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.

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.

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.

When you have an Anger Management issue, the smallest thing can set you off. You are always on the defensive, feeling that everyone is out to get you, and those around you fear your outbursts. You, and your loved ones, do not have to live this way any longer. Our goal is to help you recognize when you are becoming angry, take action to calm down and to manage situation differently. We do not want to eliminate your anger, as this is a normal and healthy human emotion, but to have you express your thoughts and feelings is a more positive and constructive way.

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.

Got anger? We can help! We have experience contracting with schools and working with clients who have been mandated for anger management counseling. Clients will learn new techniques and strategies to effectively communicate more positively with others. Sometimes we grow up learning emotional regulation from others around us and it may become ingrained in how we handle conflict. With support, clients can identify where they have learned their behaviors from and ways to transform those behavior into more positive ones.

EMDR(Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing)can prove extremely helpful when clients are struggling to control their tempers. Often they have experienced trauma--such as childhood abuse--that results in their being triggered by current situations. They then lash out at those close to them and may not even understand why they are so angry. EMDR can help them to resolve the trauma, so that they no longer are triggered. I also teach skills from DBT(Dialectical Behavioral Therapy)that help clients to better regulate their emotions and more skillfully handle moments of crisis so that they do not act out in ways that they later regret.
