Anger can ruin relationships, compromise your health, interfere with life goals such as work and school, and ultimately strip the joy out of life. Anger doesn't have to run your life though!

I offer a safe, supportive environment where you can freely express yourself, so that we may uncover underlying beliefs and lifestyle practices contributing to your overwhelming feelings and angry outbursts.

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.

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 mask loneliness, sadness, and fear, but become violent and affect relationships bitterly. Depression is anger turned inward affecting every part of one's life. Often anger arises when a current situation is similar to others in a client's past. A thorough history is explored revealing hurtful events, learned angry behavior, attitudes, and limitations (often children are silenced). New descriptive language is developed along with coping skills, emotional regulation, communication skills, and a greater sense of an expressive and peaceful adult self.

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.
