It is absolutely normal for people to get angry. It is only a problem if you are not able to control it and it overtakes you and has a negative effect or hurts the people around you. When the negative consequences are more frequent and you want to do something about it, then half of the battle is already won. Anger is an external emotion. I will guide you to peel the layers and look at where these things are stemming from. You will work on the root cause of the emotions and learn skills and tools that will help you control your emotions. You will work on ways to boost your confidence and self-esteem, learn how to build healthier and lasting relationships and express your emotions confidently

ANGER....something that we all have negative (if not traumatic) experience with. We are taught from a young age that it is no o.k. to feel or express anger. Unfortunately, simply because we ignore or suppress does not mean that it disappears. If left unacknowledged, it remains in our minds, hearts, and bodies. Further, the inappropriate expression of (or LACK of healthy expression) can cause severe damage to our most cherished relationships. Therapy is the ideal place for articulating, as well as learning how to effectively express, our anger. Remember, anger is only an internal alarm system telling us that something needs attention. It's what we do with it that matters.

Your anger is an attempt at reclaiming power and control. The problem is that when others feel victimized in some way by your angry outbursts, they naturally become defensive and perhaps angry as well. I can help you find more effective ways of expressing yourself and getting your needs met. Underneath the angry feelings are the vulnerable feelings of fear or hurt. Once these are acknowledged and cared for, either by yourself or another, there is movement towards ease and contentment. I can help you slow down the powerful reactions, and get to the core so that you find your real needs and your abilities to connect healthfully with others.

Anger is an emotion that is generally not allowed in our culture. It is something that we tend to either avoid or overuse. The first step is awareness and taking ownership of what feelings belong to you and why. The second step is to find healthy ways to release the anger. And thirdly, therapy can help you express your feelings in a healthy format so that you can take better care of yourself and be the person you truly are.

Anger in itself is not a bad thing. It is a feeling and feelings are there for a reason. You can manage your frustrations without losing control of yourself. In my work with you, you will learn your personal signs and symptoms of anger and catch yourself before you reach that point of no return. "My anger outbursts and destructive behavior seem to come from nowhere!" This is not true. You can learn the root cause, slow it down and have control over your life again. You will learn how to be assertive instead of being aggressive.

Anger is an unpopular emotion. Most of us dislike feeling it or being in its presence. It is particularly unpleasant because, with anger, there may be a loss of control. In spite of the bad PR surrounding anger, it can be an important signal to tell us something's not right. I help people become more conscious of their thoughts, feelings, and blind spots around anger so they feel a greater sense of control over it (rather than vice-versa). I also assist people on alternative ways to communicate so they can express what is really bothering them and increase the likelihood of being heard and understood

Anger is one feeling that seems to come up readily when we are hurt, feel misunderstood, feel hopeless, or wronged. Anger in itself is not a bad thing. It is an emotion like all others, but how we find resources, who we turn to, having someone to talk to, and then deciding what to do, can be helpful. Anger can be a useful tool if we can understand what has triggered us and what to do about it in ways that are not self destructive. I offer a safe place to explore all the feelings surrounding anger so that it starts to feel like something you have a choice in expressing the way you want to.

Do you have trouble naming your triggers? When you become angry, is it difficult for you to take a step back and think before you react? I have found that problems arise when a person reacts immediately when angry instead of taking a moment to think about the possible consequences of their reactions. I work to help clients identify the things that make them angry, notice when their anger begins to form, and slow down their reactionary processes once the anger hits.

Talk therapy releases some of the tension of anger. Anger includes feelings of irritability, frustration, road rage and violence. Depth therapy also helps you gain insight to the deeper roots of anger that may have accumulated over many years. We look at triggers and how to slow down your reactions via mindfulness, breathing and self-awareness. Learning how to deescalate anger improves communication with loved ones, friends, children and coworkers.

Clients often identify "anger" as a primary concern on counseling intake forms. So many of us struggle with anger because it occurs in response to so many life experiences and we are rarely taught how to appropriately communicate about it. Anger, and the way we express it, often leaves us with negative consequences that impact our lives at home and at work. The reality about anger is that it is often a secondary emotion...a reaction to hurt and pain. Cognitive therapy can help identify what thoughts and events trigger our anger. Once we can identify the triggers we can learn to be more conscious and active in choosing how we will respond to them.

Other people can be really thoughtless, rude, & annoying. Sometimes it feels like they deserve our anger. Yet anger comes with a price. We run the risk of losing our relationships with our family & coworkers. We feel embarrassed & ashamed. We wished we could do better, & are angry with ourselves. I use a therapeutic technique that has been shown in research to be the most effective in the treatment of anger problems, cognitive behavioral therapy. I combine this powerful technique with EMDR, Somatic Experiencing to get at the root of your anger problem and help you making meaningful and lasting change. You can feel better. You just need to call. Call 415-820-1487 for a free phone consult.

Do you find it difficult to distinguish between experiencing the emotion of anger and the behavior you exhibit when angry? While "anger-management" techniques are somewhat helpful, the results are often not sustained. Appropriate attention to the underlying issues of depression and anxiety is critical in effectively addressing anger-related difficulties. A combination of Cognitive-Behavioral and Psychodynamic therapies focused on these issues can greatly help you to learn with and accept your "emotion" of anger without needing or being triggered into "behaving" in an angry and destructive manner. If you have trouble controlling your anger and want help, feel free to contact me.
