Many people have quick tempers and are easily flooded with unhappy emotions. Using new information from neuroscience, we help people learn to observe and think about their own anger process, and then learn ways to re-evaluate and apply “antidote” thoughts to the angry ones. Conversely, many people carry resentment and grudges, and have a lively inner critic of themselves or others, but don’t know how to effectively request what they need and want. They may stew rather than share the needs for safety, control or connection which fuel the anger. Again, we help people follow the feelings, re-appraise them, and come up with a whole different set of actions and reactions. And then practice them in rea....

Anger is an emotion that, when expressed assertively treats self and others with dignity, and helps us stand up for ourselves to clarify and express what we need or want, like or don't like, etc. On the other hand, anger, as an automatic defense strategy, can damage both ourrelationships and personal health. As a defense strategy, anger is expressed in one of two ways. Some express their resentment outwardly, such as with yelling, and others express it inwardly, by withdrawing, stewing with resentment inside. Awareness of inner thoughts, emotions & body's signals, and understanding how brain & body work together are keys to regulating anger.

Anger is energy. The question is whether it is being appropriately focused, whether it is based on realistic expectations, and whether it is running the show versus being an indicator of other issues. I will help you explore the thoughts, feelings, and beliefs underneath your anger and develop tools and plans to better address the hopes, dreams, and injustices that matter most to you.

Have you been told how to deal with your anger with little or no help? Do you find most anger management strategies relatively easy to understand but quite difficult to put into practice? If so, you are not alone. There is a reason for this and it is not because you are not trying hard enough. Anger is a very important and powerful emotion that must be addressed in a deeply emotional way and not just through our heads, knowledge or understanding. This requires the expertise of a therapist who is comfortable and skilled in working with anger.

Anger is an unresolved issue from the past, which eventually ruins most relationships in a person's future. Anger is an emotion that we all experience. However, how one deals with their anger can become a big part of a problem. For some couples, anger can make it nearly impossible to figure out what the problem is or how to fix it. Counseling will decipher the root of the anger, and then how the client may manage those feelings. Oftentimes, sessions will involve the client, and the people who reside with them. Residents are encouraged to participate in counseling sessions for healing. The biggest challenge to living with a resentful or angry person is to keep from becoming one yourself.
