In terms of managing your anger, it is important to understand that anger is often the minds' way of protecting you, or of defending you from something. Often, people feel as if they have been a victim of something, and then they will act out in anger because they feel as if they need to protect themselves. If you understand why, it may be easier to get past the point of simply having outbursts.

Anger is one of the primary human emotions, but if you are struggling with an excessive amount of anger or a bad temper, therapy can give you new techniques to reduce your anger or to release it in a healthier way. Whether it be a coping mechanism, a way to distance yourself, or you dont know how to communicate without it, my goal is to address the source of your anger and then deconstruct those destructive patterns.

Anger is profoundly powerful. It can protect, advocate, change, make itself heard, seen, felt. It is this power that makes it an easy tool, something that we are often taught - usually through difficult circumstances - to use. While there is a time and place for anger, it often overwhelms those boundaries and overshadows other useful tools as well - such as compassion, empathy, peacefulness, and patience. As your therapist, we work together to strengthen those other useful and powerful tools, while also working to look at the roots of anger and frustration and give them the attention and care that they need, so that they can be used in appropriate and mindful ways.

Anger is a very normal emotion, but has to be managed carefully so as not to cause damage to relationships. In working with individuals who have difficulty managing their anger, I help develop strategies to recognize the anger before it "boils over", and find appropriate ways to express the anger and reduce the liklihood of it recurring. Without dealing with the anger, people often develop problems with depression, or express the anger in ways that get themselves in to trouble.
