Are you concerned that your angry feelings or behavior may be impacting you or the people you care most about? Maybe it is small things that get to you more than you think they should, or perhaps you find yourself having a short fuse with your intimate partner or co-workers? I specialize in creating a steady and supportive space for you to learn about and perhaps change your relationship to anger, how you behave and how you feel as you move through the world.

A lot of people "bottle and blow," not saying what they want to say a bunch of times and then blowing up. So a big part of managing anger has to do with finding better ways to get what you want. There are also helpful strategies for containing your impulse to blow up, so it doesn't get away from you and make things worse. Lots of people think that it's good to "blow off steam," but in fact we have clear data that "venting" anger actually makes you more angry!

More than 20 years ago, I had an "Anger Management" problem. I know what it is like to try to keep it under control to only find myself saying cruel things I wish I didn't say. It destroyed a relationship. However, that inspired me to learn how to deal with my anger in a healthy way. I was highly motivated; it took me less than 12 sessions. If you struggle with your anger, we will come up with real strategies that help you pay attention to what is going on in your body so we can prevent the angry outbursts from happening. You may need somebody who can challenge you and keep you in check while at the same time not judging you. Your next step is to call me to make an appointment.

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.

Your anger turned towards yourself creates depression, but your anger towards others creates resentment. Do you find yourself vacillating between feeling depressed and resentful towards yourself or others in your life? Learning how to deal with your anger is the first step to get you out of that cycle. Counseling along with Mindfulness Meditation are great tools to help you manage anger and find more peace.

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 can be incredibly difficult to manage - especially if you are not ready to significantly redefine yourself. Beyond strategies for avoiding anger inducing circumstances, and reducing the intensity, frequency and duration of our angry feelings, we must come to terms with our own ego, or sense of self. That part of us that feels wounded, harmed, and/or threatened and must be defended. If you are genuinely ready to redirect that anger energy, face yourself in the mirror, and manage that part of yourself that is causing you and those you love to suffer, let's get to work.

Anger has both harmful and healthy/constructive potential depending on how it is dealt with. If you are coming to therapy for anger management, you are probably experiencing anger as interfering with your relationships, your work, or your general wellbeing. Sometimes a propensity towards anger signals that other things may be going on--stress, shame, or other feelings that may be hard to tolerate. In an atmosphere of acceptance and non judgment, we will work with mindfulness to build tolerance for a wider range of feelings, to find ease and to uncover the gems hidden beneath reactive anger.

I use cognitive behavioral techniques to help my clients to identify the thinking that leads to their feelings and behaviors. I then work my my clients collaboratively to examine the evidence for that thinking, then explore different perspectives and change the thoughts into more helpful ones that reduce the feelings of anger, making them more manageable.

Anger in itself is not a bad thing. It is a feeling and feelings are there for a reason. You can manage your frustrations without losing control of yourself. In my work with you, you will learn your personal signs and symptoms of anger and catch yourself before you reach that point of no return. "My anger outbursts and destructive behavior seem to come from nowhere!" This is not true. You can learn the root cause, slow it down and have control over your life again. You will learn how to be assertive instead of being aggressive.

Anger when used appropriately can be a useful tool to give us the aggressive energy we need to take action when we are feeling helpless or victimized. Unfortunately, it is often misused and becomes abusive, creating whole new problems for relationships and careers. I work with clients to first learn to control their emotional expressions, define the underlying feelings creating the hostility, and learn new skills to better utilize their feelings to resolve conflict in more adult ways.

Expression of anger is often the gateway to reaching underlying feelings of pain, such as hurt. In therapy - with both individuals and couples - I help angry persons stay connected to their upset feelings and express them in a way that strengthens relationships. When we have the courage to share the painful feelings with persons we trust, we experience increased self-confidence and deeper intimacy. If you have repetitive EXPLOSIVE anger, which is emotionally harmful or physically dangerous, I urge you to find an anger management group, where participants work together to gain control over these behaviors, before seeking therapy with me.

Angry outbursts usually reflect an autonomic nervous system that is dysregulated from unresolved trauma and accumulated stress response. Not only do I work with you to give you new tools and ways to put a stop sign between the stimulus and your anger reponse, but using the tools of Somatic Experiencing we can actually discharge that fight or flight energy that is backed up behind the dam waiting to explode. This will leave you feeling calm and well regulated in the face of daily stresses and encounters.

When things don't go your way, do you uncontrollably lash out with anger? When anger is unchecked, it can cause problems in relationships, at work, and affect your health negatively. Counseling can help you understand your anger and teach you how to channel it in a healthy way. You can learn new ways of responding to difficult situations and people that does not harm yourself, your relationships, or others. Give me a call to schedule an initial consultation.

Clients often identify "anger" as a primary concern on counseling intake forms. So many of us struggle with anger because it occurs in response to so many life experiences and we are rarely taught how to appropriately communicate about it. Anger, and the way we express it, often leaves us with negative consequences that impact our lives at home and at work. The reality about anger is that it is often a secondary emotion...a reaction to hurt and pain. Cognitive therapy can help identify what thoughts and events trigger our anger. Once we can identify the triggers we can learn to be more conscious and active in choosing how we will respond to them.

Anger is one feeling that seems to come up readily when we are hurt, feel misunderstood, feel hopeless, or wronged. Anger in itself is not a bad thing. It is an emotion like all others, but how we find resources, who we turn to, having someone to talk to, and then deciding what to do, can be helpful. Anger can be a useful tool if we can understand what has triggered us and what to do about it in ways that are not self destructive. I offer a safe place to explore all the feelings surrounding anger so that it starts to feel like something you have a choice in expressing the way you want to.
