Are you angry all the time, suffering with constant dissatisfaction and irritability? For some people, everything seems fine and under control until a wire gets tripped causing you to explode or fall apart. Maybe this looks like a shout, a push, or a punch, a rant or escalating up to tornado-like destruction. Or perhaps your anger goes inward: a clenched jaw, stomach-aches, depression, or high blood pressure. Often these feelings and incidents are accompanied by feelings of shame and low self-esteem. Anger is a normal and even necessary response to threats to our emotional and physical well-being. Were it not for this emotion, our species would be extinct, so my job is not to eliminat....

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.

Anger is a normal emotion and can be managed by learning coping mechanisms and mindfulness strategies. You may also want to understand what is underneath those unpleasant feelings. We will work together to increase insight, decrease stress and improve communication skills. Relationships can trigger some of our deepest hurts and family of origin issues. Together we can untangle these feelings, so you can free yourself from your negative thoughts.

Anger is a normal human emotion that warns us that something is being done to us that is threatening, unjust, or gets in the way of getting our needs met. Of course, we can become angry at ourselves for a variety of reasons. Anger by nature is not a “problem” nor does it always require “anger management.” Unfortunately, for many people, anger can become a problem and ruin their relationships, careers, and lives. I help people for whom anger has become a problem through developing behavioral and emotional self-awareness, understanding about triggers and underlying causes, and effective coping skills (aka “tools”) that can help them manage their anger reactions in more constructive ways.

Anger is wired into all of us and is essential for survival. It is an intelligent emotion. It can also be incredibly destructive. Most of the time, it is a secondary emotion which means that an unmet need or another emotion is the driving force behind our anger. I will help you to safely identify what is behind your anger and give you tools to effectively regulate it. (I will also help you heal and enhance any relationships previously damaged by your anger.)

Having experienced a father with significant rage and having, over the years, outgrown anger myself, I am both very empathetic about anger and effective at assisting clients reduce it.

For most of us, on occasion, anger can be far out of proportion to the event that triggers it, and for some of us, it is a recurring problem that interferes with our work and our most important relationships. I help people with practical strategies to avoid immediate damage from uncontrolled anger, and I help them to understand their anger more fully and make more effective choices for themselves and others.

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 is often misunderstood- associated with aggressive or violent behaviors. Anger is actually a powerful "inner" reaction, a life energy that is arising as a protest against mistreatment or pain- sometimes a way to stand up for oneself. Thus, in my work, we learn how to harness the bodily feel and energy of anger- in order to sense its meaning, and to experience its power. From there, we often discover underlying pain, hurt, trauma, fear- which we can also experience and process. We learn to identify triggers for angry reactions- and develop tools to harness this energy, rather than let it act out in destructive ways. Anger therapy is a thus bodily process of healing, restoring spirit.

A lot of people "bottle and blow," not saying what they want to say a bunch of times and then blowing up. So a big part of managing anger has to do with finding better ways to get what you want. There are also helpful strategies for containing your impulse to blow up, so it doesn't get away from you and make things worse. Lots of people think that it's good to "blow off steam," but in fact we have clear data that "venting" anger actually makes you more angry!
