In anger management treatment, cognitive behavioral therapy has been proven to be a helpful tool. I work with clients on identifying triggers and ways to manage their anger. For some clients, it may be helpful to explore their thinking patterns. Mindfulness skills can also be taught in conjunction with CBT. Mindfulness practices can include meditation, yoga and other practices to help reduce reactivity.

Nothing makes you feel more angry than someone telling you to "calm down" right? Anger is important to acknowledge and explore in therapy- not to dismiss, ignore or stifle. Sometimes anger can be masking other underlying emotions, sometimes it is trying to communicate something important about your needs, and sometimes it may be trying to motivate you to take action. I believe that anger often needs a healthy and safe way to be released rather than be suppressed. I support clients in doing so through art making, movement, writing, talking and other experiential techniques.

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."

From rage to passive aggression, anger can cause a lot of damage and get in the way of our living safisfying lives. Anger issues can resolve. You can get better. I look forward to hearing from you.

We all experience anger in our lives. I help clients develop healthy ways to experience and express their anger by: • Identifying effective ways to handle anger and express feelings; • Understanding how feelings such as fear, pride and inferiority feed anger; • Transforming negative patterns of thinking, relating and behaving that influence anger; • Learning ways to communicate, resolve conflicts and meet needs successfully; and • Developing a healthy lifestyle that supports a successful life. The constructive use of anger, assertiveness, helps express and preserve our needs, worth, and convictions while considering and respecting the needs and feelings of others.

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.

I do not help clients to "manage" anger. I help them to understand its source and to use it productively rather than destructively. Sometimes it covers up some other feelings that need to be dealt with, and sometimes it is simply directed at the wrong person. By coming to understand your anger better you keep it from making problems and use it to find solutions.

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.

We all get angry sometimes. Anger, like other emotions, is important. It signals to us that something is going on that we need to pay attention to and understand better. If we don’t slow ourselves down, anger can take up a lot of space in our relationships and our lives. I work with people to help them recognize the triggers for their anger, what meaning this trigger holds for them, and what feelings are fueling the anger. In this way, people can express their feelings and needs in a way that leads to happier lives and better relationships.

Anger is an unresolved issue from the past, which eventually ruins most relationships in a person's future. Anger is an emotion that we all experience. However, how one deals with their anger can become a big part of a problem. For some couples, anger can make it nearly impossible to figure out what the problem is or how to fix it. Counseling will decipher the root of the anger, and then how the client may manage those feelings. Oftentimes, sessions will involve the client, and the people who reside with them. Residents are encouraged to participate in counseling sessions for healing. The biggest challenge to living with a resentful or angry person is to keep from becoming one yourself.

I provide individual psychotherapy for anger management. Anger is normal emotion that everyone experiences. It becomes a problem when one expresses anger inappropriately or one lacks the proficiency to express any emotions but anger. I use Humanistic and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) to help my clients understand their anger, improve their emotional experience, and express their emotions in healthy ways. A healthy emotional life is the cornerstone of living a full and successful life.

Anger is usually an indication of other deep seated emotions. While working on reducing angry behavior can help live a more peaceful life, getting to the deep seated emotion that drives the behavior is the approach I use. Doing this may not be the desired approach for many; however, the emotional reactions someone has with anger management can can be difficult to manage without understanding what is going on with them.
