Because you are seeking therapy for Anger Management, you are willing to do an honest inventory of how you know this is a problem. How is it impacting the relationship(s) most important to you? What feelings are you wanting to communicate? How did your early family relationships impact your way of communicating? We will work on your image of yourself as a lovable adult and on learning self-soothing and self-control skills.

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.
