Anger is not necessarily bad. It is the instinctual response of being interrupted in the pursuit of a goal. We all need that upsurge of energy to push back when we feel we are pushed or deprived or hurt. But because anger is a very powerful emotional expression it can be hurtful to others or scary or dangerous. Therefore we need to be able to manage our anger in a productive and problem solving way rather than making things worse or even abusive to others. My approach in working with you is to explore your individual situation and offer tools to help you understand your anger and learn to manage it effectively.

Many people with anger problems have a hard time seeing that it is their ideas and beliefs that are causing their anger. There are always going to be people and situations that do not live up to your expectations and values. Learning to resolve such conflicts without hating or hurting or humiliating others can be found in anger management treatment. Controlling immediate impulses and considering the consequences of actions is another effective method. These techniques take practice to learn and the fundamentals can be taught by me.
