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. .

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.

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.

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.

5801 W Plano Pkwy, Plano, Texas 75093 | 214-773-6201

Men, sometimes we just feel we need to be the strong one - the one others lean on. But, there comes a time when we need to grieve also...to experience and express the loss we have had. Easy? No. Necessary? Yes. And, we often do not have a role model on how to do this: that is where I come in. I can be your guide on how to process the loss and learn to live going forward. Give me a call and we can talk about how I can help.

Licensed Professional Counselor - Associate

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.

Together we will understand sources of loss and normalize your current grief state. Through this process, I provide support to you in progressing through your emotional states and finding your own form of acceptance. Any form of loss can provide an emotional toll, those emotions need to be felt and dealt with in healthy ways to promote growth. I look forward to working with you on your journey through these difficult times.

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. Even the pandemic we are currently experiencing can be seen as a loss and generate any of the grief emotional states. .. 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.

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.

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.
