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.

Anger is an emotion that is strong. Its an emotion expressing that something is not ok. Anger presents its face to necessarily express that you are not ok and/or something is not ok, and change needs to happen. This emotion is valuable. However, there are effective ways of expressing anger; ways which empowers one to make positive change and there are less-than-helpful ways of expressing anger; bringing one farther and farther away from our goal. It is my mission to help you work on your anger to strengthen you in effectively creating a more wholesome, healthy way of interacting with the universe, improving your relationship skills and allowing life to unfold in a safer,smoother fashion.

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.

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.

Anger management is a growing problem in our culture. I utilize both individual and group therapy to help people learn to deal with their own anger and the anger of others. People are often convinced their anger is a good thing, until they lose important relationships or get fired from jobs. The first thing I do is show them the many ways their anger is harming them and others. I use many techniques to do this, including analysis, confrontation, video, role play and practice with constructive communication. In time they learn to express themselves in ways that resolve rather than inflame situations.

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.

In close relationships, we become most vulnerable, open, and dependent. When conflict arises with our partner, we may react with intense anger which escalates as the argument continues. As these scenarios become more frequent, it's important to seek assistance. Meredith works with couples to help them identify triggers for conflict and reduce and mediate arguments. As each partner gains an understanding of the other's needs and desires, it becomes easier to discuss issues at hand without escalating to anger.

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.

Anger becomes a repetitive cycle, like bring on a hamster wheel, but it ultimately sabotages the other areas of our lives. I think of it this way: that when you're in the grips of chronic anger, you're being played rather than being the player, the author, of your own experiences. Played by? Three things: Your past, the object of your anger and physiological habits, in that people's minds will be most comfortable in a certain disposition, in this case, anger. Good things come from finding light in the darkness. In this case, with therapy, in transcending grievances and the mental habit of anger, to see things in a better way and to lift your everyday experience to a more satisfying place.

I have spent many years working with individuals who believe they are "unable to control myself and my anger". One of the best parts of my job as a psychologist is to assist people in recognizing that they are able to change, more than they had ever anticipated. Although each and every individual struggles with anger at some point, it becomes particularly hard to manage when it interferes with work, relationships, or other important areas of functioning. I have found that treatment can be particularly helpful with identifying triggers, finding effective ways of coping with anger, and learning how to express oneself and feel heard. In doing so, I have found great success in this area.

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.
