Becoming upset or angry is a fact of being human. These upsets are usually tied to three specific elements which are addressed while in session. One example being an unfulfilled expectation - that is, you thought something would turn out one way, yet it turned out another. This naturally makes one upset. How you deal with it is another matter altogether. This service will help you first become clear on the three elements of an upset, teach you ways to get out in front of automatic responses and make sure you have a new set of tools to better be able to manage such situations when they arise.

Women often have a hard time getting mad, and turn anger inward. Men often have difficulty keeping anger in check, and can be threatening or passive aggressive. And vice versa. No matter your style, anger is a problem when it blinds you to using good judgment, costs you a relationship or job, or causes you to use your power inappropriately, or to fear confronting it directly. My treatment approach helps clients understand their anger, where it comes from, how it serves them and what is hurt. You'll learn why certain triggers set you off and how to manage your reflexive responses more productively. If anger is causing you or others injury, therapy can make the difference for good.

Individuals will develop the ability to understand some of the origins of their anger and how that relates to their acted-out anger behaviors. Strategies will be developed collaboratively in order to intervene early and effectively in appropriately managing the anger. Individuals will also develop skills for appropriate communication of their feelings to those they interact with on a daily basis. Learning to be assertive of themselves without aggression, maintaining respect of others, is a goal of the therapy.

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 help clients to create a tool chest to use when experiencing anger. This includes mindfulness work to build the space in their heads to make new responses when angry. This includes empowering clients around the choices they can make and building on their strengths, while teaching relaxation and grounding techniques. Along with creating new space, I help them explore the variety of causes for their anger and help them reconnect to it in a healthier manner.

Anger is a complex and often misrepresented emotion. The danger of undiagnosed, high levels of anger can have harmful consequences for individuals, families and careers. As we work together, I can help you understand patterns of anger and its origins, as well as how to calm that part of you, and how to repair the relationships that were damaged as a result of anger directed at others. Examples of questions to ask yourself are: How has your anger been a liability to you and/or your loved ones? What has been the most profound cost of your anger? In the past, how have you had success controlling your anger or keeping it at bay? When your anger is better, who will be the first person to notice?

Anger is a part of a person, not the whole person. When working with an angry person, I help them to notice that anger is just one aspect of themselves. We often use Internal Family Systems therapy to help people to have more compassion for themselves, and for their anger. This compassion can unlock a healing experience for a person. I also use a cognitive approach, helping people to notice that their interpretation of events may or may not be correct, and they may be reacting to something in an excessive way. We develop skills for containing reactions until the person is calmer. We also work on skills for avoiding the escalation of many potential situations.

Is your anger causing problems in your life? Let me help! Anger may have become problematic because of an ongoing pattern of suppressing feelings or of keeping things to yourself. It may be coming out in unhealthy ways because of difficulties being assertive or standing up for oneself assertively. Alternately, a lack of skills in managing feelings maybe the source of the problem. Whatever the reasons that you anger has become problematic, I can help. I am easy to talk to, down to earth, non-judgmental, and practical.
