Do you feel that your emotions can high-jack your relationships? Do you struggle with anger? Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy is a very effective way of gaining control over anger and other emotionally impulsive patterns. Individuals who seek counseling for these issues are more likely to conquer the emotions that trigger outbursts. Don't waste another minute trying to do it alone. Give me a call and we can work on this together.

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 assist clients with both cognitive behavioral and insight oriented therapy to understand the roots of their anger, how anger is a secondary emotion, and various techniques and skills to effectively manage their anger by directing it in positive ways, rather than either "stuffing" it or "acting out." Often as clients increase their self awareness, they are able to effectively change their responses in situations and relationships that help them be more proactive in handling their anger.

Many words express some aspect of anger: frustration, aggravation, irritation, rage. You may not be able to decide sometimes what part of your anger is good and what is not. You do know if you are angry more than you want to be. You know if other people run the other way when you are angry. You know if anger is a helpful part of your life or a wedge you drive between you and others. The bottom line is what are you going to do about it? I'm not a big fan of anger management. People manage their anger in all kinds of unhelpful ways. What I want to help you do is understand when your anger is a friend to you and when it is destroying you. If that sounds like what you need, give me a call.

Anger is a normal and natural feeling, but if your anger controls your life, causes harm to relationships, stands in the way of opportunities, or gets the better of you in any other way, steps need to be taken to manage your anger and find ways to express it in appropriate ways. Being able to identify situations, or thoughts that trigger your anger, as well as your physical responses, paves the way to discovery of how to calm yourself and take control. Anger management counseling can give you personalized, practical, one-on-one help with this.

Anger is so much more than just anger. Under Anger there are a lot of deeper feelings that have usually gone repressed or unvalidated. The first step in working with anger is addressing those underlying thoughts and feelings to get to the root of the anger. We'll find new ways to cope with life's stressors and incorporate new ways of interacting with others.

Most people who have difficulty managing their anger have unintentionally allowed it to build up over years and years. If this pain is not alleviated, it builds and builds until it is expressed in a verbally or physically violent outburst. Just as a volcano fills with hot lava and erupts unexpectedly, a person's anger is released in a similar phenomenon. I can help you process these emotions and channel them in a more productive manner so that you can live a healthier, happier life.

Reducing the words used many times by clients with anger issues can be the key to effective change in behaviors. These words are "ought, must and should'. Reducing or eliminating them can create profound change. Also reducing expectations of self and others has helped individual won struggle with anger bring it under control. Learning to accept anger as just another emotion and learning to validate and regulate that feeling become important tools in this very devastating issue.
