Anger management requires the ability to contain, own, reflect and evaluate anger as information and energy to inform decision making on how to best promote our self interest and keep us safe doing so. Many of us due to traumatic events early in our lives cannot extricate the experience of anger from grave fears of judgment, punishment or in severe cases, annihilation. Fight, flight and freeze are often unproductive, dangerous, and automatic reactions to the re-living of these traumatic events. The brain trips false alarms that must be rewired for patients to cease to be afraid of their anger. I use supportive therapy, mindfulness techniques and insight therapy to effect changes.

Anger usually is the expression of deep or masked pain. Often the pain is from repeated emotional injury, such as being humiliated, misunderstood, mocked, not recognized or sufficiently nurtured as a child, that this pain is not noticed as such. Instead, the longtime patterns of pretending to be happy while really feeling hurt, become routine. The question is not, how to manage anger. The better question is, why are you angry? This is what we will discover so that whatever is causing your anger, you will be able to release yourself from

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.

If you or your child have difficulties with anger, you know how devastating it can be to relationships, friendships, work and school life. Most people with anger issues, are otherwise good people, who are embarrassed and ashamed of the way they erupt! Why do nice people end up with anger problems? Often temper issues are related to other difficulties like impulse control issues stemming from ADHD, low self-esteem, poor modeling in their own families, childhood trauma, depression, or anxiety. I believe in a comprehensive approach which aims to change anger responses, as well as identify and address the underlying issues.

This is an area that is vital to understand and know how to manage in order to have a healthy, compatible relationship.

Anger is an expression of frustration. When we are frustrated and feel out of control, we react with anger. Anger as an emotion is not necessarily unhealthy. To bottle up anger can only lead to somatic illnesses such as ulcers and high blood pressure. Therefore, it can be healthy and cathartic to express pent-up anger and frustration. However, everything depends on how anger is expressed. Anger can be expressed in a carthartic, therapuetic manner or it can be expressed destructively. If you routinely express anger destructively, you probably learned this behavior in your family growing up. I can help you unlearn this habit through increased self-awareness and emotional control.

Anger is actually a secondary emotion. It is a mask for a deeper more complex feeling that we often are fearful to express, so we use anger to cover it. Many times a loss of power or a loss of control is what is fueling this anger. By getting at the root of your anger cycle you can better manage your day to day life. It decreases fights with those in your personal and professional life. It allows you to feel in control of your decisions and decreases the amount of regret you may walk around with after an angry outburst. If you are looking to change your anger habits and open your life up to more calm and peace this is the time to reach out for help.
