Anger can be a difficult emotion to manage. Do you have a "short fuse", go from "0-100 in 20 seconds"? This is typical for people who are struggling with anger management. If you are reading this listing it might mean that you've been thinking about the ways that anger has affected your life and your relationships and are hoping that things can get better. They can. Anger management work requires active participation and engagement from clients, but fortunately, excellent, proven, interventions exist for this issue. Not only will you be better able to manage your anger, but you will feel more balanced overall. I have helped many clients with this issue. Call me for more information.

Anger in and of itself is not a bad thing---it's what we do with it that counts. If you find that your anger has impacted your relationships or day to day life, or you find it difficult to control or manage, I can help. I believe anger management is about self-understanding, coping skills, communication and responsibility. I also believe it is about getting a better sense of the other emotions underneath the anger (i.e., hurt) that can fuel or maintain it. I enjoy working with people as they negotiate a different relationship with their anger, and learn how to empower themselves in a more healthy and mindful fashion.

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.

Do you have trouble naming your triggers? When you become angry, is it difficult for you to take a step back and think before you react? I have found that problems arise when a person reacts immediately when angry instead of taking a moment to think about the possible consequences of their reactions. I work to help clients identify the things that make them angry, notice when their anger begins to form, and slow down their reactionary processes once the anger hits.

Every time you mismanage anger, you also miss an opportunity to do something powerful and effective.: being understood. Now is the time to stop the damage, and learn how to use the power of your emotions without repeating the same overpowering outbursts that have driven that huge wedge between you and your family members. Now you can learn how to stop selling yourself short by defaulting to anger, and instead be given the steps to an effective way to manage all your feelings and behaviors. Angry people want to be understood. I can show you the road to the understanding you want.

Do you find it difficult to distinguish between experiencing the emotion of anger and the behavior you exhibit when angry? While "anger-management" techniques are somewhat helpful, the results are often not sustained. Appropriate attention to the underlying issues of depression and anxiety is critical in effectively addressing anger-related difficulties. A combination of Cognitive-Behavioral and Psychodynamic therapies focused on these issues can greatly help you to learn with and accept your "emotion" of anger without needing or being triggered into "behaving" in an angry and destructive manner. If you have trouble controlling your anger and want help, feel free to contact me.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Half Moon Bay, CA

It is absolutely normal for people to get angry. It is only a problem if you are not able to control it and it overtakes you and has a negative effect or hurts the people around you. When the negative consequences are more frequent and you want to do something about it, then half of the battle is already won. Anger is an external emotion. I will guide you to peel the layers and look at where these things are stemming from. You will work on the root cause of the emotions and learn skills and tools that will help you control your emotions. You will work on ways to boost your confidence and self-esteem, learn how to build healthier and lasting relationships and express your emotions confidently

Anger is a natural feeling that everyone experiences. It is what we do with out anger, how we handle it, that can cause us trouble. I help my clients understand their thoughts and their reactions by beginning with an understanding of what happens in their bodies when they get angry and or frustrated (they go hand in hand). We look at ways to recognize when anger is building and importantly to recognize the triggers, what is going on just before the feelings build. Together we explore the thoughts and feelings, help change some of those thoughts and learn important ways to manage them.

Many of us experience anger and/or rage in the course of our relationships. Anger in and of itself is not a problem - in fact its a good way to let you know that there is some vulnerable feeling underneath that is too painful to reach just yet. Its what we DO with our anger that gets us in trouble. I can teach you tools to manage your anger without denying your entitlement to it.

If you struggle with anger, therapy can help. Many people find that anger is the easiest emotion for them to access. Maybe under the anger you are hurt, lonely, afraid, jealous, sad or ashamed. Wouldn't it be great to have a whole range of emotions again? I use mindfulness to help you learn to sooth your nervous system and psychodynamic therapy to identify what's behind your anger. If you have experienced difficult or traumatic events that are weighing you down, EMDR therapy can free you up to live and act in the present.

