Anger is normal: it is a form of communication and can even be advantageous at times. However, it often masks other underlying emotions (such as shame, fear, low self-worth) and its expression may hurt ourselves and/or those around us. Our work together can identify your specific anger triggers, develop ways to better manage both the emotional and physical components of anger, improve your ability to express yourself assertively v. aggressively, and repair the damage that the prior expression of anger may have caused.

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.

I work with many clients that have Anger Management Issues. Some have reported that they were unable to contain their anger when they were using; some find that anger seems to be a new thing in Recovery. As we explore it more, we often find that there are actually other feelings buried under the anger, and it’s not really anger at all. Other times, it really is anger, and we will work on identifying the Antecedent or Precipitating Behaviors (that which happened before hand) so that newly learned coping skills can be implemented before the anger amplifies to the degree that needs managing. Clients will work on learning effective coping and communication skills.

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.
