Anger becomes a repetitive cycle, like bring on a hamster wheel, but it ultimately sabotages the other areas of our lives. I think of it this way: that when you're in the grips of chronic anger, you're being played rather than being the player, the author, of your own experiences. Played by? Three things: Your past, the object of your anger and physiological habits, in that people's minds will be most comfortable in a certain disposition, in this case, anger. Good things come from finding light in the darkness. In this case, with therapy, in transcending grievances and the mental habit of anger, to see things in a better way and to lift your everyday experience to a more satisfying place.

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 Management is a specialty of our center. Research indicates that anger problems can be made worse by therapists practicing ineffective techniques. So you wan to be sure your clinician is practicing the right form of anger management. 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. If you, or a loved one, suffer from anger problems, please call us with any questions you may have. We understand how far reaching these issues can be.

Anger is a completely normal, usually healthy, human emotion. But when it gets out of control and turns destructive, it can lead to problems at work, in relationships and in the overall quality of your life. But you don’t have to feel helpless in the face of an unpredictable and destructive force in your life. I work to help you heal the root cause of your anger. You’ll find understanding and compassion for the pain in yourself and your healing can begin. With healing comes understanding and compassion for others, and the return of the sense of control and calm in your life.

"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.

Whether it's finding new behavioral techniques to channel anger and frustration, or exploring the roots of your anger and frustration so that you can gain a deeper understanding of these feelings; I would very much like to help you work through these struggles.

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 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.

Anger is neither a good emotion nor is it a bad one. It is sending a message saying to you that a situation (or a person) is unfair, unjust, disrespectful or threatening. It is normal to be angry when you’ve been mistreated or wronged. However, it becomes a problem when you let anger out in a way that harms yourself or others. If you feel like your anger is out of your hands and there is little you can do to control it, I provide the help you need to gain control over your anger. During our work, we explore the roots of your anger, and you learn new ways to communicate your feelings and thoughts without hurting yourself or others.

We all get angry at times in our life, and there are times when anger is a useful signal that tells us something needs to change or that something is wrong. But there are also times where anger can begin to dominate our thoughts and actions, causing problems at work and in our relationships. My goal as a therapist is to help you talk though your concerns and issues so that I can give you the tools to help you overcome sources of non-productive anger. When you're tired of being angry and ready to move on, let's talk.
