San Francisco, California

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 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 management is about tracking stress and frustration as they build up in your body. You identify your triggers to avoid angry blowups and relax instead. You learn communication and assertiveness without aggressive behavior. These skills can do the trick but for many of my clients it is hard to remember new skills in the heat of the moment. With understanding of the physiology of anger, I give you tools to master your powerful life energy and develop a concrete strategy to transform anger. You can discover with honesty and self-compassion what makes anger your default reaction in so many situations. By realizing what is underneath it all you can avoid being caught in the anger trap.

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.

Robert Nemerovski, Psy.D.

Licensed Psychologist

Anger is a normal human emotion that warns us that something is being done to us that is threatening, unjust, or gets in the way of getting our needs met. Of course, we can become angry at ourselves for a variety of reasons. Anger by nature is not a “problem” nor does it always require “anger management.” Unfortunately, for many people, anger can become a problem and ruin their relationships, careers, and lives. I help people for whom anger has become a problem through developing behavioral and emotional self-awareness, understanding about triggers and underlying causes, and effective coping skills (aka “tools”) that can help them manage their anger reactions in more constructive ways.

Are you overwhelmed by anger? Is this emotion wreaking havoc in your life? Do you find that anger builds up quickly and overtakes your ability to function? Are you constantly having the same arguments with important people in your life? Do you regret things that you have said or done while angry? I approach my clients with tremendous respect and an understanding that anger is a very important messenger emotion that seeks to move us towards necessary change in our lives. I can help you develop the skills you need to re-establish a helpful relationship with anger and to use this emotion in a productive way in your life rather than being controlled and overwhelmed by it.

Anger is a healthy instinctual emotion. But it can be very destructive if it isn't managed and you are consciously aware and mindful of this part of yourself. Often we have learned to bury our instinctual anger response because our culture teaches us it is bad. Anger can be scary and even life-threatening if it's directed at you. This is a universal response. Often, because we bury our anger or haven't learned how to manage it in a healthy way, it comes out in ways that are incredibly harmful. I can help you have a new, healthier experience of your anger so that you can stay connected to people in your life and keep yourself safe from doing harmful things that could ruin your life.

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 work with individuals who are making efforts to control their anger and bring more calm and peace into their everyday lives. When looking at anger issues, I find my clients need to first address bodily symptoms and then use tools when these symptoms arise. I also feel it is useful to use cognitive behavioral therapy to identify the negative thought patterns and beliefs which initially contribute to the development of anger.

Talk therapy releases some of the tension of anger. Anger includes feelings of irritability, frustration, road rage and violence. Depth therapy also helps you gain insight to the deeper roots of anger that may have accumulated over many years. We look at triggers and how to slow down your reactions via mindfulness, breathing and self-awareness. Learning how to deescalate anger improves communication with loved ones, friends, children and coworkers.
