My task as a counselor is to educate my patient on how to feel his/her feelings. People receive information from what emotions they are experiencing, even anger. For example, maybe anger arises because of the need to set limits. Anger can help motivate a person to set appropriate limits. I would help my patient face his/her rage in session; without anxiety and without defense mechanisms kicking in. Once the client learns to tolerate his/her feelings, then and only then will they be able to take their Counselor's advice, including my own.

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 management is a therapeutic approach to help a person learn tools for managing anger, for keeping it under control. My approach is to, along with this, also address what you are is angry about and work to understand and get at the source of the anger. That is, I see anger to a symptom more than the problem itself and therapy helps by you not only to manage your anger by using anger management tools, but more importantly to deal with what you are actually about in the first place and resolve and heal this.

I see lots of angry teenagers. They disrespect parents and teachers, punch holes in walls, say mean things to siblings, refuse to help out around the house, or are surly and sarcastic and make everyone walk on eggshells around them. Anger management works fine if the person wants to manage their anger, but most of the angry teens brought to my office have no interest in managing their anger—they want people to know they're angry because that's the only way they feel their message will be heard. I help these kids find other ways to express themselves, and help parents hear and appreciate the message—even while disagreeing with it—so that the "heat" leaves, allowing for genuine discussion.

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.

Pottstown, Pennsylvania 19465

Anger only is the 'top of the volcano'. What I really find important for my clients is to understand the underlying issues and emotions that fuel the volcano. I am approaching anger management from three angles: 1) Anger is a strong physical reaction and I consider it essential for my clients to learn relaxation practices to stay in touch with their calm. 2)Anger is fueled by destructive and often self-destructive thoughts and I believe that it is very helpful for clients to be able to identify and shift these thoughts. 3) Anger is defensive emotion and it is essential for clients to gain access to their deeper emotions in order to self-soothe.

Appropriately expressed anger is a useful human emotion. Unfortunately, if you are struggling with excessive internal rage & accumulated anger, you can be easily triggered & find yourself out of control. This experience is obviously destructive to others, but you are suffering deeply as well. After lashing out toward loved ones, you are left with feelings of self-loathing & frustration at your inability to control your own emotions. These negative feelings can contribute to more accumulated anger - so the cycle continues. No one wants to live this way. You can choose to bravely explore this vicious cycle of anger. Heal yourself - heal your relationships - heal your life. You can do this!

Let’s face it, life can often be quite frustrating!! With so much going on every day, the sources of anger are endless, (a difficult boss, bills you can’t pay or disagreeing with your spouse yet again). Everyone expresses anger in their own way. If you are like a lot of people, you bottle up your anger and then something happens that to others seems like no big deal but to you it is just the “tip of the iceberg”. Before you know it, you are saying things you don’t mean and can never take back. In therapy, we can work together to help you learn to recognize what sets you off, how to best deal with it and how to say what you feel without hurting the ones you love the most!

Anger management problems are often due to another underlying problem. Many people "hold in" and stifle their anger again and again - until finally there is a Mt. Vesuvius style eruption. The key is in learning to address issues earlier in the game to prevent the build up of resentment. Susan helps people learn to express their feelings appropriately and to set and maintain boundaries. Many people find that with attention to these new skills, they are able to prevent inappropriate "explosions" of anger. Some people have a history of deeply hurt feelings underlying the anger outbursts, and these feelings need to be expressed and healed to prevent difficulty with anger outbursts.

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 management requires a thorough assessment of the patient/client. It is important to understand is roots, underlying issues, triggers and to provide the tools to manage the emotions and behavior. Alternative coping skills are important to address this. Stress management and impulse control training as well as substance abuse issues have to be considered. In some cases, medication can be useful. Individual, marital and family work needs to be considered.
