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.

My approach to anger management is global. Anger is a symptom of either underlying pathology or mental illness or a personality pattern which might have developed over a course of life. Many times patients with anger suffer from a psychiatric illness which must be treated first before developing a treatment plan. Anger management approach must be unique to a given patient.

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 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.

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.

As a society we tell people they shouldn't be angry. But anger is a hard-wired emotion that's part of our physical and emotional make-up. What we do with that anger however is another thing altogether. Many people with anger management issues, or people who feel overwhelmed or engulf by their anger, come to therapy feeling lost as to how to handle what they are experiencing and regret the aftermath of their "anger management." I will help you understand the deeper meanings and anchors to your anger so that instead of fearing it, mis-using it, or snuffing it out with addiction, you will be able to process and understand it in a healthy manner.

EMDR(Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing)can prove extremely helpful when clients are struggling to control their tempers. Often they have experienced trauma--such as childhood abuse--that results in their being triggered by current situations. They then lash out at those close to them and may not even understand why they are so angry. EMDR can help them to resolve the trauma, so that they no longer are triggered. I also teach skills from DBT(Dialectical Behavioral Therapy)that help clients to better regulate their emotions and more skillfully handle moments of crisis so that they do not act out in ways that they later regret.

No one likes to see red. No one wants to feel out of control or unable to manage their emotions. Through therapy, you can gain insight into triggers, hot spots and factors that affect your anger and help you learn to be less reactive and more in control of your actions. Anger is just one of many emotions that we experience and often times it can be sparked by other more vulnerable emotions such as fear or hurt. In therapy, you will experience a non-judgmental, safe space to discuss experiences, thoughts and feelings that lead to anger in order to gain insight and change problem behaviors.
