Grief Counselor

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

Chicago, Illinois

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.

Katie Bogacki, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

4801 W. Peterson Ave., Ste. 308 , Chicago , Illinois

Throughout our lives, we all experience grief and loss. Sometimes these occasions are more easily experienced than others. It is helpful to have someone for support, to hear you out on all of the emotions that are going on with the grief and loss. No two people will experience grief and loss the same, and each of us will have different ways and timelines to cope. Particularly in the area of fertility, grief and loss can be recurrent and persistent. I will utilize mindfulness strategies as well as offer support in guiding you through your experiences.

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor / Therapist

3166 N. Lincoln Ave, Suite 207, Chicago, Illinois

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.

Grief Counselor

Philip Kolba, MA

Psychotherapist

Chicago, Illinois

Grief and loss is, unfortunately, a normal part of living. There is no single "correct" way to grieve: different cultures and even individuals from the same culture grieve differently. The only consistent feature is that grief takes time. The most effective thing anyone can do for someone grieving is to be there—to listen, to empathize, to walk along with the grief. There is no "fixing" grief. But counseling can help prevent normal grief from developing into major depression or other mental health conditions.

Grief Counselor

Melissa Sanchez, LCPC, BC-DMT

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, Board Certified Dance/Movement Therapist

155 N. Michigan Avenue, Suite 603, Chicago, Illinois

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.

Times of grief are some of the most painful experiences we have as human beings. But these times are also wonderful in the sense that this is part of our humanity - it's painful because of our ability and capacity to love. With love comes loss - and with loss comes great emotional pain. But the grief journey can also be a time of amazing reflection, growth, and renewal. Sometimes grief is fresh and sometimes grief is deep-seated from events long past. Either way, learning to not fear your grief but to be able to sit with it and use it as a tool to transform yourself is a powerful benefit of this great emotional pain.

Grief Counselor

Louise Dimiceli-Mitran, MA, MT-BC, FAMI

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC)

2656 W. Montrose Avenue, Chicago, Illinois

Losing someone you love, a job or something important to you is a life-changing event. Your stories and feelings need to be shared and heard. Some have a tendency to simply shut down when dealing with such grief. Guided imagery, music and other nonverbal techniques can help you begin to grieve the loss, acknowledge the gifts you have received from that person or situation and begin the readjustment to move gently forward. Your experience of the world is altered and it takes time to find out who you are now, what you need and what you want. We will explore how to do that in a way that's right for you.

Grief Counselor

James McClymonds, Psy.D., HSPP

While everyone grieves in their own way and in their own time, losing a loved one feels devastating. Furthermore, grief can be complicated by other conditions such as depression and level of dependence on the departed. The good news is that therapy is a very effective way to manage grief symptoms and cope with stressors from the loss. When you see me for grief & loss therapy, we will discuss how the grief is impacting your life and create a plan together to accelerate the healing process without losing any healthy emotional connections with the deceased. Give me a call today for a free consultation and we can put together a preliminary plan over the telephone.
