Grief and loss is a very personal experience . Losing soneone really hurts and coping with the loss can be a very difficult process. Sometimes friends and or family members do not know what to say or do. Having a place where one can safely express thier feelings and thoughts freely can be helpful. Grieving is a process and a very personal one in nature.

Grief counseling helps people cope with grief and mourning following the loss of a loved one or due to major life changes that trigger feelings of grief (i.e. job loss or divorce). It provides a space for individuals to work through and process the complex emotions surrounding loss. Healthy grieving results in remembering the loss with a newfound sense of peace, rather than searing pain.

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.

Grieving is a normal human reaction to the loss we experience in our lives. Loss can be experienced through death of a loved one, a change in lifestyle, the end of a relationship, the decision to stop an addiction and even retirement. The process of grieving is a very unique process with no particular time amount or level of intensity easily predicted. The extremely private nature of experiencing grief can make it quite challenging and having a confidential, supportive and kind therapist to help you through that process can be very helpful. I can help you in your healing process to find new meaning to your life and discover a way to enjoy your memories without remorse.

Dealing with grief is about realizing the impact someone has had on your life and how you can use this experience to honor them. When people heal from the sadness they reach a place of newness. There really aren't five stages of grief as we once thought but there is a process with alternating phases. Each person has their own "theory" about grief and once they discover what it is, they are better able to accept and move through the process.

The key areas of grief and loss is learning to create what is known as a "new normal". This new normal can be created after a death, loss of job or even the loss of a relationship like divorce. Being able to understand the grief steps and what to expect brings hope to individuals and families who may have just had what they once new as normal completely change sometimes overnight.

I like to help the person work through grief and loss by helping them connect with their sorrow and bring loving closure to those relationships. This may include role playing and also narrative writing allowing them to express their feelings, memories, regrets, etc. Often we may create an experience where they can say goodbye and begin to let go and move on.

Grief and loss is one of my strength areas where I have lots of experience and expertise. Emphasis will be placed on the emotional component and reframing of the loss so that you can move on and return to full functional living engaging in life again. The work of Katherin Kubler-Ross will be utilized as a framework of the grief and loss process recognizing specific steps that one goes through as the loss is resolved. Learning how to" let go" becomes essential in order for new life to be obtained. Done properly, the individual comes out more resilient and having better coping skills to life a fulfilling life. I would be honored to help you go through "the process" and find new life.

Grief & loss can be a very difficult part of life. The passing of a loved one or friend, the loss of a job or relationship, moving from one place to another and grieving all that we once knew are life transitions that are grief/loss issues that we need to heal from in order to move forward in our lives. I listen to people when they come and tell their stories of grief & loss & how they are affected & what it all means to them. I help them understand that grief is processed in different stages & it takes time to experience each stage of the grief/loss cycle. I help people to come to acceptance for the loss & help them move forward in their lives as best they can after loss has occurred.

I work with people who have been injured, diagnosed with serious illness, and who have lost loved ones. I also work with the person's familiy.
