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 in and of itself is not a bad thing. Rather, it’s a normal emotion that all people will experience. However, when you choose to let your anger control you and make poor or rash decisions because of it, it becomes a problem that needs to be acknowledged and dealt with. Anger management is about learning how to express yourself and your emotions without becoming explosive and hurting others, whether emotionally or physically.

Anger is one of the most power and expressive human emotions, but unless it is understood and channeled appropriately it ends up destroying lives. The uniqueness of anger comes from its ability to hide and consume other emotions. Through counseling you will learn how to distinguish anger from other emotions. You will also learn the source of your anger, to appreciate your anger, positive ways to express your anger, and ways to control your anger instead of it controlling you.

Do you get furious when you're behind a slow driver? Do relatives get upset because you get so angry so often? Are you ashamed or embarrassed when you see yourself having temper tantrums, or saying things to co-workers or strangers that you wish you hadn't said? Have you lost friends or jobs, or been arrested, due to actions you took when you were angry? If any of those things apply, you need help learning that anger is normal, but expressing it appropriately is a skill you can learn. I can help you learn to de-stress and deal with life's everyday trials in a better way.

Anger is an emotion that is common to all people. Many times it is misunderstood as a "bad" emotion, but it is generally the behaviors associated with the emotion of anger that is unhealthy. Anger therapy is designed to help the person understand the root of this "secondary" emotion which is a response to hurt, fear and frustration or for self preservation. The goal is to assist the person in changing unhealthy expressions of anger into ways of responding that allow for achieving personal and relational goals.

Everyone experiences anger at one time or another…it can be a normal and healthy response to life’s challenges. But when it becomes explosive, hostile or abusive, counseling can help you sort out the underlying emotions, triggers and patterns that develop as a result. Road rage, fighting and aggressive outbursts are just a few examples of how anger can spiral out of control. Counseling can help individuals understand the different aspect of angry feelings and behaviors, allowing for increased self-control, healthy functioning and improved relationships and self-esteem.

Anger is just another emotion that humans experience in this journey of life. Sometimes anger is about needing protection from something we may or may not understand - physically, emotionally, spiritually. Oftentimes outward anger is actually a cover or "mask" for underlying issues that need to be looked at, like: fear, frustration, pain, hurt, etc. Learning to process the whole package instead of giving in to the power of our anger, while engaged in the true pain of a situation can be unhealthy to us and our relationships. Learning to key to slowing your process down is powerful and freeing!

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.

Anger, like all emotional pain, begins with a feeling of powerlessness. When we feel powerless to make something the way we think it should be, even something simple, like trying to get our child to pick up a pair of socks or trying to get our spouse to understand something, we first feel powerless. When you feel powerless and then try to get control, that is anger. Trying to get control may take the form of yelling to make your child pick up his socks or threatening to leave to try to get your spouse to understand. Anger, though, is not loving. While you can't control how you feel, you can learn to control your actions. Learn how to turn anger into loving action with simple principles
