If any of the above resonate with you, you may benefit from anger management counseling. With counseling, you will learn how to use CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) to slow down and modify your thoughts so that you can calm impulses, begin to think in a clear-headed manner, and act appropriately.

This is an area that is vital to understand and know how to manage in order to have a healthy, compatible relationship. Not knowing how to reduce anger and handle it can sabotage a couple’s ability to communicate and get along on many levels. Anger unchecked, can destroy relationships and sometimes lead to violence. Over the years I have developed many techniques to help people reduce their anger, and have taught them how to communicate with their partner effectively.

If you or your child have difficulties with anger, you know how devastating it can be to relationships, friendships, work and school life. Most people with anger issues, are otherwise good people, who are embarrassed and ashamed of the way they erupt! Why do nice people end up with anger problems? Often temper issues are related to other difficulties like impulse control issues stemming from ADHD, low self-esteem, poor modeling in their own families, childhood trauma, depression, or anxiety. I believe in a comprehensive approach which aims to change anger responses, as well as identify and address the underlying issues.

Anger is an expression of frustration. When we are frustrated and feel out of control, we react with anger. Anger as an emotion is not necessarily unhealthy. To bottle up anger can only lead to somatic illnesses such as ulcers and high blood pressure. Therefore, it can be healthy and cathartic to express pent-up anger and frustration. However, everything depends on how anger is expressed. Anger can be expressed in a carthartic, therapuetic manner or it can be expressed destructively. If you routinely express anger destructively, you probably learned this behavior in your family growing up. I can help you unlearn this habit through increased self-awareness and emotional control.

I can help you learn how to manage your anger. Often anger is covering deeper feelings such as heartbreak, helplessness and loneliness. I can teach you a three-step anger process that can help you take personal responsibility for your angry feelings and learn what feelings you may be avoiding with your anger and, how you might be using anger to try to control others. Also how to know if you are really angry at yourself for maybe not setting a healthy boundary with someone and instead project your anger onto others.

At times, we all express anger – it is a normal human emotion. It’s when we are constantly feeling angry, blowing up at loved ones or saying hurtful things, where we should proactively learn what is at the route of our anger. It is common for us to try “to get over something” when we are not “over it”, leaving things unsettled right below the surface. Many times what is beneath that anger is sadness, fear, and hurt. I help people identify and learn what is the source of their anger and how to genuinely express themselves from the heart. If you have been engaging in physically abusive/aggressive behavior, please seek help from a Family Violence Intervention Program.

"Sticks and stones will break my bones, but your words will break my heart." Many people with anger issues know the damage that can be done to a relationship with even one outburst. Mastering anger is necessary to having the affection and trust of the people we care about. It has been accurately referred to as 'restraint of pen and tongue' in some literature. While it may seem like an effort one undertakes for others, the primary benefits are to the person who handles their anger. If you are reading this, and the thought "I wouldn't get angry if so-and-so didn't do such-and-such" consider yourself a primary candidate for this work. Discovering how to escape from anger will set you free.

At times anger can be a helpful emotion acting as a catalyst to improve or change a negative situation. However, if anger becomes unmanageable or explosive it can lead to relationship, family or employment problems. Depression, anger and anxiety are connected and may occur together. My approach: I utilize mindfulness skills that can help you manage unmet expectations, or daily hassles that may trigger anger. I will help you observe and let go of anger, rather than act on it. I will also work with you to alter thinking patterns that may magnify anger. Lastly, it is helpful to understand underlying factors that contribute to anger prone behavior
