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.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

Are you at risk of losing your job or your partner because of your anger? Is your family afraid of you because you seem out of control? Has your anger led to violence or arrests? Anger is a valid emotion that has a bad reputation because of the way it can be expressed. Learn to understand your own anger as well as coping skills that can help you feel more in control. And get to root of your anger. Anger is a complicated emotion that is often protective of a more vulnerable emotion or side of yourself, i.e., fear or sadness. As you learn the skills of self support, you can get your needs met while feeling more in control of yourself and the way you interact with your world as well.

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 a first feeling, something always precedes it. After hearing what makes you angry, we search to find out what the first feeling might have been. Often it is fear or hurt. When we know the source it is much easier to address the rage/frustration. I teach my clients how to express strong feelings without blowing up. There is hope for you.
