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.

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.

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.

What I do often when helping clients with anger management issues is to go back and see what emotional wounds are left unhealed. Sometimes, their are large gaps in the emotional needs that have never properly been met. This is usually where I find the "Real" problem that has turned out to look like an anger problem. Recently over a three week period I helped an adolescent girl resolve a past issue that left her looking oppositional and defiant. Now she is making peace with her mom!!! You can heal too!!!

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.

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.

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 have worked in the field of Anger Management for at least for 15 years working with couples, individuals, and families.

We dig into what individuals have learned from their families of origin and how we can use new tools to have a better way of dealing with life.

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.
