Individuals will develop the ability to understand some of the origins of their anger and how that relates to their acted-out anger behaviors. Strategies will be developed collaboratively in order to intervene early and effectively in appropriately managing the anger. Individuals will also develop skills for appropriate communication of their feelings to those they interact with on a daily basis. Learning to be assertive of themselves without aggression, maintaining respect of others, is a goal of the therapy.

I have over a decade of experience working with people who had anger issues. I find that the Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) model of therapy to be highly effective at helping people to overcome their anger. Also, meditation can be tremendously helpful to some people, and I can help teach people Yan Xin Qigong, which I learned when I did my 1st degree at UCONN. I also like to consider family and relationship issues, which sometimes benefit very well from my marriage and family therapy training. I welcome people to contact me if they want to see me or get a referral. (Please check with your insurance for coverage of anger management, as some don't cover it, or not when court ordered).

Because "lashing out" or difficulty managing anger can happen for many reasons, I tailor my approach to each person. I first try to understand why it is happening, and treat the underlying reasons. Some people have powerful emotions and need skills to manage them, others have a traumatic past that needs exploration, while others may have anxiety or depression and may feel extremely irritable, thus "snapping" at their loved ones.

Anger is a part of a person, not the whole person. When working with an angry person, I help them to notice that anger is just one aspect of themselves. We often use Internal Family Systems therapy to help people to have more compassion for themselves, and for their anger. This compassion can unlock a healing experience for a person. I also use a cognitive approach, helping people to notice that their interpretation of events may or may not be correct, and they may be reacting to something in an excessive way. We develop skills for containing reactions until the person is calmer. We also work on skills for avoiding the escalation of many potential situations.

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.

Is your anger causing problems in your life? Let me help! Anger may have become problematic because of an ongoing pattern of suppressing feelings or of keeping things to yourself. It may be coming out in unhealthy ways because of difficulties being assertive or standing up for oneself assertively. Alternately, a lack of skills in managing feelings maybe the source of the problem. Whatever the reasons that you anger has become problematic, I can help. I am easy to talk to, down to earth, non-judgmental, and practical.
