It is very common for individuals to seek psychotherapy in times of grief. The death of a loved one is perhaps the single most intensive emotional experience an individual must face.We understand that sometimes there is little hope and trust because the road to recovery has been exhausting full of short-lived success. ART is dedicated to find an individualized treatment that closely fits the unique circumstances of each client; we do not apply "one size fits all" type of therapeutic treatment.

Grief and loss are a powerful experience with many aspects and dimensions. No two people go through it the same. And we have much loss in our lives, besides our loved ones, and each is a mourning experience. Loss is part of life, but it doesn't have to be only a negative experince. When worked with properly, such experiences can be transformative, and fuel your growth.

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 email@example.com or 877-606-6161.

The loss of a loved one is a tremendously painful and personal process. Grief and bereavement therapy with Dr. Vaughan provides a source of support and serves as an outlet for expressing the wide array of emotions and experiences - disbelief, anger, depression, sadness, emptiness, heartbreak, denial, guilt - that often comprise the grieving process. In a confidential, non-judgmental and supportive environment, Dr. Vaughan helps clients to make sense of their experiences and to find ways of coping with strong emotions.

Grief is something you will, unfortunately, have to go through. You can't go around it, skip over it to the end, or otherwise avoid it. I can help you realize when you are going through the process and when you're fleeing it in a way that will come back to bit you in the ***. On the positive side, going through grief is not as complicated as it's sometimes cracked up to be. Talking - with the right person - goes a long way to moving the process forward.

Grief is unavoidable and comes in many forms. From the loss of a loved one to the loss of a job or career, grief can be overwhelming and make accomplishing daily tasks difficult at best. Seldom do family and friends understand what you are going through. And after the crisis is over, your supportive friends and family become consumed with their lives. Therapy with me can offer you an environment to go through your grief while you continue your relationships outside of the office.

Grief is a reaction to loss that encompasses a range of feelings, thoughts, and behaviors. It is experienced differently by each person according to his or her culture, background, gender, beliefs, personality, and relationship to the deceased. I work with clients to express the full range of feelings that may be present including sadness, yearning, guilt, regret, anger, and a sense of meaninglessness. Clients become more comfortable with their loss over time; the amount of time varies by person.

Grief and loss can come in many forms. While most people think of death and dying, loss can be a separation or divorce, loss of a job, retirement, moving, seeing a child off to college, losing weight. There are so many more that I could list. All of these have an impact on us and how we view ourselves and our world. They shake us, they make us feel a bit less steady. It requires a therapeutic relationship that is supportive, understanding and hopeful.

Grief is a natural state after a loss. Mourning is natural and healthy. Acute grief does not need to be pathologized or treated. Those experiencing complicated grief may benefit from speaking to a warm, caring professional. In addition, a skilled therapist can listen, help you understand if therapy is appropriate or not, and explain what complicated grief is. If you are having sleep problems or symptoms of depression or PTSD related to the loss, therapy could be helpful. Our therapists are here to help and not interfere with the natural healing process. If support and guidance could be helpful to you, please call us with any questions.

Grief and loss are experiences that lead us to feel sad, angry, shocked or numb. In our work together, we will process the many reactions you have in relation to your loss. You will experience unconditional support as you move through the stages of grief. We will work to identify your inner strengths and resources, and external supports, using them to guide you in your healing process.

Grief and loss inevitably leads to anger & sadness. Not surprisingly, it also can lead to depression and feelings of guilt. The latter is called irrational guilt, as most of us lack magical powers to cure dying people. Even if they mean the world to us. I would encourage my clients to express feeling of guilt and anger often unconscious related to the loss. The anger is often at the person who died. Of course, this is irrational anger in most cases, as we all are going to die. The anger is over losing someone we love, value. I would use clinical interventions that usher in the grieving process. This fosters coming to terms with and an acceptance of the loss.

Grief and loss can be triggered by many things; the death of a loved one, the loss of a beloved mate, being let go at a valued job, and many others. When we cannot get over the loss by ourselves, a therapist point us down new roads. Suddenly vistas of possibility begin to open up, and what once seemed hopelessly sad begins to take on its proper importance.

Depression and grief are often confounded. Although the etiology may be different, the shared characteristic is the overwhelming sense of sadness and loss, which can be amenable to cognitive-behavioral techniques. Understanding of the progression through the stages of grief (typically Kubler-Ross) is usually helpful. I have had particular experience with patients who are immobilized by prolongued grieving.
