Occasional anger is a normal part of life. When expressed appropriately anger can be both therapeutic and helpful. However, when anger is expressed inappropriately or with great intensity it can become very destructive to one's relationships or one's self. When this happens it may be very helpful to consult a therapist with skill in dealing with anger management problems. At Portrait Health Centers, therapy can greatly benefit the person seeking treatment for anger management.

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.

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.

I help individuals learn to feel all of their feelings. This includes learning how to feel their anger and express it effectively and appropriately as opposed to ineffectively or destructively. Anger is a tricky emotion to understand because it has so much energy. The energy of anger has to be handled in strategic ways---which when done so can be a source of positive potential allowing the individual to address the issues that are causing them so much frustration.

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.).

Anger management is sought when someone cannot seem to control their anger and have outbursts and/or become abusive. Sometimes an employer insists that a worker get some help for their anger being displayed at the work place. However, most clients with anger issues are not mandated by the courts or their employer. The client is seeking help for a number of reasons that can have an origin with anger. For instance, here are many of the presenting issues that I have encountered: relationship difficulties, lack of motivation and direction, and depression. I help clients show how anger helps you to set boundaries and know when something is not fair. One can learn to express anger appropriately.

Is your temper raging “out of control”? Do small things set you off? Do you react with sudden outbursts, flinging insults? Or, do you retreat in silent rage? Do you often feel your anger is justified, but upon reflection, regret your behavior? Or, do you find yourself locked in constant battle with people closest to you and those you love? Anger is a natural emotion, but unregulated anger can be destructive. It takes a toll on the individual and those around him or her, eroding self-esteem, wreaking havoc, and perpetuating feelings of disconnection, isolation and even loneliness. We can help you manage angry outbursts, understand your anger’s origins including unknown, underlying painful emotions, identify healthy coping strategies, channel your anger...(view profile to read more)

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.

Is anger getting in the way of getting what you want out of life? Anger can be difficult to control in the moment, which is why prevention is my main treatment focus. Often anger is secondary to other emotions, such as feeling threatened, disrespected, or unheard. Improving communication skills is an important part of treatment, as is understanding the root causes of anger and being able to identify feelings of tension and frustration as they begin to build. How would your life change if you learned healthier ways to express yourself and have your needs met?
