Anger management is both a practical matter and a profound inner journey. We begin by learning to control angry outbursts--harsh words, violence and reactivity that causes us to act in ways that are harmful to others. We learn to identify triggers, to mindfully observe reactions, to reduce stress and to develop alternative behaviors. Then we delve deeper into the roots of anger: often this take us back to unhealed childhood traumas.

Three Anger Questions: 1. Has anyone suggested you have anger issues? 2. Do you get angry several times a year? 3. Has anger caused problems in your life? If you answered ‘Yes’ to even one of these questions, then you may have anger issues. Anger can also be embarrassing and difficult to admit. Seeking help can be even more challenging. The good news is that working with an experienced anger management counselor on these issues can help. When anger is reduced, most other areas in our lives improve. The process of working on anger takes courage, but the rewards are great for you and the people around you. Call or email and let’s get started.

Anger is a curious feeling and most often it covers more profound and primary feeling of shame, loneliness and abandonment. It may also rear it's head when one feels unimportant, discounted or unworthy. Rather than attempt to manage the anger, I will work with you to find the underlying meaning driving the anger and by doing so the anger will be seen as a self-protective mechanism and no longer necessary.

Anger is the fight emotion. When other people cross the line with us we get mad and we need to let them know it's not okay. Letting someone else know that you're angry in a safe way rather than violent way is very important and a key to all healthy relationships. If you have a problem with anger, I can help you to work through the feelings and learn to set boundaries with other people in a safe way that doesn't hurt them or you.

I believe that we need to express our anger, to get it out of our bodies or it might adversely effect our physical health. I use a number of different tools, such as a baseball bat and pillows or bean bags to throw, to help clients to find constructive expressions of their angry feelings. There is always safety guidelines. Clients are initially often shy about using the bat or the bean bags but most always report great release and relieve when done. I also encourage journal writing about the unexpressed words and when appropriate letter writing to express the so far unsaid, even if it is from years ago.

Knowledge is power! Did you know that once the alarm center of your brain gets activated (hijacked) it takes approximately 18 min. to calm down and move out of fight-or flight mode and back into a more rational, logical space. This alarm center is formally known as the amygdala, and is a tiny structure in your brain responsible for keeping you safe. For some, their alarm centers are hyper vigilant, perhaps from early or recent trauma, lack of secure attachments, or genetic factors that predispose them to being triggered more easily than others. Anger management is not only about learning tools to better regulate your emotions, but also learning what underlies frequent explosive outbursts.
