Children and teens who struggle with anger, behavior problems, and oppositional defiance can greatly benefit from working with a therapist. Through learning more appropriate ways to express frustration and gaining coping tools to deal with big feelings, children are able to interact in more positive ways with those around them. After completing therapy, they are able to engage in healthier relationships with their peers, parents, and teachers.

Anger is a healthy emotion but when it gets out of control it can become very destructive to self and others. In a curriculum based program participants will gain an understanding of the role that anger has in your life and the triggers for these feelings. Sometimes anger is involved with other environmental, emotional and psychological distress in your life. These areas also will be discussed, assessed and resolved in a compassionate and collaborative manner so you can achieve emotional health, wellness and happiness.

Anger provides information about what we think/feel is being threatened, and it provides the energy to act on that information. Since we are wired to become angry WHEN appropriate, only the misuse of anger is a problem. However, anger often hijacks our thinking which then compounds the original problem. When helping clients develop improved anger management skills, I help them understand the elements of our emotional-physical anger response and learn to diffuse them and effectively use the information and energy that anger provides.

our approach to anger management not only includes treatment of symptoms but also focuses on assessing and exploring the cause and source of anger. The source reveals a number of things. For example, a person who shows anger may suffer from a psychiatric disorder which needs to be treated. Anger is sometimes just a symptom of an underlying untreated psychiatric disorder. Our anger management approach thus includes diagnosis, and individualized treatment plan.

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.

Managing anger can be challenging perhaps because we do not want to appear hurt or vulnerable, either in front of loved ones or a therapist. Don't worry, we can talk about these issues and still have you feel strong. I understand we do not want to hurt others when we are angry but we want to express ourselves.... In therapy we will learn new ways to communicate what we are angry about and learn better ways of expressing ourselves as well.

As a society we tell people they shouldn't be angry. But anger is a hard-wired emotion that's part of our physical and emotional make-up. What we do with that anger however is another thing altogether. Many people with anger management issues, or people who feel overwhelmed or engulf by their anger, come to therapy feeling lost as to how to handle what they are experiencing and regret the aftermath of their "anger management." I will help you understand the deeper meanings and anchors to your anger so that instead of fearing it, mis-using it, or snuffing it out with addiction, you will be able to process and understand it in a healthy manner.

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.

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.
