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.

Feeling out of control, frustrated, stressed...impulsively reacting to situations? Anger is a powerful emotion that can either help or hurt us. I believe that if we learn to listen and effectively communicate the underlying emotions (such as our feelings of being trapped, disrespected, pressured or scared), we can enrich our own lives as well as those around us. I can help you build awareness and develop skills that help you speak "for" your anger instead of "from" it. Anger is a universal emotion...and when we learn to express it effectively, we find greater personal health and happiness as well as enriched relationships.

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 becomes a habitual way of responding to frustration and stress in life. It can become particularly harmful for our relationships with others, whether that be in our romantic relationships, in our families, or in the workplace. Unfortunately, our society tends to reinforce aggressive ways of handling relationship difficulties and the general frustrations of life. Expressing impatience, frustration, and anger have become all too common as acceptable modes of handling conflict. Overcoming patterns of anger requires honest self–appraisal and a deep commitment to treating others with respect at all times using more respectful skills of effective assertiveness.

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 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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

I can teach you effective strategies and skills to help you remain calm and collected in those moments of frustration.
