EMDR(Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing)can prove extremely helpful when clients are struggling to control their tempers. Often they have experienced trauma--such as childhood abuse--that results in their being triggered by current situations. They then lash out at those close to them and may not even understand why they are so angry. EMDR can help them to resolve the trauma, so that they no longer are triggered. I also teach skills from DBT(Dialectical Behavioral Therapy)that help clients to better regulate their emotions and more skillfully handle moments of crisis so that they do not act out in ways that they later regret.

Is your temper raging “out of control”? Do small things set you off? Do you react with sudden outbursts, flinging insults? Or, do you retreat in silent rage? Do you often feel your anger is justified, but upon reflection, regret your behavior? Or, do you find yourself locked in constant battle with people closest to you and those you love? Anger is a natural emotion, but unregulated anger can be destructive. It takes a toll on the individual and those around him or her, eroding self-esteem, wreaking havoc, and perpetuating feelings of disconnection, isolation and even loneliness. We can help you manage angry outbursts, understand your anger’s origins including unknown, underlying painful emotions, identify healthy coping strategies, channel your anger...(view profile to read more)

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.

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.

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.

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. * Please note I do not provide court ordered anger management groups
