I have experience working with clients who are going through the grieving process in regard to the loss of a relationship. This pertains to a break up with a significant other, accepting that a parent is unable to fulfill an ideal role we have in our minds, etc. These losses can be just as traumatic as the death of a loved one, and most clients experience Kubler-Ross' Stages of Grief.

Athough grief is often intense and may feel like depression, it normally eases over time. When you become stuck in deep sadness, regret, and an inability to move on or when there was a trauma associated with the death, I can help you resolve the grief and find peace. I use gentle compassionate strategies to support your acceptance and return to a more satisfying life. You will learn to let go, to resolve regrets, and to enjoy life again.

Whether we are wounded by the loss of loved ones, opportunities or even our health, we can feel so alone as life around us seems to move on while we feel forever changed. My goal is to provide a space to grieve and mourn what was lost, helping people adjust and find hope for the future. Therapy provides time and space to share memories, regrets, fears and other emotions related to grief in a non-judgmental, compassionate arena.

Grief is not a disorder. You don't need to be cured. You need to be able to talk to someone. Every study shows that talking about your pain is crucial to letting go. If you have been suffering pain from a loss longer than you think is good for you, there may be something keeping you stuck. We can work that out. Experiencing your grief is not easy; it is necessary.

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.

Loss and the resulting grief are a natural part of life. We never know what will bring the grieving process into our experience, whether it be the loss of a loved one, a job, a child, a way of life or feeling as if we are losing our sense of identity. My approach to grief is one rooted in compassion and helping each person find their own sense of self-compassion for the process of acceptance and moving forward with a renewed sense of spirit. We will always remember the loss but it is important to travel through it without allowing grief to hold our hearts down. I will help you mindfully walk through the sadness and anger that so often accompanies loss.

Lose can be painful. Losing someone or something you love or care deeply about never arrives in our lives at a good time. During our periods of loss we may experience all kinds of difficult emotions and it may feel like the pain and sadness each of us experience may never end. Anger, anxiety or depression may be overwhelming. These reactions to a significant loss are normal. As your counselor, we will journey with you during this time of grief. We will not tell you the right or wrong way to grieve, but we can guide you with healthy ways to cope with the pain that, in time, can renew you and permit you to move on. Rather than tolerating your loss we will assist you in accepting the loss. As you k....

Grief creates shifts in our lives that can leave us temporarily feeling alone, lost and unsteady. Studies show that individuals that seek support during this difficult season, can actually shorten the grief period, and are less likely to experience "complicated grief". It would be my honor to journey with you during this difficult season. I look forward to hearing from you.
