Anger is an emotion that sometimes gets a bad rap! Anger is not bad; it's what you do with it that is sometimes bad. Anger Management has many different approaches. I believe it is finding the strategies or tools that work for the individual; or looking at what the deeper issue is that is fueling the anger. What is really behind the anger? Sadness? Fear? Grief? Exploring different avenues can bring a person to a different place with their anger.

I will help you adopt a more composed style, one where you can communicate your thoughts without becoming confrontational. I’ll assist you in harnessing your positive traits and in applying them to managing your anger. In our sessions, we’ll discuss that anger is more of a secondary emotion to more primary feelings such as fear, guilt, shame, powerlessness, or sadness. Together, we will identify the triggers that upset you, so that you can be more self-aware and develop coping skills. Reducing anger will improve your self-image, patience, interactions with family and career success, while reducing health issues such as headache and backaches. Contact me to discuss how counseling can work for you.

Grey Matters International and the work of Kevin J. Fleming, Ph.D approaches issues of anger management in a very humane yet fresh perspective. You see, anger is a normal emotion but it is the valence (intensity) as well as the coupling choice of what one does with this that is the problem. Telling someone to "not" do it or modifying behavior with a trite psychological plan that only breeds a compliant response is not the way to change anger. Brainwave optimization is a new cutting edge technology that allows one to rewire circuitry responsible for reactivity driving the anger.

Anger is a natural emotion everyone experiences. Anger can even have purpose: to bring us to action during injustice or even to protect others from harm. If however, anger escalates and hurts others emotionally or physically therapy is needed. I have heard clients say, "it's in my genes", or "so and so makes me so mad...". Perhaps, but truth is, there is never a good reason to let anger take control our lives. Relationships suffer, and often we hurt the people we love. My approach to therapy is to help you find balance. We will look at what your triggers , where, when anger is most present, how it affects you physically. Together, we find the tools you need to find a healthier way.
