We all feel angry from time to time. It is a natural human emotion. But expressing anger in a way that hurts other people can damage relationships and careers, cause financial and legal problems, and even damage our health. Anger management can be learned. You must learn to identify the triggers, thoughts and feelings that lead to the inappropriate expression of anger. You must learn new, more effective coping responses for when you get angry. Assertive communication patterns will help you get your needs met while respecting the needs of others. Learning effective anger management techniques will help you de-escalate volatile situations, lower your stress, and improve your relationships!

My anger management treatment is a combination of cognitive therapy, relaxation techniques and affect management techniques designed to help you identify feelings underlying the anger and ways to better address the true desire and function of the emotion. Then you will also acquire more assertive communication skills to more effectively convey the request which the anger inspires from the deeper emotional level. In addition, mindfulness meditation skills and the deconstruction of judgments which are the basis of anger will be discussed.
