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.

Grief brings the hardest combination of all feelings - despair, anger, fear and love. It can right leave us with unmanagable pain, feeling disoriented and questioning everything. Sometimes it feels too painful to step back into the world that dares to carry on as if nothing happened. Sometimes we need someone to remind us that it is a place we are passing through and not a destination. I offer gentle guidance and strong support through grief. I work with you find ways to make sense of you loss, learn to manage your feelings in new ways and find your way back into life again.

Drawing upon the work of Elizabeth Kubler-Ross ("On Death & Dying" and "On Grief and Grieving"), I support people in their grieving journey, assessing the challenges and also the strengths each person has to most effectively adjust to loss and develop effective coping strategies. Ultimately, finding ways to carry this loss and grief in the most graceful way possible is the goal to be attained. Courage and faith along with a growing spiritual understanding and openness contribute greatly to the success of this work.

867 Bradley Drive, Whitby, Ontario L1N 8L9 | 905-430-3538

Dr. Smith became a psychologist as a direct result of a traumatic loss when his brother Donald was killed by a train when Donald was l2 and Dr. Smith was a little boy. This loss caused Dr. Smith to be paralyzed with grief for several years. Dr. Smith is a recovered grief survivor because of his willingness to get professional help and training. No one should have to do this job alone. Lack of recovery from grief results in severe physical and emotional problems, including marital dysfunction, substance abuse, accidents, failure at work, relationships problems and unhappiness.

Grief and Loss are experiences that all of us have throughout our lives. Sometimes by surprise, other times the result of one of the many significant life transitions that can lead us to despair and heartache. Such losses weigh heavy on the human heart and soul. Whether it be the death of a loved one, the departure of one once loved, a sudden illness or a change of life plan, you will feel nourished from the support I will provide to you. Working together, I will help you in the process of grieving and resolving the thoughts and feelings that such an experience can bring forth. It is important that you have the time needed to reflect and be able to move on, when the time is right for you.

When a person has experienced the loss of someone or something significant, it is not uncommon for them to experience overwhelming feelings of sadness, a sense of confusion or "being at a loss", as well as difficulty experiencing happiness and joy. At New Roots Therapy, we acknowledge that these feelings - as well as many others - may emerge for you as you move through your own experience of grief and loss. We believe that, in working with grief and loss, it is not just about "moving past" or "letting go". Rather, our hope is to honour the uniqueness of your experience and to help you connect your feelings of grief to the importance of the lost relationship on your life.
