In psychotherapy patients can benefit from anger management counseling by learning to better manage powerful emotions such as anger and rage. Patients can also learn to manage strong impulses and modify their behavior. Another focus of anger management may be improving one's communication skills to reduce the drive toward "acting-out." Improvements in these various areas can have positive and long lasting effects on interpersonal relationships.

My main approach is to help my client identify situations (contexts), people, behaviors (his and others) that seem to usher in varying degrees of anger. My main message is that anger is an appropriate feeling to loss and frustration, but it is his learning to appropriately express anger in an adaptive manner that leads to emotional growth and the mollification of the anger itself.

Anger is a completely normal, often healthy, emotion. But when it gets out of control and turns destructive, it can lead to problems at work, in your personal relationships, and in the quality of your overall life. You cannot avoid all the situations or people that anger you, nor can you change them, but you can learn to control your reactions to them. We will work to reduce the intensity of your emotions and the physiological arousal that anger causes you, through the use of strategies such as cognitive restructuring, relaxation, problem solving, improved communication, humor, and changing your environment.

People often come into my office and say that they have no control over their anger, that they just "lost it." I work with my clients to help them understand that they do have control over their anger. I teach them anger management strategies to increase awareness of their feeling states on a regular basis so that they can recognize and address the warning signs before letting the anger build. There are several techniques that clients can use when they recognize the warning signs. My clients and I fill their "toolbox" with as many strategies as possible to calm themselves down and think rationally.

Anger is a completely normal, usually healthy, human emotion unless it gets out of control and turns destructive. This leads to problems—problems at work, in your personal relationships, and in the overall quality of your life. I work with clients to help them take back control of their emotions. We start by identifying the feelings attached to anger to uncover ways to express these emotions without causing harm to relationships.

Anger Management is a specialty of our center. Research indicates that anger problems can be made worse by therapists practicing ineffective techniques. So you wan to be sure your clinician is practicing the right form of anger management. The good news is there is also plenty of scientific support to show that effective anger management can reduce anger symptoms in as few as 12-20 sessions. In fact, a study published by one of our staff members indicated that in addition to anger being reduced, but depression symptoms decreased as well. If you, or a loved one, suffer from anger problems, please call us with any questions you may have. We understand how far reaching these issues can be.

We all have certain emotions that are easier for us to express than others. While some have difficulty expressing anger, others find it the "safest" emotion to express. For those of you who have problems managing your angry expression we will explore together, how and when this pattern has developed, what purpose it has served in your life, and what other feelings this anger may be masking. Our work together will provide you with tools to healthily and respectfully express the full range of your emotions to enhance the emotional richness and range in your relationships with others.

Repeated anger can be costly, both physically and emotionally. As chronic anger makes people rigid and highly defensive, it is likely to have a negative effect on your health, to damage your relationships with others and to limit your life experiences and ability to achieve happiness. Anger can hinder, wear down, or even destroy intimate relationship. At the same time, anger can serve as an opportunity for individual growth and enhance intimate relationship. Managing emotions, specifically anger, improves our skills to resolve anger and conflict while enabling us to develop more healthy and happy relationships.
