I will help you adopt a more composed style, one where you can communicate your thoughts without becoming confrontational. I’ll assist you in harnessing your positive traits and in applying them to managing your anger. In our sessions, we’ll discuss that anger is more of a secondary emotion to more primary feelings such as fear, guilt, shame, powerlessness, or sadness. Together, we will identify the triggers that upset you, so that you can be more self-aware and develop coping skills. Reducing anger will improve your self-image, patience, interactions with family and career success, while reducing health issues such as headache and backaches. Contact me to discuss how counseling can work for you.

Anger is a natural emotion everyone experiences. Anger can even have purpose: to bring us to action during injustice or even to protect others from harm. If however, anger escalates and hurts others emotionally or physically therapy is needed. I have heard clients say, "it's in my genes", or "so and so makes me so mad...". Perhaps, but truth is, there is never a good reason to let anger take control our lives. Relationships suffer, and often we hurt the people we love. My approach to therapy is to help you find balance. We will look at what your triggers , where, when anger is most present, how it affects you physically. Together, we find the tools you need to find a healthier way.
