Anger is a secondary emotion meaning arising when people experience an escalating series of intensifying emotions and with that intensification, feel out of control. To feel back in control, they "act out" by (in no particular order) shout, yell, swear, verbally abuse, break things, drive recklessly, threaten others, and generally drive everyone away from them over time. I teach people to honor their emotions and learn to catch the first inklings of impatience, frustrations, or whatever emotion becomes so uncomfortable for them that they flair. A desire to rid themselves of this potentially sociopathic behavior plus a curiosity to proactively observe themselves is necessary for progress.

Anger is a natural and normal part of being human. Being flooded by anger, and finding you are out of control, is not. Together we can safely discover the emotions beneath overwhelming anger, and find safe, creative ways to release the fear, sadness or hopelessness that often drive anger into explosiveness. Create long-lasting safety in your life for yourself and for those you love.

Anger is secondary to the hurts underneath; it is a symptom of past and current hurts causing the response. I work to help implement changes the client can make in their awareness and approach and concurrently, to help them understand and heal, remove their aloneness, recognize and meet needs and to care for the pain that is underlying. I help them take responsibility and to know they can heal and make changes.

I often describe anger as an "iceberg" emotion: it's what we see, but often it simply masks feelings underneath. My clients have voiced a sense of relief when they realize there are more manageable emotions underneath the anger and we work together to create new skills to manage anger in a healthy way. I commonly work with this issue in the child and adolescent populations.

Anger is simply another form of pain. In my office you can understand a better way of dealing with your anger by understanding what drives it. I give free assessments in session to help you to understand and address your anger management. I have a focus on men in particular, as society has told men for years that anger is the "acceptable" way of showing emotion. Male or female, I can help you learn to control your anger.

Dealing with anger is an issue for many. Often, anger is not the primary feeling. Usually, there are many feelings beneath the anger that give rise to it. We will explore together where your anger is coming from and together we will help you acquire skills that will increase your ability to control your reactions. Learning to curb your tendencies toward anger will leave you feeling empowered and will improve your relationships as well.

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.

Some of the latest studies suggest that the root issue for those experiencing anger issues stem from a sense of self shame. I received training as an Anger Management Specialist I and am trained to work with individuals either through a 12 session course or a combination of coursework and individual therapy. I've found the latter to be very effective in helping people understand their anger response and develop other resources and outlets to manage that powerful emotion

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.

Recognizing that you have a problem and that you need help is a positive step towards change. People with anger issues will often state that they have triggers. In our work together, we will identify what those triggers are, what to do when you are exposed to the trigger, healthy communication skills, healthy boundaries, and healthy relationships. As your therapist, I will walk by your side and help you identify when your thoughts do not reach logical conclusions. We will work together on re-framing how to respond to situations, learn how to relax and stay calm during situations that may be triggering. My approach is non-judgmental, warm and compassionate.

Anger can be terrifying for everyone. Often we have not learned skills on how to handle anger appropriately and in a healthy manner. Anger itself is not a bad emotion, it is how we choose to use it that can cause problems. Sometimes when we react by yelling or shouting we may be perceiving a threat that is not there. When working with clients I help find out the triggers and emotions that bring out the anger and find better ways to express the anger. These skills can help everyone!
