Anger is a completely normal, often healthy human emotion. But if it gets beyond your control, it can be very destructive in your work and interpersonal relationships and can drastically devastate the quality of your life. Fortunately, anger can be 'managed' which is very different than 'suppressing' it. Unexpressed anger leads to a host of other problems including high blood pressure. However, when we learn how to 'manage' our anger, we can learn to diminish both the emotional feelings and the physiological arousal that anger causes. We can learn to avoid triggers and develop strategies. We can learn how to problem solve, change our thinking and relax our bodies.

Anger is a normal and healthy emotion and we all get angry from time to time. However, when anger turns destructive and/or self-destructive and brings problems into your personal and professional life, you need to seek support to learn how to manage your anger better. In the process, you will learn how to relieve the symptoms and recognize the signs of anger, increase your confidence and self esteem level, enjoy stronger and healthier relationships with your loved ones and coworkers, learn how to express yourself and your emotions with confidence and without anger, and live more balanced life both mentally and emotionally.

Anger is a normal emotion.It does not need to be "managed". It needs to be understood. Usually anger masks hurt. An examination of anger can uncover hurts and vulnerabilities which need to be better expressed. Often anger turns into aggression, which is the attempt to control another person. It is the aggression which needs to be managed while the anger/hurt needs understanding and acceptance. In addition we must be able to tolerate hurt in order to learn and grow in a relationship. Often the hurts arise because our partner sees things differently from ourself. For a relationship to be successful we have to be able to make room for the other person.

Anger is one of our most basic human emotions- we all feel angry at times. Anger is an emotion worth listening to because it can be a signal that something is wrong in your relationships or that you are not properly addressing other important issues in your life. Sometimes we suppress emotions such as anger because we do not understand it; we have not been taught how to effectively resolve it or we are afraid of it. Anger can be triggered by past abuses coming to the surface, fear or for your protection. In therapy we can learn about your specific anger reactions, the causes for your anger and learn ways to better to react when we feel angry.

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.

Do you experience anger on a regular basis. Does it impact your relationships? Do you want to learn new ways to deal with anger? I can help you rethink what anger is and how to respond to it. Anger is simply a series of bodily sensations connected to a premeditated thought bubble that loops a cycle that seems impossible to escape. Let's work on breaking that cycle.

Whether you struggle with explosive anger; tend to be reactive and defensive or take things too personally; find yourself feeling resentful, bitter or irritable; tend to collapse or give up in the face of conflict; or bottle things up only to have them resurface later in inappropriate ways, our team can help. Accepting your feelings and body sensations as valuable information; identifying the underlying causes, triggers, and cues of your anger; learning emotion and impulse regulation skills; expressing your feelings and needs more effectively; and setting healthy boundaries assertively are important skills to help you understand, embody and channel your anger in healthy ways.

Anger is like an iceberg. It is only the tip. The other nine-tenths remains hidden and unknown. We need to connect with the nine-tenths, or the primary feelings such as hurt, pain, guilt, shame and fear. I will work with you to unearth your primary feelings and to devise alternative ways to manage your feelings. A good book for you to read is Hold Me Tight by Susan Johnson, especially the chapter "Recognizing the Demon Dialogues."

Anger can be such a frustrating emotion sometimes leaving us feeling shameful for even feeling that way. Men and women are often taught different messages about anger as they are growing up, impacting our experience and delivery of anger as an adult. Anger is a real and valid emotion, but how we express it can sometimes lead to problems. The benefit of working with me is that the emotion of anger does not intimidate me and I am willing to go to those heights with you so that you can learn new ways to express your anger. Heights such as using a kickboxing bag if it will bring you the breakthrough that you have been searching for. Your success matters to me and I know we can figure this out!

Whether we are quick to anger, or slow to rage, anger is not necessarily a bad thing. It’s an emotion, and like all emotions, what we do with them is what matters. Anger is one of the best teachers we have if we can pay attention to what it is trying to tell us. If anger is a challenge in your life, counseling can help you to discover what your anger is trying to teach you. Therapy provides a safe place to look beneath your anger to some of the difficult emotions that you may not want to encounter on your own. In counseling you can learn tools to manage your anger so that you can learn from your anger while not risking your relationships.

“I’m always mad – I lose my temper so easily. I’m just like my Dad and my grandfather – I inherited it from them! While it may be comforting to blame anger on inherited traits, anger is often better seen as a learned emotion. If you feel (or have been told) your anger is out of control, let’s work together to uncover your triggers and what is behind them. From there we’ll look at techniques which will best help you ‘un-learn’ your anger!
