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.

There are anger management classes to be found here in Southern NH, and I can refer you to psychologists and counselors in Manchester as well as Nashua. I do not provide classes in my practice. I provide individual counseling tailored to your needs and circumstances. One-on-one, we work to understand the complex patterns of thoughts, feelings and behaviors that constitute anger. Typically this means exploring in considerable detail the situations where you experience anger, your perceptions, the automatic thought processes and recurring themes, and the habitual behavioral reactions that result ... and the feedback loops, so to speak, that can maintain these difficulties over many years.

Anger is a complex and often misrepresented emotion. The danger of undiagnosed, high levels of anger can have harmful consequences for individuals, families and careers. As we work together, I can help you understand patterns of anger and its origins, as well as how to calm that part of you, and how to repair the relationships that were damaged as a result of anger directed at others. Examples of questions to ask yourself are: How has your anger been a liability to you and/or your loved ones? What has been the most profound cost of your anger? In the past, how have you had success controlling your anger or keeping it at bay? When your anger is better, who will be the first person to notice?

Women often have a hard time getting mad, and turn anger inward. Men often have difficulty keeping anger in check, and can be threatening or passive aggressive. And vice versa. No matter your style, anger is a problem when it blinds you to using good judgment, costs you a relationship or job, or causes you to use your power inappropriately, or to fear confronting it directly. My treatment approach helps clients understand their anger, where it comes from, how it serves them and what is hurt. You'll learn why certain triggers set you off and how to manage your reflexive responses more productively. If anger is causing you or others injury, therapy can make the difference for good.
