I do not help clients to "manage" anger. I help them to understand its source and to use it productively rather than destructively. Sometimes it covers up some other feelings that need to be dealt with, and sometimes it is simply directed at the wrong person. By coming to understand your anger better you keep it from making problems and use it to find solutions.

Living with anger management can cause difficulties in many aspects of a person's world. Personal, professional and community relationships are at risk if one struggles with anger issues. Tools to reduce anger management involve exploring the root of the anger and dissecting it to discern when, how and why certain anger triggers are activated. Once identifying triggers, we work on how the client can learn to channel the anger into a more productive direction be it via physical activity or other appropriate energy releases. There can also be a focus on mindfulness and meditation to help with the overwhelming anger impulses.

Uncontrollable anger, a bad temper and aggression can lead to significant relationship and career failures. Identifying the triggers that cause one to become upset and learning more adaptive strategies and solutions are the essential ingredients for change. Cognitive restructuring, problem solving, improving communication and relaxation strategies are but a few approaches used in anger management treatment. Working with partners, spouses or family members is also beneficial. At times, medication may be warranted in conjunction with therapy or counseling. We at Ashburn Psychological Services are here to help.

We all experience anger in our lives. I help clients develop healthy ways to experience and express their anger by: • Identifying effective ways to handle anger and express feelings; • Understanding how feelings such as fear, pride and inferiority feed anger; • Transforming negative patterns of thinking, relating and behaving that influence anger; • Learning ways to communicate, resolve conflicts and meet needs successfully; and • Developing a healthy lifestyle that supports a successful life. The constructive use of anger, assertiveness, helps express and preserve our needs, worth, and convictions while considering and respecting the needs and feelings of others.

Anger is a human emotion, and everyone experiences it. The problem comes when we act on our anger in an inappropriate or unhealthy way. My work involves helping clients to identify and change thoughts and behaviors that contribute to their anger and to find more positive ways of expressing anger. We explore relaxation and stress relieving techniques to help the client manage stress. We also may explore underlying emotions and feelings and work on healing any emotional wounds. If the client is in a relationship, I will work with the couple to help them connect and change the dynamics in their relationship that contribute to the anger.

I have nearly 20 years experience running anger management groups and working with individuals and couples on this issue. Anger is aggressive. The aggression of anger protects us by pushing away and hurting others before they hurt us. As a result, anger problems always created damage our lives and emotional distance from those we care about. You will learn to manage your feelings in ways that undo the damage your anger has caused. Your life will function in healthier ways, without the chaos your anger has caused. And you will move closer to the people who matter, rather than dealing with the fallout and distance your anger has caused. Both you and those close to you will benefit greatly.

Anger is a natural response to hurt and fear but it can cause more pain in our lives if we use it to hurt others, physically or emotionally. Anger that is destructive, usually comes from an old hurt that we are carrying within us. This hurt has been painfully touched by circumstances or by the actions of someone else. First we need to learn ways to stop our hurtful actions by taking a break or walking away. Then, however, we need to turn our attention to the underlying hurt and to bring compassion and care to our own hurt self. You will find that at the same time, you become more compassionate toward other people.
