Anger management counseling can help to identify stressors and learn the steps to stay calm in the face of anger. The goal is to handle tense situations in more constructive and positive ways by reducing the emotional and physical arousal that anger can cause. It will provide the tools to take back your life and resolve the triggers that result in unplanned anger reactions.

Learning how to manage and reduce reactivity caused by anger is one of the most important and useful tools we can learn. I integrate mindfulness practice into my anger management therapy to assist clients to begin to interrupt the automatic reactions and explosions that get them into trouble. It is also very useful to explore what is under the anger, as anger is typically an automatic reaction that clouds over a mixture of many other powerful, yet hidden emotions (sadness, loss, grief, guilt, etc.).

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 is a normal emotion. Anger is a problem when it is out of control hurtful and destructive. Destructive anger can lead to problems at home, work , school and in relationships. Each persons tolerance level and managing skills are different .Genetic, physiology and ones environment all contribute to the way a person responds to anger. By learning skills to better manage the way an individual appraises a situation and learning positive ways to express and communicate their frustrations and hurts one can experience healthier outcomes.

Anger management has a become a big issue in our country and uncontrolled anger can lead to tragedy. Most angry people are stressed and in our high pressure stressful society there are many "triggers" . I use EMDR to treat the underlying anxiety and stress and use cognitive approaches to help relieve pressure before a person is out of control.

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.

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.

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!

Grey Matters International and the work of Kevin J. Fleming, Ph.D approaches issues of anger management in a very humane yet fresh perspective. You see, anger is a normal emotion but it is the valence (intensity) as well as the coupling choice of what one does with this that is the problem. Telling someone to "not" do it or modifying behavior with a trite psychological plan that only breeds a compliant response is not the way to change anger. Brainwave optimization is a new cutting edge technology that allows one to rewire circuitry responsible for reactivity driving the anger.

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.
