get out of pain as quickly as possible. Grieving and mourning needs to be faced and supported. When people get stuck in issues such as anger or even guilt, they often need assistance with addressing these issues. Therapy is beneficial with these issues. Depending on how the person died, there may be some trauma accompanying grief as well. At times addressing the trauma may be necessary.

Licensed Psychologist

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.
