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.

Everyone gets angry. It is a normal emotion. The issues comes when the emotional brain overrides our logical brain, and we behave in ways that for which, once we are calm, we are often embarrassed and remorseful. We end up hurting others. I work with clients to identify the triggers to their anger and find out why certain interactions cause such intense emotional response. Our goal is to be able to manage our emotions well enough so that they do not boil over into hurtful and destructive behaviors. I don in-office and online counseling. You can self-register and self-schedule and appointment at mnonlinecounseling.com.

We do not offer "anger management" in the usual sense of the term, but we do offer counseling for people who have feelings of anger. Most often, anger is a masking emotion hiding what is really going on under the surface. In counseling with us, we can begin to uncover and understand where the anger is coming from, and in doing so, begin to heal the wounds that are causing the anger to boil to the surface.

It is interesting that often we find that anger issues stem from early childhood issues. It can come from previous times we felt we were not heard, we were hurt, had negative things happened or were generally in an environment where we were not given a chance to develop a way to deal with anger. The physiological qualities of anger can make it harder to manager. During anger our brain sends signals to our bodies, temporarily, that the situation is life-or-death, and our flight-or-flight mechanism kicks in.

Anger is venom that slowly poisons our body, robbing us of reason and compassion. This type of anger takes away our ability to act with integrity. Yet, there still remains a type of healthy anger; it is one that calls us to action against injustice while allowing for compassion and reason. For those whose anger has spiraled out of control, these two types of anger get confused. We need to begin exploring anger’s triggers, any underlying issues or emotional wounds that have been left to fester and allowed to infect the entire body. For some, learning more effective techniques of managing stress can also be important.

There's no shame in asking for help with anger management. What causes shame is the damage you cause others when your anger spills out onto them. In any healthy relationship, disagreements are to be expected. But decisions need to be discussed and negotiated, not forced or made on the sly. Anger management is about learning how to regulate negative emotions, ask directly for what we need, and tolerate the frustration and disappointment that come with being in relationship with others. If you are struggling to hold it together without blasting people you care about, you need help with anger management.

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.

Anger doesn't have to rule your life. I recognize that people who struggle to manage their expression of anger are hurting. It doesn't feel good or empowering to lose control. I can help you take back the power anger has stolen from you and make the changes you are looking for. I believe that if you're coming to therapy you are ready for change. Let's work together to make it happen.

My program consists of 8 to 12 sessions using the curriculum "What's Good About Anger?" This course of training directs participants in learning to identify triggers, take time to think about consequences rather than to lash out, self-soothing practices, and much more.

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.
