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.

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 a process that does not exist within conventional timelines. Therefore, my role in therapy is to support clients wherever they are in their journey. While grief is traditionally defined as the emotions tied to the death of a loved one, loss is felt in terms of personal identity, change in family structure, possibly through divorce, or dreams that never came true. Our goal in therapy is to work towards forgiveness, acceptance, and establishing a new normal.
