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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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 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.
