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 a legitimate emotion, signifying injustice in some area of our lives. As with all emotions, anger can be effective or it can be ineffective. Often, ineffective anger is a cultural or gender issue; men frequently use anger to appear powerful when they might be afraid or in pain. Women frequently stuff anger because they have been taught that "nice girls don't get angry." I can help you understand your anger, and process it effectively so that any consequences of your anger are positive rather than negative.

One of the first steps to dealing with anger is learning to react to life realistically by addressing unrealistic expectations. If you come to accept that frustration is normal, you will be better prepared emotionally things don't go your way. It is also important to discover whether a part of you is overreacting based on a similar event from your past. Maybe it's unresolved issues from a past relationship or bitterness at a family member who hurt you when you were younger. Whatever it is, I can help you address the root cause and teach you how to respond appropriately.

We all feel angry from time to time. It is a natural human emotion. But expressing anger in a way that hurts other people can damage relationships and careers, cause financial and legal problems, and even damage our health. Anger management can be learned. You must learn to identify the triggers, thoughts and feelings that lead to the inappropriate expression of anger. You must learn new, more effective coping responses for when you get angry. Assertive communication patterns will help you get your needs met while respecting the needs of others. Learning effective anger management techniques will help you de-escalate volatile situations, lower your stress, and improve your relationships!

Anger can be a symptom of underlying resentment and trauma. I believe that to resolve and manage anger, a person needs to identify resentments. Resolving trauma can also assist in decreasing anger. To manage anger, healthy coping skills can be utilized. If you have issues with managing your anger, you can benefit from therapeutic intervention. Betrayed partners particularly struggle with managing their anger.

Can you go from 0-100 in exploding with anger? Is it hard to "keep it together" during crucial moments in your life? Can you keep your cool for "most of the time, but then watch out!"? Do you feel like a ticking time bomb? Are you open to exploring what is beneath all that rage? What sets you off and why? What negative self-defeating thoughts are racing through your mind? I invite you to explore these answers with me to gain self-control and ride the wave of anger flare-ups.

Counselor for Men and Couples

I specialize in helping men, and anger management is one of the things that guys struggle with most. For most men, we either stuff our anger and let it fester, and then usually explode when it has built up to a point that it can't be pushed down anymore. It's like a pressure cooker. I work with men to help cool their anger, and come up with other tools and outlets for their natural expression of anger. Also, for some men, depression is an inverted form of anger expression, and I work with is meant to help give a voice to their quiet suffering. I work with angry and depressed guys in the greater Phoenix, Arizona area.

Anger has been called a “secondary emotion”. This is because sometimes, though not always, it masks other deeper and more vulnerable emotions such as sadness and fear. Excessive anger is often the result of unresolved hurt and trauma that has not been fully processed and healed. Another source can be ineffective communication skills that leave one frustrated in relationships. Anger can also be the result of untreated depression, anxiety, or bipolar disorder. My clients receive a comprehensive evaluation considering all possible sources of the anger, to treat it at its source, as well as learn techniques and behavior modification to deal with it constructively when it arises.
