Occasional anger is a normal part of life. When expressed appropriately anger can be both therapeutic and helpful. However, when anger is expressed inappropriately or with great intensity it can become very destructive to one's relationships or one's self. When this happens it may be very helpful to consult a therapist with skill in dealing with anger management problems. At Portrait Health Centers, therapy can greatly benefit the person seeking treatment for anger management.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 original 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.

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.
