"Sticks and stones will break my bones, but your words will break my heart." Many people with anger issues know the damage that can be done to a relationship with even one outburst. Mastering anger is necessary to having the affection and trust of the people we care about. It has been accurately referred to as 'restraint of pen and tongue' in some literature. While it may seem like an effort one undertakes for others, the primary benefits are to the person who handles their anger. If you are reading this, and the thought "I wouldn't get angry if so-and-so didn't do such-and-such" consider yourself a primary candidate for this work. Discovering how to escape from anger will set you free.

Philip Kolba, MA

Psychotherapist

Available for Online Therapy

I provide individual psychotherapy for anger management. Anger is normal emotion that everyone experiences. It becomes a problem when one expresses anger inappropriately or one lacks the proficiency to express any emotions but anger. I use Humanistic and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) to help my clients understand their anger, improve their emotional experience, and express their emotions in healthy ways. A healthy emotional life is the cornerstone of living a full and successful life.

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.

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.

Amy Rosenberg, PsyD

Licensed Psychologist

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.

Many of us learned in life that we're powerless, unable to change the very things that so deeply impact and hurt us, robbing us of happiness and success. It makes us angry, resentful, and full of rage. But you don't have to be a prisoner of that neverending dynamic. Learn to face you hurts, take responsibility for your needs, and tools for healthy, constructive emotional expression that builds relationships.

Anger is a reaction to other intense emotional feelings such as sadness, powerlessness, fear and humiliation. It's a way to protect ourselves, yet when not resolved often leads to isolation and loss of significant relationships. Anger management is not only about learning the skills to keep better control and "manage" these feelings more effectively, but uncovering the core issues that are fueling that anger.

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.

Has someone told you that you are getting way too stressed out about things?I will help you learn to communicate your thoughts without becoming confrontational. Do you even know what your positive traits are anymore? We’ll discuss them and also that anger is more of a secondary emotion to more primary feelings such as fear, guilt, shame, powerlessness, or sadness. Together, we will identify the triggers that upset you, so that you can be more self-aware and develop coping skills. Reducing anger will improve your self-image, patience, interactions with family and career success, while reducing health issues such as headache and backaches.

The inability to manage one's anger can be very problematic when trying to negotiate everyday life. Anger management becomes necessary when you experience loss of control. It is my intention to help clients recognize their anger triggers and the feelings associated in order to process them before it becomes inappropriate. It is of paramount importance for the angry person to recognize how his/her anger effects those around them in order to help them recover.
