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.

Have you ever lost your temper and then thought "why did I react that way"? Do you struggle to communicate with people in your life without getting mad or defensive, yelling, or withdrawing/isolating from the situation all together? You are not alone. Many people struggle with managing their anger and finding other ways to communicate their frustrations without verbal and physical aggression. I work with individuals struggling to regulate their emotions by finding the feelings underneath the anger and learning appropriate strategies like mindfulness, distress tolerance, and emotion regulation to help them communicate their needs effectively.
