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.

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.

"Sticks and stones will break my bones, but your words will break my heart." Many people with anger issues know the damage that can be done to a relationship with even one outburst. Mastering anger is necessary to having the affection and trust of the people we care about. It has been accurately referred to as 'restraint of pen and tongue' in some literature. While it may seem like an effort one undertakes for others, the primary benefits are to the person who handles their anger. If you are reading this, and the thought "I wouldn't get angry if so-and-so didn't do such-and-such" consider yourself a primary candidate for this work. Discovering how to escape from anger will set you free.

I work with anger management for anger that is not physically abusive and not required by the courts. We will look at the root causes - is this a way that you keep others at bay? Are there other ways to cope with anger? Is this an approach to conflict that you learned in your family? We will talk about your thoughts, experiences, and expectations regarding conflicts. I will help you to understand and articulate the cause your anger so that you are less likely to feel out of control.
Kevin Fleming Ph.D.
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.

I work with individuals whose anger, a normal healthy emotion, has become out of control, destructive, and has begun or continues to dominate all aspects of their lives. Whether you feel your anger is just there below the surface all the time or if you don’t feel it at all until it erupts and you are flooded by it, I can help you gain more control. I offer a safe, nonjudgmental environment where we will identify your triggers, underlying issues, and work towards strategies that will help you gain more confidence in handling your anger, allowing your reactions to be an appropriate response to a normal emotion.

Anger and hostility as an orientation manifests in many different ways. It is easy to judge harshly because it shows up as threatening, controlling and socially unacceptable, making it impossible to understand let alone forgive. Yet the underlying anxiety, deep hurt and pervasive shame is protected by the anger response and it never gets dealt with. After all, to have shame is, well, shameful. The cycle continues, escalates to rage, abuse or acting out, and substance abuse often follows as a way of numbing the perpetual regrets. The solution: a safe context that fosters awareness, responsibility, trust, and willingness to release the anger in order to get in on and heal the deeper feelings.
