Most commonly, I work with men who need help with anger. All of us can lose our cool and hurt other people, but some of us are more likely to express ourselves through anger. There are many reasons why someone might have this issue. The key to learning to redirect ourselves at the critical moment is to be aware of our felt sense at the time. Most people are able to detect, when they train themselves to do so, a charge of emotion in the body. At such times, one must absent the situation before he says and or does something regrettable. It is helpful to learn to be mindful of our felt senses so we can drain the stress through special techniques and also avoid losing control.

Are you a man struggling with anger? Does your temper cause you to say or do hurtful things? Are you frustrated that you cannot control your anger? Do you have problems with relationships because of your anger? Has explosive anger sabotaged your job or career? Have you tried drugs or alcohol to control your anger, rage, or aggression? Has your anger caused a breakup or divorce in your life?   The goal of anger management is to reduce both your emotional feelings and the physiological arousal that anger causes. You can't get rid of, or avoid, the things or people that enrage you, but you can learn to control your reactions and find better ways to deal with this emotion.

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!

Anger is a legitimate emotion, signifying injustice in some area of our lives. As with all emotions, anger can be effective or it can be ineffective. Often, ineffective anger is a cultural or gender issue; men frequently use anger to appear powerful when they might be afraid or in pain. Women frequently stuff anger because they have been taught that "nice girls don't get angry." I can help you understand your anger, and process it effectively so that any consequences of your anger are positive rather than negative.

Anger has been called a “secondary emotion”. This is because sometimes, though not always, it masks other deeper and more vulnerable emotions such as sadness and fear. Excessive anger is often the result of unresolved hurt and trauma that has not been fully processed and healed. Another source can be ineffective communication skills that leave one frustrated in relationships. Anger can also be the result of untreated depression, anxiety, or bipolar disorder. My clients receive a comprehensive evaluation considering all possible sources of the anger, to treat it at its source, as well as learn techniques and behavior modification to deal with it constructively when it arises.

Anger can harm our relationships, career, academics and even our sense of self. Anger is usually a symptom of deeper issues within ourselves or our struggles to cope with others' issues. Underneath of anger is often pain, fear, shame and loneliness. Learning coping skills for anger management is helpful. However, addressing its' origins and the related boundary issues leads to an overall reduction in negative feelings, rather than just learning to tolerate them. I can help you discover the source of unproductive anger and guide you in the process of resolving it, so that anger becomes a useful tool for alerting you of trouble, rather than causing more of it.
