Erupting and lashing out to relieve your pain creates disruption in your everyday life. While anger is a healthy emotion, lashing out and rage creates guilt and relationship destruction. In my 30+ years of clinical practice, I have provided my clients with a non-judgemental safe environment so together we can build a trust where they can be open and honest without embarrassment or shame. In letting down their defenses and acknowledging their behavior my clients learn how to emotionally regulate their pain by taking ownership and removing themselves from the current situation, which gives them space to provide a more regulated and healthy response.

Anger is a healthy and normal emotion; it's how we express our anger that can make it problematic in our relationships. Moreover, anger is considered a secondary emotion. This means, there is a more primary emotion that underlies and fuels our anger. Learning to manage our anger in a more productive, healthy and adaptive fashion will first mean identifying the deeper emotions that often remain outside of our awareness. What might be at the core of your anger....fear? hurt? feelings of helplessness or needing to feel heard by your partner?

I help those who have pent up anger for a great many of reasons. Anger can consume and individual and result in a stressed environment for those who are around someone who has anger issues. I help to encourage the angry person to admit responsibility for the anger, channel the anger in constructive ways, and to support and encourage that a person vent that anger in the right areas of their life. There are usually deep rooted causes for a person to be angry all the time, I take a therapeutic approach to this and dig to the heart of someone's anger issues- instead of just targeting the anger so that the best resolve can be found to help an individual find peace.

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.

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.

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.

Does your anger seem out of control? Is it causing you to regret your actions or the hurt you caused to those around you? Anger is a normal and powerful emotion that everyone experiences. Learning how to express this emotion can be challenging, even when it is justified. However, identifying factors that trigger your anger is an important step in finding the balance and learning how to control your reactions. Together we can develop strategies specific to your triggers and help you find tools which in turn will help you to live a more healthy and productive life.

Anger can present itself when you least expect it. You can be with family and friends at a school or work outing. You can be on a date and your spouse or significant other does something to set you off. I work with individuals and families in identifying those triggers, exploring the origins and the emotional connections and utilizing cognitive behavioral therapy to address the un-healthy and often off-putting interactions.

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.

"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.

My approach to anger management begins with listening and assessing to determine the stressors that trigger the client's anger. I may recommend medication (administered under the supervision of a medical professional). I then tailor a treatment plan to each client using a variety of modalities (including family therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, and solution-oriented therapy) to help them learn how to manage their feelings and avoid the consequences of unmanaged anger.
