When you want something and you can’t get it or when you’ve had enough and it keeps coming you get frustrated and then angry. This is a natural emotional response that if not managed can really damage relationships. There are a few acquirable attitudes and skills that will enable you to recognize when anger arises, calm down and communicate your wants in a productive way. Many years of working with families involved in domestic violence and individuals whose anger has damaged themselves and others have given me some tools that people find user friendly and can help you deal with frustration without hurting the important people in your life.

Anger is an incredibly powerful and motivating emotion. However, when anger isn't properly managed and contained it can become like a buring enferno that destroys everything in its path from family relationships to carrer opportunities. I work with clients to address their agner on two levels. The first level involves developing basic skills that help the client control their behavior when experiencing anger. The second level involves assisting the client in identifying the primary source of their anger, which may be rooted in other emotions or painful life experiences. When these root issues are successfully dealt with, much of the anger that has been so debilitating tends to subside.

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.

Anger comes from a desire to not feel fear or pain. When anger behavior gets out of control it damages our relationships and corrodes our self-image. This creates more pain and fear. So anger keeps going. I use present-based approaches (mindfulness) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to deal with anger. When we learn to pay attention to the present moment, we become aware of negative thought patterns and then are able to let go of them. We stop feeding the fear and pain. CBT helps change behaviors directly. Compassion, patience and honesty are hallmarks of my work. My goal is to help you manage your anger, so you are able to bring the joy of relationships back into your life.

If you are suffering from inappropriate use of anger and it is threatening relationships with people YOU love—family, friendship, at work – do not lose hope.
Anger is a tool. Think of it as a hammer. You may be using a hammer to clean a counter instead of a sponge. I will help you identify when the anger tool is called for and how best to use it. Used correctly, anger can: protect us from harm, help us get our needs met, and prevent us from despairing.
In anger therapy your anger does not need to vanish. However, the wrong tool is being used. You have many others. I will help you find and use them.

If you have been confronted by others that you have a "problem with anger", it certainly is worth taking a look. What most people don't know, is that those struggling with anger management are most often merely reacting to stress, anxiety, shame, fear, or depression. In men, depression is often experienced more as irritability than as sadness. While you may not know how to make the change others are asking for, be assured that with the right help, you certainly can make very meaningful change, and enjoy the result. Don't for a moment think that controlling your anger means you don't get to be heard. You will enjoy the experience of really being heard and respected.

Anger can control our lives and destroy relationships. Often anger is an emotional response to unmet needs in our lives, sometimes beginning from when we were children. I work with my clients to help them recognize their unmet needs, the source of their anger, and to identify the different kinds of anger they may be experiencing. At the same time, we work to together in a safe and non-judgmental environment to learn how to manage anger, focusing on one's own responsibility and building a healthy sense of self.

Treatment for Anger Management usually comes when others find the client’s anger offensive and the client is asked to change. Often people become angry when they feel betrayed, disrespected, rejected, abandoned, or afraid. Therapy allows clients to delve into the nature of their anger and gain a greater understanding of what it is that is triggering their responses to a situation. Feeling angry much of the time is an indicator that the person doesn’t feel that she is getting her needs met. Exploring the reality of this feeling is an important step towards moving to getting more of her needs met in the present and also processing old (childhood) unmet needs. I assist clients in this area.
