I really don't like the words "anger management" as I think angry feelings have a lot to say to us. We need to acknowledge our anger but that doesn't mean we need to express it in an explosive way. Denying our anger is not healthy and leads to anxiety, depression, and even explosions of anger. Anger is like a wall and behind it are other feelings, often of sadness and hurt. And anger leads to walls which keep us isolated from others.

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.

I do not help clients to "manage" anger. I help them to understand its source and to use it productively rather than destructively. Sometimes it covers up some other feelings that need to be dealt with, and sometimes it is simply directed at the wrong person. By coming to understand your anger better you keep it from making problems and use it to find solutions.

First I help the client to understand the purpose of their anger. There are usually feelings underneath, such as, hurt, sadness, feeling betrayed. Anger is a warning that something is wrong. We explore other ways to handle the issue without acting out the anger. Many people are impulsive and will need to change this habit to learn new ways to deal with their feelings. Groups can be very helpful. It is important to learn how acting out anger affects other people especially those you are close to.

I have run anger management programs for many years. I have an eight week program to assist clients to experience and express their anger and other feelings in ways that are healing. I have also provided couples with ways to communicate their anger so they feel heard and better understood. Often times people are feeling sad or hurt but can only feel safe with the feeling of anger. I will give you tools to express all your feeling to feel calmer and peaceful.

Anger is a natural response to hurt and fear but it can cause more pain in our lives if we use it to hurt others, physically or emotionally. Anger that is destructive, usually comes from an old hurt that we are carrying within us. This hurt has been painfully touched by circumstances or by the actions of someone else. First we need to learn ways to stop our hurtful actions by taking a break or walking away. Then, however, we need to turn our attention to the underlying hurt and to bring compassion and care to our own hurt self. You will find that at the same time, you become more compassionate toward other people.

How do you know if your anger is serious enough to need help? A quick answer is if you find that anger is your go-to, knee-jerk reaction to everyday irritants and disappointments, or if your anger is compromising your quality of life, it may be time to talk to someone. My way of working with angry clients is to both search for the causes of the anger as well as figure out concrete, common-sense ways for anger to be managed on a daily basis. Anger itself is not the problem; often it's the management (or mismanagement) of it that brings on a host of other problems. Maybe you have a right to be angry! But wouldn't it be better to be able to express that anger in a way others can really hear it?

Anyone who has anger issues is a nice person because he/she always puts other people’s needs first. Hence, it’s such a shame to let other people to think you are a bad person! Now it’s about the time to clear your name! When you attend anger management, you will be able to deescalate the intensity of strong emotions, express your anger appropriately instead of being aggressive, and blow off your steam safely without hurting anyone.

Sometimes we do not know why we are angry and what to do to control it. I will help you to learn tools you can use to calm down and deal with things in a positive way. Anger can prevent you from obtaining many of the things you want in life. Once you learn how to identify your triggers you will be able to take steps to prevent that big blowup. We may use meditation and tai chi techniques to put yourself in a calm place.

Anger is energy. The question is whether it is being appropriately focused, whether it is based on realistic expectations, and whether it is running the show versus being an indicator of other issues. I will help you explore the thoughts, feelings, and beliefs underneath your anger and develop tools and plans to better address the hopes, dreams, and injustices that matter most to you.

Anger is a human emotion, and everyone experiences it. The problem comes when we act on our anger in an inappropriate or unhealthy way. My work involves helping clients to identify and change thoughts and behaviors that contribute to their anger and to find more positive ways of expressing anger. We explore relaxation and stress relieving techniques to help the client manage stress. We also may explore underlying emotions and feelings and work on healing any emotional wounds. If the client is in a relationship, I will work with the couple to help them connect and change the dynamics in their relationship that contribute to the anger.

I specialize in Mr. Nice Guy/ Ms. Nice Gals. So often the stress and frustration that underlies our angry outbursts comes from taking so much on or having so much our plate. Just as hard as we work for others we can learn ways to better assert our needs and preferences, set limits, and stand up for our self care. Using goal targeted talk therapy and holistic methods that fit each person's style I can help you get more (respect, response, of what and how you want things, space, peace, etc), by knowing what and how
