Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist #97796

Within driving distance of Sanford

All too often anger moves us to do acts we would almost never do. The basis of anger has been found to be fear. Fear of being out of control, fear of not knowing what to do, fear of an unwanted past coming back. Working with individuals, couples, and families, I help them find the behavioral resources to deal with the fear and thereby reduce the anger. The reduction of the anger through processes learned in our therapy, gives the client the power to control reactions to events. That power is the means to manage any anger, present and in the future.

Anger gets a bad reputation from the way it is misused in our lives. If you have a history of this, you are likely going to be challenged with the effective and necessary use of anger today. It is a natural feeling and a warning sign that someone has stepped on your boundaries or something is unfair. If you were to to get some help separating the feeling of anger from the way you were miss-taught about it from your past, you may have a wonderful tool to assist you in self care. You need to feel the anger to understand that you need some type of protection through assertiveness, silence, removing yourself from a situation or simply staying home instead of giving into the pressure of another.

I recognize that anger is a signal that something is unjust. I help people struggling with anger issues learn to use the energy for positive movement. We all have the right to be angry but we are responsible for what we do with that anger. Sometimes a person needs a non-judgmental listener to help them grow and other times they need specific skills and I do both.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Anger can sometimes help you be assertive in important situations. However, if you consistently express your anger in ways that negatively affect your relationships and self-esteem, you may have an anger management issue. In therapy, clients learn about the underlying reasons for their anger and ways to self-soothe and validate their own experience. With more self-awareness, clients are able to express their feelings with calm, clarity, and greater sensitivity to others. We can work together to feel less on edge, so you are more approachable and experience greater satisfaction in relationships.

Anger is an emotion that typically does not stem from the presenting problem, but rather an unmet need, feeling of vulnerability, or unvalidated emotion. Through a mindfulness approach to the emotion of anger, we can explore the other emotions or past traumas that may trigger an angry response or behavior. You will experience the benefits of therapy as we identify triggering emotions, learn ways to validate your own emotions, assert your needs, and communicate more effectively with others. The results will be improved and more satisfying relationships, reduced tolls of emotional and physical stress, and fewer anger responses.
