Anger is a completely normal, usually healthy, human emotion unless it gets out of control and turns destructive. This leads to problems—problems at work, in your personal relationships, and in the overall quality of your life. I work with clients to help them take back control of their emotions. We start by identifying the feelings attached to anger to uncover ways to express these emotions without causing harm to relationships.

I will help you adopt a more composed style, one where you can communicate your thoughts without becoming confrontational. I’ll assist you in harnessing your positive traits and in applying them to managing your anger. In our sessions, we’ll discuss that anger is more of a secondary emotion to more primary feelings such as fear, guilt, shame, powerlessness, or sadness. Together, we will identify the triggers that upset you, so that you can be more self-aware and develop coping skills. Reducing anger will improve your self-image, patience, interactions with family and career success, while reducing health issues such as headache and backaches. Contact me to discuss how counseling can work for you.

Anger is an emotion that sometimes gets a bad rap! Anger is not bad; it's what you do with it that is sometimes bad. Anger Management has many different approaches. I believe it is finding the strategies or tools that work for the individual; or looking at what the deeper issue is that is fueling the anger. What is really behind the anger? Sadness? Fear? Grief? Exploring different avenues can bring a person to a different place with their anger.

Issues with controlling anger have to do with impulse control. This is an issue of development, and suggests that those people who can't control their anger haven't successfully negotiated frustration tolerance early in life. Often, this failure has to do with difficulties that parents themselves had with the issue, as well as parental inadequacies with regard to tenderness and soothing, major ingredients that help establish emotional security and self esteem. I will help you explore the "red zones," the places your brain goes to when life issues trigger you to behave reflexively rather than thoughtfully, and to visualize consequences before taking action. www.ThriveTherapydoc.com

Anger is often triggered by an underlying emotion such as sadness, disappointment but comes out in a way that protects these feelings. Some anger can be healthy; as in being angry enough at a growing waistline to sign up for the gym or speaking up when boundaries get crossed over and over. Through using cognitive behavioral therapy and mindfulness techniques, clients can learn to communicate in ways that meet their needs and still respect the needs of others.

In my practice I help clients explore, in a safe environment, the source of their anger. I supply various tools to help when anger emerges that allow alternative strategies to deal with every day life stresses and people. Having tools promotes healthy personal relationships and a happier more satisfying, sucessful life. Venues such as spirituality, meditation, writing and continuing with counseling when needed. This is a safe place for compassion and understanding.

I know a secret about people that are angry. They are also people that are hurting. They are in pain and they never learned how to express their anger in a productive way. That is where I come in. I teach you step by step how to get rid of old patterns that are damaging your relationships at home and perhaps at work. You are not a bad person. You are just a person who is hurting and never learned how to express anger in a grown-up way. I will teach you how to tame your "anger beast" so that you can get on with your life. I like to think of myself as an expert at this! I have helped a lot of people with their anger problems. Lets get started.
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.
