If you are reading this, you or someone you know, is showing anger in ways that interfere with daily living, straining relationships, and perhaps in trouble with the law. Anger reaches these levels when someone does not understand why they feel so angry. It happens when someone lacks: coping skills, communication and relationship skills, the ability to see things in other ways (such as putting themselves in someone else's shoes). Anger gets out of control when a person or people cannot find solutions or ways to change the circumstances. Often, what one lacks is an understanding of Self! This is where a lot of self-injury (cutting, burning) and suicidal ideation stems from. Find understanding

You cannot have high self-esteem and be angry at the same time. The lower your self-esteem, the more vulnerable you are to being angry. Showing your anger in reactive ways doesn't communicate what you really are trying to say. We teach clients how to raise their self-esteem and how what angers them is related to something they believe about themselves. We also offer cognitive-behavioral tools to help individuals and couples address, express and feel their anger.

People are often surprised when I tell them anger itself isn't good or bad. Like a hammer, it is a tool that can be used for the good or bad, to build or destroy. Anger alerts us to take inventory of our emotions. What is happening to evoke the anger? Why am I so angry? What is an appropriate way to handle the anger? I will work with you to answer these questions and to develop a plan so that you are managing your anger rather than the anger managing you.

Are you a Christian struggling with anger? Did you know that feeling angry is not a sin? Anger is meant to be like the warning light on our car dashboard letting us know that something is wrong in a relationship. Sometimes, we get too easily angered because our warning signal has become overly sensitive. This can happen in abusive or traumatic childhood situations when there was harsh or unfair punishment. The anger that was originally justified can become a seething resentment and sometimes an unconscious vow to never again feel that same sense of powerlessness and vulnerability. The key to anger management is to resolve the pain of the past, giving you greater freedom and self control.

I am a psychotherapist who understands life can feel like a daily struggle. No one should have to endure these feelings alone. I compassionately listen and support clients as well as offer a therapeutic relationship that provides clients the opportunity to emotionally move forward and bring a healthy balance back into their lives. Counseling empowers clients to gain healthy coping skills, experience self care and process new ways to work through personal difficulties. Understanding feelings behind anger allow clients to feel more relaxed, have increased energy, feel less stressed, become motivated, experience satisfaction in relationships, and cope with difficulties in life easier.

Aristotle famously stated that getting angry was easy, but doing so in the right way, and for the right reasons, and to the right degree was not so easy. To this day, those words are a truth. It is a problem that has yet to be universally solved, but instead, must be done individually, in the course of one's life. However, there are keys and tools and understandings that are universal. Providing these tools is a large part of my work, as I work extensively with men and women struggling with anger problems and domestic violence.

A common misconception is that anger is negative/bad but in reality there is nothing wrong with feeling angry. It is a normal and sometimes necessary emotion. Anger is not the problem, what we do with that anger is the key feature. Out-of-control anger can really hurt yourself and people around you as well as can cause issues in your daily life in school, work and in your personal/professional life.

Anger is destructive to relationships, both in the work place and at home. Many times expressed anger is a form of defensiveness against the hurts of life. In therapy, we will explore your history of anger outbursts, discuss the difference between rage and anger and explore the other 2 major emotions; glad and sad. Resources used include The Anger Workbook by Les Carter and The Lies you Believe and the Truths You Must Believe by C. Thurman. I encourage journaling and role-playing. In order to stop a certain behavior, one needs to learn to replace with healthier behaviors. Patterns of relating and living are explored and help will be offered to change and replace unhealthy anger patterns.

All of us experience anger from time to time. It's normal, commonly experienced emotion. However, anger can be incredibly destructive if we don't know how to control it. If you feel that your anger is really out of control, if it is having an impact on your relationships and on important parts of your life, you might want to consider counseling to learn how to handle it better.

Out-of-control feelings are common when modern day life leaves many people feeling stressed out and overwhelmed. I can help you to understand the roots and triggers of your anger and then help you to cope more effectively when you feel frustration and anger. Anger is the emotion we need to protect ourselves; it’s what we feel when our rights have been violated. However, when not expressed appropriately or if we are out of control with anger, then it often causes our trouble in our relationships. Psychotherapy can help you to cope more effectively and calm your nervous system.

The Lord says, "Be Angry and sin not." Being angry isn't the problem. It's what we do with our anger that is. For many, how they have displayed their anger has created more damage to their relationships than whatever they were originally upset about. I work with many clients struggling with anger, with a goal to not just divert your anger but to dissolve it. All things are possible with God.

Most of us feel anger sometimes. How we experience and express anger determines whether it will present problems. Seeing the phrase "anger management," we think of controlling impulses and avoiding outbursts. Such control is fundamentally important when angry impulses cause us problems. Clients and I practice ways to put some space between feeling and reaction for this purpose. But there is more to managing anger. Sometimes people do not express it, but try to hold it in. Some claim to feel anger rarely, if ever. Anger is a legitimate emotion, and expressing it is important to health. We work together to find ways to express it constructively, not destructively.

Some people act out verbally. Some people act out aggressively. Some people act out in both ways. Some people internalize the anger and eventually experience impulsive outbursts that are inappropriate to the situation and environment in which it occurs. Anger serves as an emotion that is meant to protect us from danger. It helps us to feel powerful and safe. However, it can become dangerous in and of itself if we react to the emotion inappropriately. When we feel angry, we look for ways to release the emotion because it is extremely uncomfortable and overwhelming. When we haven’t learned healthy ways to release or cope with the emotion we do what we have learned works.
