Anger is a feeling that carries information. Anger alerts us to the awareness that we feel threatened in some way. People often get angry because they are in emotional pain. However, showing someone that you are in pain is a more effective way to help others feel remorse for what they did than raging at them. Emotionally intense young adults do not have to destroy any more relationships with "over the top" reactions! There are more effective ways of responding. I can teach these young people simple relaxation and awareness exercises that allow them to tame their anger.

Anger is not only something to "manage." The feelings in anger need to be recognized, understood, and responding to in a way that make sense. You're not bad because you are angry, you treat yourself and others badly when your trapped in intense feelings. I help people come out of the shame of being labeled in negative ways because they struggle with anger. Anger becomes less of a struggle when you're not alone in it.

Anger is a necessary emotion. However, many people are unable to manage their anger in a healthy way. This can lead to problems in relationships, family, and work. More seriously, this can lead to problems with the law. I am a Certified Anger Management Specialist. I run groups and executive anger management services to help court mandated and self referred individuals get a handle on their anger.

Anger management isn't meant to rid you of anger, or "fix" your feelings. People who tell you that you feel "too much" or "shouldn't" feel a certain way may be uncomfortable with how you relay emotion, but that doesn't mean you need "fixing." I can help you learn how to work with, not against, your emotions -- whether anger or another strong sensation. The key is practicing forms of expression that support your highest interests rather than sabotaging yourself, your career, or personal relationships for the short-lived relief of either emotional outbursts or self-numbing. Instead, I can teach you to tap into the wisest parts of yourself, so that emotions and behavior synch up healthily.

Most people affected by problem anger spend their time trying to control it and make promises to themselves and others about not getting angry again. Instead of struggling to control anger, there is a way to learn how to accept and observe angry feelings without having to act out in anger. Problem anger is usually a message that something needs to be changed or be released. I use the concepts of Acceptance Commitment Therapy and Narrative Therapy to help clients let go of anger and move towards their preferred way of acting.

Everybody gets angry. Anger is a human emotion which can serve both positive and negative ends which, in itself, is neutral. Frustration, fear, feeling threatened or treated unfairly can trigger an angry outburst in any animal. Anger is a normal human emotion. It can be an appropriate response to injustice, unfairness or discrimination. However, what we need to achieve is a way of expressing anger that is reasonable, measured and proportionate. Cognitive behavioral therapy provides one of many possible answers to managing anger. Feelings are often created by our thoughts and examining our thought processes to see if they are reasonable and rational can help us with emotional regulation.

Like all emotions, it is normal to feel anger. Anger is like the yellow signal light or a dashboard light on our care signifying somethng is wrong. Maybe for you anger is viewed as a protest when you sense something or someone has wronged you. Anger can be also viewed as a justice issue wanting to make sense of the hurt you are feeling. But anger can also be used in a unhealthy way to build a resentment, hold a grudge, and seek revenge. From my counsel you will benefit by understanding how your anger can be helpful versus how your anger can be destructive and abusive to others. You will benefit from expressing anger at something versus attacking or blaming someone.

I have extensive experience treating anger management issues. I have conducted anger management groups that teach and reinforce skills for managing anger. My approach to the treatment of anger issues consists of: assisting client's in understanding the Nonproductive Anger Cycle that perpetuates destructive behavior, educating about the different types of anger, teaching anger management skills, and helping clients explore pain and fear that perpetuates their ineffective expression of anger. Anger management treatment includes helping clients learn to accept their emotions and learn how to tolerate and express their emotions more effectively.

Anger management is both a practical matter and a profound inner journey. We begin by learning to control angry outbursts--harsh words, violence and reactivity that causes us to act in ways that are harmful to others. We learn to identify triggers, to mindfully observe reactions, to reduce stress and to develop alternative behaviors. Then we delve deeper into the roots of anger: often this take us back to unhealed childhood traumas.
