One of my favorite play therapy activities for managing anger is "The Angry Kleenex Game." It's a popular favorite of children, teens and adults, involving the use of paper, colored pencils and wet Kleenex. I can't wait to share it with you! We also teach clients core DBT skills of Emotion Regulation and Interpersonal Effectiveness, helping clients to focus on the big picture.

Anger is an extremely important emotion. There's nothing wrong with feeling angry, it's what we do with our anger that gets us in trouble. If you are angry that is a sign of distress. You aren't angry without a reason. I would like to be able to help you understand those reasons and find a place for your anger. I will help you to gain insight into the reasons you are angry and find healthy ways in which to communicate and manage your anger so that it doesn't keep you from the relationships that you desire or interfere and disrupt your life.

The goal of anger management is to reduce both your emotional feelings and the physiological arousal that anger causes. You can't get rid of, or avoid, the things or the people that enrage you, nor can you change them, but you can learn to control your reactions. Together, we can identify your triggers and help you develop more effective coping skills to manage your anger.

Anger can overwhelm and destroy relationships. It is not always clear what the anger is about. I create a safe, confidential and supportive environment for client's to address and resolve their anger. I teach client's the skills to identify the source of their anger, communicate their feelings more appropriately, and create more harmony and happiness in their life and relationships. I utilize CBT techniques to help clients change the way they approach situations, how they perceive conflict and develop more effective conflict resolution and communication skills.

For some people, anger is an emotion that is easier to express, compared to worry, fear, anxiety, sadness, depression, etc. However, lashing out verbally and/or physically, to others and/or property creates another layer of issues. This can result in problems with the law, failed marriages, lost jobs, etc. Recognizing the emotions underling the anger, and feeding into the anger, is an essential piece in mental health recovery. Individual therapy builds insight into our complex emotions, helps us cope with the sources and triggers of these emotions, and rebuilds from the consequences of our past choices.

Anger really isn't the problem. It's the symptom. If you deal with the problem, the anger goes away; at least in it's destructive form. We all have anger. How much, what we hope to accomplish, and the harm it does is the real problem. Anger is either about hurt or fear. It reveals a threat to us, even in hurt. There is an underlying paradigm that we will shift to deal with it.

Anger is a natural human emotion, although a tricky one. Anger is often unknowingly a defense against a deeper emotion, such as hurt, pain, grief, etc. Anger serves as a great disguise for these other emotions and often will remain unresolved and will continue to cause trouble in everyday life until the deeper emotions are addressed. Anger doesn't have to control your life any longer, let's work through this together.

Is your anger causing difficult consequences in your life? Many therapists can assist with its management, but I would like to also help with exploring the reason your anger gets bigger than others. Anger says "we are being violated", so what is this sense of violation. Does it spring from some situation from the past? Your anger is real, and makes sense in the context of your life experience. It is your "normal." Together we may be able to create a new normal. A personal message to men; you guys can do this too, and real strength comes from being able to accept help when we need it. Do this for yourself, do this for those you love, and never want to unintentionally hurt again.
