Anger is a natural, normal emotion, it is even healthy for us to react with anger when someone threatens us or our dignity. But rage is dangerous to everyone. I instruct my clients in identifying triggers, making a plan for when a "button" is pushed. I believe in developing strategies to manage anger productively and prevent explosive episodes in the future. I discuss relaxation techniques, cognitive strategies to reframe situations, and communication techniques. I employ various homework assignments for clients to process anger. We also explore the origins of anger, so often tied in with loss or emotional pain, and talk about striving for acceptance and forgiveness.

Anger is one of our fundamental emotions, part of the basic machinery of our mind and personality. In some ways it is a useful tool that helps to motivate and energize us in seeking fairness and justice in the world around us. But this powerful hold-over from our primal history can also be enormously destructive if we lose control of it. If your anger is slipping out of your control and you find yourself saying or doing things that damage your reputation or your relationships, hurt those around you, or otherwise consistently put you on the outside of society's expectations for behavior, you need help to find tools or strategies to change this and I would be happy to help.

Here at My True Temperament Christian Counseling, LLC, we teach anger management skills through the lens of the Bible and also teach better communication skills and relaxation techniques. Anger is a natural emotion which more often than not is a signal that something in the client's environment isn't working. We discuss with the client what upsets him/her and we try and eliminate it. During the anger management therapeutic process, we remind all our clients about the importance of keeping a sense of humor.

God created us with the capacity for anger, and for good reason. Through anger, we strive to protect our worth, get needs met, and maintain the beliefs we hold on to as important. The Bible tells us to be angry; yet, not to sin in our anger (Psalm 4:4). How is such a thing even possible? KCM offers a comprehensive approach to anger management.

At Home or Private Discreet Intensives

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.
