When you have an Anger Management issue, the smallest thing can set you off. You are always on the defensive, feeling that everyone is out to get you, and those around you fear your outbursts. You, and your loved ones, do not have to live this way any longer. Our goal is to help you recognize when you are becoming angry, take action to calm down and to manage situation differently. We do not want to eliminate your anger, as this is a normal and healthy human emotion, but to have you express your thoughts and feelings is a more positive and constructive way.

Got anger? We can help! We have experience contracting with schools and working with clients who have been mandated for anger management counseling. Clients will learn new techniques and strategies to effectively communicate more positively with others. Sometimes we grow up learning emotional regulation from others around us and it may become ingrained in how we handle conflict. With support, clients can identify where they have learned their behaviors from and ways to transform those behavior into more positive ones.

Do you feel that your emotions can high-jack your relationships? Do you struggle with anger? Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy is a very effective way of gaining control over anger and other emotionally impulsive patterns. 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. Give me a call and we can work on this together.

Anger is not a negative emotion; yet, it is often an "umbrella" emotion - it serves as a defense mechanism for underlying feelings and preventing further emotional harm to one's self. Unfortunately, it's also one of the most damaging emotions we can have toward ourselves or others. If you're seeking help for anger, there is hope - and yes, there are proven, clinical techniques to reduce emotional inflammation, even during times when anger sets in, and you struggle to identify their true underlying emotions. We'll discover new ways of communicating to others, find validation in your feelings, and learn in-the-moment techniques to manage anger across your lifespan.

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.

Anger is a normal and natural feeling, but if your anger controls your life, causes harm to relationships, stands in the way of opportunities, or gets the better of you in any other way, steps need to be taken to manage your anger and find ways to express it in appropriate ways. Being able to identify situations, or thoughts that trigger your anger, as well as your physical responses, paves the way to discovery of how to calm yourself and take control. Anger management counseling can give you personalized, practical, one-on-one help with this.

I assist clients with both cognitive behavioral and insight oriented therapy to understand the roots of their anger, how anger is a secondary emotion, and various techniques and skills to effectively manage their anger by directing it in positive ways, rather than either "stuffing" it or "acting out." Often as clients increase their self awareness, they are able to effectively change their responses in situations and relationships that help them be more proactive in handling their anger.

I've seen many clients over the years with anger management issues. Men require a therapist's sensitivity to the issues they use anger to deal with. Learning the practical skills to deal with anger and understanding the issues of entitlement, humiliation, control, and fear that often provoke rage or it's opposite, suppressing, internalizing it, is my goal in working with clients through individual and couple's counseling. I see many couples where their anger with each other contaminates possibilities of working on common issues so I work with couples to disentangle their disruptive, sometimes abusive communications through a combination of individual and couple's counseling.

The key to anger management is learning not to respond to the small things in life. It is learning to focus on impulse control with emotions and learning to filter the impact of words. Not controlling anger will cause a lifetime of chaotic and destructive relationships. Another focus of anger management counseling is to heal the emotional hurts and trust issues that brought you to a place where your natural tendency is be defensive towards others instead of accepting and loving.
