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.

Clients from various backgrounds take many different approaches to think about, feel and express anger. However, when anger negatively impacts one’s relationships, it is important to explore what is contributing to an unhealthy experience of anger. In my collaboration with clients, we venture out to explore the conscious and unconscious factors that may need to be brought to light, in the context of perhaps other biopsychosocial (biological, psychological or social) factors that may need attention. Clients who learn to understand, better identify and manage their impulses, cultivate insight and explore opportunities to practice developing skills to have an improved sense of self-mastery.

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.

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.

It is normal to have and feel anger periodically, and it is even an innate part of being human. However, some of us cannot help but express our anger in unhealthy, even damaging ways. I will help you learn to create healthy ways to release your anger and work through it so that it doesn't affect your partner, family and friends. What I will teach you are appropriate ways to catch and release the anger brewing insde of you before it spills over and out in a harmful barage of words or violence.

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.

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.
