Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Mission Valley, Hillcrest and Mission Hills, San Diego, CA 92108

I have been providing individual, couple, family, and group therapy to people coping with grief and loss for 15 years. Specializing in oncology, I understand the challenges for individuals and families coping with life threatening and long term illness. I have experience in perinatal death, sudden death, and helping grieving children. Grief and loss isn't just about death and dying, it is about the many small and large changes that occur in life when everything changes quickly. Choosing me as a therapeutic partner ensures a level of understanding around the many layers of challenges you and your family are facing.

People experience many different kinds of grief and loss, from the death of a friend or family member (including pets) to loosing a job or one's health. Therapy for grief and loss can help you through a very difficult and painful transition. Grief is a normal reaction to loss, and allowing yourself to spend time grieving instead of pushing down the feelings and emotions that ought to be expressed can help you to manage through this time in the best way possible. I provide a safe and caring place and a supportive therapeutic relationship as you work through your experience and manage the wide range of emotions you may feel.

Grief is a very real and painful experience with many dimensions, and it has no time limit. Well-meaning loved ones may not understand the extent of your grief and pain. Mourning is a process that is unique and personal. Not everyone grieves in the same way nor does everyone require the same amount of time to work through their grief. Grief can be complicated by the length of the relationship with the person who died, the nature of that relationship, any traumatic components to the loss, multiple losses, and the strength of your remaining support system. If your grief feels overwhelming or your depression lasting, contact me for the support you need to heal and find your way forward.

When you suffer the loss of a loved one, you certainly will experience great sorrow. But it is also possible that you may experience symptoms similar to clinical depression. It is normal for these symptoms to last for days. But if they continue at a significant level for a week or more, you may need extra support. Grief counseling can be of benefit. I will help you move through the grief process in a constructive and purposeful way. We will engage you in specific interventions that honor your loss, and help you find the meaning in the painful reality you experience. Taking time for purposeful grieving, you learn to re-engage in your normal life, minimizing the risk of clinical depression.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

San Diego, CA 92101

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.

Grief and loss is a painful and individual experience. Individuals express and experience bereavement in their own unique way. Grief work is beneficial to individuals dealing with bereavement because it provides one with the opportunity to process the loss, release painful emotions, develop constructive coping mechanisms and reinvest one's emotional energy in the present. Grief work also allows one to develop a new connection to the loss and provides one with a unique opportunity for personal growth.
