Anger is a natural part of our emotional landscape but if you find that you are feeling angry more than you would like and/or you have difficulty expressing your anger in healthy ways I can help you. My style is warm and collaborative and I will provide a safe and reliable space for us to explore your anger. By making links between your past and present experience we can work together to increase your awareness, generate movement, and let go of some of your anger, making room for more positive feelings.

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.

My approach to anger management is unique in that I don't believe it is something to be controlled or caged. Anger, like all emotions, has a dark side and a light side. It has an important message for us that most definitely needs expression. My hopes would be to help you channel anger towards being a positive in your life. Anger does hold life force so let's work on directing that life force towards good in your world.

I help men and teens who are struggling with anger management, transform their lives. You will benefit from psychotherapy by 1) learning to control your emotions in the moment, and 2) reducing your vulnerability to becoming overwhelmed and destructively angry in the first place. Relying on more than 10 years experience working with men, I will teach you how to monitor your state of physiological arousal so that you can intervene before you lose control. I will also help you explore the origins of your anger, in other words, where you "learned" to be angry in the first place. Gradually, you will gain a sense of emotional freedom and power as you increase your control and self-awareness.

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.

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....

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.

I have extensive experience working with men who are struggling with their anger management. Oftentimes, such men come to see me because the way they are experiencing and expressing their anger is causing serious damage to their relationships, either at home or on the job. Ironically, such men often feel simultaneously disconnected from and ineffectual in their sense of personal power. I help men access their own vulnerability as a way to start feeling what is behind the ineffective expressions of anger and rage. From there, men can begin to reclaim a more true and embodied sense of their strength and power, one that is far more connected with the heart.

i have extensive experience in this area, having worked with Severely Disturbed Children for five years in a special school setting, and then moving over to work with an adult population who have committed crimes and have been incarcerated in the County Jail. I know the techniques needed to facilitate a person to deal more effectively with angry feelings so that his or her relationships can be repaired and blossom and they can enjoy life to the fullest.

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.

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.
