In dealing with anger management, I do not simply try to focus on counting to 10 and other superficial control mechanisms. Instead, I try to help the individual to learn to deal more effectively with the underlying causes of the anger. Anger is a defensive response to perceived threat. Thus, I help the individual to uncover, recognize and deal more effectively with the perceived threat - perceived loss of love and respect from a loved one is the most common threat. We all feel hurt when we perceive that our loved one feels or thinks less of us.

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!

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.

If after getting a flat tire, you think and continue to say to yourself: "This sucks"…This is terrible"…"Why does this always happen to me?"…"I can’t stand it"… anger will be the likely emotional response. And if you typically think in a negative way, then you will likely be more prone to psychological and physical difficulties like anger, poor relationships, stroke and heart disease.On the other hand, someone who thinks to himself "I’m glad that I have a spare tire"…"I can handle this"…"This is a hassle, not a horror", will react in a more realistic manner. Cognitive behavioral therapy can help you learn how to cope more effectively with life's challenges and lead a 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.

Anger is not bad by itself. Getting adrenaline drunk though, can give you power at the time, but can also be destructive. Other types of anger may be hidden from view, but slowly eat away at your happiness. I can help you find your triggers, understand how they affect you, and work with you to develop coping tools to both prevent and recover from the stress hormones that accompany anger.
