Issues with controlling anger have to do with impulse control. This is an issue of development, and suggests that those people who can't control their anger haven't successfully negotiated frustration tolerance early in life. Often, this failure has to do with difficulties that parents themselves had with the issue, as well as parental inadequacies with regard to tenderness and soothing, major ingredients that help establish emotional security and self esteem. I will help you explore the "red zones," the places your brain goes to when life issues trigger you to behave reflexively rather than thoughtfully, and to visualize consequences before taking action. www.ThriveTherapydoc.com

Anger is neither a good emotion nor is it a bad one. It is sending a message saying to you that a situation (or a person) is unfair, unjust, disrespectful or threatening. It is normal to be angry when you’ve been mistreated or wronged. However, it becomes a problem when you let anger out in a way that harms yourself or others. If you feel like your anger is out of your hands and there is little you can do to control it, I provide the help you need to gain control over your anger. During our work, we explore the roots of your anger, and you learn new ways to communicate your feelings and thoughts without hurting yourself or others.

What if you didn't have an anger problem? Are you holding back and constantly giving? You do this so much that you finally can't take it anymore and you explode. If that described you I can help. Too often people think that their anger is out of control when it isn't true. What is happening is you hold back on small irritations until it builds up. I can show you how to recognize this and stop before you explode.

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.

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.

Anger is a natural and normal use of emotion that helps you get in touch with that which you are feeling. The problem is that most people don't express their anger and let it build up. Then they express themselves through rages, screaming and just being out of control. Relationships become compromised and resentment and bitterness grows. To stop the pattern, you need to first learn to relax your mind and body. Second, you need to identify what is making you angry. Third, role play expressing your feelings in a positive manner. Fourth, learn to listen other's responses to your statements. Fifth, negotiate with calm to resolve the situation. Relax, think, before you respond.

If you or your child have difficulties with anger, you know how devastating it can be to relationships, friendships, work and school life. Most people with anger issues, are otherwise good people, who are embarrassed and ashamed of the way they erupt! Why do nice people end up with anger problems? Often temper issues are related to other difficulties like impulse control issues stemming from ADHD, low self-esteem, poor modeling in their own families, childhood trauma, depression, or anxiety. I believe in a comprehensive approach which aims to change anger responses, as well as identify and address the underlying issues.

Do you find you have difficulty managing outbursts of anger? Or are you more prone to bottling your anger and sitting on it for hours or weeks on end allowing it to fester? Both of these are common responses to anger, and neither are beneficial. Anger management therapy can benefit you by helping you to learn that you can control the way in which you respond to your anger. Through exploring the underlying reasons for your anger you will gain useful knowledge to help you recognize your triggers. Furthermore, through mindfulness and cognitive behavioral approaches you will learn to channel your anger in a more productive way.

Anger Management is a specialty of our center. Research indicates that anger problems can be made worse by therapists practicing ineffective techniques. So you wan to be sure your clinician is practicing the right form of anger management. The good news is there is also plenty of scientific support to show that effective anger management can reduce anger symptoms in as few as 12-20 sessions. In fact, a study published by one of our staff members indicated that in addition to anger being reduced, but depression symptoms decreased as well. If you, or a loved one, suffer from anger problems, please call us with any questions you may have. We understand how far reaching these issues can be.

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.

Anger is a completely normal, usually healthy, human emotion. But when it gets out of control and turns destructive, it can lead to problems at work, in relationships and in the overall quality of your life. But you don’t have to feel helpless in the face of an unpredictable and destructive force in your life. I work to help you heal the root cause of your anger. You’ll find understanding and compassion for the pain in yourself and your healing can begin. With healing comes understanding and compassion for others, and the return of the sense of control and calm in your life.
