Anger is a natural emotion which can sweep over you quickly like wild thunderstorm. Maybe you feel like an exploding volcano when you are angry. The emotion of anger comes in many forms. It may be like an earthquake that rumbles under the skin causing thoughts of revenge and resentment. You can learn tools to help manage the behavior that erupts from anger. Learning you have choices to harness the power of anger so it becomes a useful energy rather than a destructive emotion is the goal of treatment. I can help you develop strategies that are effective in helping you make wise choices for yourself. Learn new behaviors with practice and a plan.

Anger is a natural human emotion but being chronically angry is not healthy. How one reacts to stressors is based on how they think and feel. Through psychotherapy and coaching you will learn the mechanics of responding vs reacting. If there are family of origin issues that are residues of the past, the relationship between your anger then and your anger now will be examined. You will also explore the hurt that underlies the anger and learn tools that will assist you in controlling and resolving your anger once and for all.

I am not a certified anger management clinician, nor do I work with court mandated anger cases or domestic violence. My practice in anger management involves learning to understand, regulate, and safely and productively express emotions, including anger. I have worked with people individually and in groups who have found it difficult to control their emotions, especially anger. We learn ways to control impulsive and destructive behaviors. We also learn the psychology of anger and emotions. We learn to recognize what triggers our anger and strong emotios and how to tell the difference between productive and healthy emotional responses and ones that would hurt us or someone else.

Anger can be very difficult to manage. Anger lies very deep within a person. No one wants to be angry. We just get so used to it we don’t know any other way to feel. Our society teaches us it is better to be angry then to have other emotions. That is simply not right. Sucking it up or powering through does not get a person through anger. So many people do what they are supposed to do to help with anger. They run, lift weights, eat right, work hard, take vacations, etc. Yet, we’re still angry. It’s something deeper. Sometimes so deep it’s hard to remember how and when it started. How did it get this far? Have you ever gotten angry with you anger? I believe I can help with that.

Anger issues are complex. Anger management may need to address a combination of struggles with anxiety, impulse control, social anxiety, relationship issues, and social skills. There is often much more to contend with. I do not believe in short-term anger management in most cases, given these complexities. To be free of the loss of control that can come with anger issues, the client needs to leave therapy being able to see the world as a safer and more manageable place.

Anger is one of the most challenging emotions to face in oneself and others. It can be the source of great shame, violence, and pain & yet it is valid and important. In working with your anger, we will let it express itself SAFELY and at a pace that feels appropriate for you. I utilize expressive therapy, breath work, talking self-inquiry, and EMDR to help you get to the root of your anger so that it can find completion without harming yourself or others any longer. Thoughts & behaviors that stem from envy, revenge and aggression STOP & a MORE COMPASSIONATE YOU takes the wheel. Old resentments & hurts will dissipate and you will find yourself freed up to feel relief and peace instead.

Anger is an outward manifestation of underlying emotions; such as sadness, loneliness, shame, sorrow, grief, confusion, indecision, disempowerment, frustration, etc. By helping you get clear about your underlying emotions you become more in control of what emotional behaviors you communicate to other, especially those you love. This is not a long therapy process, it’s a brief clarification of self exploration, getting clear on what’s going on within you and finding ways to share these emotions safely with others.

Anger is a HOT emotion that is intense to experience and offensive to others, however, its still a valid emotion. My approach to anger management is to help you get to the underlying emotions triggering anger. There are also helpful tools and coping skills that you can learn and practice in order to make practical changes to how you manage anger. I will help you understand your triggers, physical body sensations and develop effective skills to feel anger but not react to it.

Anger management counseling can help to identify stressors and learn the steps to stay calm in the face of anger. The goal is to handle tense situations in more constructive and positive ways by reducing the emotional and physical arousal that anger can cause. It will provide the tools to take back your life and resolve the triggers that result in unplanned anger reactions.

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.

Anger in and of itself is not a bad thing---it's what we do with it that counts. If you find that your anger has impacted your relationships or day to day life, or you find it difficult to control or manage, I can help. I believe anger management is about self-understanding, coping skills, communication and responsibility. I also believe it is about getting a better sense of the other emotions underneath the anger (i.e., hurt) that can fuel or maintain it. I enjoy working with people as they negotiate a different relationship with their anger, and learn how to empower themselves in a more healthy and mindful fashion.

I see my work with clients as working more with rage than anger. We all carry rage within us from wounds, unwanted intrusions, and deep isolation that don't get addressed, seen or appreciated. Rage happens deep within. It drives anger, irritation, passive aggression and secondary emotions of rage. My approach is to help you get in touch with the things that get you angry and begin to find out what else is there. I work on the practical level of everyday thinking and behaviors, the psychosomatic level of emotions and buried feelings, and the spiritual level which often connects to not feeling welcome in the world. We'll also work on healthy aggression and how to communicate authentically.
