Grief is a natural state after a loss. Mourning is natural and healthy. Acute grief does not need to be pathologized or treated. Those experiencing complicated grief may benefit from speaking to a warm, caring professional. In addition, a skilled therapist can listen, help you understand if therapy is appropriate or not, and explain what complicated grief is. If you are having sleep problems or symptoms of depression or PTSD related to the loss, therapy could be helpful. Our therapists are here to help and not interfere with the natural healing process. If support and guidance could be helpful to you, please call us with any questions.

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.

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.

We will work together to remember your loss and to move forward in life. You will be able to identify what the loss means to you and if that is causing you to remain stuck in the grieving process. I will help you use that meaning to start a healing journey. You will learn to take advantage of community resources and I will help support you through a difficult range of emotions. You will learn the interaction of your thoughts, emotions, and behaviors during the grieving process.

When we experience the death of a loved one many types of overwhelming feelings occur. As a therapist, it is my belief that It is important for you to discover your ability to experience, understand and share such feelings. As you explore your relationship with the person who has passed and see what gifts you gave one another, and what lessons have been learned, you can put things in a larger perspective. Allowing yourself to find meaning in the relationship and see how it still lives within you is very important. Among other things, it is what I help my clients focus on.

If it is a past loss we will talk about that relationship and what it meant to you, and see how that person affected you in your current life and what he/she meant to you. If it is a current or impending loss, we can focus on day-to-day issues to lessen anxiety, and process how to handle what time is left. Practical issues may be discussed. if you find yourself obsessing we will probably focus on feeling, if you find yourself lost in feeling, we may focus on verbalizing your thoughts and your feelings. If you are overwhelmed by depression and find it difficult to function, I will make recommendations for medications and/or alternative strategies.

Grief and loss can be triggered by many things; the death of a loved one, the loss of a beloved mate, being let go at a valued job, and many others. When we cannot get over the loss by ourselves, a therapist point us down new roads. Suddenly vistas of possibility begin to open up, and what once seemed hopelessly sad begins to take on its proper importance.

People seek support following the loss of a parent, grandparent, friend, child, loved one, or a pet. Sometimes it's struggles surrounding the loss of an identity, perhaps a breakup, or an athletic or physical injury that is leading to the loss of goals you had for yourself. No matter the type of loss, getting support during this time can be particularly helpful. Together we can work through the stages of grief, learn from your loss, and rebuild your sense of self so that you can move forward in your life.

Loss is an inevitable part of life, through the loss of a loved one, the loss of health, or the letting go of a long-held dream. The grief that follows is a natural part of the healing process, but it is difficult and painful. For many, the pain of grief can be overwhelming and there seems to be no end in sight. I help clients understand and accept where they are, to develop ways of coping, and to build a new path forward.

The key to my approach in working with people who are grieving a loss is to recognize that, while grief and loss are universal experiences, the way each person grieves can be very different. It is important to honor that. The key benefit in working with me is that I will help you find a way through your grieving that works for you. There is no one correct way. Each person has their own unique way of coping with grief and loss. My job is to help you find ways to heal in your own way.

The term “Grief” refers to one's reaction to loss. There is no normal timetable for recovering from grief. Some recover and resume normal activities within six months, while others experience grief for years without relief. In either situation, time typically does mitigate the intensity emotions related to the loss. There are some instances, however, where grief becomes debilitating and lasts for a year or longer. In these cases, the term “Complicated Grief” is used. If you or someone you know is in need of assistance in coping with grief, I encourage you to reach out for support.

Recovering from grief is never an easy process and nothing can replace the essential element: time. However, in therapy I can give you tools and techniques to help you manage pain, accept loss, and open up to life again. When you are overwhelmed by grief, it can seem like the pain will never depart. Whatever you do, though, don't give up. With the right help, the time will come when you can find the proper balance between mourning and facing your own future.
