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.

Grief. If you're looking here, I am guessing you are going through something very tough. I'm so sorry for your loss. Grief is like waves of the ocean, sometimes big, sometimes small and many times unexpected like in the chip aisle at the grocery store. I have worked with many types of grief including divorce, cancer diagnosis, sexual abuse survivor, and several others. Many times friends, family, or a pastor are just the ticket to help a healing heart. Other times it is helpful to have a professional walk with you through these losses, feel more normal about your feelings, and come to gradual healing through just being together. Reach out today, you don't have to be alone!

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.

Losing a loved one is probably one of the most difficult challenges we can endure. Our entire perspective on life can change in an instant. Your greif experience is unique because only you know the nuances of your relationship to the person you lost. This is a time to be gentle with yourself as you move through the stages of grief but also to make healthy choices for yourself, which is not always easy to do on your own. I'd be honored to walk with you through this painful time as you explore your thoughts and feelings and learn to embrace life without your loved one.

You may feel like no amount of talking could possibly help you overcome the sadness you feel right now. What you may not realize is that therapy can be incredibly effective in helping you manage the difficult and complicated feelings commonly accompanying the loss of a loved one. Everything you are feeling is normal! In therapy, you'll learn tools to help manage intensely painful emotions while honoring the memory of your loved one(s). While therapy cannot entirely take the pain away, it can certainly take the edge off so you can begin to function again. With the help of therapy, you'll begin to experience more and more periods of relief and in time, even begin to feel joy again.

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.

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.

Loss is something that can shake anyone to their core. Everyone experiences loss differently and there is no one way to grieve. My goal with working with clients dealing with grief and loss issues is to help them process the pain of the loss while still being able to access the love and memory of the departed. I also have experience treating any symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder that are associated with the loss.

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.

Healing in the grief process looks different for everyone and I can provide a space for you to feel and share what you need to. I will provide support and empathetic listening to remind you that you are not alone during this difficult time. We can also identify other ways to connect with others and feel supported within your friends and family as well. Although nothing can fix a loss, therapy can be a powerful tool in the process to experience some relief and begin to heal.
