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.

My approach to grief counseling is to listen with an open heart and an open ear while holding a space where you can feel safe to share your unique grief story. In sharing your story you begin to process your grief, and ultimately you learn to integrate the loss into your life in a way that feels appropriate and right for you. My approach to this process is always with deep compassion and without judgment.

Grief is a normal and natural reaction to a loss of any kind; death, divorce, faith or career. Regardless of the reason why, the resulting emotions are very powerful and often conflicting. My approach to grief and loss is to use cognitive behavioral approaches to process the emotions and help my client reclaim control over them. Often clients get stuck in trying to find a logical answer to the "why" instead of processing the emotional effect on their life. I can help with the process.

You've heard "time heals all wounds", but that doesn't help you much now. You've told yourself to "get over it", but you can't. Trite phrases seldom help the depression and anxiety that accompanies significant grief and loss. You don't have to walk this painful journey alone. I have helped many persons work through the loss of a loved one(s) and the losses of material possessions, jobs, identity and life changes, painful parenting, divorce an other, broken relationships. Call, and let me help you, as well. More info on grief and loss may be found at: www.judykoehlertherapist.com.

"Blessed are those who mourn for they will be comforted." The pain of losing someone never quite fully goes away, but my hope is that you will benefit from being comforted as you grieve the loss of someone close to you. Grief has an important place in life and as we walk through this difficult time together you'll begin to make sense of the pain that may be overwhelming you. However, you may also learn some important truths about life, purpose and meaning.

Unbelief, shock, anger… These are some of the things we experience when we undergo major losses in our lives. The death of someone close, loss of relationship or marriage, loss of job, retirement—situations such as these may chop our emotional legs right out from under us. Understanding how this process works (the stages through which one tends to pass as a part of the process) can greatly alleviate the stress and suffering that can otherwise be associated with it. Grief must be shared; having an understanding and supportive person present to coach you through such times can of immense value.

Grief can take many forms with one of them being grieving a relationship. One of the ways Amy helps her clients is to work on forgiving themselves for what feels like a weakness and to uncover their hidden strength. The emotional and physical symptoms of grief after a breakup can be so intense that the body and psyche can overwhelm the logical brain to create a way of functioning that appears necessary for survival, even though it might be self-destructive.
