Relationships can be infuriating sometimes. Spending your life with 1 person who thinks completely differently than you comes with inevitable challenges. It's hard to know, sometimes, how to deal with conflict appropriately in a relationship. Often things escalate to a point that no productive conversation can even happen any more. I use research proven methods to help my clients understand and refocus their anger in the relationship. You will learn how to better communicate with each other and what to do if anger is starting to take over. Arguments have potential to be healthy in a relationship and promote growth. I can help you get there.

Anger is a normal human emotion that we all experience. The way we express anger can be what distinguishes us as being healthy or unhealthy partners, parents, co-workers, employees or managers. Anger is generally a surface emotion. Beneath it lies another strong emotion, usually sadness, hurt, fear or inadequacy. In our efforts to protect ourselves from being vulnerable we often act out in anger, which generally takes us farther away from our true goals. In my work with you I will help you understand your anger in a different way and provide you with techniques and coping skills to manage this strong emotion moving you closer to your ultimate goals and strengthening your relationships.

Is your child out of control? Are there holes in your walls, broken items, lots of tantrums, or siblings getting hurt in your home? Let me help! I specialize in working with youth aged 3-25. I can help you identify from where these behaviors are coming and strategize to help make your home more peaceful and your child less stressed. Sometimes, self-harm behavior is also a symptom of anger, but directed at oneself. Kids behaviors are typically goal oriented, and it's the adults' job to decipher the kid code! Give me a call for a free consultation, and if I'm not the right match for you, I'll send you somewhere nearby that may be a better resource!

Most people who have difficulty managing their anger have unintentionally allowed it to build up over years and years. If this pain is not alleviated, it builds and builds until it is expressed in a verbally or physically violent outburst. Just as a volcano fills with hot lava and erupts unexpectedly, a person's anger is released in a similar phenomenon. I can help you process these emotions and channel them in a more productive manner so that you can live a healthier, happier life.

Anger management is really not about anger at all. It's about other things that I will discuss with my clients. Once they figure out what is the true basis for the anger then they can start to work on tempering their reaction to anger. Anger doesn't feel good to either the person on the receiving end, nor to the person who is raging or losing control. No one really likes the feeling of "being-out-of-control" - except addicts. There are many ways of getting your point across without being physical, raging, or insulting. We can work on this together. I believe you will find it beneficial. It is not a typical "Anger Management Class". Just one to one.

I use a pyscho educational approach with working with anger management. In that I teach about anger being a secondary emotion that often protects hurt and fear. We go through the anger cycle and ways to change that cycle. The goal is help clients move from destructive behaviors to constructive communication and behaviors. A typical anger management process takes four to six sessions.
