If you or a loved one has an anger problem, the first thing that I want to say is, "There is a reason for it!" Understanding the anger, it's function, what prompts it, how to manage it's expression and it's intensity until it is resolved, and how to resolve are the tasks of therapy. I have worked in the area of anger & stress management for years with men & women on probation and with many who came to me with an additional drug and/or alcohol problem. I am happy to talk with you about your unique concerns.

It is normal to have and feel anger periodically, and it is even an innate part of being human. However, some of us cannot help but express our anger in unhealthy, even damaging ways. I will help you learn to create healthy ways to release your anger and work through it so that it doesn't affect your partner, family and friends. What I will teach you are appropriate ways to catch and release the anger brewing insde of you before it spills over and out in a harmful barage of words or violence.

Angry words are powerful. Once spoken cannot be taken back. Arguments made in anger is a war in which everyone loses. No minds are changed and relationships are injured and may be lost. A battle to convince another that you are right is futile and communication will not develop because neither is able to hear what the other is trying to say. Choose today to start managing your anger and to get to what's causing the anger to build up.

Anger often stems from deep hurt. I can help you discover the origin of your anger, and in doing so can help you to work on healing the wounds that continue to hurt you and cause you to lash out at others. I can help you learn new coping strategies and healthy outlets for those times when anger seems to control you, and more effective ways to relate to those around you.

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.

Often times anger management issues come from feeling like we are not being heard or understood. In the majority of anger management cases I have ever worked with, the anger stemmed from people being unable to communicate needs, frustration, fear, & disappointment in a healthy way. Sometimes anger problems are the result of a history of being hurt by others. In these cases people struggling with anger management become sensitive to any signs that someone might hurt them again, and they develop a quicker, stronger fight/flight response. It is my job to help anger management clients to recognize anger as it is building, create ways to relax and stay calm, & to communicate their needs/emotions.

Anger is an important emotion, though it often gets a “bad rap” being associated with violence and emotional injury. There is mobilizing empowering energy in anger. It becomes a problem only when it becomes stuck, pent up, and then periodically erupts like a volcano. I assist clients in taking responsibility for the understanding and care of their underlying emotions. Mindfulness is a powerful yet gentle way of developing capacity for productive emotional expression. This kind compassionate practice ultimately leads to greater congruence and authenticity in one’s sense of self.

Rightful anger has an important place in life where and when it must be expressed. However, there are many forms of anger that are internally destructive and can become externally dangerous to ourselves and others. Some forms of anger come from long term contentious relationships and occurrences which can never go away or decrease in pain and agitation. Some forms of anger are explosive on the moment and other anger comes as a gradual escalating irritation that then reaches its limits. Counseling serves to teach skills of anger management and can defuse and even prevent out of control anger from erupting. Counseling is known to be very effective for addressing and safely controlling anger.

Everyone feels angry from time to time. It is a natural and healthy emotion that can benefit us in many ways. However, anger is a problem in our lives when it is felt during inappropriate situations, or if we express it in ways that are counterproductive to our well-being. Learn what your anger stems from as well as new tools to help you develop healthy forms of expression. Stop the cycle that causes a downward spiral.

Anger is never just anger at face value. Oftentimes it is a "secondary emotion"--the visible tip of the iceberg. It is common for our fears, frustration, hurt, vulnerability, and sadness to manifest as anger. There are many useful tools and insight-oriented interventions that can help manage our distress, improve communication and relationship functioning, and positively impact how we view and care for ourselves. You deserve to be heard and validated in ways that are respectful and productive. I can help you achieve more meaningful communication as we work toward greater understanding of your feelings and needs.

I teach concrete skills for how to manage difficult feelings like anger. We all get angry sometimes, and often that anger has a purpose and exists to tell us something. Anger is not inherently a bad or negative emotion, contrary to what we often think. The trick is to not let the anger run away with us or control us. We can work together to help you learn and practice new tools for coping with very strong feelings like anger.

Every person who has struggled with anger knows that it is a feeling that can be very difficult to control even when you want to. I can help you learn to respond to anger triggers and cues more effectively, and to change how you respond to your angry feelings. The biggest damage occurs when we act on the angry feelings, and I will help you learn to identify and reduce reactivity to those external or internal anger triggers. We all have angry feelings; it's what we do in response to those feelings that contribute to a life of free of needless suffering and emotional injuries.
