When things don't go your way, do you uncontrollably lash out with anger? When anger is unchecked, it can cause problems in relationships, at work, and affect your health negatively. Counseling can help you understand your anger and teach you how to channel it in a healthy way. You can learn new ways of responding to difficult situations and people that does not harm yourself, your relationships, or others. Give me a call to schedule an initial consultation.

Clients from various backgrounds take many different approaches to think about, feel and express anger. However, when anger negatively impacts one’s relationships, it is important to explore what is contributing to an unhealthy experience of anger. In my collaboration with clients, we venture out to explore the conscious and unconscious factors that may need to be brought to light, in the context of perhaps other biopsychosocial (biological, psychological or social) factors that may need attention. Clients who learn to understand, better identify and manage their impulses, cultivate insight and explore opportunities to practice developing skills to have an improved sense of self-mastery.

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

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

My approach to anger management is helping my client see what the underlying feelings, thoughts, and beliefs are that are driving them to act out there feelings through anger, and learn how to drop beneath the anger to the fear and/or pain that always underlies anger. Through doing this we can learn to express our vulnerability and share our feelings in a safe and healthy manner.

Anger can be incredibly difficult to manage - especially if you are not ready to significantly redefine yourself. Beyond strategies for avoiding anger inducing circumstances, and reducing the intensity, frequency and duration of our angry feelings, we must come to terms with our own ego, or sense of self. That part of us that feels wounded, harmed, and/or threatened and must be defended. If you are genuinely ready to redirect that anger energy, face yourself in the mirror, and manage that part of yourself that is causing you and those you love to suffer, let's get to work.
