I work with the client in regards to current anger, past history of anger, and family history of anger. I work with the client to identify current stress, and to especially identify emotions including sadness, fear, confusion, and to identify coping skills to either work with family members, a boss, or co-workers. I feel that improving communication skills, problem solving skills, and developing a strong support network are vital to better understand and work regarding anger in a healthy, non-threatening way.

Healthy anger is intended to communicate a problem in relationship that needs attention. It is intended to say this is important take it seriously. Many people think of anger as the blaming, yelling, controlling behavior that is destructive to relationships, and prevents healthy communication. Those with a genuine desire to change can learn to manage their feelings in healthy ways that build rather then destroy relationships. I work with clients to help them identify and manage their feelings and needs and direct their actions toward self-confidence, and empathy for others.
