As a society we tell people they shouldn't be angry. But anger is a hard-wired emotion that's part of our physical and emotional make-up. What we do with that anger however is another thing altogether. Many people with anger management issues, or people who feel overwhelmed or engulf by their anger, come to therapy feeling lost as to how to handle what they are experiencing and regret the aftermath of their "anger management." I will help you understand the deeper meanings and anchors to your anger so that instead of fearing it, mis-using it, or snuffing it out with addiction, you will be able to process and understand it in a healthy manner.

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

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 counseling can help to identify stressors and learn the steps to stay calm in the face of anger. The goal is to handle tense situations in more constructive and positive ways by reducing the emotional and physical arousal that anger can cause. It will provide the tools to take back your life and resolve the triggers that result in unplanned anger reactions.

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.

Children can say the darnedest things and sometimes parents aren't prepared for them. When possible, we can curb explosive anger through parent strategies alone. And at other times it takes a 2 pronged approach of both parent strategies and children learning skills. We offer both parent training and skill based learning to support appropriate expression of feelings and productive problem solving.

Occasional anger is a normal part of life. When expressed appropriately anger can be both therapeutic and helpful. However, when anger is expressed inappropriately or with great intensity it can become very destructive to one's relationships or one's self. When this happens it may be very helpful to consult a therapist with skill in dealing with anger management problems. At Portrait Health Centers, therapy can greatly benefit the person seeking treatment for anger management.

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 anger getting in the way of getting what you want out of life? Anger can be difficult to control in the moment, which is why prevention is my main treatment focus. Often anger is secondary to other emotions, such as feeling threatened, disrespected, or unheard. Improving communication skills is an important part of treatment, as is understanding the root causes of anger and being able to identify feelings of tension and frustration as they begin to build. How would your life change if you learned healthier ways to express yourself and have your needs met?

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.
