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.

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.

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!!!

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.

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.

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

Anger is a completely normal and healthy emotion - so the goal of counseling, or more specifically anger management, with me is not centered around getting rid of this feeling or eliminating it. Our work together will focus on how your anger drives you, what it urges you to do and how this causes dysfunction in your life. When anger gets out of control, and becomes a primary focus it can become exhausting and lead to problems.

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.

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.
