I have nearly 20 years experience running anger management groups and working with individuals and couples on this issue. Anger is aggressive. The aggression of anger protects us by pushing away and hurting others before they hurt us. As a result, anger problems always created damage our lives and emotional distance from those we care about. You will learn to manage your feelings in ways that undo the damage your anger has caused. Your life will function in healthier ways, without the chaos your anger has caused. And you will move closer to the people who matter, rather than dealing with the fallout and distance your anger has caused. Both you and those close to you will benefit greatly.

To help you with Anger Management, I offer the 'know how' -- to teach you how to self-regulate through body & mind; to disarm overactive 'survival' reactions; and to teach you how to 'rewire your own brain' to replace dysfunctional patterns with functional ones. I can also a) help you explore the thoughts, feelings & behaviors that contribute to and fuel your anger; b) help you identify conditions, meanings, and triggers associated with your anger; and c) encourage you to experiment with trying new ways to manage anger, both within yourself and in relation to others. However, the most essential thing in creating your own "growth & healing" will be our "good therapeutic collaboration."

Uncontrollable anger, a bad temper and aggression can lead to significant relationship and career failures. Identifying the triggers that cause one to become upset and learning more adaptive strategies and solutions are the essential ingredients for change. Cognitive restructuring, problem solving, improving communication and relaxation strategies are but a few approaches used in anger management treatment. Working with partners, spouses or family members is also beneficial. At times, medication may be warranted in conjunction with therapy or counseling. We at Ashburn Psychological Services are here to help.

Feeling chronically angry? The smallest things set you off? You just wake up angry and your day feels already bad? Maybe you've been referred to as 'grumpy' or a 'Debbie Downer.' Maybe you've tried a number of things to cheer yourself up. Doesn't work, does it? Well, a theme in my frame work to therapy, is getting to the root of the problem. When did this start? How did this start? Are you holding a resentment? What's your view of the world? A good, safe place? Or maybe an violent, bad place? Let's explore together and understand where this comes from, what makes you tick, and together we can find ways to heal.

Anger is a natural response to hurt and fear but it can cause more pain in our lives if we use it to hurt others, physically or emotionally. Anger that is destructive, usually comes from an old hurt that we are carrying within us. This hurt has been painfully touched by circumstances or by the actions of someone else. First we need to learn ways to stop our hurtful actions by taking a break or walking away. Then, however, we need to turn our attention to the underlying hurt and to bring compassion and care to our own hurt self. You will find that at the same time, you become more compassionate toward other people.

Living with anger management can cause difficulties in many aspects of a person's world. Personal, professional and community relationships are at risk if one struggles with anger issues. Tools to reduce anger management involve exploring the root of the anger and dissecting it to discern when, how and why certain anger triggers are activated. Once identifying triggers, we work on how the client can learn to channel the anger into a more productive direction be it via physical activity or other appropriate energy releases. There can also be a focus on mindfulness and meditation to help with the overwhelming anger impulses.

Sometimes we do not know why we are angry and what to do to control it. I will help you to learn tools you can use to calm down and deal with things in a positive way. Anger can prevent you from obtaining many of the things you want in life. Once you learn how to identify your triggers you will be able to take steps to prevent that big blowup. We may use meditation and tai chi techniques to put yourself in a calm place.

Anger management can change the course of your life. When we learn how to manage our feelings, instead of our feelings managing us, we begin to grow in psychological maturity. The quality of your relationships determines the quality of your life. I will assist you in understanding triggers, thought patterns, and developing alternative coping mechanisms to address difficult feelings. Your relationships and your life will thrive.

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 a human emotion, and everyone experiences it. The problem comes when we act on our anger in an inappropriate or unhealthy way. My work involves helping clients to identify and change thoughts and behaviors that contribute to their anger and to find more positive ways of expressing anger. We explore relaxation and stress relieving techniques to help the client manage stress. We also may explore underlying emotions and feelings and work on healing any emotional wounds. If the client is in a relationship, I will work with the couple to help them connect and change the dynamics in their relationship that contribute to the anger.

How do you know if your anger is serious enough to need help? A quick answer is if you find that anger is your go-to, knee-jerk reaction to everyday irritants and disappointments, or if your anger is compromising your quality of life, it may be time to talk to someone. My way of working with angry clients is to both search for the causes of the anger as well as figure out concrete, common-sense ways for anger to be managed on a daily basis. Anger itself is not the problem; often it's the management (or mismanagement) of it that brings on a host of other problems. Maybe you have a right to be angry! But wouldn't it be better to be able to express that anger in a way others can really hear it?
