I help individuals learn to feel all of their feelings. This includes learning how to feel their anger and express it effectively and appropriately as opposed to ineffectively or destructively. Anger is a tricky emotion to understand because it has so much energy. The energy of anger has to be handled in strategic ways---which when done so can be a source of positive potential allowing the individual to address the issues that are causing them so much frustration.

No one likes to see red. No one wants to feel out of control or unable to manage their emotions. Through therapy, you can gain insight into triggers, hot spots and factors that affect your anger and help you learn to be less reactive and more in control of your actions. Anger is just one of many emotions that we experience and often times it can be sparked by other more vulnerable emotions such as fear or hurt. In therapy, you will experience a non-judgmental, safe space to discuss experiences, thoughts and feelings that lead to anger in order to gain insight and change problem behaviors.

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 management plays a large role in many concerns that bring people to therapy. Anger often gets a bad rap in society and is misunderstood as a "bad" emotion. I work with people to understand that anger is a sign of feeling violated and/or sensing that something within our experience is not OK and difficult to accept. Once we can decipher what is truly happening, I work with people to practice recognizing the signs of worsening anger, the often co-occuring emotional states such as depression and fear, and practice management techniques that are helpful in the moment as well as to prevent increasing moments of anger, rage or irritation.

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)

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.

My approach to anger management is global. Anger is a symptom of either underlying pathology or mental illness or a personality pattern which might have developed over a course of life. Many times patients with anger suffer from a psychiatric illness which must be treated first before developing a treatment plan. Anger management approach must be unique to a given patient.

Anger management has a become a big issue in our country and uncontrolled anger can lead to tragedy. Most angry people are stressed and in our high pressure stressful society there are many "triggers" . I use EMDR to treat the underlying anxiety and stress and use cognitive approaches to help relieve pressure before a person is out of control.
