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.

At Home or Private Discreet Intensives

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 is an emotional reaction to loss. The more significant the loss, the more intense the grief will be. While many people associate grief with death, grief can come from divorce or the end of a relationship, loss of good health, loss of a job, miscarriage, loss of financial stability, loss of a pet, loss of a dream, loss of family home, and so many more reasons. After a loss it is important to let our feelings out, if we bury them, they later may come out as continual depression and sadness. It is important to honestly recognize the grief or sadness and work through it.
