I approach counseling for anger as replacing ineffective coping strategies with new, adaptive strategies. Best practice treatment for counseling anger suggests a three prong approach: calming self, learning new self-regulation strategies through cognitive behavioral therapy, and learning how to recognize the internal signs that emotions may be building toward anger. Anger is dysfunctional when the resulting behaviors are harmful to self or others, prevents self control, it isolates, or damages self esteem.

Anger is a powerful emotion that can quickly become destructive for you and those around you. The problem is that anger can be a cover for deeper and less comfortable emotions like feeling powerless, frustrated, hurt, or disappointed. I can help you name the emotions that are driving your anger. Together, we can face those emotions and learn how to let go of your anger all together.

We use Albert Ellis' great book "How to Control Your Anger Before it Controls You" to help you learn to identify your triggers for angry outburts, the irrational thinking that accompanies them, and how to challenge that thinking to help you end up somewhere besides anger - somewhere healthy. It ain't easy, but everyone has their go-to emotion, and you can learn how to turn your anger into something more manageable.

Anger issues can become overwhelming to both you and those who experience it with you. Simply put, anger can simply be a struggle to allow the grief and anxiety of life to run it's course through the redeeming work of God. This is why, although it can seem too much to control, it's not too much for God. The most helpful way I've found in making progress with anger issues is moving clients to a place of not only being open and honest about the struggle, but also beginning to accept it for what it is and finding comfort and control in that place of acceptance. It's then through a heart of confession and reorientation to what is so angering, that true and fruitful healing can begin to occur.

Anger can be appropriate. It can also be misdirected. Sometimes it grows and hangs on in a way that prevents us from seeing the good in our lives. I will listen carefully to what you say. Then I will paraphrase and summarize so that you can hear more clearly what you are thinking. We may examine the pattern of anger that you experience. We may reflect on thoughts that lead to your anger and how you might change them. I will help you identify your feelings behind the anger. Once you feel safer, you may be able to tell me about past experiences that trigger you now. If you are comfortable, we may use mindfulness techniques to help you move through the trauma and have a more peaceful life.

The human brain is a brilliant organ that keeps us safe by connecting and comparing the pain of the past to the present moment, on conscious and unconscious levels. For some of us, especially for those who have been emotionally wounded earlier in life, this tendency towards a primitive "fight" response is in actuality highly disruptive and even destructive. I help clients to revisit and process their initial wounds in a safe environment and teach them that they are capable of responding to emotional triggers in a more constructive way. Actual body monitoring and "brain work' is done that assist clients in moving from a primitive reactive response to a more safe intentional response.

Anger is one of the many emotions we feel. During therapy you will gain a better understanding of passive and aggressive anger; along with your personal story related to your anger. Therapy will provide a safe environment to talk about your triggers and learn communication skills, problem solving strategies, and relaxation techniques to begin building an assertive future.

I utilize Cognitive-Behavior, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, relaxation & Mindfulness, social skills and problem solving skills to help clients identify and understand misinformed patterns of thinking. I work with clients using written assignments conducting a behavioral chain analysis targeting problematic situations that elicit angry emotions. I help clients perform weekly journal cards to track weekly anger arousals with the purpose of identifying deeper underlying emotions distinct from anger. When these assignments are done clients understand that their issues are not so much about anger but about fear of success or failure, fear of losing or not getting something important to them.

For most of us anger comes from hurt, fear, or stress. Anger is a normal emotion but for many it can become extreme or begin deteriorating relationships, job performance, and even health. I can help you identify an awareness of where the anger comes from, recognize the angry thoughts and behaviors intruding on your life, and help you gain the skills to replace and handle anger with constructive and healthy alternatives. I utilize several activities in and out of session to move you towards positive anger management.
