Anger is not a negative emotion; yet, it is often an "umbrella" emotion - it serves as a defense mechanism for underlying feelings and preventing further emotional harm to one's self. Unfortunately, it's also one of the most damaging emotions we can have toward ourselves or others. If you're seeking help for anger, there is hope - and yes, there are proven, clinical techniques to reduce emotional inflammation, even during times when anger sets in, and you struggle to identify their true underlying emotions. We'll discover new ways of communicating to others, find validation in your feelings, and learn in-the-moment techniques to manage anger across your lifespan.

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.

Anger management requires a calm and respectful relationship that I build with the client. Often the client is overwhelmed and fearful, hiding behind a boisterous, heated anger. Given an ongoing opportunity to express one's situation and to be heard with genuine concern is a necessary step in the healing process for those who suffer with anger issues. Of course, we also discuss boundaries and stopping measures to manage impulse control.

I've seen many clients over the years with anger management issues. Men require a therapist's sensitivity to the issues they use anger to deal with. Learning the practical skills to deal with anger and understanding the issues of entitlement, humiliation, control, and fear that often provoke rage or it's opposite, suppressing, internalizing it, is my goal in working with clients through individual and couple's counseling. I see many couples where their anger with each other contaminates possibilities of working on common issues so I work with couples to disentangle their disruptive, sometimes abusive communications through a combination of individual and couple's counseling.

Anger is so much more than just anger. Under Anger there are a lot of deeper feelings that have usually gone repressed or unvalidated. The first step in working with anger is addressing those underlying thoughts and feelings to get to the root of the anger.

When you have an Anger Management issue, the smallest thing can set you off. You are always on the defensive, feeling that everyone is out to get you, and those around you fear your outbursts. You, and your loved ones, do not have to live this way any longer. Our goal is to help you recognize when you are becoming angry, take action to calm down and to manage situation differently. We do not want to eliminate your anger, as this is a normal and healthy human emotion, but to have you express your thoughts and feelings is a more positive and constructive way.

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.

The key to anger management is learning not to respond to the small things in life. It is learning to focus on impulse control with emotions and learning to filter the impact of words. Not controlling anger will cause a lifetime of chaotic and destructive relationships. Another focus of anger management counseling is to heal the emotional hurts and trust issues that brought you to a place where your natural tendency is be defensive towards others instead of accepting and loving.

Anger is a normal and natural feeling, but if your anger controls your life, causes harm to relationships, stands in the way of opportunities, or gets the better of you in any other way, steps need to be taken to manage your anger and find ways to express it in appropriate ways. Being able to identify situations, or thoughts that trigger your anger, as well as your physical responses, paves the way to discovery of how to calm yourself and take control. Anger management counseling can give you personalized, practical, one-on-one help with this.

Anger is an emotion that can be very hard to manage and respond to effectively because most people often have a very automatic and impulsive response when they experience anger. Through dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) we can begin to identify emotions and begin to slow down in order to recognize ways to respond to emotions rather than react to them. This will help you feel more in control of your emotions as well as improve your relationships with others because of your ability to manage and respond to anger effectively.
