Getting angry is a natural emotion, one that is sometimes hard to control, but often unhelpful. Do you find that you go from 0-100 in the blink of an eye? Well, you're not alone. When angry, it's challenging to see and think clearly. I can help you slow this "blink of an eye" down so you can better manage your anger and angry reactions. I will teach you how to identify your triggers, examine your "anger chain of actions" and develop strategies to help you feel more in control of the situation and able to think and see clearly even in the most strenuous of times.

A psychoanalytic approach to anger moves beyond cognitive and behavioral approaches and allows the client to speak to and work through the complex issues underlying anger specific to each individual. The intention is to effect change at a more lasting level than more generalized treatment allows. Within the psychoanalytic framework, we can also explore the application of mindfulness techniques such as breath work and mindful movement.

No safer place. No better time. Life is too short to live like a volcano, not knowing when the next eruption will occur. Anger is the most destructive of all emotions, and the least productive. If you have lost jobs or relationships because of your anger, then I can help. While you may feel your anger is not an issue, or even a helpful tool to get what you want, it is costing you valuable life resources, and affecting your physical health. I can help you learn how to live life in control while still being able to express yourself emotionally. I can help you find joy in life, resulting in others enjoying you.

Anger, along with guilt, feelings of inadequacy, sexuality, and anxiety, is one of the major issues I work with in individual psychotherapy and marital counseling. My treatment of preference for anger management is primarily psychodynamic; this is because it enables both the patient and myself to identify the underlying issues and what triggers them. Once we have established what the triggers are, we can begin to explore what the underlying psychodynamics are entering new territory where most of the psychotherapy happens.

Anger & Temper Management are approached in a highly individualized manner--taking into account the client's background, personality factors, religious or spiritual beliefs, and their support system. This approach may include subconscious, unconscious, pre-conscious, &/or conscious techniques. This approach may also involve taking into account personality & emotional factors that are specific to the client. Most importantly, this approach takes into account the use of positive and negative triggers that can prevent an explosive reaction in the first place. It's a highly pro-active, pre-emptive approach.

Anger is a necessary emotion that has it's own intelligence. It helps us identify a threat and often motivates us to make improvements. Think, for example, of the American Revolution, the Civil Rights and the Equal Rights Movements, all of which began with a group of people who got angry. But like all good things that our emotions offer us, there is the downside to anger. Anger is usually energizing, and this energy can be harmful if misdirected. It can harm relationships, lead to physical harm, financial problems and sometimes, death. Anger itself is not the problem. It is how that anger is expressed that is the problem. I help people find better ways of expressing themselves.

Very often people find that their angry outbursts surprise them (and those around them). This occurs most often because we haven't dealt with the real source of the anger. Clients often try to convince themselves that they are "over it" or that "it doesn't matter" when, in fact, they aren't over it and it does matter. I see this quite a lot in women - who tend to be socialize not to show anger. Therefore it leaks out in more passive aggressive and subtle ways. It's still anger - but it can be inflicted on herself or the true reason for the anger can be veiled making it difficult for others to figure how why there is an outburst.

Anger is usually a more surface emotion for a deeper emotion such as fear or sadness. Anger can be like a flashing light on a dashboard of a car, indicating trouble inside. It is important to learn to diffuse and go to the root of this symptom. Looking at family of origin issues explains anger that many times seems inappropriate for current situations. I believe a person's past is the key to enjoying the present and fulfilling dreams of the future.

Anger Management Class Anger is a natural emotion that everyone experiences at one time or another, with different levels of frequency and intensity. From a biological perspective, anger is a necessary instinctive, physiological and psychological response to a perceived threat. Anger can become problematic when the situation that elicits it is unwarranted or when the anger experienced is out of proportion to the associated context. Anger can also become distressing and maladaptive when it leads to destructive behaviors, interpersonal conflicts, occupational difficulties, or legal complications. In light of the potentially devastating effects of unhealthy anger responses, anger management.

I work with clients to both understand their angry responses and to improve their behavior. Anger results from our interpretation of situations rather than the actual situation. Anger can prevent people from develping strong connections in relationships. It is difficult to trust a person who frequently responds in an angry manner or whose anger can be out of proportion to the situation. I help clients become less angry so they can improve their current relationships and develop new ones.

Anger is often a cover for fear or sadness. Underlying most anger is a deeper emotion, one that feels paralyzing or helpless. Since sadness and fear feel weak, but anger feels strong and powerful, many people use anger to deal with depression or anxiety. My approach to anger is twofold: 1), to help you learn techniques on how to manage your anger and deal with people and situations that trigger your anger, and 2) to understand the feelings underlying anger and how to overcome those in order to reduce the amount of anger in the first place. Deciding to get help for your anger is a courageous first step toward improving your quality of life and your relationships.
