Very often people find that their angry outbursts surprise them (and those around them). This occurs most often because we haven't dealt with the real source of the anger. Clients often try to convince themselves that they are "over it" or that "it doesn't matter" when, in fact, they aren't over it and it does matter. I see this quite a lot in women - who tend to be socialize not to show anger. Therefore it leaks out in more passive aggressive and subtle ways. It's still anger - but it can be inflicted on herself or the true reason for the anger can be veiled making it difficult for others to figure how why there is an outburst.

Anger is often one of the greatest tactics the enemy of our soul uses to rob us of our peace and joy. Being quick to take offense is often a sly trick of the enemy, and if we take the bait, we will indeed behave in ways we'll later regret. I use a Christian foundation and a Biblical perspective to help my patients learn how to have peace in a storm and how to take appropriate "time-outs" to help them to respond to a situation versus reacting to it.

Anger Management is about understanding how to manage the triggers and stressors that are uniquely the clients. Learning mindfulness techniques and self-reflection approaches are some of the strategies. Anger can also be the byproduct of an imbalance biochemistry. In therapy we explore the episodes and work with both the short term and long term issues. I work with adolescents/teens who have anger issues including impulse disorders.

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 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.

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 get tired of hearing the phrase "Angry Woman". Women aren't just angry, there is often a reason/justification. I start by listening and understanding what you have gone through in life. Anger often masks other hidden emotions. Together, we will work through your anger and frustrations and learn new ways to manage. I am empathetic, understanding and creative. We will develop new ways to face your challenges.

Getting angry is a natural emotion, one that is sometimes hard to control, but often unhelpful. Do you find that you go from 0-100 in the blink of an eye? Well, you're not alone. When angry, it's challenging to see and think clearly. I can help you slow this "blink of an eye" down so you can better manage your anger and angry reactions. I will teach you how to identify your triggers, examine your "anger chain of actions" and develop strategies to help you feel more in control of the situation and able to think and see clearly even in the most strenuous of times.

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.

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 do not work with actively violent clients. A lot of people, parents, kids, spouses have issues of yelling, interrupting, throwing things, threats, hostile withdrawal, passive aggressive or intimidation. Dr. Phillips coaches clients on assertiveness, learning to "shut up and get up," pausing to stop reacting and start responding, the importance of the calm-and-kind conversation, the method and importance of apologies and repairs, the labels of voice volume (whisper, conversation, emphatic, loud, yelling and screaming), the need to slow down, listen first and so much more!
