Anger is usually a more surface emotion for a deeper emotion such as fear or sadness. Anger can be like a flashing light on a dashboard of a car, indicating trouble inside. It is important to learn to diffuse and go to the root of this symptom. Looking at family of origin issues explains anger that many times seems inappropriate for current situations. I believe a person's past is the key to enjoying the present and fulfilling dreams of the future.

Anger is a secondary emotion, it never exists in a vacuum. This means that all anger has its source, whether it be unmet needs, frustration, guilt, shame etc. A large part of anger management counseling is uncovering the primary emotion, revealing the source and understanding where the anger is coming from. Often, this knowledge alone is more than half the battle. There are other techniques as well that can help you overcome your anger when you feel like you're going to "flip your lid."

Anger can get triggered in situations where you feel disrespected, shamed, rejected, powerless, not heard, not valued, or not safe. My approach for helping clients reduce their anger is to identify past experiences that elicit anger, frustration, fear, shame or other upsetting emotions and negative thoughts now, and then to reprocess those memories with EMDR therapy. I have also helped clients understand why they feel they need to hold on to their anger and then work through the blocks to letting the anger go while still helping them find other ways to feel in control, heard, respected or safe. Note: I do not offer Anger Management classes to meet work or court ordered requirements.

Do you have difficulty controlling your temper? Do you lack a sense of inner peace? Anger is a healthy emotion, but when it gets out of control, it can become toxic. It destroys your work day; it hurts your relationships with the people you care about, and most importantly ~ it hurts you. Utilizing cognitive-based mindfulness strategies, I can help you learn how to modulate the thoughts and emotions that cause your anger, discover its roots, and help you live your life from a place of balance and authenticity.

No safer place. No better time. Life is too short to live like a volcano, not knowing when the next eruption will occur. Anger is the most destructive of all emotions, and the least productive. If you have lost jobs or relationships because of your anger, then I can help. While you may feel your anger is not an issue, or even a helpful tool to get what you want, it is costing you valuable life resources, and affecting your physical health. I can help you learn how to live life in control while still being able to express yourself emotionally. I can help you find joy in life, resulting in others enjoying you.

Learning to recognize all of our emotions and work with those emotions rather than having those emotions run the show is critical to having balance in life and relationships. Through mindfulness training and mindfulness based cognitive therapy clients are able to learn to contain and channel the emotional energy of anger in a way that is healthy for themselves and their relationships with 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.

Very often people find that their angry outbursts surprise them (and those around them). This occurs most often because we haven't dealt with the real source of the anger. Clients often try to convince themselves that they are "over it" or that "it doesn't matter" when, in fact, they aren't over it and it does matter. I see this quite a lot in women - who tend to be socialize not to show anger. Therefore it leaks out in more passive aggressive and subtle ways. It's still anger - but it can be inflicted on herself or the true reason for the anger can be veiled making it difficult for others to figure how why there is an outburst.

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.

If you find yourself feeling unusually angry at your partner, or feeling angry much of the time toward several other people, I can help you get to the bottom of your stewing anger. I can help you understand the reaction in the brain that makes you want to fight, as well as how sweeping it under the rug leads to blowing up. I can teach you ways to interrupt your anger before it builds and to express it in appropriate ways so that you can improve your relationships with others instead of damage them with anger. If you have been engaging in physically abusive/aggressive behavior, please seek help from a Family Violence Intervention Program.
