Abigail Blackburn, Psy.D.
Women often have a hard time getting mad, and turn anger inward. Men often have difficulty keeping anger in check, and can be threatening or passive aggressive. And vice versa. No matter your style, anger is a problem when it blinds you to using good judgment, costs you a relationship or job, or causes you to use your power inappropriately, or to fear confronting it directly. My treatment approach helps clients understand their anger, where it comes from, how it serves them and what is hurt. You'll learn why certain triggers set you off and how to manage your reflexive responses more productively. If anger is causing you or others injury, therapy can make the difference for good.

Anger is a complex and often misrepresented emotion. The danger of undiagnosed, high levels of anger can have harmful consequences for individuals, families and careers. As we work together, I can help you understand patterns of anger and its origins, as well as how to calm that part of you, and how to repair the relationships that were damaged as a result of anger directed at others. Examples of questions to ask yourself are: How has your anger been a liability to you and/or your loved ones? What has been the most profound cost of your anger? In the past, how have you had success controlling your anger or keeping it at bay? When your anger is better, who will be the first person to notice?

If you are motivated to change I can help you learn and practice skill and steps to change whatever form your anger has taken. If you are seeking help because others have pushed you to do something about it or because you know you need to there is possibility of change. I utilize a particular intervention called EMDR which involves desensitizing old disturbances allowing you to refrrame and shift to more useful, positive behaviors.

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.

At Life Changes Group, we recognize the detrimental impact of anger and aggression on the health of relationships and work with clients through a stepwise progression of identifying triggers, reducing the associated affect, and developing healthier styles of communication. In addition to compassionate listening, we provide specific, evidence-based tools for reducing anger - such as deep breathing, meditation, and visual imagery. These methods have proven to be effective time and time again for lessening intense emotions and buying the time you need to make healthier, rational decisions under moments of duress. We all experience anger; the skill is to find appropriate ways to express it.

The emotion of anger is neither positive or negative. It is simply an emotion. It is what we DO with the anger, HOW we react to being angry, that is most important. Unexpressed anger can turn to anxiety, depression and self-loathing. Additionaly, suppressed or denied anger can erode relationships, impact employment and negatively impact our health. In an educational and supportive environment, we exempllify and model effective anger management skills to help empower you. Healthy expressions of anger resolve conflicts, eliminate feelings of powerlessness, and increase self-esteem.
