I often refer to Anger as a "secondary emotion", which is often a complex emotion that is the result of other underlying feelings and circumstances, some of which include: sadness, lack of control, injustice, jealousy, and disrespect. I help those I serve become aware of those feelings below the surface and provide evidence based strategies that can be used to decrease feelings of anger and to effectively deal with feelings of anger when they occur.

Anger is commonly a shield to protect us from feelings of hurt, pain, sadness, and fear. I provide tools to help manage the angry feelings by helping to increase insight and eventually help w/ the healing process. Sometimes anger feels good to release in the short term however the negative consequences tend to add up over time especially to relationships.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

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.

I use Christian-faith based counseling as a way to reduce anger as well as multiple cognitive behavioral techniques and homework assignments. Deep breathing, meditation and muscle relaxation as well as other creative forms of expression are used in session and during session time as a way to get you re-focused and in the present. Examination of underlying causes for anger are also explored and examined as well as forgiveness work if needed.

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.

So often the approach to anger management is to tell someone to stop acting out on angry feelings: just behave, just control yourself. My sense is that the vast majority of people who struggle with anger are angry for important reasons. You have dealt with enough shame and embarrassment over this; I would like to help you try to get to the heart of the matter. Most people find that the journey to discover the underlying reasons for anger, if it occurs in a safe and empathic environment, is profoundly healing. Not only are angry reactions minimized, but anger itself seems much more manageable.
