Grief is a part of life though sometimes it feels as if we are expected by society to "get over" a loss quickly and without difficulty. I believe that grief is a process that requires time and sometimes guidance to help explore the loss as well as begin to heal and work toward finding joy again, in your own way and in your own time and space. We will work together toward this common goal.

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.

Grieving a loved one, an unfortunate experience that has occurred, or even a hopeful experience that has not occurred, can bring about many emotions. The stages of grief can be complex. I would like to assist you in a nonjudgmental, caring, and therapeutic environment. I use an eclectic approach to counseling. This means that I am trained in numerous therapeutic approaches. In a counseling session we will explore emotional and cognitive barriers, past and present relationships, and collaboratively devise therapy goals.

Every kind of grief as well as each person's journey through grief is unique. Sometimes you may feel like you are losing your mind, but it is all a part of the grief process. Your pain, confusion and frustration is all a natural part of grief and if you have other loved ones journeying through grief along with you, there is often great relief found in talking about your grief jouney with someone removed from your family. I would consider it an honor to be that person and to help you in any way I can.

Life is full of sad, unexplainable events which cause us to experience loss and to grieve. At times, words are helpful, but sometimes nonverbal expression is important for our healing. Through conversation, emotional expression, art, sandtray work, and understanding the stages of grief, clients are offered assistance to face issues and to recover.

Grief is a normal reaction to a loss. . . The loss can be, of a loved one, self worth, integrity, a dream, anything that leaves us with an empty spot. .. It can show up as denial, depression, anxiety, fear, guilt, anger, in any combination, and people often see these feelings as problems.... In fact, as bad as they feel, as painful as they are, they are part of the solution. Counseling can help with healing, and in doing so, ease the painful days.

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.

The popularly understood stages of grief: denial, bargaining, anger, despair, and acceptance, typically don't occur in order and some loved ones don't experience one or more of the first four stages at all. Movement between the stages is often more like the movement in a pinball machine. Grieving often goes beyond the mourning of a physical death. Sometimes it is the death of a relationship or marriage, death of a career path, death of a dream, and so on. Many of us get stuck in our grief. Let me help you get "unstuck."

I work with clients facing grief and loss by allowing them to work through the often confusing and overwhelming feelings of shock, denial, bargaining, sadness and acceptance. The stages of grief do not fit a linear pattern and it is normal to vacillate between feelings and sometimes to regress. Together, we sort through the emotions in order to move towards a path of acceptance and the allowance of future joy.

Life changes so quickly and sometimes we come to loose loved ones and loved relationships before we were ready. Together we can move from the pain of the loss to begin to see life in a new light, we work towards moving forward without forgetting the important lessons from the past. Sometimes we grieve the loss of loved ones, but sometimes our losses can be a relationship, a job, a friend and through all those we need to find a way of coming to terms and continue living. Let me help you find again a reason to keep going.

Grief is hard. Grief is natural. Animals grieve. Grief is something we feel deep in our bodies and can be disorienting and destabilizing. Grief brings up questions about who we are, the world, the existence or goodness of God, and purpose and futility of life. Dealing with grief, especially when the loss is traumatic and unexpected, requires a slow and tender space to allow the grief to move through our body and to settle in our hearts with warmth and memory. I am here to help you grieve the loss of your loved one, experience, health , future or even your beloved pet. .
