There is so much to say about anger and its role in our lives. First, we need anger to assist us in knowing when to set limits and establishing safe ground rules with others. Anger lets us know when something is not quite right about a situation or an encounter. But anger can get us into trouble. The destructive elements of anger can cause us to lose jobs, people, and can even make us sick. I and other clinicians in my office work with clients to learn how to identify the elements of their anger and what lies beneath it. We work collaboratively with clients on ways to appropriately express anger, confront effectively, and manage conflict in a healthy and respectful manner.

Anger often comes from deeply held wounds and from the experience of not feeling understood. People go to anger more easily than fear or hurt. Many anger issues are a result of not being heard or understood in childhood which transfers to the present. I help unpack these issues so they may be understood by the client and allow the client to have the xperinec of finally being understood.

I find anger management does not pop up with no rhyme or reason. I like to give my clients tools to express their anger in a positive and safe way to allow them to feel as though they are not repressing any intense emotion. As the client becomes more comfortable in the process, we will be able to examine any past issues the anger may stem from. In order to really resolve anger issues, we will need to target exactly when the problem started, and work through the emotions of that time.
