Have you been told how to deal with your anger with little or no help? Do you find most anger management strategies relatively easy to understand but quite difficult to put into practice? If so, you are not alone. There is a reason for this and it is not because you are not trying hard enough. Anger is a very important and powerful emotion that must be addressed in a deeply emotional way and not just through our heads, knowledge or understanding. This requires the expertise of a therapist who is comfortable and skilled in working with anger.

Many people have quick tempers and are easily flooded with unhappy emotions. Using new information from neuroscience, we help people learn to observe and think about their own anger process, and then learn ways to re-evaluate and apply “antidote” thoughts to the angry ones. Conversely, many people carry resentment and grudges, and have a lively inner critic of themselves or others, but don’t know how to effectively request what they need and want. They may stew rather than share the needs for safety, control or connection which fuel the anger. Again, we help people follow the feelings, re-appraise them, and come up with a whole different set of actions and reactions. And then practice them in rea....

How we control our anger is a learned skill. Many clients simply did not have a model of appropriate anger control, and can benefit from additional tools to use when they become frustrated or anxious. Therapy is a place to process life events that cause anger to increase, and a place to learn to control the aggression that can come forward at that time.

Anger is energy. The question is whether it is being appropriately focused, whether it is based on realistic expectations, and whether it is running the show versus being an indicator of other issues. I will help you explore the thoughts, feelings, and beliefs underneath your anger and develop tools and plans to better address the hopes, dreams, and injustices that matter most to you.

Anger is an unresolved issue from the past, which eventually ruins most relationships in a person's future. Anger is an emotion that we all experience. However, how one deals with their anger can become a big part of a problem. For some couples, anger can make it nearly impossible to figure out what the problem is or how to fix it. Counseling will decipher the root of the anger, and then how the client may manage those feelings. Oftentimes, sessions will involve the client, and the people who reside with them. Residents are encouraged to participate in counseling sessions for healing. The biggest challenge to living with a resentful or angry person is to keep from becoming one yourself.

Anger is an emotion that, when expressed assertively treats self and others with dignity, and helps us stand up for ourselves to clarify and express what we need or want, like or don't like, etc. On the other hand, anger, as an automatic defense strategy, can damage both ourrelationships and personal health. As a defense strategy, anger is expressed in one of two ways. Some express their resentment outwardly, such as with yelling, and others express it inwardly, by withdrawing, stewing with resentment inside. Awareness of inner thoughts, emotions & body's signals, and understanding how brain & body work together are keys to regulating anger.

I specialize in Mr. Nice Guy/ Ms. Nice Gals. So often the stress and frustration that underlies our angry outbursts comes from taking so much on or having so much our plate.

Using goal targeted talk therapy and holistic methods that fit each person's style I can help you get more (respect, response, of what and how you want things, space, peace, etc), by knowing what and how

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.

Using an integrative approach, based on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Assertiveness Training, and Interpersonal Psychology, I seek to understand, raise your consciousness, teach, role play, and develop healthy assertive communication skills and stress management skills. I employ empathy in my approach, trying to understand and raise your consciousness of the background, cognitive distortions, and emotional triggers which perpetuate your angry response. I also try to help you identify what sadness, difficulties with lack of control and uncertainty, and fears may be driving your angered response. I employ homework exercises and stress management development to help you reach these goals.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

1110 Fidler Lane, #1417, Silver Spring, Maryland 20910

Anger is a natural response to hurt and fear but it can cause more pain in our lives if we use it to hurt others, physically or emotionally. Anger that is destructive, usually comes from an old hurt that we are carrying within us. This hurt has been painfully touched by circumstances or by the actions of someone else. First we need to learn ways to stop our hurtful actions by taking a break or walking away. Then, however, we need to turn our attention to the underlying hurt and to bring compassion and care to our own hurt self. You will find that at the same time, you become more compassionate toward other people.

We all experience anger in our lives. I help clients develop healthy ways to experience and express their anger by: • Identifying effective ways to handle anger and express feelings; • Understanding how feelings such as fear, pride and inferiority feed anger; • Transforming negative patterns of thinking, relating and behaving that influence anger; • Learning ways to communicate, resolve conflicts and meet needs successfully; and • Developing a healthy lifestyle that supports a successful life. The constructive use of anger, assertiveness, helps express and preserve our needs, worth, and convictions while considering and respecting the needs and feelings of others.

Anger is usually an indication of other deep seated emotions. While working on reducing angry behavior can help live a more peaceful life, getting to the deep seated emotion that drives the behavior is the approach I use. Doing this may not be the desired approach for many; however, the emotional reactions someone has with anger management can can be difficult to manage without understanding what is going on with them.

Sometimes we do not know why we are angry and what to do to control it. I will help you to learn tools you can use to calm down and deal with things in a positive way. Anger can prevent you from obtaining many of the things you want in life. Once you learn how to identify your triggers you will be able to take steps to prevent that big blowup. We may use meditation and tai chi techniques to put yourself in a calm place.

Deborah Cole, Psy.D.

Licensed Psychologist

5525 Twin Knolls Rd. #331, Columbia, Maryland 21045

I really don't like the words "anger management" as I think angry feelings have a lot to say to us. We need to acknowledge our anger but that doesn't mean we need to express it in an explosive way. Denying our anger is not healthy and leads to anxiety, depression, and even explosions of anger. Anger is like a wall and behind it are other feelings, often of sadness and hurt. And anger leads to walls which keep us isolated from others.

Beth Levine, LCSW-C

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

932 Hungerford Drive, #2A, Rockville, Maryland 20850

We all get angry sometimes. Anger, like other emotions, is important. It signals to us that something is going on that we need to pay attention to and understand better. If we don’t slow ourselves down, anger can take up a lot of space in our relationships and our lives. I work with people to help them recognize the triggers for their anger, what meaning this trigger holds for them, and what feelings are fueling the anger. In this way, people can express their feelings and needs in a way that leads to happier lives and better relationships.

Jeffrey Crouch, LCSW-C

Therapist

10632 Little Patuxent Pkwy Suite 313, Columbia, Maryland 21044

I have run anger management programs for many years. I have an eight week program to assist clients to experience and express their anger and other feelings in ways that are healing. I have also provided couples with ways to communicate their anger so they feel heard and better understood. Often times people are feeling sad or hurt but can only feel safe with the feeling of anger. I will give you tools to express all your feeling to feel calmer and peaceful.

John Rhead, Ph.D., CGP

Licensed Psychologist

5560 Sterrett Pl. #205, Columbia, Maryland 21044

I do not help clients to "manage" anger. I help them to understand its source and to use it productively rather than destructively. Sometimes it covers up some other feelings that need to be dealt with, and sometimes it is simply directed at the wrong person. By coming to understand your anger better you keep it from making problems and use it to find solutions.

Ann Klein, LCSW-C, MSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Marriage & Family Therapist

6239 Plaited Reed, Columbia, Maryland 21044

First I help the client to understand the purpose of their anger. There are usually feelings underneath, such as, hurt, sadness, feeling betrayed. Anger is a warning that something is wrong. We explore other ways to handle the issue without acting out the anger. Many people are impulsive and will need to change this habit to learn new ways to deal with their feelings. Groups can be very helpful. It is important to learn how acting out anger affects other people especially those you are close to.
