Anger arises from one's inability to express their true self to their loved ones and their environment. Over a period of time, one feels confined and restricted. This can range from rage to a low grade anger that is consistent from day to day. Learning how to speak one's truth respectfully, and the utilization of assertiveness and boundaries can reduce the buildup of anger over a period of time.

Anger is an emotion, but experiencing anger is usually not the problem. The problem with anger is usually the way it is expressed through inadequate or unhealthy coping behaviors. People can benefit from anger management when they are willing to address the damage their anger has caused them and how it has hurt or interfered in other situations. When one is willing to learn about and practice healthy coping skills when experiencing anger, relationships can begin to function better and great progress can be achieved.

We all experience anger and could benefit from working on more constructive ways to deal with this powerful emotion. I personalize my approach to anger management by working with clients to help them identify situations that may tempt them to express their anger in less than constructive ways. We, then, practice anger management techniques that help clients to better identify the initial feelings of anger in order to address those feelings through prosocial means.

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.

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.

Pain is often what lies buried underneath anger. Anger can be a very effective defense against incurring any further pain or feeling the pain that is already there. Anger can also be a catalyst, helping to motivate us to make a change in our lives. However, when we hold onto anger after its usefulness has expired, (it is no longer constructive)or we are not in control of our anger and as a result we act out in destructive ways, anger is suddenly a huge liability. When we act destructively, and not constructively we are caught in a way of life that does not allow for further growth. Learning new coping skills to help manage anger is an act of courage and the first step toward healing.

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.

Society teaches us to act out most of our deeper feelings in anger, because that is more accepted than expressing rejection, shame, or disappointment. Anger is a result of a more vulnerable emotion and together we can explore what is beneath the angry outbursts. Feeling anger is very normal, what we do with our anger is the important piece. Our work together will use the insight we gain about your specific anger to develop a more constructive way to express it.

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.
