Anger is a completely normal human emotion that turns destructive when it gets out of control. Anger is an emotional state that varies from mild irritation to intense fury and rage. It can be caused by both external and internal events. When anger gets out of control it causes problems in your personal relationships, the workplace, and in the quality of your life. Some people get angry more easily and more intensely than others. These people can express their anger in loud ways or express it by being chronically irritable, grumpy, socially withdrawn, or getting physically ill. Expressing your anger in an assertive manner is healthy. If anger is not allowed an outward expression it can turn inward on you causing hypertension, high blood pressure,...(view profile to read more)

Anger is a normal human emotion that we all experience. The way we express anger can be what distinguishes us as being healthy or unhealthy partners, parents, co-workers, employees or managers. Anger is generally a surface emotion. Beneath it lies another strong emotion, usually sadness, hurt, fear or inadequacy. In our efforts to protect ourselves from being vulnerable we often act out in anger, which generally takes us farther away from our true goals. In my work with you I will help you understand your anger in a different way and provide you with techniques and coping skills to manage this strong emotion moving you closer to your ultimate goals and strengthening your relationships.

In dealing with anger management, I do not simply try to focus on counting to 10 and other superficial control mechanisms. Instead, I try to help the individual to learn to deal more effectively with the underlying causes of the anger. Anger is a defensive response to perceived threat. Thus, I help the individual to uncover, recognize and deal more effectively with the perceived threat - perceived loss of love and respect from a loved one is the most common threat. We all feel hurt when we perceive that our loved one feels or thinks less of us.

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 an emotion that can be very hard to manage and respond to effectively because most people often have a very automatic and impulsive response when they experience anger. Through dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) we can begin to identify emotions and begin to slow down in order to recognize ways to respond to emotions rather than react to them. This will help you feel more in control of your emotions as well as improve your relationships with others because of your ability to manage and respond to anger effectively.

The key to anger management is learning not to respond to the small things in life. It is learning to focus on impulse control with emotions and learning to filter the impact of words. Not controlling anger will cause a lifetime of chaotic and destructive relationships. Another focus of anger management counseling is to heal the emotional hurts and trust issues that brought you to a place where your natural tendency is be defensive towards others instead of accepting and loving.

I've seen many clients over the years with anger management issues. Men require a therapist's sensitivity to the issues they use anger to deal with. Learning the practical skills to deal with anger and understanding the issues of entitlement, humiliation, control, and fear that often provoke rage or it's opposite, suppressing, internalizing it, is my goal in working with clients through individual and couple's counseling. I see many couples where their anger with each other contaminates possibilities of working on common issues so I work with couples to disentangle their disruptive, sometimes abusive communications through a combination of individual and couple's counseling.

Have you ever lost your temper and then thought "why did I react that way"? Do you struggle to communicate with people in your life without getting mad or defensive, yelling, or withdrawing/isolating from the situation all together? You are not alone. Many people struggle with managing their anger and finding other ways to communicate their frustrations without verbal and physical aggression. I work with individuals struggling to regulate their emotions by finding the feelings underneath the anger and learning appropriate strategies like mindfulness, distress tolerance, and emotion regulation to help them communicate their needs effectively.

If after getting a flat tire, you think and continue to say to yourself: "This sucks"…This is terrible"…"Why does this always happen to me?"…"I can’t stand it"… anger will be the likely emotional response. And if you typically think in a negative way, then you will likely be more prone to psychological and physical difficulties like anger, poor relationships, stroke and heart disease.On the other hand, someone who thinks to himself "I’m glad that I have a spare tire"…"I can handle this"…"This is a hassle, not a horror", will react in a more realistic manner. Cognitive behavioral therapy can help you learn how to cope more effectively with life's challenges and lead a happier life.

Anger is not bad by itself. Getting adrenaline drunk though, can give you power at the time, but can also be destructive. Other types of anger may be hidden from view, but slowly eat away at your happiness. I can help you find your triggers, understand how they affect you, and work with you to develop coping tools to both prevent and recover from the stress hormones that accompany anger.
