Anger management counseling can help to identify stressors and learn the steps to stay calm in the face of anger. The goal is to handle tense situations in more constructive and positive ways by reducing the emotional and physical arousal that anger can cause. It will provide the tools to take back your life and resolve the triggers that result in unplanned anger reactions.

More than 20 years ago, I had an "Anger Management" problem. I know what it is like to try to keep it under control to only find myself saying cruel things I wish I didn't say. It destroyed a relationship. However, that inspired me to learn how to deal with my anger in a healthy way. I was highly motivated; it took me less than 12 sessions. If you struggle with your anger, we will come up with real strategies that help you pay attention to what is going on in your body so we can prevent the angry outbursts from happening. You may need somebody who can challenge you and keep you in check while at the same time not judging you. Your next step is to call me to make an appointment.

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.

I use cognitive behavioral techniques to help my clients to identify the thinking that leads to their feelings and behaviors. I then work my my clients collaboratively to examine the evidence for that thinking, then explore different perspectives and change the thoughts into more helpful ones that reduce the feelings of anger, making them more manageable.

Anger - by itself - is not problematic. Evolution endorsed anger to motivate us to protect ourselves. When we are in environments where anger is expressed in violent or abusive ways, then this can grow to feel normal. Instead of having a graduated response to a signal of disrespect, someone can jump directly to an outburst of rage. The heart races, blood pressure rises, and it's hard to think about anything but teaching a lesson to object of anger. If this sounds familiar, I can help. I focus on the thoughts, behaviors and feelings that you have when angry so that you can interrupt the rage reaction and allow yourself the time and space to think about the best way to respond when angry

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.

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.

Anger can be a difficult emotion to manage. Do you have a "short fuse", go from "0-100 in 20 seconds"? This is typical for people who are struggling with anger management. If you are reading this listing it might mean that you've been thinking about the ways that anger has affected your life and your relationships and are hoping that things can get better. They can. Anger management work requires active participation and engagement from clients, but fortunately, excellent, proven, interventions exist for this issue. Not only will you be better able to manage your anger, but you will feel more balanced overall. I have helped many clients with this issue. Call me for more information.

There are many different reasons for why someone might be angry and have difficulty managing it. What is common though, is a lack of understanding by the person expressing the anger and most likely the person receiving it. Together, we can take a nonjudgmental approach to understanding your anger, unpack what it contains and the function it serves. Through this process reactivity is diminished, composure is restored and relationships improve.

Anger has both harmful and healthy/constructive potential depending on how it is dealt with. If you are coming to therapy for anger management, you are probably experiencing anger as interfering with your relationships, your work, or your general wellbeing. Sometimes a propensity towards anger signals that other things may be going on--stress, shame, or other feelings that may be hard to tolerate. In an atmosphere of acceptance and non judgment, we will work with mindfulness to build tolerance for a wider range of feelings, to find ease and to uncover the gems hidden beneath reactive anger.

Anger is a healthy instinctual emotion. But it can be very destructive if it isn't managed and you are consciously aware and mindful of this part of yourself. Often we have learned to bury our instinctual anger response because our culture teaches us it is bad. Anger can be scary and even life-threatening if it's directed at you. This is a universal response. Often, because we bury our anger or haven't learned how to manage it in a healthy way, it comes out in ways that are incredibly harmful. I can help you have a new, healthier experience of your anger so that you can stay connected to people in your life and keep yourself safe from doing harmful things that could ruin your life.
