Anger when used appropriately can be a useful tool to give us the aggressive energy we need to take action when we are feeling helpless or victimized. Unfortunately, it is often misused and becomes abusive, creating whole new problems for relationships and careers. I work with clients to first learn to control their emotional expressions, define the underlying feelings creating the hostility, and learn new skills to better utilize their feelings to resolve conflict in more adult ways.

I provide individual psychotherapy for anger management. Anger is normal emotion that everyone experiences. It becomes a problem when one expresses anger inappropriately or one lacks the proficiency to express any emotions but anger. I use Humanistic and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) to help my clients understand their anger, improve their emotional experience, and express their emotions in healthy ways. A healthy emotional life is the cornerstone of living a full and successful life.

I encourage you to express your anger without violence to others while finding how you can harness this emotion to help yourself instead of self-destruction. You have a right to be as angry as you feel and to learn to evaluate the costs of bottling it up or feeling out of cotnrol. The expression of anger and its energy can be used to help you improve your life if you are willing to learn more about it.

While anger is a healthy emotion, it can be unleashed in a very unhealthy manner. Learning tools for effective expression and communication can allow your anger to be heard and understood. Without good communication skills and methods of coping, it often feels as though one is up a creek without a paddle. Good intentions can be hijacked. I will increase your awareness and understanding of the triggers and physical cues that are fueling your anger thus allowing you to make different choices. Together, we will uncover distorted patterns of thinking and reacting, learn new techniques of responding and restore your confidence and personal dignity.

We will explore thought processes, triggers, raise awareness and provide tools for each individual case. Counseling will help create problem solving techniques as well as identify different communication styles (assertive vs. aggressive). Everyone feels angry, the anger is not the problem, rather the forms of expression.

Anger is a normal emotion that we all feel, however if your anger is interfering with you relationships at home or at work it is important to get help. Destructive anger is often a mask for feeling of helplessness, poor self image, and depression that can be traced back to our earliest relationships. I will help you to identify the roots of your anger and take specific steps to handling situations differently. You can learn to talk about your feelings and needs without attacking. You can learn to hear disagreement from your partner or co-workers without feeling defensive. I have worked with anger issues all my professional life and I can help.

If you and your partner are feeling emotionally disconnected, you may find yourself drawn into repeated arguments with each other about seemingly unrelated issues -- such as money, parenting, chores, and sex. Hiding within these disagreements are painful questions: Can I reach you? Do I matter to you? Can I count on you if I need you? Once these deep, hidden questions are calmed, and you both feel safe and loved, you and your partner will find it much easier to resolve other issues.

With a partner, I have developed a new and effective model of anger management that teaches you eight proven tools for anger control. These skill-based tools include; (1) reducing stress in your life, (2) developing empathy, (3)learning to respond instead of react, (4) changing self-talk, (5) communicating assertively, (6) adjusting expectations, (7) learning to forgive, and (8) retreating and thinking things over. These tools are taught to clients both in individual consultation and in anger management classes. They are also taught in online anger management programs I have produced.

Realizing that anger is a secondary emotion, we are able to delve deeper to assess for the primary emotion prior to anger. Many times the root emotions are fear, pain, or hurt. In acknowledging what the root emotion to anger is, it gives us the freedom to see our part in it so that we can make different choices, which comes from a place of power vs. victimhood.

I have worked with many clients in understanding the root to their anger, triggers, and how to manage their anger in different situations. In most cases, I don't think anger is an isolated feeling. I view it as a result of connecting to something deeper. Which could be an unresolved pain, loss, repression of emotions, etc. I have helped clients to understand what is causing them to be angry and to work through to find the words of their experiences. I have also helped clients to learn how to cope with these feelings and to explore alternatives to express their feelings in ways that helps the client to feel good about themselves.
