Anger is a healthy and normal emotion; it's how we express our anger that can make it problematic in our relationships. Moreover, anger is considered a secondary emotion. This means, there is a more primary emotion that underlies and fuels our anger. Learning to manage our anger in a more productive, healthy and adaptive fashion will first mean identifying the deeper emotions that often remain outside of our awareness. What might be at the core of your anger....fear? hurt? feelings of helplessness or needing to feel heard by your partner?

Has someone told you that you are getting way too stressed out about things?I will help you learn to communicate your thoughts without becoming confrontational. Do you even know what your positive traits are anymore? We’ll discuss them and also that anger is more of a secondary emotion to more primary feelings such as fear, guilt, shame, powerlessness, or sadness. Together, we will identify the triggers that upset you, so that you can be more self-aware and develop coping skills. Reducing anger will improve your self-image, patience, interactions with family and career success, while reducing health issues such as headache and backaches.

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.

Anger can present itself when you least expect it. You can be with family and friends at a school or work outing. You can be on a date and your spouse or significant other does something to set you off. I work with individuals and families in identifying those triggers, exploring the origins and the emotional connections and utilizing cognitive behavioral therapy to address the un-healthy and often off-putting interactions.

Does your anger seem out of control? Is it causing you to regret your actions or the hurt you caused to those around you? Anger is a normal and powerful emotion that everyone experiences. Learning how to express this emotion can be challenging, even when it is justified. However, identifying factors that trigger your anger is an important step in finding the balance and learning how to control your reactions. Together we can develop strategies specific to your triggers and help you find tools which in turn will help you to live a more healthy and productive life.

Erupting and lashing out to relieve your pain creates disruption in your everyday life. While anger is a healthy emotion, lashing out and rage creates guilt and relationship destruction. In my 30+ years of clinical practice, I have provided my clients with a non-judgemental safe environment so together we can build a trust where they can be open and honest without embarrassment or shame. In letting down their defenses and acknowledging their behavior my clients learn how to emotionally regulate their pain by taking ownership and removing themselves from the current situation, which gives them space to provide a more regulated and healthy response.

Anger is both a natural and necessary emotion. It is a vital part of our preservation instinct. But when your anger causes troubles--say at work, in relationships, to your health-- it becomes critical that you develop new ways to address anger: methods that help decrease how frequently or intensely you get angry, and that lead to more effective responses to anger. Dr. Goldstein addresses anger from a realistic, practical perspective that can help you enjoy a healthier, more constructive approach to your life in the face of anger.

Healthy anger is intended to communicate a problem in relationship that needs attention. It is intended to say this is important take it seriously. Many people think of anger as the blaming, yelling, controlling behavior that is destructive to relationships, and prevents healthy communication. Those with a genuine desire to change can learn to manage their feelings in healthy ways that build rather then destroy relationships. I work with clients to help them identify and manage their feelings and needs and direct their actions toward self-confidence, and empathy for others.

Anger is an emotion that we all have. Sometimes it may even seem justified, but that's not the point. It's how we react to our anger that matters. When we get angry, a certain part of the brain gets activated and takes over. This causes a chemical reaction in our bodies that prepares us for 'fight or flight.' The thinking, rational part of the brain shuts down. That is why we sometimes regret our actions once we calm down. Because the thinking part of the brain reactivates and we become more rational. Naudeya is trained to help people identify their triggers and implement strategies before it's too late. To schedule an appointment with Naudeya call TR Counseling & Wellness at 203-

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.
