Anger management isn't meant to rid you of anger, or "fix" your feelings. People who tell you that you feel "too much" or "shouldn't" feel a certain way may be uncomfortable with how you relay emotion, but that doesn't mean you need "fixing." I can help you learn how to work with, not against, your emotions -- whether anger or another strong sensation. The key is practicing forms of expression that support your highest interests rather than sabotaging yourself, your career, or personal relationships for the short-lived relief of either emotional outbursts or self-numbing. Instead, I can teach you to tap into the wisest parts of yourself, so that emotions and behavior synch up healthily.

When a client comes in with an anger problem the first step I would take as a Counselor in Mission Viejo, CA is to ask questions to understand what triggers the anger. Once I understand the triggers I will work with by teaching you relaxation techniques that will help calm you down, coping skills which are tools to offset or overcome your anger, and cognitive behavior therapy which will help you understand the thoughts and feelings that influence your behaviors.

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.

Anger is a normal emotion. What often needs to be controlled is how we respond to our angry feelings. Our therapy work will include practical techniques of how to know when your anger is building and what triggers it in the first place. We will also explore if there's other overwhelming emotions that trigger your anger (sadness, anxiety, and embarrassment).

Most people affected by problem anger spend their time trying to control it and make promises to themselves and others about not getting angry again. Instead of struggling to control anger, there is a way to learn how to accept and observe angry feelings without having to act out in anger. Problem anger is usually a message that something needs to be changed or be released. I use the concepts of Acceptance Commitment Therapy and Narrative Therapy to help clients let go of anger and move towards their preferred way of acting.

Activating the fight-flight system is the single most challenging factor in managing anger, stress, & interpersonal conflict. When anger stems from childhood trauma, EMDR may be useful. When it originates from an over-active limbic system (e.g, in ADD), neurofeedback and/or medication may be indicated. Regardless of the source, some crucial elements are: learning an effective relaxation/self-soothing method, knowing how to check one's pulse so that time-out can be taken to use the self-soothing tools to calm down when elevating (rather than after full escalation), and employing a cardio exercise program. A good Mindfulness practice can be beneficial as well for those who are so inclined.

Anger is not wrong. How we hurt others or ourselves in anger is damaging. I work with clients to release their anger and frustration in healthy ways prior to interacting with anyone. We then work on how to release tension and understand their feelings so that when they discuss challenges they do not re-ignite and exacerbate the sitaution. We explore the cycle of anger and violence and create saftey measures so this cycle is altered. Self-responsibility is critical. We work on body relaxation, visualization, and breath work to help the client understand their body and utilize it more effectively.

Most of us have some relationship to anger. In a world that is capable of sudden cruelty and profound injustice, anger can be a powerful ally, helping us to take action that leads to real change. But anger can also try to take over our lives by tricking us into doing things we would rather not do, or getting ourselves into trouble. When anger arrives, we will face it together. Might we flip the script? Is it possible to take control of the relationship with anger, to interrogate it and unmask its motivations, its support, and its insidious methods of taking over?

Anger is a healthy expression of emotion. When anger and rage become the dominating emotion that rules our actions, a potentially serious problem exists. When this occurs we feel out of control, even frightened by the intensity of feeling. Scared by life altering actions and repercussions. We become lost and confused. We know this is not me but yet it is. This mystery is solvable. Sometimes when negative experiences happen we hide and bury them, We do this so well we forget why the anger is there. Over the years these experiences multiply, fester and grow. A time bomb waiting to be triggered. We can help you unearth the issues, defuse and help you to dismantle the bomb. Call! We can help.
