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.

When working to address anger management issues, I help people learn how to identify stressors, take necessary steps to remain calm, and handle tense situations in a constructive, positive manner.

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.

Thich Nhat Hanh stated that war within leads to war outside of ourselves. So long as we war with ourselves, we will manifest war with others. Finding the courage to be compassionate and caring for all parts of ourselves is the antidote to this war. So, we seek to make a treaty with all the parts of ourselves. There is no solution to anger, however, working on being compassionate and caring toward ourselves and others will ultimately lead us away from anger.

Using the Angerbusters model, we'll look at how to keep anger from controlling your life, or better live with someone with an anger problem. This is a model that sees anger as a "cover emotion" that, for some people, should not be indulged. Toxic anger can endanger not only marriages, but careers, friendships and other family relationships. The model is extremely practical, with specific ideas to adopt and scripts to say in everyday life.

Do you feel that your anger is out of control but can't seem to control it no matter what you do. You might feel a rush of adrenaline, and noradrenaline, which is simply a physical response. That response can lead to aggressive behavior. You might feel that you have to hold in your anger or you will "explode". Anger can and maybe already has lead to many negative behaviors and broken relationships. I can teach you how to recognize signs of anger and help you work through anger in a healthy way.

You don't have to be a slave to your anger and your impulses. You can take control of your emotions and behaviors with the right skills. To experience emotion is to be human and each emotion serves a very valuable purpose. You can learn like many others to be in control of your emotions instead of being dominated by them. Regardless of how powerful your emotions are you do not have to be powerless to them.

Anger is usually caused by shoulds or demands that you impose upon others. You argue with what is, demanding that what you want is what should be. Anger is truly one of the hardest emotions to shift out of when you're really feeling it strongly. In working with you on your anger, I will start by just listening and trying to understand why you're feeling hurt, betrayed, abandoned, abused, neglected, or deprived in some fashion. Then I will teach you to evaluate what is in your control & what isn't, so we can help you to focus upon what is in your control. In addition, I will teach you appropriate ways to express yourself, and to shift out of demandingness, into stating what you prefer

Rightful anger has an important place in life where and when it must be expressed. However, there are many forms of anger that are internally destructive and can become externally dangerous to ourselves and others. Some forms of anger come from long term contentious relationships and occurrences which can never go away or decrease in pain and agitation. Some forms of anger are explosive on the moment and other anger comes as a gradual escalating irritation that then reaches its limits. Counseling serves to teach skills of anger management and can defuse and even prevent out of control anger from erupting. Counseling is known to be very effective for addressing and safely controlling anger.

We best manage our anger when we approach it from two angles. The first is to examine and change our behavior. There is always a predictive pattern to an anger escalation. Once we learn this and understand this path, we can engage it differently and have an improved outcome. Secondly, for longer term relief, we need to examine how we think and how we can begin to see life differently and get our needs met in healthier ways. Healthy anger is simply the slight boost of energy we feel when we engage something that is not right or is unfair (at least to us!). Learning how to deal with the thoughts and feelings around this will give us more tools and better outcomes.

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.

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 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!
