Anger issues can become overwhelming to both you and those who experience it with you. Simply put, anger can simply be a struggle to allow the grief and anxiety of life to run it's course through the redeeming work of God. This is why, although it can seem too much to control, it's not too much for God. The most helpful way I've found in making progress with anger issues is moving clients to a place of not only being open and honest about the struggle, but also beginning to accept it for what it is and finding comfort and control in that place of acceptance. It's then through a heart of confession and reorientation to what is so angering, that true and fruitful healing can begin to occur.

Anger is an extremely important emotion. There's nothing wrong with feeling angry, it's what we do with our anger that gets us in trouble. If you are angry that is a sign of distress. You aren't angry without a reason. I would like to be able to help you understand those reasons and find a place for your anger. I will help you to gain insight into the reasons you are angry and find healthy ways in which to communicate and manage your anger so that it doesn't keep you from the relationships that you desire or interfere and disrupt your life.

Is your anger causing difficult consequences in your life? Many therapists can assist with its management, but I would like to also help with exploring the reason your anger gets bigger than others. Anger says "we are being violated", so what is this sense of violation. Does it spring from some situation from the past? Your anger is real, and makes sense in the context of your life experience. It is your "normal." Together we may be able to create a new normal. A personal message to men; you guys can do this too, and real strength comes from being able to accept help when we need it. Do this for yourself, do this for those you love, and never want to unintentionally hurt again.

One of my favorite play therapy activities for managing anger is "The Angry Kleenex Game." It's a popular favorite of children, teens and adults, involving the use of paper, colored pencils and wet Kleenex. I can't wait to share it with you! We also teach clients core DBT skills of Emotion Regulation and Interpersonal Effectiveness, helping clients to focus on the big picture.

For some people, anger is an emotion that is easier to express, compared to worry, fear, anxiety, sadness, depression, etc. However, lashing out verbally and/or physically, to others and/or property creates another layer of issues. This can result in problems with the law, failed marriages, lost jobs, etc. Recognizing the emotions underling the anger, and feeding into the anger, is an essential piece in mental health recovery. Individual therapy builds insight into our complex emotions, helps us cope with the sources and triggers of these emotions, and rebuilds from the consequences of our past choices.
