We have all faced circumstances in life that provoke anger. It is a very healthy and natural reaction to some stressful and problematic situations. Sometimes, however, these reactions go too far and hurt the people we love. There are several techniques that work well to reduce angry outbursts and aggressive responses directed at others. I can help you or your child discover strategies to remain calm in stressful situations and channel energy into emotional problem solving that leads to healthier and more positive outcomes.

Do you find that at times you lose your temper more quickly that you want to? Are your relationships suffering because of the problem? I use a two-fold process to help those with anger management issues make improvements. First, you will learn coping tools to reduce your tendency to get angry quickly, as well as learn better ways to express it. It can be done! Secondly, we understand what types of situations cause you to be triggered, as well as exploring what deeper issues may be involved with what you find triggering. You will be a person with greater self-awareness, with more choices, and you will feel much more in control of yourself.

You can learn to manage your anger by recognizing where emotions come from and learning alternatives to getting angry, ones that are far more likely to get you what you really want and need. Anger is generally a secondary emotion. You can learn to identify what feelings are underneath the anger and how to express those appropriately instead. Anger is not necessary or helpful.

Anger can be a healthy response to having boundaries violated or feeling mistreated and disrespected. However, sometimes we can overreact and express our anger in inappropriate ways. I can help you understand what triggers you anger and address the underlying vulnerabilities and sensitivities that get activated when you get angry. By addressing the underlying causes of anger, we can help you gain more control over when and how you express it, without ignoring your needs.

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.

I help clients identify Hot Buttons, more vulnerable feelings under the anger. I help clients learn to assert their thoughts and feelings without control or violating the emotional or physical boundaries of others. Anger Management involves two healthy ways to express anger: 1- Assert 2- If your need is not acknowledge, let it go. Validation is a helpful tool in de-escalating the other person. Managing anger vs. fight or flight responses is practiced.

Anger, like other emotions, is neither good nor bad. Anger alerts our body and mind to know, simply, a problem exists that needs to be solved. Without anger, we become “door mats” where people “walk all over us”. Finding the solution that anger seeks can be tricky. The anger goal is to solve the problem; with the “rule” of not hurting ourselves, someone else, and actually making the problem smaller, not bigger. The challenge is when our “stuff” gets in the way. We “lose our cool”; allowing aggressiveness versus assertiveness to run the show. My approach allows people to find their voice, keep their personal power, while preserving relationships and solving the anger problem.

Lets face it, life can be overwhelming at times. We sometimes look up and realize that our anger and irritability are negatively impacting our life. I tailor each session for each individual. Whether it be exploring old wounds from our past, providing a directive therapy, such as CBT or DBT, or sharing tools to reduce anger, my passion is to help each person live their most fulfilling life.

Anger, like all emotions, serves a purpose. It can tell us when something is wrong, when we have been hurt, when we perceive someone has been wronged, and when we feel threatened. It can also motivate and energize us to change something in our relationships with others and in our world more broadly. Anger, however, can turn ugly when it is expressed in destructive ways, when it blocks other emotions we are trying desperately not to feel, and/or when it is pervasive and unending. Together, we will work to understand the real reasons for your anger and give you new strategies that will allow you to utilize and express anger in ways to shape a better life for yourself and those you care about.

Anger is there for a reason, and is a real expression of human emotion. It is when anger takes over, and begins to negatively impact relationships, jobs, and personal happiness that it becomes a problem. I work with individuals to help them be in control of their life rather than their anger being in control. Together we work with proven techniques to reduce, and manage anger in efforts to bring forth a more satisfying life.

I have conducted anger management groups nearly every week for a 6 year period from 1997 to 2003. Since then I have obtained my doctorate and have gone on to conduct dozens of individual sessions. I have written many letters to the courts on behalf of clients. The first phase in my treatment approach involves identifying as many physical signs and symptoms that you are becoming distressed. With practice one can often recognize anger sooner and this is helpful because the sooner anger is recognized, the easier it is to manage. Typically thoughts and actions both drive feelings. The next step then is to learn methods to self-soothe using actions and positive self-talk. Many more techniques.

“Often anger is a sign of engagement with life. People who are angry are touched deeply by the events of their lives & feel strongly about them. “…Anger is just a demand for change, a passionate wish for things to be different… And, as it was for me, it may be the first expression of the will to live.” ~from Kitchen Table Wisdom Anger is a natural phenomenon. As a human being on this planet, you will become angry. And yet, it seems to be the most feared of all emotions. We suppress it instead of learning how to express it appropriately. In working with you in therapy, we will look at how you have learned to not express your anger and how you might approach it differently.....

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.
