Anger is a secondary emotion. We need to identify what other emotions are being experienced, the ones that we are less inclined to share with someone else. Anger is also about frustration over needs being met. We must learn to be appropriately assertive regarding our needs, in order to avoid being angry. That will also facilitate our being more empathetic towards others.

Anger Management Counseling helps clients process their feelings of anger and learn appropriate ways to express anger. Clients learn to recognize their anger triggers in order to reduce, avoid, or prepare for those triggers. Clients also learn to recognize their body's early warning signs that tell them they are becoming angry so that they can use the skills they will learn in Anger Management Counseling to diffuse that anger. Clients will learn to recognize how their thoughts contribute to their anger. Relaxation skills are taught to prevent inappropriate anger, keep anger from escalating, and to calm intense anger feelings to a productive level.

Anger becomes problematic when it leads us to lash out and hurt the people we care the most about. Sometimes we feel a large amount of guilt, shame, or embarrassment after these incidents and make promises to ourselves and others to change. In therapy, you will be given the tools necessary to change your anger patterns. By addressing the problematic behaviors, learning new coping skills, and identifying triggers for anger we will work to reduce the frequency and intensity of outbursts. Two things have been present in the hundreds of people I’ve helped with anger, and that’s a genuine desire to change and a willingness to ask for help.

I use primarily a cognitive behavioral approach (CBT) to therapy. This means I help individuals identify the perceptions or interpretations which may trigger an aggressive or angry response. By distinguishing between feelings vs. facts, and reaction vs. response, an individual can learn to substitute a more innocuous, and usually more accurate interpretation that leads to a healthier behavioral choice.

For me, anger management cannot exist in isolation; it is part of the fabric of your life, affecting many. Thus, we address it in that broader context. We look together at how you learned those reactive patterns, what it's costing you, how you would benefit from changing them - how others for whom you care will benefit, and what has stopped you from changing them. From that framework we identify and you learn the specific tools needed for you to change the only thing you have control over: your response to whatever life experiences you encounter. You CAN stop violating your standards you hold for yourself & learn to manage what feels out of your control!
