Anger provides information about what we think/feel is being threatened, and it provides the energy to act on that information. Since we are wired to become angry WHEN appropriate, only the misuse of anger is a problem. However, anger often hijacks our thinking which then compounds the orginal problem. When helping clients develop improved anger management skills, I help them understand the elements of our emotional-physical anger response and learn to diffuse them and effectively use the information and energy that anger provides.

Is your temper raging “out of control”? Do small things set you off? Do you react with sudden outbursts, flinging insults? Or, do you retreat in silent rage? Do you often feel your anger is justified, but upon reflection, regret your behavior? Or, do you find yourself locked in constant battle with people closest to you and those you love? Anger is a natural emotion, but unregulated anger can be destructive. It takes a toll on the individual and those around him or her, eroding self-esteem, wreaking havoc, and perpetuating feelings of disconnection, isolation and even loneliness. We can help you manage angry outbursts, understand your anger’s origins including unknown, underlying painful emotions, identify healthy coping strategies, channel your anger...(view profile to read more)

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.

Many words express some aspect of anger: frustration, aggravation, irritation, rage. You may not be able to decide sometimes what part of your anger is good and what is not. You do know if you are angry more than you want to be. You know if other people run the other way when you are angry. You know if anger is a helpful part of your life or a wedge you drive between you and others. The bottom line is what are you going to do about it? I'm not a big fan of anger management. People manage their anger in all kinds of unhelpful ways. What I want to help you do is understand when your anger is a friend to you and when it is destroying you. If that sounds like what you need, give me a call.

Anger is an emotion created by our G-s for a reason. However scripture tells us to be angry but not to let the Sun go down on our anger. Anger must be separated from holding a grudge of having a savings account of wrong done. Some of the ways in dealing with anger is to understand where it comes from. Sometime it is a bitter seed from our past that has taken root in our hearts. Then we must forgive others that have transgresses against us and ourselves as well. By learning how to channel this emotion to a non destructive way. By learning this control we then feel more in charge of our life.

Anger is a normal human emotion that we all experience. The way we express anger can be what distinguishes us as being healthy or unhealthy partners, parents, co-workers, employees or managers. Anger is generally a surface emotion. Beneath it lies another strong emotion, usually sadness, hurt, fear or inadequacy. In our efforts to protect ourselves from being vulnerable we often act out in anger, which generally takes us farther away from our true goals. In my work with you I will help you understand your anger in a different way and provide you with techniques and coping skills to manage this strong emotion moving you closer to your ultimate goals and strengthening your relationships.

our approach to anger management not only includes treatment of symptoms but also focuses on assessing and exploring the cause and source of anger. The source reveals a number of things. For example, a person who shows anger may suffer from a psychiatric disorder which needs to be treated. Anger is sometimes just a symptom of an underlying untreated psychiatric disorder. Our anger management approach thus includes diagnosis, and individualized treatment plan.
