Anger can become part of your everyday life due to past history, family conflict, work issues, substance use, etc and anger can also affect all of these spheres of your life. With the use of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), mindfulness, play therapy (for children) and solution-focused techniques we will work together to reduce and resolve the reasons for your anger along with learning coping skills for future anger as this is a nature feeling that all humans experience so that you can move forward in life on a more positive path.

One of the main tools I use with people to help them control anger, is mindfulness. Anger is a normal emotion; we all know what it feels like. No one can help how they feel, but they can certainly control what they do with these feelings. Mindfulness is a way to help people understand what is happening for them in the moment. Teaching people to stop and pause, as they become more aware of what is happening for them, is a way to help them make different choices, rather than jumping into the same patterns which have not been useful in their lives. There are other behavioral skills clients can use as well, but it all starts with slowing the process down and awareness of what is happening.

IPG offers a powerful weekly Anger Management group. The goal is to become more aware of the triggers of anger, the effects of aggression and the underlying emotional wounds. Each week members keep a log of situations that trigger them and work through a chapter in our Anger Management workbook. In group, members are invited share insights from their log. Other members respond with their immediate thoughts, feelings and reactions. As we explore the dynamics that unfold in the group, members gain real-time feedback of what activates them and alternative possibilities to their usual reactions. $65/week. Clients must attend all sessions (12) to receive a certificate of completion.

People often come into my office and say that they have no control over their anger, that they just "lost it." I work with my clients to help them understand that they do have control over their anger. I teach them anger management strategies to increase awareness of their feeling states on a regular basis so that they can recognize and address the warning signs before letting the anger build. There are several techniques that clients can use when they recognize the warning signs. My clients and I fill their "toolbox" with as many strategies as possible to calm themselves down and think rationally.

This one requires careful diagnosis. Too many people have come to me claiming to have problems with anger management when in fact it was someone else who had the problem. Sometimes we need to get angry. Sometimes we just need help with how best to express it. And yes, other times we have the harder task of identifying just why you do get angry so much more than others seem to, more than upon calm reflection you realize is warranted. So this kind of work can be over in a few sessions or it can last months. Depends what we find.

I work with anger management for anger that is not physically abusive and not required by the courts. We will look at the root causes - is this a way that you keep others at bay? Are there other ways to cope with anger? Is this an approach to conflict that you learned in your family? We will talk about your thoughts, experiences, and expectations regarding conflicts. I will help you to understand and articulate the cause your anger so that you are less likely to feel out of control.

This is not who you are, or have to be. I know this because you are here. Anger, in and of itself, is not a primary emotion - it is secondary, triggered by a host of other emotions, sometimes long buried. I would like to explore with you in parallel, first your triggers and responses, and second you past. Our responses are learned and can be reconditioned. You can respond differently. Bear in mind, though there may be persons or things affected by your anger, you are my focus, and you deserve to be cared about.

You will learn to create a moment before your anger spikes where you can make a conscious decision to act a different way. You will learn skills to manage growing anger before it becomes too overwhelming to control. You can learn to understand the effects your anger has had on others and work to repair damage that may have been done in the past. You will grow from your challenges and learn a new way of reacting to difficult situations and emotions.

Joan Warren, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Maplewood

I provide anger management for court mandated or voluntary treatment and work with a wide variety of people of all ages and backgrounds. By examining the underlying feelings that are difficult to tolerate and trigger aggressive responses and working on relaxation, mindful behavior and communication patterns, you will see positive results. Anger is a feeling we all experience, but if your behavior causes negative consequences, we will explore your history, your sensitivities and your feelings that need to be understood. There is no shame or blame in my treatment and you will gain control of your behavior and interactions.

Anger can compromise relationships, jeopardize jobs, and put your life at risk. Anger is often a mask for other emotions that may be more painful to deal with such as depression. By helping you understanding the underlying causes of your anger, you can significantly reduce it, learn more effective ways to manage it, and avoid circumstances that trigger it.

Are you feeling out of control? Do you explode at the smallest and inconsequential comments? Are you unhappy with this behavior and are wondering what is going on with you? Therapy can help you uncover the underlying issues and work through them so that you do not have to go from zero to hundred in a few seconds. We can work together to understand the anger and help you have better control over it.

Helping you find wholeness...

Within driving distance of Maplewood

Not being able to control how you act or speak out of anger can be very damaging in some or all of your relationships (parent-child, with a significant other, among friends, even at work). Having uncontrollable anger and feeling angry all the time also does not feel good for the person with those feelings and it's possible to feel regret afterwards for what you have said or done. There is hope, however. Through exploring the anger and practicing techniques that you will learn, you can get to the stage where you can manage your anger (e.g. get angry about the right things and express it appropriately), leading back to a sense of wholeness and peace. Christopher and you can journey there.

Anger is an emotion that every person experiences, and one that is often misunderstood by people. When people have trouble finding ways to effectively channel or express their anger, it can often be useful to do so in therapy. Whether it's finding new behavioral techniques to channel anger and frustration, or exploring the roots of your anger and frustration so that you can gain a deeper understanding of these feelings; I would very much like to help you work through these struggles.
