I approach anger management as a basic emotional skill. Like all skills, it can be taught and with practice it can be effectively developed in a short time. Some of the specific techniques I may use in teaching anger management are: identifying early signs of anger, breathing exercises, thought stopping, avoiding triggers, and teaching healthy emotional expression of a full range of feelings. I also use a variety of other techniques from cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) to help my clients learn to effectively manage anger. Beyond the behavioral approach to managing anger I sometimes find it useful to explore the sources of the anger.

Are you having trouble keeping your anger in check? This is a common challenge for a lot of people. Anger is what I call an umbrella emotion, which means that it often covers up other emotions that are harder to share with others. It is really useful to take a look at what might be underneath the anger, such as hurt or fear. Anger is a very useful protection, and it might have served a very valuable function for you in the past. However, it is important to take a look and decide if it is useful to you NOW. If your anger is pushing people away, it might be time to learn a new way to express your feelings.

I believe anger is the most misunderstood emotion. Anger is neither good or bad. It's perfectly normal to be angry it's HOW we express our anger that gets us in trouble. Another troublesome issue with anger is dealing with those angry feelings that get trapped inside. Anger turned inward can lead to depression so we have to be careful that we just don't stuff our anger. The good news is that getting our anger under control is easier than we think. There are two primary tools to effectively managing our anger: first is gaining insight into the underlying reasons for our anger, and next is learning effective ways to manage our anger. Do not live with unresolved anger, call today.

Anger is not a bad emotion. Anger out of control is bad. I work with people who struggle with controlling their anger by helping them recognize early warning signs, learn techniques that will help divert their emotions toward healthier outlets, and then allowing them the freedom to come back and revist the event and process it in a way that allows for relational growth and unity. If you are ready to start getting control over your anger issues then give me a call!

Anger itself is not bad, but many of us have not learned how to handle it or channel it in healthy ways. I will work with you to identify the triggers that challenge you and help you come up with a plan of how to talk yourself into a calmer place. Then when you speak, you will feel confident that you are representing yourself in a clear, strong way.

Do you feel irritable and frustrated? Do you rage sometimes and don't know why? When you fight with your partner, parent, or friend does it escalate quickly? Anger can come from a deep part within you that may be bottle up. It is possible to remain cool headed even if your natural go-to is anger. I can teach you effective strategies and skills to help you remain calm and collected in those moments of frustration.

I see anger as a secondary emotion. In order to heal the anger it is important to look beyond anger and search for the primary emotion. Building a trusting therapeutic relationship is very important so you will feel comfortable revealing how you are hurting underneath that angry exterior. Understanding what can trigger you anger is important also. Some education about the brain and how it works is generally helpful in understanding and conquering your anger. I want to show you how you control your emotions. Emotions do not control you!

I'll help you understand the choices you have to manage and express your feelings in constructive ways. You'll become more aware, accepting, and assertive rather than reactive and misunderstood. Anger is a powerful emotion that needs to be expressed like any other emotion. Anger itself isn't bad - in fact, it's a useful signal that something's wrong and we need to take action. However, the way it's expressed can be either helpful or hurtful. Learn to center yourself and be proactive in expressing your anger in a way other people can hear.

All kinds of people struggle with anger: adolescents who feel “out of control,” parents who regret angry behavior toward their kids, former spouse abusers that never want to relapse, veterans with unresolved anger about deployment experiences, people with legal histories due to actions taken in anger. Together, we will work to identify your anger triggers, to provide tools to interrupt your triggers and to help you heal relationships that have been damaged as a result of your anger.

Anger is often a discharge of other emotions one may be experiencing below the surface. Anger can present itself in situations that involve ongoing sadness, worthlessness, hopelessness, adverse life events, chemical imbalances in the brain, persistent low mood, trauma, etc. Getting to the core of anger and identifying any core issues that may be present. Once there is increased awareness one can learn new coping strategies to better manage emotions and the development of anger.
