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.

The natural way to express anger is shown through aggressive actions or words. Anger is a completely normal reaction to what we perceive as threats which allows us to defend ourselves when we are under “attack”. For certain situations, the feeling of anger is necessary in order to survive. Our therapists will help you identify signs that you may becoming excessively angry, and will assist you every step of the way to productively handle situations in a healthy way. The goal is to help you express your needs while being in control of your reactions in a calm and collected manner. Call us now to schedule a first appointment with an anger management therapist.

I work with anger management for anger that is not physically abusive and not required by the courts. We will look at the root causes - is this a way that you keep others at bay? Are there other ways to cope with anger? Is this an approach to conflict that you learned in your family? We will talk about your thoughts, experiences, and expectations regarding conflicts. I will help you to understand and articulate the cause your anger so that you are less likely to feel out of control.

"Sticks and stones will break my bones, but your words will break my heart." Many people with anger issues know the damage that can be done to a relationship with even one outburst. Mastering anger is necessary to having the affection and trust of the people we care about. It has been accurately referred to as 'restraint of pen and tongue' in some literature. While it may seem like an effort one undertakes for others, the primary benefits are to the person who handles their anger. If you are reading this, and the thought "I wouldn't get angry if so-and-so didn't do such-and-such" consider yourself a primary candidate for this work. Discovering how to escape from anger will set you free.

But anger has risks, perhaps more than any other . It can alienate people from others and lead individuals to do things they later . People who have lasting, extreme anger may find it helpful to explore its causes .

Anger is an amazing tool. Often when we hang out in anger it's because we either don't know other tools that are available or because we have some deep unresolved hurt that we have yet to resolve. In working together, we will both unveil the other emotional tools in your toolbox, and uncover any unresolved feelings beneath the anger. We will build a sense of safety within based on your own sense of worth.

The good news is there is also plenty of scientific support to show that effective anger management can reduce anger symptoms in as few as 12-20 sessions. In fact, a study published by one of our staff members indicated that in addition to anger being reduced, but depression symptoms decreased as well.

Children and adolescents don’t usually say, “I’m having trouble with my anger right now and I need help coping”. They show us they’re experiencing overwhelming feelings with their actions and behaviors. Whether your child or teen is experiencing frequent tantrums or meltdowns or just difficulty regulating their emotions, I can help. I have extensive experience working with children and adolescents in both outpatient and school settings. Using play therapy, creative modalities, and cognitive behavioral therapy, I can help children and teens to communicate, make sense of their feelings, and begin to gain control over them so that they can overcome what’s standing in their way of happiness.
