Even what we tend to think of as minor outbursts of anger can be incredibly destructive to relationships (couples, parents-children, among friends, in the work place, even road rage). Anger is generally a secondary emotion, a response to underlying hurt and fear. Anger itself is not bad; it is how we express it than can be very harmful. Jerry knows from personal experience that you can learn how to identify the underlying sources of anger and deal with them in such a way that anger can actually become a friend and can be used for the good of our relationships.

To give a specific example, PTSD tends to generate angry people. If you find yourself going through the work day and suddenly a person says something fairly mundane to you and suddenly you want to dump your coffee on them, you may have been triggered. I love helping clients name their triggers and begin to cope and even heal from their anger triggers.

Sharon enjoys working with individuals of all ages that are experiencing anger issues because she feels her treatment approach is effective. Each clients plan is individualized, however, to address anger she frequently provides a combination of counseling, EMDR, and biofeedback (She offers; EEG biofeedback, Quantum biofeedback, temperature training, relaxation exercises, etc). Biofeedback can have a calming and stabilizing effect. Counseling and EMDR can help individuals process their anger and learn new strategies to cope/deal with anger. If necessary, these therapies can also help clients identify and change negative core beliefs that are at the root of their anger. Call Sharon today!

Anger Management is one of the most common, least understood and least treated difficulties facing families today. Lasting, successful treatment must: 1) provide strategies and tools for the individual to successfully handle anger-triggers in the moment; 2) address the underlying, root causes of the uncontrolled anger. My clients enjoy using the tools needed to successfully manage emotions and respond to situations constructively rather than destructively. Greater peace and confidence comes as they develop the ability to stop before saying or doing something they will regret. Relationships improve dramatically as they trust themselves more and more, and friends and loved ones trust them too.

Anger is good! This may seem contrary to what you've always believed about anger. You've probably spent a lot of time and energy trying to get rid of it. That would be a big mistake. Did you know that God was angry at times? If God was angry, how could it be wrong to feel anger? I propose the issue is not in the emotion itself, but in how we express it. You'll benefit from counseling for anger issues by learning healthy ways to use your anger, becoming more emotionally insightful, and developing skills to become connected deeper relationally.

Our emotions are a significant part of what makes us human. While rage can derail healthy relationships, there is a message to be heard and understood by the distress you are experiencing. I desire to walk alongside you to provide practical strategies towards alleviating emotional tidal waves, as well as hopeful insight into the deeper reasons underlying your distress.

One of the first steps in working with chronic anger and irritability is to rule out factors such as depression or even brain trauma and dementia. Once those factors are ruled out, it is important to look for patterns when anger flareups occur, and to increase awareness of "early warning signs" and retrain the body to respond to symptoms of "flooding" (increased blood pressure, heart rate, etc.) with calming strategies (deep breathing exercises and mindfullness practices). Finally, looking at thoughts and beliefs that contribute to feeling angry can help change the frequency and intensity of anger.

I have never met a person who doesn't have some reason to be angry. But, I have also seen much displaced anger, rage disproportunate to the situation at hand and relationships destroyed due to anger. If your anger is bothering you and getting between you and the people you love, call me today. I have been able to help many people see where their anger may originate and better navigate their emotions, thoughts and behaviors. There is hope for those who call.
