A loss is guaranteed in each person's life, hence, every individual will succumb to grief at some point of their life. Each individual grieve in their own way. Based on my clinical and personal experience, the depth of the grieving often center around the emotional attachment to the item or individual lost. Grief should not be timed, however, each year the pain of the loss lessons but never completely dissipate. At Victoria Counseling, you will receive grief therapy that is individualized to you taking into account your values and belief system.

I support clients in grief work by validating their experiences, sharing their pain, normalizing and educating them about the stages and transitions after loss and helping them re-center themselves in their lives to find purpose and meaning. Clients need compassion and a witness to share the story of the loss and often struggle to redefine their lives without the person who has died. I help them to work on that redefinition as they shift between and among the stages of loss.

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.

Did you know that that grief and loss can include more than death and dying? Many people suffer the same emotions with a break up, a job loss, physical illness, death of a pet, a lost promotion or raise and for many other reasons. Did you know that every individual grieves in their own way and in their own time? Whatever your loss, what ever you feel, please know that it's okay to feel the way you do even when others may tell you differently. Melissa can assist you in navigating the painful task of grief and loss through exploring your emotions (Positive and negative) and finding new ways of coping with your loss and building resiliency.

The overwhelming sadness of loss comes in all shapes and sizes, whether you've ended a job or a relationship, left your childhood home or graduated college, experienced the death of family members or a yearned for opportunity. My treatment approach to grief helps clients process the shock, come to terms with the pain, work through residual anger or anxiety, accept the new reality and adjust to a new status, and transform loneliness or regret. If you have experienced an unanticipated traumatic loss of a loved one, and it's bringing up emotions and memories that are difficult to be with, I can provide the therapeutic process that can help you find the peace you seek inside yourself.

All individuals, if they live enough years, experience the death of a significant other. However, not all bereavement occurs due to a loss from death, yet the emotional pain can be as severe if not worse. Separation, divorce, ambiguous loss, chronic or terminal illness, or loss of status (e.g., financial or social) also involve a grieving process for individuals, couples or families. Many times, the repercussions of a loss are manifested in other presenting problems, such as school or behavioral problems in children and relational discord in couples. Working this through in a safe therapeutic environment will help you develop a new identity, and reestablish balance in you relationships.

When you have suffered a significant loss, it can be difficult to talk with the people who love you most because it can increase the distress of everyone involved. But talking is a way humans find positive meaning in even the most catastrophic events. A grief therapist can be a caring witness to all the complicated thoughts and feelings you have after a loss. Talking your way through the stages of grief with a therapist helps you move through the grief instead of suppressing it, release all the pain, and gradually to heal.
