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.

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.

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 is an emotion that, when expressed assertively treats self and others with dignity, and helps us stand up for ourselves to clarify and express what we need or want, like or don't like, etc. On the other hand, anger, as an automatic defense strategy, can damage both ourrelationships and personal health. As a defense strategy, anger is expressed in one of two ways. Some express their resentment outwardly, such as with yelling, and others express it inwardly, by withdrawing, stewing with resentment inside. Awareness of inner thoughts, emotions & body's signals, and understanding how brain & body work together are keys to regulating anger.

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.

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."

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.

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.

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.

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.
