Anger management plays a large role in many concerns that bring people to therapy. Anger often gets a bad rap in society and is misunderstood as a "bad" emotion. I work with people to understand that anger is a sign of feeling violated and/or sensing that something within our experience is not OK and difficult to accept. Once we can decipher what is truly happening, I work with people to practice recognizing the signs of worsening anger, the often co-occuring emotional states such as depression and fear, and practice management techniques that are helpful in the moment as well as to prevent increasing moments of anger, rage or irritation.

In dealing with anger management, I do not simply try to focus on counting to 10 and other superficial control mechanisms. Instead, I try to help the individual to learn to deal more effectively with the underlying causes of the anger. Anger is a defensive response to perceived threat. Thus, I help the individual to uncover, recognize and deal more effectively with the perceived threat - perceived loss of love and respect from a loved one is the most common threat. We all feel hurt when we perceive that our loved one feels or thinks less of us.

Do you feel that your emotions can high-jack your relationships? Do you struggle with anger? Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy is a very effective way of gaining control over anger and other emotionally impulsive patterns. Individuals who seek counseling for these issues are more likely to conquer the emotions that trigger outbursts. Don't waste another minute trying to do it alone. Give me a call and we can work on this together.

Most people who have difficulty managing their anger have unintentionally allowed it to build up over years and years. If this pain is not alleviated, it builds and builds until it is expressed in a verbally or physically violent outburst. Just as a volcano fills with hot lava and erupts unexpectedly, a person's anger is released in a similar phenomenon. I can help you process these emotions and channel them in a more productive manner so that you can live a healthier, happier life.

Managing anger can be challenging perhaps because we do not want to appear hurt or vulnerable, either in front of loved ones or a therapist. Don't worry, we can talk about these issues and still have you feel strong. I understand we do not want to hurt others when we are angry but we want to express ourselves.... In therapy we will learn new ways to communicate what we are angry about and learn better ways of expressing ourselves as well.

While anger is a natural emotion which everyone feels now and then, it can be very destructive when it gets out of control. When that happens, it can easily take a toll on you and those around you, leading to relationship problems, employment problems, and legal problems. The good news is that anger management therapy is a very effective way of getting greater control over your anger. When you see me for anger management therapy, we will identify events contributing to your anger and create a plan together to cope with the anger so that you remain in control. Give me a call today for a free consultation and we can put together a preliminary plan over the telephone.

I assist clients with both cognitive behavioral and insight oriented therapy to understand the roots of their anger, how anger is a secondary emotion, and various techniques and skills to effectively manage their anger by directing it in positive ways, rather than either "stuffing" it or "acting out." Often as clients increase their self awareness, they are able to effectively change their responses in situations and relationships that help them be more proactive in handling their anger.
