I have found that formal anger management classes provide excellent tools, but that most of those tools go out the window when emotionally provoking events occur. I help people work out the underlying feelings that trigger anger that has been out of control. But I also help people use their anger effectively. Many persons are angry and are not aware of it and they could effectively utilize their anger towards constructive ends. Anger is merely a signal that something is wrong, etc. Thus, the anger is not the problem, it is what you do with it. I will help you "manage" your signals of anger in more effective ways through each phase of the process.

Anger does not define you. I help my client bring their anger under control, but I never forget that they are a PERSON FIRST. I treat each of my client with respect and dignity. I believe only when people feel truly cared for that they can start to transcend the negative patterns they are stuck in. Finding the right person to help you is a lot to do with chemistry. Please call me at (949) 288-3123 if you have any questions at all. I want your therapy journey to be as successful as possible.

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.

Through my numerous years of experience with working clients with anger issues, the core element is hurt and and disappointment. Some people have difficulty saying that they are hurt and instead lash oout or react in unhealthy behaviors. I have worked with clients that have either damaged their relationships and or hurt themselves in the process. Training and implementing instruction to clients in order to manage anger through court appointed measures or simply clients who desire a change in thought and behavior can be achieved simply by coaching with cognitive behavioral therapy.

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.

All of us experience anger from time to time. It is a normal, commonly experienced emotion. However, anger can be incredibly destructive if we do not know how to control it. Frequent or misplaced anger can hurt our reputation, destroy our relationships, limit our opportunities, and damage our physical health. Acknowledging that anger has become an issue is the first step. Getting help is the second. I have worked with individuals and groups helping them to first identify, acknowledge, and then manage their anger for many years. I will help you gain the emotional skills and tools needed to control and manage your anger and help you to live a more harmonious life. Please feel free to call.

Anger is a feeling that we all have experienced. However, when we have a difficult time controlling angry outbursts or when we become physically or emotionally abusive, we need to get help. Uncontrolled anger can push the people we love away, and ultimately lead to painful feelings of guilt and/or shame. Let us look at what has happened in your early relationships, that has contributed to your inability to control your anger and find other, more healthy ways for you to manage.

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.

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.
