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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.
