Anger is not bad by itself. Getting adrenaline drunk though, can give you power at the time, but can also be destructive. Other types of anger may be hidden from view, but slowly eat away at your happiness. I can help you find your triggers, understand how they affect you, and work with you to develop coping tools to both prevent and recover from the stress hormones that accompany anger.

Got anger? We can help! We have experience contracting with schools and working with clients who have been mandated for anger management counseling. Clients will learn new techniques and strategies to effectively communicate more positively with others. Sometimes we grow up learning emotional regulation from others around us and it may become ingrained in how we handle conflict. With support, clients can identify where they have learned their behaviors from and ways to transform those behavior into more positive ones.

As a therapist that engages my patients to set therapeutic goals, I often help patients with anger issues to evaluate all aspects of their lives, including sensory issues, negative thinking, diet, exercise, general lifestyle, problem solving and coping abilities, work, etcetera, in order to develop strategies to minimize their anger and negative reactivity to stimuli.

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.

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.

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.

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 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. We'll find new ways to cope with life's stressors and incorporate new ways of interacting with others.

Learning to have better control of your anger, even if it is only internal, can improve the way in which you deal with situations and with people. It will certainly enable you to respond differently and more effectively. There are many techniques that I can offer and there are resources that are available, such as workbooks, CD's to help with most any kind of issues, and learning control techniques. Some skills are best learned in an office setting.

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 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.

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

Annoyed, aggravated, irritated, frustrated, hostile, infuriated, and full of rage. What do all these words have in common? These words all fall on the emotional spectrum of anger. Anger is not an unhealthy emotion, but sometimes people express their anger in an unhealthy manner. There are alternative healthy ways of expressing and managing one's anger. Karen partners with her clients to explore the reasons for their anger, and then teaches the clients how to manage or release anger in healthy ways.
