Very often people find that their angry outbursts surprise them (and those around them). This occurs most often because we haven't dealt with the real source of the anger. Clients often try to convince themselves that they are "over it" or that "it doesn't matter" when, in fact, they aren't over it and it does matter. I see this quite a lot in women - who tend to be socialize not to show anger. Therefore it leaks out in more passive aggressive and subtle ways. It's still anger - but it can be inflicted on herself or the true reason for the anger can be veiled making it difficult for others to figure how why there is an outburst.

Anger can get triggered in situations where you feel disrespected, shamed, rejected, powerless, not heard, not valued, or not safe. My approach for helping clients reduce their anger is to identify past experiences that elicit anger, frustration, fear, shame or other upsetting emotions and negative thoughts now, and then to reprocess those memories with EMDR therapy. I have also helped clients understand why they feel they need to hold on to their anger and then work through the blocks to letting the anger go while still helping them find other ways to feel in control, heard, respected or safe. Note: I do not offer Anger Management classes to meet work or court ordered requirements.

Anger usually becomes an issue in one of two ways: either 1) you express your anger explosively and use it as your go-to emotional response for anything that hurts or 2) you do not feel permission to be angry and become passive aggressive, inflicting pain on both yourself and others more subtly. Either way, anger not dealt with is harmful. Together we will get to the root cause of your anger, finding appropriate expressions for your emotions, alleviating emotional build up. Anger can be scary when ignored, but as soon as you turn to face it you take a little bit of your power back.

Anger is usually a more surface emotion for a deeper emotion such as fear or sadness. Anger can be like a flashing light on a dashboard of a car, indicating trouble inside. It is important to learn to diffuse and go to the root of this symptom. Looking at family of origin issues explains anger that many times seems inappropriate for current situations. I believe a person's past is the key to enjoying the present and fulfilling dreams of the future.

Whether you need to complete an anger assessment or a specific number of "anger control" therapy sessions have been court ordered, I can help. I am a Certified Anger Management Specialist (CAMS) in the state of Georgia and can equip you with the tools needed to get your anger under control. As a former police officer myself, I too used to have anger issues that were "out of control." I wanted my life back and peace, learning to deal with anger was a part of the process.

If you find yourself feeling unusually angry at your partner, or feeling angry much of the time toward several other people, I can help you get to the bottom of your stewing anger. I can help you understand the reaction in the brain that makes you want to fight, as well as how sweeping it under the rug leads to blowing up. I can teach you ways to interrupt your anger before it builds and to express it in appropriate ways so that you can improve your relationships with others instead of damage them with anger. If you have been engaging in physically abusive/aggressive behavior, please seek help from a Family Violence Intervention Program.

I help you learn from your anger and better understand why you get so upset. It is important to identify how and why you get upset so that it does not cause you further harm. Anger can take over your life and impact those around you including your family, friends, work or significant relationships. I help individuals let go of their anger and get more of what they really want in life.

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.
