Anger is part of our emotional life and does not, in and of itself, predict anything bad or good. Anger, if it is not well managed, can however be very destructive to individuals and relationships. Exploding anger and stuffing anger have the very same hurtful physiological effects. The relevant issues need to be dealt with in an effective manner to fully deal with the angry feelings. The start of therapy is an assessment of the individuals style of anger. Learning cognitive behavioral, self soothing and positive self expression skills can go a long way to help deal with the important issues and manage the feelings of anger and the related hurts.

Anger that comes up with clients is frequently a secondary emotion with the root of the issue being the feeling of being mistreated. Amy helps clients recognize what their anger triggers stem from, and to find an alternative response other than the unwanted anger while still feeling in control. She also aids in helping her clients with developing problem-solving techniques that make her clients feel empowered which assists in helping reduce the risk of frustration or anger.

Anger is an emotion, but experiencing anger is usually not the problem. The problem with anger is usually the way it is expressed through inadequate or unhealthy coping behaviors. People can benefit from anger management when they are willing to address the damage their anger has caused them and how it has hurt or interfered in other situations. When one is willing to learn about and practice healthy coping skills when experiencing anger, relationships can begin to function better and great progress can be achieved.

Anger Management is one of the most common, least understood and least treated difficulties facing families today. Lasting, successful treatment must: 1) provide strategies and tools for the individual to successfully handle anger-triggers in the moment; 2) address the underlying, root causes of the uncontrolled anger. My clients enjoy using the tools needed to successfully manage emotions and respond to situations constructively rather than destructively. Greater peace and confidence comes as they develop the ability to stop before saying or doing something they will regret. Relationships improve dramatically as they trust themselves more and more, and friends and loved ones trust them too.
