Other people can be really thoughtless, rude, & annoying. Sometimes it feels like they deserve our anger. Yet anger comes with a price. We run the risk of losing our relationships with our family & coworkers. We feel embarrassed & ashamed. We wished we could do better, & are angry with ourselves. I use a therapeutic technique that has been shown in research to be the most effective in the treatment of anger problems, cognitive behavioral therapy. I combine this powerful technique with EMDR, Somatic Experiencing to get at the root of your anger problem and help you making meaningful and lasting change. You can feel better. You just need to call. Call 415-820-1487 for a free phone consult.

Do you have trouble naming your triggers? When you become angry, is it difficult for you to take a step back and think before you react? I have found that problems arise when a person reacts immediately when angry instead of taking a moment to think about the possible consequences of their reactions. I work to help clients identify the things that make them angry, notice when their anger begins to form, and slow down their reactionary processes once the anger hits.

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!

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 have extensive experience working with men who are struggling with their anger management. Oftentimes, such men come to see me because the way they are experiencing and expressing their anger is causing serious damage to their relationships, either at home or on the job. Ironically, such men often feel simultaneously disconnected from and ineffectual in their sense of personal power. I help men access their own vulnerability as a way to start feeling what is behind the ineffective expressions of anger and rage. From there, men can begin to reclaim a more true and embodied sense of their strength and power, one that is far more connected with the heart.

Anger is wired into all of us and is essential for survival. It is an intelligent emotion. It can also be incredibly destructive. Most of the time, it is a secondary emotion which means that an unmet need or another emotion is the driving force behind our anger. I will help you to safely identify what is behind your anger and give you tools to effectively regulate it. (I will also help you heal and enhance any relationships previously damaged by your anger.)

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.

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 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.
