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 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.

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'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.

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.

Most often the key to anger management is developing the ability to tune in to internal feelings sooner. Before blowing up. I can help you do this. Another key component to overcoming destructive anger is developing assertiveness rather than becoming withdrawn or aggressive. I can teach you how to be assertive so you can express yourself in a healthy, non-threatening way.

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.

Anger is a normal human emotion. It becomes a problem when the anger overrides our logical brain and results in unacceptable behaviors. We offer individual counseling to help people better understand their trigger and the effects those triggers have physically on the individual. Self-understanding is only a part of the solution. We will help clients develop skills and techniques to recognize when they are becoming angry and interrupt the momentum before it results in hurtful behaviors.

Anger is something that every human being experiences, and it isn't always bad! I believe that an understanding of what anger is and where it comes from helps us respond to it in healthier ways. It is also essential to learn calming strategies to use when feeling your anger rise. When responded to appropriately, clients often report feeling heard in ways they never have before. I offer home-based therapy, or the more traditional office setting.

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.

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.
