Here's a good quote about grief: "When the heart weeps for what it has lost, the spirit laughs for what it has found." But we all know what a painful journey it can be as we struggle to go from those tears to that laughter. I deal with 3 aspects of grief: #1: The time before an anticipated loss--Much can be done to prepare for a loved one's or our own death to lessen our anxiety. #2: The time immediately after a loss when we are trying to make sense of ourselves & the world with this new & aching absence. #3: Further down the road when we seek to reshape our future, building on the increased wisdom & personal strength we have gained through out loss. I'd love to help you on this journey.

Loss is inevitable. It is the flip side of love and the greatest pain we know. Hearts can break and hearts can heal. We must first accept ALL feelings. We can cultivate gratitude for the gifts our loved one gave us. Sometimes it is also important to acknowledge and learn from the mistakes of the one we have lost., the ways they may have caused pain to themselves and others. If the person has been a large part of our daily living, it is as if we need to recreate our lives bringing new resources into the emptiness. The waves of extreme pain become less frequent with time. The person's memory remains with us, and their gifts to us can inspire those very strengths in ourselves.

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.
