Anger management counseling can help to identify stressors and learn the steps to stay calm in the face of anger. The goal is to handle tense situations in more constructive and positive ways by reducing the emotional and physical arousal that anger can cause. It will provide the tools to take back your life and resolve the triggers that result in unplanned anger reactions.

Anger management may be more easily reached than what you think. Often, individuals struggle with anger when they are feeling disrespected and/or when your values/beliefs are being challenged. Just think of our current political climate. What makes you angry about it? I will help you set boundaries and develop skills so that when you do get angry, you will not harm the things (and people) that are important to you.

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.

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.

I currently offer anger management therapy through discussing the cause and source of anger and working through ways to handle anger in a positive way. Anger is a normal, natural reaction. What is important is how we handle our anger and that we handle it in a positive way. Anger can become addicting for some and itis hard to break the cycle. Anger management is difficult, and I can help you get to where you can handle your anger in a positive way.

People need to be aware of what happens in their bodies and how the body can signal anger before someone flies into a rage. Often people are irresponsible with their emotions because, they are unaware of what they are feeling. My guidance is used to learn about feelings and explore childhood trauma, neglect, and abuse that may be creating uncontrolled anger outbursts.

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.

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.

Anger Management therapy is often very structured for me. I use a curriculum to address the following: Anger. (What is it? What triggers anger? What makes it better/worse?) Quick Control of Anger. (Recognizing anger and learning ways to calm your emotions.) Strategies to Manage Anger. (What stops it? What is frustration? What is rumination? Strategies for managing unhealthy rumination.) Relationships. (Communication strategies) Challenging Angry Thoughts and Beliefs. (How our thoughts affect our anger) Challenges to Managing Anger.

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.

I have worked with many clients, mostly men but some women, to help them understand and better manage the frustration and anger in their lives. Sometimes the anger stems from patterns learned in childhood, sometimes it arises from just not knowing how to better manage the frustrations of life. I can work with clients to help them reduce their overactivity and gain not only insight into the problem, but better control and ultimately, better relationships.

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.
