All too often anger moves us to do acts we would almost never do. The basis of anger has been found to be fear. Fear of being out of control, fear of not knowing what to do, fear of an unwanted past coming back. Working with individuals, couples, and families, I help them find the behavioral resources to deal with the fear and thereby reduce the anger. The reduction of the anger through processes learned in our therapy, gives the client the power to control reactions to events. That power is the means to manage any anger, present and in the future.

Anger is a healthy and necessary human emotion; however, if it gets out of control, it can create difficulties at work, in personal relationships and ultimately interfere with life enjoyment. There is likely a reason, or many reasons, you are feeling so angry. I can assist you with exploring and understanding your anger better and learning strategies that will help you to feel calmer, communicate better and enjoy more satisfying work and personal relationships.

Anger can sometimes help you be assertive in important situations. However, if you consistently express your anger in ways that negatively affect your relationships and self-esteem, you may have an anger management issue. In therapy, clients learn about the underlying reasons for their anger and ways to self-soothe and validate their own experience. With more self-awareness, clients are able to express their feelings with calm, clarity, and greater sensitivity to others. We can work together to feel less on edge, so you are more approachable and experience greater satisfaction in relationships.

Anger issues are often the sign that an individual has experienced a significant trauma or sense of loss in their life. Often times individuals, especially men, are deemed in need of anger management without much exploration into the underlying causes that may lead an individual to act out of a sense of fear, abandonment, or injustice. If you are an individual experiencing problematic anger in your life, talking to a trauma-informed therapist can help educate and empower a person to find more effective ways to deal with underlying issues that lead to anger.
