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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

I am a certified anger management specialist. I am listed with Will County as a resource for anger management classes. Anger management classes are done in a group format. The court requires a 26 week course, which is not covered by insurance. If you are not court ordered and wish to work on your anger issues, this would be during individual therapy and would be covered like any other mental health counseling.

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.

Children and teens who struggle with anger, behavior problems, and oppositional defiance can greatly benefit from working with a therapist. Through learning more appropriate ways to express frustration and gaining coping tools to deal with big feelings, children are able to interact in more positive ways with those around them. After completing therapy, they are able to engage in healthier relationships with their peers, parents, and teachers.

Relationships can be infuriating sometimes. Spending your life with 1 person who thinks completely differently than you comes with inevitable challenges. It's hard to know, sometimes, how to deal with conflict appropriately in a relationship. Often things escalate to a point that no productive conversation can even happen any more. I use research proven methods to help my clients understand and refocus their anger in the relationship. You will learn how to better communicate with each other and what to do if anger is starting to take over. Arguments have potential to be healthy in a relationship and promote growth. I can help you get there.
