Anger is a tough emotion. It feels so real and raw in the moment, that we forget that it’s simply a defense mechanism. As human beings, we like to feel powerful. Vulnerable emotions are dangerous. Sadness, fear, jealousy, hurt, and betrayal make us feel weak, so what do we do? We try to look strong, scary, and powerful. Anger is the most efficient way to do this. If we can sit with our more vulnerable feelings and care for them, we are able to see our anger evaporate. We’ll work together to create a safe space for you to explore what’s hiding beneath your anger. The freedom that comes with vulnerability is where your true power lies.

Destructive, uncontrolled anger damages relationships, marriages, children, entire families, career advancement...and oneself. It can destroy lives. Anger needs management, harnessing & work to use its energy for productive lives. Good can come out of the chaos - it takes work and a commitment to change. It is possible. My clients learn to control anger, use the energy for good and repairing damage to relationships. Whether dealing with current or past events, or both, my clients learn to make sense out of their lives and move past and forward in ways that bring personal and relational health, healing and practical ways to move to better places in their lives & the lives of others.

Anger does not exist on its own. Anger is created within us. No one can make us angry. We have to choose to.become angry. Anger comes from within us and is determined by nit a situation but by our thoughts about a situation. It is empowering to learn and take control of the power to harness the anger that we sometimes feel. You can harness it. Anger is a learned behavior often learned from the environment in which we live or influences around us including social media, friends, television, etc.. It is a detriment to our social networks and our relationships. Often when we suffer with an anger problem, it is not that we WANT to be angry, it just feels like it takes over. We can take it back.

At Home or Private Discreet Intensives

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 is one of the most misunderstood emotions. It's often considered one of the "villains" of the emotional world. But, actually, anger has a lot of energy in it which could be productive if managed right. So the problem isn't really anger but unmanaged anger. My approach is to help a client develop understanding of what anger is and what it is not, and to apply this knowledge skillfully in his or her own life.

I have extensive experience working with anger management. While working in rehab, I provided two groups per week regarding anger management. Anger can be a difficult emotion that can lead to inappropriate verbal and physical outbursts. It can be difficult for parents to deal with when their children are destroying objects or hurting one another, or themselves. Children also tend to copy how parents express anger. I have worked with many parents who are worried about their children becoming verbally aggressive, only to find that they themselves have difficulty expressing anger appropriately. Treatment for anger involves recognizing physical symptoms, thinking, and patterns of behavior.
