Anger, along with guilt, feelings of inadequacy, sexuality, and anxiety, is one of the major issues I work with in individual psychotherapy and marital counseling. My treatment of preference for anger management is primarily psychodynamic; this is because it enables both the patient and myself to identify the underlying issues and what triggers them. Once we have established what the triggers are, we can begin to explore what the underlying psychodynamics are entering new territory where most of the psychotherapy happens.

Anger is usually a more surface emotion for a deeper emotion such as fear or sadness. Anger can be like a flashing light on a dashboard of a car, indicating trouble inside. It is important to learn to diffuse and go to the root of this symptom. Looking at family of origin issues explains anger that many times seems inappropriate for current situations. I believe a person's past is the key to enjoying the present and fulfilling dreams of the future.

Anger is a secondary emotion, it never exists in a vacuum. This means that all anger has its source, whether it be unmet needs, frustration, guilt, shame etc. A large part of anger management counseling is uncovering the primary emotion, revealing the source and understanding where the anger is coming from. Often, this knowledge alone is more than half the battle. There are other techniques as well that can help you overcome your anger when you feel like you're going to "flip your lid."

Anger is a necessary emotion that has it's own intelligence. It helps us identify a threat and often motivates us to make improvements. Think, for example, of the American Revolution, the Civil Rights and the Equal Rights Movements, all of which began with a group of people who got angry. But like all good things that our emotions offer us, there is the downside to anger. Anger is usually energizing, and this energy can be harmful if misdirected. It can harm relationships, lead to physical harm, financial problems and sometimes, death. Anger itself is not the problem. It is how that anger is expressed that is the problem. I help people find better ways of expressing themselves.

I work with clients to both understand their angry responses and to improve their behavior. Anger results from our interpretation of situations rather than the actual situation. Anger can prevent people from develping strong connections in relationships. It is difficult to trust a person who frequently responds in an angry manner or whose anger can be out of proportion to the situation. I help clients become less angry so they can improve their current relationships and develop new ones.

Anger can get triggered in situations where you feel disrespected, shamed, rejected, powerless, not heard, not valued, or not safe. My approach for helping clients reduce their anger is to identify past experiences that elicit anger, frustration, fear, shame or other upsetting emotions and negative thoughts now, and then to reprocess those memories with EMDR therapy. I have also helped clients understand why they feel they need to hold on to their anger and then work through the blocks to letting the anger go while still helping them find other ways to feel in control, heard, respected or safe. Note: I do not offer Anger Management classes to meet work or court ordered requirements.

If you find yourself feeling unusually angry at your partner, or feeling angry much of the time toward several other people, I can help you get to the bottom of your stewing anger. I can help you understand the reaction in the brain that makes you want to fight, as well as how sweeping it under the rug leads to blowing up. I can teach you ways to interrupt your anger before it builds and to express it in appropriate ways so that you can improve your relationships with others instead of damage them with anger. If you have been engaging in physically abusive/aggressive behavior, please seek help from a Family Violence Intervention Program.

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 powerful. It protects us, defends us and is often easier to express than hurt, fear or other negative emotions. However, anger doesn't solve problems. It usually creates more. Emotions, however, are all good. They reflect what is going on in our heart. We can't control what we feel, but we can control what we do, say and think. Emotions reflect how we just processed an experience. Sometimes the processing is distorted. In order to change what we feel, we must address how we see the world. This is tough work. We also need to gain new skills to approach life with more productive and beneficial behavior. I can help you with both. No condemnation.

"Anger management" has become a household term, and this is no surprise as anger is so prevalent in our society and it is so necessary to manage it. Anger in and of itself is not bad, but poor anger management skills can have negative and sometimes devastating effects on our relationships, careers, etc. In psychotherapy, I work with clients to identify the source(s) of their anger and then help them to look at things from different perspectives and to change their negative thinking and behaviors. With this help, people can take control of their anger and not let it control them.
