I have been honored to work with many people who have lost a dear relationship. This is a pain where the circumstances cannot change, the loss is real and fundamentally changes the person who has experienced that loss. However, not all is lost and you still have a life to live. Often, people need someone outside of their friend/family group to process through the waves of anger and denial, guilt and fear. I like to remind my clients that grief will cycle through, but with each cycle they are growing stronger, standing on the gift of their loved ones' life and honoring them in their healing. You can heal and your loved one will not be forgotten.

I am particularly practiced at helping clients work through the kinds of grief and loss that result from life-long or acquired disability and chronic, life-threatening or terminal illness. My professional interest in this area stems from my personal experiences with a life-long disability and, more recently, a chronic illness. I use Emotion Focused, Existential, mindfulness-based, and other strategies to help my clients gain access to their feelings regarding their losses and figure out how to live the richest life possible given their particular circumstances.

You're sad and you don't know why. You cry and are confused. There are areas in your life where you have lost much and you don't know how to grieve it, or where to go to get help. You've heard well meaning friends tell you the pad answers, but you really just want someone to hold you and make it go away. Therapy is a sense of "emotional holding" that helps those feelings make more sense and as opposed to those feelings going away, we learn how to live within our grief and loss when we explore it.

Grief is a difficult issue for all of us because it looks differently for everyone. However, there are some common themes in how we grieve as men and women. If you or someone you know is grieving and finding it difficult to acknowledge their grief or know what to do next, therapy is the best place to explore how they might grieve fully and in so doing, be able to move forward in life.

Death of a loved one or loss of something significant in your life can creep up in ways you hadn't expected. My holistic way of looking at your situation and compassionate presence can help you explore your feelings and allow you deeper freedom to get through this difficult time. Finding the right fit with a counselor is of utmost importance. For that reason, if a client visits with me for the first visit and decides he or she does not want to continue on with me, that first session is absolutely free.

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.

Working with people experiencing grief I want to help illuminate all aspects of it, including past grief that has gone unresolved. Each grief causing event has a life cycle. And while most grief is never 100% worked through, the less it it has been processed the more it piggybacks on the next event as a layering effect. Just understanding this can help make sense of our feelings. This is a starting point.

When you lose someone unexpectedly, the whole world feels out of control, dangerous. This time can be wrought with confusion, anger, grief, darkness and numbness. When you experience a loss, you may feel all alone and as if no one will ever understand your experience. Therapy is a place to give voice to this experience and make space for the feelings that come with loss. I provide a judgment free, warm, environment for exploring pain, remembering, processing what you've lost and healing.

Psychotherapist

Loss can be found in almost every experience - even the most positive changes in life ask us to let go of something, something we are familiar with, something that - for good or ill - is part of us. Loss can create confusion and discontent and other defeating patterns that can keep you stuck, blocking the sometimes frightening yet relieving, healing flow of grief - grief that can lead you to new hope and renewed or expanded meaning in life. With this in mind, as you are able, we'll explore what loss you have experienced or are currently facing in your particular situation or life story, and thus find our way to your heart and soul where grieving can open up space for hope and new perspective

Working through grief and loss, while respecting needed defenses can take months if not years, but can enhance the quality of your life. We will respect defenses and consider a variety of emotions, which may include relief, anger, sadness, regret, fear and loneliness with my help. It is my strong believe that this process entails work and time, but can lead to personal growth, which can enhance your knowledge and appreciation of yourself and therefore enhance your capacity to be empathic with others.

Moving through grief and loss is a process. Often loss creates a change and that change can affect you on many levels. Your loss can impact you physically, emotionally; it may alter your identity, your dreams and leave you with thoughts of what should have or what would have been. When I work people experiencing grief and loss, we begin by witnessing the loss, learning what it means to you and how it has changed your life. Depending upon the loss and the person, we will find ways to support and help you manage your pain and your life as you move through the process.

Is grief making it difficult to function in daily life, leaving you unable to enjoy living? Are you feeling overwhelmed by excessive bitterness, guilt or anger? Do you find yourself withdrawing from friends and family with near constant feelings of despair? If you find you answered yes to several or all of these questions, your grief may have evolved into clinical depression and it may be time to seek help. Be gentle with yourself, knowing there is no right or wrong way to grieve and all of your feelings are normal, even if it feels like you're going crazy. I will help you to understand what is happening to you and walk beside you as you move through your very personal grieving process.