Charis Khoury, MA, MFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Half Moon Bay, CA

Anger has both harmful and healthy/constructive potential depending on how it is dealt with. If you are coming to therapy for anger management, you are probably experiencing anger as interfering with your relationships, your work, or your general wellbeing. Sometimes a propensity towards anger signals that other things may be going on--stress, shame, or other feelings that may be hard to tolerate. In an atmosphere of acceptance and non judgment, we will work with mindfulness to build tolerance for a wider range of feelings, to find ease and to uncover the gems hidden beneath reactive anger.

Talk therapy releases some of the tension of anger. Anger includes feelings of irritability, frustration, road rage and violence. Depth therapy also helps you gain insight to the deeper roots of anger that may have accumulated over many years. We look at triggers and how to slow down your reactions via mindfulness, breathing and self-awareness. Learning how to deescalate anger improves communication with loved ones, friends, children and coworkers.

Anger is a luxury that you may not be able to afford. There are many types of anger. The type I specialize in is the kind that is turned inward, leading to depression and anxiety. This sort of anger may not even seem like anger most of the time. But it is a joy killer, and it leads to such unhappy emotions as envy and jealousy, sadness and desperation. If you are feeling anger and do not know how to express it, you may wish to engage in therapy in order to learn safe and productive ways to handle your anger, no matter what it's source.

Dietmar Brinkmann, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Half Moon Bay, CA

Anger management is about tracking stress and frustration as they build up in your body. You identify your triggers to avoid angry blowups and relax instead. You learn communication and assertiveness without aggressive behavior. These skills can do the trick but for many of my clients it is hard to remember new skills in the heat of the moment. With understanding of the physiology of anger, I give you tools to master your powerful life energy and develop a concrete strategy to transform anger. You can discover with honesty and self-compassion what makes anger your default reaction in so many situations. By realizing what is underneath it all you can avoid being caught in the anger trap.

I have extensive experience working with men who are struggling with their anger management. Oftentimes, such men come to see me because the way they are experiencing and expressing their anger is causing serious damage to their relationships, either at home or on the job. Ironically, such men often feel simultaneously disconnected from and ineffectual in their sense of personal power. I help men access their own vulnerability as a way to start feeling what is behind the ineffective expressions of anger and rage. From there, men can begin to reclaim a more true and embodied sense of their strength and power, one that is far more connected with the heart.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

I help men and teens who are struggling with anger management, transform their lives. You will benefit from psychotherapy by 1) learning to control your emotions in the moment, and 2) reducing your vulnerability to becoming overwhelmed and destructively angry in the first place. Relying on more than 10 years experience working with men, I will teach you how to monitor your state of physiological arousal so that you can intervene before you lose control. I will also help you explore the origins of your anger, in other words, where you "learned" to be angry in the first place. Gradually, you will gain a sense of emotional freedom and power as you increase your control and self-awareness.

Are you constantly having the same arguments with important people in your life? Do you regret things that you have said or done while angry? I approach my clients with tremendous respect and an understanding that anger is a very important messenger emotion that seeks to move us towards necessary change in our lives. I can help you develop the skills you need to re-establish a helpful relationship with anger and to use this emotion in a productive way in your life rather than being controlled and overwhelmed by it.

ANGER....something that we all have negative (if not traumatic) experience with. We are taught from a young age that it is no o.k. to feel or express anger. Unfortunately, simply because we ignore or suppress does not mean that it disappears. If left unacknowledged, it remains in our minds, hearts, and bodies. Further, the inappropriate expression of (or LACK of healthy expression) can cause severe damage to our most cherished relationships. Therapy is the ideal place for articulating, as well as learning how to effectively express, our anger. Remember, anger is only an internal alarm system telling us that something needs attention. It's what we do with it that matters.

