Anger is both a natural and necessary emotion. It is a vital part of our preservation instinct. But when your anger causes troubles--say at work, in relationships, to your health-- it becomes critical that you develop new ways to address anger: methods that help decrease how frequently or intensely you get angry, and that lead to more effective responses to anger. Dr. Goldstein addresses anger from a realistic, practical perspective that can help you enjoy a healthier, more constructive approach to your life in the face of anger.

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.

Anger is said to be a secondary emotion and yet it is so prevalent in many of our lives. People struggling with Anger and the havoc that it causes in ones life can be destructive to an individual or family system. Individuals will look at the differences between rational and irrational thought. Identify for themselves what happens to their body that sends the message they are angry before doing something they regret. They will learn different coping strategies to manage the intensity of their emotions so that anger no longer rules their life.

I work with the client in regards to current anger, past history of anger, and family history of anger. I work with the client to identify current stress, and to especially identify emotions including sadness, fear, confusion, and to identify coping skills to either work with family members, a boss, or co-workers. I feel that improving communication skills, problem solving skills, and developing a strong support network are vital to better understand and work regarding anger in a healthy, non-threatening way.

Anger is a natural emotion everyone experiences. Anger can even have purpose: to bring us to action during injustice or even to protect others from harm. If however, anger escalates and hurts others emotionally or physically therapy is needed. I have heard clients say, "it's in my genes", or "so and so makes me so mad...". Perhaps, but truth is, there is never a good reason to let anger take control our lives. Relationships suffer, and often we hurt the people we love. My approach to therapy is to help you find balance. We will look at what your triggers , where, when anger is most present, how it affects you physically. Together, we find the tools you need to find a healthier way.

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.

Healthy anger is intended to communicate a problem in relationship that needs attention. It is intended to say this is important take it seriously. Many people think of anger as the blaming, yelling, controlling behavior that is destructive to relationships, and prevents healthy communication. Those with a genuine desire to change can learn to manage their feelings in healthy ways that build rather then destroy relationships. I work with clients to help them identify and manage their feelings and needs and direct their actions toward self-confidence, and empathy for others.

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.
