Anger Management

Josie Valderrama, Psy.D


842 California Street, San Francisco, CA 94108

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.

Anger is a natural part of our emotional landscape but if you find that you are feeling angry more than you would like and/or you have difficulty expressing your anger in healthy ways I can help you. My style is warm and collaborative and I will provide a safe and reliable space for us to explore your anger.

Are you overwhelmed by anger? Is this emotion wreaking havoc in your life? Do you find that anger builds up quickly and overtakes your ability to function? 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.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of San Francisco, 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.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

45 Franklin Street, San Francisco, CA 94102

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

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

San Francisco, CA 94101

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.

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.

I work with individuals who are making efforts to control their anger and bring more calm and peace into their everyday lives. When looking at anger issues, I find my clients need to first address bodily symptoms and then use tools when these symptoms arise. I also feel it is useful to use cognitive behavioral therapy to identify the negative thought patterns and beliefs which initially contribute to the development of anger.

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.
