Anger often stems from deep hurt. I can help you discover the origin of your anger, and in doing so can help you to work on healing the wounds that continue to hurt you and cause you to lash out at others. I can help you learn new coping strategies and healthy outlets for those times when anger seems to control you, and more effective ways to relate to those around you.

Anger is an important emotion, though it often gets a “bad rap” being associated with violence and emotional injury. There is mobilizing empowering energy in anger. It becomes a problem only when it becomes stuck, pent up, and then periodically erupts like a volcano. I assist clients in taking responsibility for the understanding and care of their underlying emotions. Mindfulness is a powerful yet gentle way of developing capacity for productive emotional expression. This kind compassionate practice ultimately leads to greater congruence and authenticity in one’s sense of self.

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.

I teach concrete skills for how to manage difficult feelings like anger. We all get angry sometimes, and often that anger has a purpose and exists to tell us something. Anger is not inherently a bad or negative emotion, contrary to what we often think. The trick is to not let the anger run away with us or control us. We can work together to help you learn and practice new tools for coping with very strong feelings like anger.

Anger management has received a bad rap. Comedic movies, such as Anger Management, have poked fun at the idea and practices. Whether anger is a sign of weakness, or simply a primal human emotion, may be the subject of long debate. Regardless of the source, the expression of anger has become more prevalent and unhealthy as the world has become more stressed, crowded, alienated, and complex. The idea that we should simply "let it all out" and hope that that will solve the problem is ineffective and harmful to all concerned. If anger is destroying your relationships, I'm available to equip you with the techniques which will allow you to tame the beast and take back control.

I provide individual psychotherapy for anger management. Anger is normal emotion that everyone experiences. It becomes a problem when one expresses anger inappropriately or one lacks the proficiency to express any emotions but anger. I use Humanistic and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) to help my clients understand their anger, improve their emotional experience, and express their emotions in healthy ways. A healthy emotional life is the cornerstone of living a full and successful life.

Anger is one of the most subversive and destructive forces in our lives. Anger itself is a natural response when real or perceived harm occurs. However, what is cultivated after that initial response will either free a person to move forward or initiate an emotional condition that will harm the person cultivating anger and those in close proximity to them. Through intentional anger resolution therapy, clients can shed the layers of anger, process the initial set of injuries that generated the anger and free the person to move forward without being tied to the chronic state of unresolved anger.

Often times anger management issues come from feeling like we are not being heard or understood. In the majority of anger management cases I have ever worked with, the anger stemmed from people being unable to communicate needs, frustration, fear, & disappointment in a healthy way. Sometimes anger problems are the result of a history of being hurt by others. In these cases people struggling with anger management become sensitive to any signs that someone might hurt them again, and they develop a quicker, stronger fight/flight response. It is my job to help anger management clients to recognize anger as it is building, create ways to relax and stay calm, & to communicate their needs/emotions.

Rightful anger has an important place in life where and when it must be expressed. However, there are many forms of anger that are internally destructive and can become externally dangerous to ourselves and others. Some forms of anger come from long term contentious relationships and occurrences which can never go away or decrease in pain and agitation. Some forms of anger are explosive on the moment and other anger comes as a gradual escalating irritation that then reaches its limits. Counseling serves to teach skills of anger management and can defuse and even prevent out of control anger from erupting. Counseling is known to be very effective for addressing and safely controlling anger.

Angry words are powerful. Once spoken cannot be taken back. Arguments made in anger is a war in which everyone loses. No minds are changed and relationships are injured and may be lost. A battle to convince another that you are right is futile and communication will not develop because neither is able to hear what the other is trying to say. Choose today to start managing your anger and to get to what's causing the anger to build up.

Every person who has struggled with anger knows that it is a feeling that can be very difficult to control even when you want to. I can help you learn to respond to anger triggers and cues more effectively, and to change how you respond to your angry feelings. The biggest damage occurs when we act on the angry feelings, and I will help you learn to identify and reduce reactivity to those external or internal anger triggers. We all have angry feelings; it's what we do in response to those feelings that contribute to a life of free of needless suffering and emotional injuries.
