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.

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.

I have worked in the field of Anger Management for at least for 15 years working with couples, individuals, and families. I have worked a lot with the court systems and individuals who are gotten into with the legal system. 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.

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.

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.

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.

Anger Therapist

Dorene Lilley, MA, LLP

Masters Level Psychologist

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.

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 God-given emotion that was given to us to be able to identify things that are not ok and provide the energy needed to make the necessary changes. Unfortunately, we tend to use our anger as a weapon against others rather than a tool to resolve issues. I will work with you to identify what type of anger you struggle with and what triggers it. Together, we will plan a strategy to recognize anger before it gets out of control, diffuse or redirect it, and look for ways to deal with the underlying problem in a way that doesn’t hurt others but deals with the real issue.

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.
