As a therapist that engages my patients to set therapeutic goals, I often help patients with anger issues to evaluate all aspects of their lives, including sensory issues, negative thinking, diet, exercise, general lifestyle, problem solving and coping abilities, work, etcetera, in order to develop strategies to minimize their anger and negative reactivity to stimuli.

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.

Anger is a completely normal human emotion that turns destructive when it gets out of control. Anger is an emotional state that varies from mild irritation to intense fury and rage. It can be caused by both external and internal events. When anger gets out of control it causes problems in your personal relationships, the workplace, and in the quality of your life. Some people get angry more easily and more intensely than others. These people can express their anger in loud ways or express it by being chronically irritable, grumpy, socially withdrawn, or getting physically ill. Expressing your anger in an assertive manner is healthy. If anger is not allowed an outward expression it can turn inward on you causing hypertension, high blood pressure,...(view profile to read more)

I have counseled hundreds of individuals who struggle with Anger Management for years as an Outpatient Therapist and Group Therapist and in my private practice as well. I help a client identify coping skills that will help them de-escalate their emotionals before acting out on their anger. I also use mindfulness techniques in get in touch with one's body, mind and emotions. I also have my clients write down actual events where they 'blew up', and look at new ways to handle these situations.

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.

Anger is not bad by itself. Getting adrenaline drunk though, can give you power at the time, but can also be destructive. Other types of anger may be hidden from view, but slowly eat away at your happiness. I can help you find your triggers, understand how they affect you, and work with you to develop coping tools to both prevent and recover from the stress hormones that accompany anger.

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.

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.

You know your anger has made real messes in your life--at work, with friends, in your love life. I can show you many ways to get to the roots of your dark demons and fiery dragons. There are reasons and excuses that have been fueling your anger and you can only benefit from studying yourself. Saying you are sorry hasn't stopped your anger from returning. Anger that you understand and manage can serve you. Without looking inside yourself, anger will control you and cost you a lot more than time and money.

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.

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 is so much more than just anger. Under Anger there are a lot of deeper feelings that have usually gone repressed or unvalidated. The first step in working with anger is addressing those underlying thoughts and feelings to get to the root of the anger. We'll find new ways to cope with life's stressors and incorporate new ways of interacting with others.

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 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.

Anger is an emotion that can be very hard to manage and respond to effectively because most people often have a very automatic and impulsive response when they experience anger. Through dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) we can begin to identify emotions and begin to slow down in order to recognize ways to respond to emotions rather than react to them. This will help you feel more in control of your emotions as well as improve your relationships with others because of your ability to manage and respond to anger effectively.

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.

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.
