For me, anger management cannot exist in isolation; it is part of the fabric of your life, affecting many. Thus, we address it in that broader context. We look together at how you learned those reactive patterns, what it's costing you, how you would benefit from changing them - how others for whom you care will benefit, and what has stopped you from changing them. From that framework we identify and you learn the specific tools needed for you to change the only thing you have control over: your response to whatever life experiences you encounter. You CAN stop violating your standards you hold for yourself & learn to manage what feels out of your control!

I use primarily a cognitive behavioral approach (CBT) to therapy. This means I help individuals identify the perceptions or interpretations which may trigger an aggressive or angry response. By distinguishing between feelings vs. facts, and reaction vs. response, an individual can learn to substitute a more innocuous, and usually more accurate interpretation that leads to a healthier behavioral choice.

Anger is a secondary emotion. We need to identify what other emotions are being experienced, the ones that we are less inclined to share with someone else. Anger is also about frustration over needs being met. We must learn to be appropriately assertive regarding our needs, in order to avoid being angry. That will also facilitate our being more empathetic towards others.
