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.

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.

Many words express some aspect of anger: frustration, aggravation, irritation, rage. You may not be able to decide sometimes what part of your anger is good and what is not. You do know if you are angry more than you want to be. You know if other people run the other way when you are angry. You know if anger is a helpful part of your life or a wedge you drive between you and others. The bottom line is what are you going to do about it? I'm not a big fan of anger management. People manage their anger in all kinds of unhelpful ways. What I want to help you do is understand when your anger is a friend to you and when it is destroying you. If that sounds like what you need, give me a call.

Children can say the darnedest things and sometimes parents aren't prepared for them. When possible, we can curb explosive anger through parent strategies alone. And at other times it takes a 2 pronged approach of both parent strategies and children learning skills. We offer both parent training and skill based learning to support appropriate expression of feelings and productive problem solving.

Anger management plays a large role in many concerns that bring people to therapy. Anger often gets a bad rap in society and is misunderstood as a "bad" emotion. I work with people to understand that anger is a sign of feeling violated and/or sensing that something within our experience is not OK and difficult to accept. Once we can decipher what is truly happening, I work with people to practice recognizing the signs of worsening anger, the often co-occuring emotional states such as depression and fear, and practice management techniques that are helpful in the moment as well as to prevent increasing moments of anger, rage or irritation.

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.

While anger is a natural emotion which everyone feels now and then, it can be very destructive when it gets out of control. When that happens, it can easily take a toll on you and those around you, leading to relationship problems, employment problems, and legal problems. The good news is that anger management therapy is a very effective way of getting greater control over your anger. When you see me for anger management therapy, we will identify events contributing to your anger and create a plan together to cope with the anger so that you remain in control. Give me a call today for a free consultation and we can put together a preliminary plan over the telephone.

I've seen many clients over the years with anger management issues. Men require a therapist's sensitivity to the issues they use anger to deal with. Learning the practical skills to deal with anger and understanding the issues of entitlement, humiliation, control, and fear that often provoke rage or it's opposite, suppressing, internalizing it, is my goal in working with clients through individual and couple's counseling. I see many couples where their anger with each other contaminates possibilities of working on common issues so I work with couples to disentangle their disruptive, sometimes abusive communications through a combination of individual and couple's counseling.

No one likes to see red. No one wants to feel out of control or unable to manage their emotions. Through therapy, you can gain insight into triggers, hot spots and factors that affect your anger and help you learn to be less reactive and more in control of your actions. Anger is just one of many emotions that we experience and often times it can be sparked by other more vulnerable emotions such as fear or hurt. In therapy, you will experience a non-judgmental, safe space to discuss experiences, thoughts and feelings that lead to anger in order to gain insight and change problem behaviors.

In addition to this we will learn skills for emotional regulation and coping. You will gain insight into your anger as well as specific and realistic tools to implement in the heat of the moment.

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.
