Anger is never just anger at face value. Oftentimes it is a "secondary emotion"--the visible tip of the iceberg. It is common for our fears, frustration, hurt, vulnerability, and sadness to manifest as anger. There are many useful tools and insight-oriented interventions that can help manage our distress, improve communication and relationship functioning, and positively impact how we view and care for ourselves. You deserve to be heard and validated in ways that are respectful and productive. I can help you achieve more meaningful communication as we work toward greater understanding of your feelings and needs.

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.

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.

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.

Are you at risk of losing your job or your partner because of your anger? Is your family afraid of you because you seem out of control? Has your anger led to violence or arrests? Anger is a valid emotion that has a bad reputation because of the way it can be expressed. Learn to understand your own anger as well as coping skills that can help you feel more in control. And get to root of your anger. Anger is a complicated emotion that is often protective of a more vulnerable emotion or side of yourself, i.e., fear or sadness. As you learn the skills of self support, you can get your needs met while feeling more in control of yourself and the way you interact with your world as well.

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.

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.
