Anger is a useful emotion that can overpower fear and lead towards taking charge of a situation, but there is a point where you can lose control over the anger and it begins to control you. When anger becomes persistent, over-reactive, violent, or difficult to control, its time to take a closer look at your anger and where it comes from. Once we identify the source of the anger and what maintains its strength, we can channel that energy into more positive pursuits and learn to manage the outbursts that harm our relationships and ourselves.

Anger is often a secondary emotion. Treating anger involves helping the client with Self-Esteem, Shame, Guilt, Anxiety and Trauma issues that underlie and create the anger. It can also arise from irrational demands or expectations on others. Clients are taught tools to manage their own expectations and demands so they can live an undisturbed life. My approach is hands on, pen and paper, and easily learnable. Clients will be able to use and benefit from what they learn long after therapy ends.

Through anger management you can have the ability to regain control of your mind so that the actions and words that you put out there are a result of who you truly are, and not an automatic reaction to things the world will throw at you. The process comes through knowing yourself so that you can recognize when you are angry, how angry you are, and what to do about it so that you do not hurt or frighten anyone. Then, you can explore what makes you angry and why, which can lead to a great deal of freedom.

Anger does not have to be logical or valid, but it is the response to what you are feeling. Anger often reveals itself as the feelings behind panic, hurt, sadness, loneliness and more. Unfortunately, our loved ones and friends are taken back and confused when this anger presents itself. I work with individuals to help them identify their triggers to anger and work to understand those triggers and help process them in a safe environment.
