Is your child out of control? Are there holes in your walls, broken items, lots of tantrums, or siblings getting hurt in your home? Let me help! I specialize in working with youth aged 3-25. I can help you identify from where these behaviors are coming and strategize to help make your home more peaceful and your child less stressed. Sometimes, self-harm behavior is also a symptom of anger, but directed at oneself. Kids behaviors are typically goal oriented, and it's the adults' job to decipher the kid code! Give me a call for a free consultation, and if I'm not the right match for you, I'll send you somewhere nearby that may be a better resource!

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.

Anger is a normal emotion. Anger is a problem when it is out of control hurtful and destructive. Destructive anger can lead to problems at home, work , school and in relationships. Each persons tolerance level and managing skills are different .Genetic, physiology and ones environment all contribute to the way a person responds to anger. By learning skills to better manage the way an individual appraises a situation and learning positive ways to express and communicate their frustrations and hurts one can experience healthier outcomes.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Anger management is really not about anger at all. It's about other things that I will discuss with my clients. Once they figure out what is the true basis for the anger then they can start to work on tempering their reaction to anger. Anger doesn't feel good to either the person on the receiving end, nor to the person who is raging or losing control. No one really likes the feeling of "being-out-of-control" - except addicts. There are many ways of getting your point across without being physical, raging, or insulting. We can work on this together. I believe you will find it beneficial. It is not a typical "Anger Management Class". Just one to one.
