Many people struggle with controlling anger, both men and women. I have found anger is closely related to not feeling in control of life's stresses. I initially assess a person's level of anger, and any possible mood related issues which cause or exacerbate the issue. I assign homework, and also help educate the client on the anger cycle. I teach the client how to manage their anger better, so that it improves relationships, including at the workplace, with the family and in their marriage.

I would like to come alongside you, the client, as you process your anger. I consider anger to be a second-tier emotion, usually a defensive "fight" reaction to a perceived threat. I will help you find ways to control these reactions while finding more healthy and effective ways of expressing wants and needs. One of my highest priorities is providing an environment where it is safe for you to accomplish this.

I assist clients in identifying the roots of their anger. This may mean processing situations from the past that were hurtful or upsetting. It may also mean learning how to deal with hurt, disappointment, frustration, or anxiety in new ways rather than resorting to anger. Once we have discussed new coping skills, we will practice them together in session.
