Anger Management is a specialty of our center. Research indicates that anger problems can be made worse by therapists practicing ineffective techniques. So you wan to be sure your clinician is practicing the right form of anger management. The good news is there is also plenty of scientific support to show that effective anger management can reduce anger symptoms in as few as 12-20 sessions. In fact, a study published by one of our staff members indicated that in addition to anger being reduced, but depression symptoms decreased as well. If you, or a loved one, suffer from anger problems, please call us with any questions you may have. We understand how far reaching these issues can be.

Anger is a completely normal, usually healthy, human emotion unless it gets out of control and turns destructive. This leads to problems—problems at work, in your personal relationships, and in the overall quality of your life. I work with clients to help them take back control of their emotions. We start by identifying the feelings attached to anger to uncover ways to express these emotions without causing harm to relationships.

Repeated anger can be costly, both physically and emotionally. As chronic anger makes people rigid and highly defensive, it is likely to have a negative effect on your health, to damage your relationships with others and to limit your life experiences and ability to achieve happiness. Anger can hinder, wear down, or even destroy intimate relationship. At the same time, anger can serve as an opportunity for individual growth and enhance intimate relationship. Managing emotions, specifically anger, improves our skills to resolve anger and conflict while enabling us to develop more healthy and happy relationships.

I provide anger management for court mandated or voluntary treatment and work with a wide variety of people of all ages and backgrounds. By examining the underlying feelings that are difficult to tolerate and trigger aggressive responses and working on relaxation, mindful behavior and communication patterns, you will see positive results. Anger is a feeling we all experience, but if your behavior causes negative consequences, we will explore your history, your sensitivities and your feelings that need to be understood. There is no shame or blame in my treatment and you will gain control of your behavior and interactions.

I address problems of aggression targeting the psychological mechanisms that allow an individual to control the behavioral outcome of anger arousal. Patience, exhibiting composure, engaging in constructive problem solving, pausing for thought, and visualizing consequences are some of the desired results. The individual will practice new strategies for responding to provocations. The methods I utilize are not intended for severe aggression or for disordered behavior but rather are intended to reduce counterproductive behaviors that arise in ordinary people in day to day situations.

We all have certain emotions that are easier for us to express than others. While some have difficulty expressing anger, others find it the "safest" emotion to express. For those of you who have problems managing your angry expression we will explore together, how and when this pattern has developed, what purpose it has served in your life, and what other feelings this anger may be masking. Our work together will provide you with tools to healthily and respectfully express the full range of your emotions to enhance the emotional richness and range in your relationships with others.

Helping you find wholeness...

Not being able to control how you act or speak out of anger can be very damaging in some or all of your relationships (parent-child, with a significant other, among friends, even at work). Having uncontrollable anger and feeling angry all the time also does not feel good for the person with those feelings and it's possible to feel regret afterwards for what you have said or done. There is hope, however. Through exploring the anger and practicing techniques that you will learn, you can get to the stage where you can manage your anger (e.g. get angry about the right things and express it appropriately), leading back to a sense of wholeness and peace. Christopher and you can journey there.

Many of us learned in life that we're powerless, unable to change the very things that so deeply impact and hurt us, robbing us of happiness and success. It makes us angry, resentful, and full of rage. But you don't have to be a prisoner of that neverending dynamic. Learn to face you hurts, take responsibility for your needs, and tools for healthy, constructive emotional expression that builds relationships.

Getting angry is a natural emotion, one that is sometimes hard to control, but often unhelpful. Do you find that you go from 0-100 in the blink of an eye? Well, you're not alone. When angry, it's challenging to see and think clearly. I can help you slow this "blink of an eye" down so you can better manage your anger and angry reactions. I will teach you how to identify your triggers, examine your "anger chain of actions" and develop strategies to help you feel more in control of the situation and able to think and see clearly even in the most strenuous of times.

Sometimes anger is a response to feeling misunderstood: you cannot believe that the other person does not see what is evident to you. At other times, anger is an expression of frustration because you cannot attain a goal or you are prevented (by others or by life situations) from reaching a desired landmark in your life. As a therapist, I will help you understand what is fueling your anger, and once you get a better sense of this, you will be able use emotional energy to deal with the underlying personal frustration instead of wasting it in staying angry.

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.
