Pamela Polcyn, Ph.D, MFT

Licensed Marriage And Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Olivenhain, CA

Understanding anger and its components can transform your relationship to others and yourself. Through increased clarity about the thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that create and maintain anger states you can learn to create the space and conditions needed to release anger and create a more peaceful and compassionate approach towards yourself and others. Anger can be a powerful motivator when clearly understood. Seeing the innocence in another's behavior can prevent the old habits of blame and resentment that have a poisonous effect on relationships and on ourselves. Developing patience and compassion can contribute to the growth of happiness in ourselves and in others.

Do you have angry outbursts that leave you feeling frustrated with yourself? Do you feel stuck and unsure if you can change? Are you looking for more than methods to 'manage' your anger? I help people with anger issues to deal with the emotions that trigger the anger -- such as hurt, fear or shame. When those deeper issues are dealt with, people no longer 'go from zero to sixty' and are able to feel good about how they react to stress. I look forward to working with you.

Anger Management

Patricia Kelly Michals, LCSW, MFT

Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Marriage Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Olivenhain, CA

To understand anger means getting in touch with the inner feelings that outer situations can trigger. Anger is not about external events as much as it is about our own inner reality. Anger is often felt by men who are depressed. They don't feel depressed, just angry, irritable, explosive, etc. Once they begin to explore WHY they are feeling angry the work of managing and healing anger can begin. My work is not simply learning to count to 10 before speaking, or other tools that are useful to learn. It's about developing a quiet mastery of self and being the person you want to be...self confident, calm, and able to handle what comes your way.

Anger Management

Adrienne Levy, MS, BSN, RN, LPC, NCC

Licensed Marriage Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Olivenhain, CA

I help clients understand that anger often points to some other issue that may need their attention, then teaching them the skills to recognize and attend that issue effectively. Emotions often occur in clusters, like constellations of stars in the sky. When anger occurs, fright might be an underlying cause. Usually the angry person is not aware of feeling afraid, but is very aware of fury. Another example could be when boundaries are violated. We get angry when someone "steps on our toes". Then the task is to reset the boundary, not just "manage" anger.

Anger Management

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

Within Driving Distance of Olivenhain, CA

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 Management

Aleksandra Drecun, Psy.D.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Within Driving Distance of Olivenhain, CA

Anger is a normal human emotion. The manner in which individuals exhibit their emotions, particularly anger can be constructive or destructive. If individuals are able to constructively channel their anger, the experience and management of anger leads to neutral or positive outcomes. However, if an individual manifests their anger in a unhealthy manner, it can negatively affect any facet of their lives from their personal relationships to their professional lives. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is key to learning to effectively manage anger. With this approach, clients learn to identify and substitute unhealthy trigger thoughts with healthy thoughts and to utilize anger-reducing strategies.

Anger Management

The Center for Change, M.S., M.A., LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Olivenhain, CA

As the anger within a person builds, the world in which it lives increasingly reflects the anger that it must heal, so that eventually, the person will see that it is creating its own experiences and perceptions and that its righteous anger originates with itself. I will help you get to the core of the anger which is really an expression of unhealed pain. There is no need to continue to push those you love away through your anger, which creates the loss you fear most.

Anger Management

Stephanie Knatz Peck, Ph.D, BCIAA

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Within Driving Distance of Olivenhain, CA

For some, anger can be a difficult emotion to control. Learn skills to be in control of your anger rather than having your anger control you. If you are someone who struggles with managing anger and other negative emotions, Dr. Peck can teach you effective coping strategies to regulate your emotions to prevent emotions from becoming negative actions. Emotion regulation strategies can both prevent upswings in negative emotion and teach you effective ways to tolerate painful emotions without acting on them. Skills taught are based on Dialectical Behavior Therapy, biofeedback training, and behavioral relaxation skills.

Anger Management

Tami Chelew, MA, CSAT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist - LMFT #79759

Within Driving Distance of Olivenhain, CA

Often anger is a form of protest of some injustice that has been done. The adaptive action tendency when one is flooded with anger is to help one assert themselves with an advocacy of self in healthy ways. Managing your anger vs. having your anger manage you is a way to be in healthy control of yourself which will benefit your close relationships with others and within yourself.
