Anger is usually an indication of other deep seated emotions. While working on reducing angry behavior can help live a more peaceful life, getting to the deep seated emotion that drives the behavior is the approach I use. Doing this may not be the desired approach for many; however, the emotional reactions someone has with anger management can can be difficult to manage without understanding what is going on with them.

Using an integrative approach, based on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Assertiveness Training, and Interpersonal Psychology, I seek to understand, raise your consciousness, teach, role play, and develop healthy assertive communication skills and stress management skills. I employ empathy in my approach, trying to understand and raise your consciousness of the background, cognitive distortions, and emotional triggers which perpetuate your angry response. I also try to help you identify what sadness, difficulties with lack of control and uncertainty, and fears may be driving your angered response. I employ homework exercises and stress management development to help you reach these goals.

Part of learning to be in relationship with other people involves managing our anger effectively. Life fire, it can be a positive or negative force, depending on how it's handled. I work with you to understand the differences between passive, assertive, and aggressive anger expression. Through identifying feeling and triggers and exploring family of origin dynamics that influenced how you learned to express your needs, you will begin to learn how to communicate in ways that safeguard rather than sabotage your relationships.

We all experience anger in our lives. I help clients develop healthy ways to experience and express their anger by: • Identifying effective ways to handle anger and express feelings; • Understanding how feelings such as fear, pride and inferiority feed anger; • Transforming negative patterns of thinking, relating and behaving that influence anger; • Learning ways to communicate, resolve conflicts and meet needs successfully; and • Developing a healthy lifestyle that supports a successful life. The constructive use of anger, assertiveness, helps express and preserve our needs, worth, and convictions while considering and respecting the needs and feelings of others.

Living with anger management can cause difficulties in many aspects of a person's world. Personal, professional and community relationships are at risk if one struggles with anger issues. Tools to reduce anger management involve exploring the root of the anger and dissecting it to discern when, how and why certain anger triggers are activated. Once identifying triggers, we work on how the client can learn to channel the anger into a more productive direction be it via physical activity or other appropriate energy releases. There can also be a focus on mindfulness and meditation to help with the overwhelming anger impulses.

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 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

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 is an unresolved issue from the past, which eventually ruins most relationships in a person's future. Anger is an emotion that we all experience. However, how one deals with their anger can become a big part of a problem. For some couples, anger can make it nearly impossible to figure out what the problem is or how to fix it. Counseling will decipher the root of the anger, and then how the client may manage those feelings. Oftentimes, sessions will involve the client, and the people who reside with them. Residents are encouraged to participate in counseling sessions for healing. The biggest challenge to living with a resentful or angry person is to keep from becoming one yourself.
