Anger is a friend in that it provides us with valuable information about ourselves and our surroundings. It can be understood as our emotional reaction to believing that either we or another have somehow been mistreated. it is most problematic in its expression rather than it its experience. Problematic expressions of anger present in varied forms, from passive forms to expressions of rage. We can learn to promote understanding of the meaning of our anger and the secondary emotions it triggers as well as how to develop alternative coping strategies.

Anger is an important tool in our emotional toolbox. It helps us to determine when things are not as they should be, and the energy of anger can help us take action to change things. When anger gets out of control, however, it can be destructive to relationships and self esteem. I will work with you to identify what triggers your anger and what leads it to spin out of control, then help you to identify ways in which to regain control.

Although the scientific study of anger has received less attention than other emotional problems (e.g., anxiety or depression), there is evidence that some anger management programs are effective in reducing unhealthy anger and improving adaptive coping skills. Unfortunately, the quality of anger management programs is variable. Some are based on solid scientific research; others have not been subjected to study and may rely on unproven or even potentially harmful methods. My approach to Anger Management employs both a cognitive-behavioral and emotion focused approach. Participations’ are assess for their level of anger, review employed strategies for dealing with anger, discuss physiological an....

Anger is part of the human experience. Its purpose is to protect and to defend. However, sometimes the way in which we express our anger (or avoid expressing our anger) can lead to difficulty or pain. How we express our anger can have a profound impact on our social relationships and how we feel about ourselves. There are many ways in which anger manifests itself in a person's life. I begin my work with clients by assessing the nature and origins of their anger. I then utilize emotionally and somatically oriented techniques to support clients to shift to more adaptive means of anger expression.

Anger is probably the most misunderstood emotions and also one of our most valuable tools. Many of us have expereinced anger as abusive, brutal or scary. But don't confuse the feeling of anger with it's expression. The flip side of anger is passion. When we are really anger we are very passionate! We care deeply about something. Regardless of how it looks, anger is always a call for change. If we understand it and use anger to work for us, it never has to become large or mean. Instead it is like an inner advocate working for us with clarity and firmness createing the changes we need. I will work with you to harness your anger and get it working for you rather than against you!

Clients presenting with anger issues have a personal history, family-of-origin history in which anger has been distorted and thus de-legitimated in some way. To be effective, any clinical approach to this emotion must include identifying and deconstructing the foundational components buried and sanitized in the client’s subconscious mind, yet continue, repeatedly to constrain their growth. Effective unravelling of personal history benefits the client in terms of understanding, self-awareness, and self-forgiveness.

Anger and emotions management has long been an area of interest and specialization for me. Dating back to my undergrad I have studied anger as learned behavior, biological predisposition, and unfortunately as an outcome of childhood trauma. Men are taught that if they feel and express genuine emotions that they are whimps, among other pejorative terms. Anger and emotions management iwith me is a gentle supportive experience that coaches clients to experience and express healthy emotions. We will unpack and reframe past toxic behaviors, and experiences and learn healthy assertiveness. It is NOT judgement or contemptuous. Rather it is a supportive personal growth and change proces

I have vast experience and wisdom with regard to the understanding of and in the treating of all aspects of anger, rage and fury. One of the real benefits of a client learning about and facing their anger is that they learn that anger itself is not the culprit. It is a natural and functional emotion. The real problem is what they do with their anger...how they articulate their anger. Many clients come into my practice believing that anger itself is bad. I enable clients to distinguish between "anger at" and "anger with" and "anger about". Clients become aware that anger is about something going on in their own self and not so much about projecting it onto another person.
