A lack of ability to manage one’s anger can have devastating effects on a person’s life, to include intimate relationships, parenting, work, and friendships. Clients often present frustrated with themselves for this inability, but feeling unable to change what feels to them like an automatic response and a normal response to stress and annoyances. At Lepage Associates we help people recognize managing anger is a skill, and like all other skills it can be leaned with guidance and hard work. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) has been the preferred method of treatment for anger for decades. Cognitively, clients are taught to become more aware of when and how their anger develops by identifying

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.

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.
