Anger is good! This may seem contrary to what you've always believed about anger. You've probably spent a lot of time and energy trying to get rid of it. That would be a big mistake. Did you know that God was angry at times? If God was angry, how could it be wrong to feel anger? I propose the issue is not in the emotion itself, but in how we express it. You'll benefit from counseling for anger issues by learning healthy ways to use your anger, becoming more emotionally insightful, and developing skills to become connected deeper relationally.

Pain is often what lies buried underneath anger. Anger can be a very effective defense against incurring any further pain or feeling the pain that is already there. Anger can also be a catalyst, helping to motivate us to make a change in our lives. However, when we hold onto anger after its usefulness has expired, (it is no longer constructive)or we are not in control of our anger and as a result we act out in destructive ways, anger is suddenly a huge liability. When we act destructively, and not constructively we are caught in a way of life that does not allow for further growth. Learning new coping skills to help manage anger is an act of courage and the first step toward healing.

I have never met a person who doesn't have some reason to be angry. But, I have also seen much displaced anger, rage disproportunate to the situation at hand and relationships destroyed due to anger. If your anger is bothering you and getting between you and the people you love, call me today. I have been able to help many people see where their anger may originate and better navigate their emotions, thoughts and behaviors. There is hope for those who call.

One of the first steps in working with chronic anger and irritability is to rule out factors such as depression or even brain trauma and dementia. Once those factors are ruled out, it is important to look for patterns when anger flareups occur, and to increase awareness of "early warning signs" and retrain the body to respond to symptoms of "flooding" (increased blood pressure, heart rate, etc.) with calming strategies (deep breathing exercises and mindfullness practices). Finally, looking at thoughts and beliefs that contribute to feeling angry can help change the frequency and intensity of anger.

Uncontrolled anger can be destructive not only to your relationships, but to your mental and physical health. There are many successful techniques that can help you to control and channel that anger into more positive and productive ways. It is also important to examine the source of your anger. Many times we have been treated in ways that are abusive and hurtful. We have experienced situations that seem impossible to understand. When those issues are left unresolved, anger can be a natural response. Together we can work toward a resolution in those areas of your life.

To give a specific example, PTSD tends to generate angry people. If you find yourself going through the work day and suddenly a person says something fairly mundane to you and suddenly you want to dump your coffee on them, you may have been triggered. I love helping clients name their triggers and begin to cope and even heal from their anger triggers.

Anger is a basic human emotion that is used mostly when we feel threatened, harmed, betrayed, or disrespected. However, the extent to which we use anger is based upon attitude. Having an unsympathetic view of the world can cause you to quickly jump to conclusions that produce unpleasant results. My approach to anger management helps my client identify triggers to their anger in order to be able to avoid or defuse them rather than automatically react to them. To learn coping skills that will help reduce the level of stress in their lives and to practice being assertive, not aggressive in order to remain in control of their feelings.

Everyone gets angry at times, but some people struggle with aggression that can interfere with their ability to have healthy relationships. Anger can stem from many things but domestic violence, substance abuse and trauma are the most common. I use a cognitive-behavioral approach to help clients understand what is fueling their anger and then learn positive coping skills to manage those emotions.