It's no secret that, when you're angry, it's tough to concentrate and make reasonable decisions. It's a lot easier to act impulsively and yell. If you are experiencing difficulty in managing your anger, you know how much stress this puts on you, your relationships, and perhaps even your job. Maybe you already know what sets you off and you just want to know how to manage your reactions to whatever is triggering your anger. Maybe it's hard to understand your anger and what causes you to fly off the handle and you want help figuring it out so that you can feel more in control of your emotions. I will help you to understand your anger and give you concrete tips for managing it.

My approach to anger management involves encouragement of mindful attention, acceptance of the full range of emotions, calming exercises, self-compassion, and cultivation of a nuanced perspective which goes beyond an all-or-nothing/mutually exclusive understanding of one's inner and outer worlds. De-escalation and distraction techniques are taught for self-soothing and to avoid conflict, and non-violent communication is utilized as a tool for clear and open social exchange.

There is a difference between healthy anger and triggered over-the-top anger, where a survival instinct has hijacked the person’s rational brain so they cannot see there is no actual threat. I coach client’s to take time away from the source of anger to get their frontal lobes back on line. We then look at what is below the iceberg cap, and heal that. I also help people to not take things so personally, and to remain grounded.

Anger can, especially be, a difficult problem for men. Most men are not able to easily identify their emotions nor describe them in words. Men have enormous difficult feeling the subtlety of their anger. They often feel nothing or rage. Healthy anger management requires us to be aware of how we are feeling. We also need to calm ourselves down, in other words - regulate our feelings. Using Affect Management Skills Training, you will have the opportunity to learn how to apply the basic skills to become the person you hope to be. When we are able to regulate our feelings in a healthy way, our relationships change.

Rightful anger has an important place in life where and when it must be expressed. However, there are many forms of anger that are internally destructive and can become externally dangerous to ourselves and others. Some forms of anger come from long term contentious relationships and occurrences which can never go away or decrease in pain and agitation. Some forms of anger are explosive on the moment and other anger comes as a gradual escalating irritation that then reaches its limits. Counseling serves to teach skills of anger management and can defuse and even prevent out of control anger from erupting. Counseling is known to be very effective for addressing and safely controlling anger.

Anger is a healthy instinctual emotion. But it can be very destructive if it isn't managed and you are consciously aware and mindful of this part of yourself. Often we have learned to bury our instinctual anger response because our culture teaches us it is bad. Anger can be scary and even life-threatening if it's directed at you. This is a universal response. Often, because we bury our anger or haven't learned how to manage it in a healthy way, it comes out in ways that are incredibly harmful. I can help you have a new, healthier experience of your anger so that you can stay connected to people in your life and keep yourself safe from doing harmful things that could ruin your life.

A lot of people "bottle and blow," not saying what they want to say a bunch of times and then blowing up. So a big part of managing anger has to do with finding better ways to get what you want. There are also helpful strategies for containing your impulse to blow up, so it doesn't get away from you and make things worse. Lots of people think that it's good to "blow off steam," but in fact we have clear data that "venting" anger actually makes you more angry!

My approach to anger is to understand first the severity, triggers, and what functions a person's anger is supposed to serve. For example, if it is protective anger; that type of anger is usually displayed when a person is feeling hurt, vulnerable, or distrustful. More than likely, protective anger is one that occurred as a result of childhood trauma or even trauma as an adult (e.g. emotional, physical, or sexual abuse). Once I understand where the anger is coming from and it's purpose, the next step would be to work on coping skills for anger such as cognitive behavioral therapy or the "5 second light rule." I practice how to use these strategies with you in the office in specific scenarios

Anger is an emotion that is generally not allowed in our culture. It is something that we tend to either avoid or overuse. The first step is awareness and taking ownership of what feelings belong to you and why. The second step is to find healthy ways to release the anger. And thirdly, therapy can help you express your feelings in a healthy format so that you can take better care of yourself and be the person you truly are.
