Verna Nelson, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Scotts Valley, CA

Do you regularly find yourself frustrated and angry at the people you want to be closest to and that you love the most? Do you strive to stay calm and balanced, but then find yourself going off on people at home or at work? I work with people to recognize how anger comes from unenforceable rules you create for how others, or you yourself, "should" behave. Unrealistic rules create expectations that you waste your life & energy trying to enforce in yourself and others. We will work together to understand the rules you have made that are realistic and helpful, and to give you the choice to change the rules that are creating unnecessary grief for you and the people who want to be close to you.

ANGER....something that we all have negative (if not traumatic) experience with. We are taught from a young age that it is no o.k. to feel or express anger. Unfortunately, simply because we ignore or suppress does not mean that it disappears. If left unacknowledged, it remains in our minds, hearts, and bodies. Further, the inappropriate expression of (or LACK of healthy expression) can cause severe damage to our most cherished relationships. Therapy is the ideal place for articulating, as well as learning how to effectively express, our anger. Remember, anger is only an internal alarm system telling us that something needs attention. It's what we do with it that matters.

Your anger is an attempt at reclaiming power and control. The problem is that when others feel victimized in some way by your angry outbursts, they naturally become defensive and perhaps angry as well. I can help you find more effective ways of expressing yourself and getting your needs met. Underneath the angry feelings are the vulnerable feelings of fear or hurt. Once these are acknowledged and cared for, either by yourself or another, there is movement towards ease and contentment. I can help you slow down the powerful reactions, and get to the core so that you find your real needs and your abilities to connect healthfully with others.

Anger is one of the most common feelings and at the same time one of the most denied and repressed. How many of us can say that we were ever taught how to "do anger" in a safe and respectful way. Most of us saw as children various forms of dysfunctional expressions of anger: violent, abusive, misdirected, or none at all. In therapy with me you will be able to explore the lessons of anger you learned as a child, so you can choose new ways of expressing this common emotion... Ways of expressing anger that are not destructive to you, your family, your friends, or your work.

Anger is normal and healthy and can actually help you, yet for most it’s about the mis-management and mis-understanding of anger that causes problems; so anger is not really the problem, it’s not fully understanding what it’s about and what can be done differently. Anger is generally about unresolved hurt and pain, expectations and needs not getting met, and having non-acceptance to certain parts of reality. Anger can be complicated as it can also entail unresolved grief, stress, depression, and anxiety. The hope is that you can gain clarity and discover healthier ways of coping and responding to what is causing the anger.

Anger is an emotion that is generally not allowed in our culture. It is something that we tend to either avoid or overuse. The first step is awareness and taking ownership of what feelings belong to you and why. The second step is to find healthy ways to release the anger. And thirdly, therapy can help you express your feelings in a healthy format so that you can take better care of yourself and be the person you truly are.

Anger that is out of control can hurt our relationships and work lives. With self-awareness, you can learn to be in control of your anger - not the other way around. I can teach you to become aware of your anger, including bodily sensations, thoughts, and feelings. We'll identify triggers and help you create some space between the trigger and your reaction to it. Through awareness, you can make a choice about how to respond. Anger is often a result of stress, so we'll also work on reducing and managing your stress. Through our anger management work, you'll have better relationships, less conflict, and a greater sense of calm.
