Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor

Anger that is out of control can hurt our relationships and work lives. With self-awareness, you can learn to be in control of your anger - not the other way around. I can teach you to become aware of your anger, including bodily sensations, thoughts, and feelings. We'll identify triggers and help you create some space between the trigger and your reaction to it. Through awareness, you can make a choice about how to respond. Anger is often a result of stress, so we'll also work on reducing and managing your stress. Through our anger management work, you'll have better relationships, less conflict, and a greater sense of calm.

Your anger is an attempt at reclaiming power and control. The problem is that when others feel victimized in some way by your angry outbursts, they naturally become defensive and perhaps angry as well. I can help you find more effective ways of expressing yourself and getting your needs met. Underneath the angry feelings are the vulnerable feelings of fear or hurt. Once these are acknowledged and cared for, either by yourself or another, there is movement towards ease and contentment. I can help you slow down the powerful reactions, and get to the core so that you find your real needs and your abilities to connect healthfully with others.

Anger is an unpopular emotion. Most of us dislike feeling it or being in its presence. It is particularly unpleasant because, with anger, there may be a loss of control. In spite of the bad PR surrounding anger, it can be an important signal to tell us something's not right. I help people become more conscious of their thoughts, feelings, and blind spots around anger so they feel a greater sense of control over it (rather than vice-versa). I also assist people on alternative ways to communicate so they can express what is really bothering them and increase the likelihood of being heard and understood

When you struggle with anger, it is hard to imagine that you could control it rather than it control you. Anger erupts, seemingly without warning. It causes you to lose opportunities and damages your relationships. It hurts those you love and need and, most of all, it hurts you. You don't like when you lose control. You are left with awful feelings - guilt, shame, remorse, or more anger. It fills your mind and your gut. In the end, you feel alone. You want to change and you need help. Therapy can provide a way to betterment. It is a way to work confidentially with someone who understands anger and can help you make lasting changes. Get peace inside and out. Make a call today.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

San Jose, CA 95111

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 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

Anger is normal and healthy and can actually help you, yet for most it’s about the mis-management and mis-understanding of anger that causes problems; so anger is not really the problem, it’s not fully understanding what it’s about and what can be done differently. Anger is generally about unresolved hurt and pain, expectations and needs not getting met, and having non-acceptance to certain parts of reality. Anger can be complicated as it can also entail unresolved grief, stress, depression, and anxiety. The hope is that you can gain clarity and discover healthier ways of coping and responding to what is causing the anger.

I will help you meet your anger with compassion. You will thus strengthen the systems in your brain and body that soothe and calm, gaining greater control over your mood and behavior. I will also help you make peace with the painful life experiences that underlie most damaging displays of anger. When present circumstances no longer trigger past hurts, your daily path changes from minefield to simple city sidewalk or country lane. Equally important, I will help you find and reinforce all that is good in you and others. You will come to experience your self and your world as more caring, more kind, and more safe. Whether you desire change in yourself or others, I can help.
