I use primarily a cognitive behavioral approach (CBT) to therapy. This means I help individuals identify the perceptions or interpretations which may trigger an aggressive or angry response. By distinguishing between feelings vs. facts, and reaction vs. response, an individual can learn to substitute a more innocuous, and usually more accurate interpretation that leads to a healthier behavioral choice.

Anger is a normal and natural feeling, but if your anger controls your life, causes harm to relationships, stands in the way of opportunities, or gets the better of you in any other way, steps need to be taken to manage your anger and find ways to express it in appropriate ways. Being able to identify situations, or thoughts that trigger your anger, as well as your physical responses, paves the way to discovery of how to calm yourself and take control. Anger management counseling can give you personalized, practical, one-on-one help with this.
