Dealing with human emotions can be complicated. We have so many and often we allow others' behaviors and actions to influence how we feel and react. Dealing with life and people is stressful and sometimes it is hard to be positive and happy. If your anger causes you health problems; high blood pressure, cholesterol, sleep disturbances, destructive behaviors, relationship and work issues, drug and alcohol abuse...then maybe you need to seek professional help. Person centered talk therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy and learning relaxation techniques and positive coping skills is an area of expertise for me as a therapist.

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.

Anger effects many areas of life, and can be the source of a great many life problems. Managing your anger requires first understanding it, it is a signal that something is wrong, and second learning the skills that will allow you to express yourself in ways that will give you the best chances of expressing your needs, and having them met without damaging important relationships.

EMDR therapy can help you to get out of this frustrating cycle by allowing you to feel the pain you are running from, develop compassion for yourself, and learn to accept and love yourself. This sounds simple but the process takes time and dedicated lifestyle changes. The rewards are a happier, less addictive lifestyle with more pleasure and less pain.EMDR therapy can be very helpful in recreating new networks toward changing your negative thoughts and feelings. In effect, you become less afraid of feeling sorrow and pain, because you trust that joy and contentment are on the other side.

Uncontrollable anger, a bad temper and aggression can lead to significant relationship and career failures. Identifying the triggers that cause one to become upset and learning more adaptive strategies and solutions are the essential ingredients for change. Cognitive restructuring, problem solving, improving communication and relaxation strategies are but a few approaches used in anger management treatment. Working with partners, spouses or family members is also beneficial. At times, medication may be warranted in conjunction with therapy or counseling. We at Ashburn Psychological Services are here to help.

I have nearly 20 years experience running anger management groups and working with individuals and couples on this issue. Anger is aggressive. The aggression of anger protects us by pushing away and hurting others before they hurt us. As a result, anger problems always created damage our lives and emotional distance from those we care about. You will learn to manage your feelings in ways that undo the damage your anger has caused. Your life will function in healthier ways, without the chaos your anger has caused. And you will move closer to the people who matter, rather than dealing with the fallout and distance your anger has caused. Both you and those close to you will benefit greatly.

Living with anger management can cause difficulties in many aspects of a person's world. Personal, professional and community relationships are at risk if one struggles with anger issues. Tools to reduce anger management involve exploring the root of the anger and dissecting it to discern when, how and why certain anger triggers are activated. Once identifying triggers, we work on how the client can learn to channel the anger into a more productive direction be it via physical activity or other appropriate energy releases. There can also be a focus on mindfulness and meditation to help with the overwhelming anger impulses.

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.

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.

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.

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.

I believe that I can teach you to manage your anger by changing your thoughts. I primarily use Rational Emotive Behavior Therapyto help you learn effective anger management. Once you learn the most common irrational beliefs, you will be able to recognize these beliefs in your own thinking and be able to develop more rational beliefs. This will translate into feelings of concern rather than anger.

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.

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.

Anger is a human emotion, and everyone experiences it. The problem comes when we act on our anger in an inappropriate or unhealthy way. My work involves helping clients to identify and change thoughts and behaviors that contribute to their anger and to find more positive ways of expressing anger. We explore relaxation and stress relieving techniques to help the client manage stress. We also may explore underlying emotions and feelings and work on healing any emotional wounds. If the client is in a relationship, I will work with the couple to help them connect and change the dynamics in their relationship that contribute to the anger.
