Have you ever lost your temper and then thought "why did I react that way"? Do you struggle to communicate with people in your life without getting mad or defensive, yelling, or withdrawing/isolating from the situation all together? You are not alone. Many people struggle with managing their anger and finding other ways to communicate their frustrations without verbal and physical aggression. I work with individuals struggling to regulate their emotions by finding the feelings underneath the anger and learning appropriate strategies like mindfulness, distress tolerance, and emotion regulation to help them communicate their needs effectively.

I help individuals learn to feel all of their feelings. This includes learning how to feel their anger and express it effectively and appropriately as opposed to ineffectively or destructively. Anger is a tricky emotion to understand because it has so much energy. The energy of anger has to be handled in strategic ways---which when done so can be a source of positive potential allowing the individual to address the issues that are causing them so much frustration.

In the treatment of anger management, you will learn that the emotion of anger is not the problem. Instead, it's how we respond to anger that causes us problems. Anger management therapy therefore focuses on how you can experience and communicate anger in a way that strengthens your relationships. Additionally, you will learn to identify the triggers to your anger, which will likely decrease the amount of anger you experience.

Anger typically mask other feelings and needs. Often a person's way of expressing anger directly relates to how anger was managed by one's caretakers in childhood. While it can be difficult to sort it all out, self-awareness is key to managing feelings of anger. My approach to developing anger management skills in psychotherapy is first to identify patterns of behavior around anger and probable triggers to explosive episodes. Secondly, with this information, specific behavioral strategies can be developed to minimize risks associated with unregulated anger. And finally, with this greater stability, deeper self-exploration can be pursued that will lead to improved anger management.
