I use three basic strategies to treat anger: Relaxation. I use a technique called “progressive relaxation.” We will work together on this technique until you are able to relax. We then will apply this technique to a particular situation that triggers your anger. After you have learned progressive relaxation we will use this in a sequence over and over again until you are able to relax on their own. Cognitive therapy, will helps you find alternative ways of thinking about and reacting to anger. Skill development, is another helpful resource and can help you to learn new behaviors. According to researchers a combination of all three approaches

We all know what anger is, and we've all felt it: whether as a fleeting annoyance or as full-fledged rage. Anger is a completely normal, usually healthy, human emotion. But when it gets out of control and turns destructive, it can lead to problems—problems at work, in your personal relationships, and in the overall quality of your life. And it can make you feel as though you're at the mercy of an unpredictable and powerful emotion. If you feel that your anger is really out of control, if it is having an impact on your relationships and on important parts of your life, you might consider counseling to learn how to handle it better.

Becoming angry or irritated about a situation is a natural emotion. Sometimes our anger gets out of control and holds us back from completely engaging with family and friends or getting that next promotion. I will work with you to identify triggers, situations, and unresolved pain that create distress in your life. Teach you how to acknowledge and use that energy positively. Help you develop strategies to keep you in control during upsetting situations. Call, email, or text me today.

While some believe that anger is never valid, I believe that clients with anger issues need to address whether responses of anger are the "best" response to the situation. Through counseling, it is these kinds of insights that help people become aware of exactly what they are feeling and learn, most of the time, better ways of dealing with those emotions. That being said, anger that is the result of addictions to drugs or alcohol need to be, first of all, dealt with in an addictions setting. Without addressing the addiction first, progress may be held back or altogether halted.

Anger and it's triggers are plentiful. Tempering and controlling strong emotion such as this can be extremely difficult, especially if you add in life's frustration, sadness, and other emotions. My approach is to help the patient to release some of these emotions while processing where they might be coming from. Once this insight is gained certain techniques can be taught and used to deal with them on a daily basis as a daily practice.

Anger management counseling can help to identify stressors and learn the steps to stay calm in the face of anger. The goal is to handle tense situations in more constructive and positive ways by reducing the emotional and physical arousal that anger can cause. It will provide the tools to take back your life and resolve the triggers that result in unplanned anger reactions.

My approach to anger management is comprehensive. I help you build skills to “manage” your anger; but ultimately this does not get to the source of the issue, which means that you will constantly have to cope with anger as it repeatedly surfaces in your life. My approach focuses on getting at the source of what you are truly angry about, which typically is linked to past traumatic experiences. Processing these experiences with the powerful, yet gentle, trauma processing techniques that I use, can get at the root of your anger issues. My approach also includes building new skills to help avert anger-provoking situations.

Like all emotions, anger has to be clearly identified. Once identified, we begin to work on strategies that reduce and/or eliminate the sometimes explosive outcomes of anger being released. Safety for you and others is of paramount importance, so there is no judgement as to why it happens. We work on desirable and obtainable cognitive and emotional behaviors that will allow you to move forward in a positive direction.

Do you find it difficult to keep from getting angry over something that seems later to be fairly trivial? I can help you unlock your reactions and gain more skill in controlling the emotional temperature to keep it within tolerable limits, so that you have a stronger sense of choice about how to respond to a stressful situation. I will help you to learn to respond rather than to automatically react when things get challenging.

Anger issues impact quality of life and can hinder healthy relationships. Anger is not an inherently destructive emotion if expressed and channeled adaptively. Anger can be healthy if it is used to motivate a person to assertive expression of needs, boundaries, and feelings. In cases of maladaptive anger, angry feelings are unmodulated, overly intense, poorly controlled, and/or used to hurt, control, intimidate, or coerce others. Anger is often an indication of trauma, helplessness, underlying depression, or other area of vulnerability that can be explored, processed, and worked through to allow the individual choice for healthy expression and assertion of emotions and needs.

Anger is a powerful, intense emotion that needs to be expressed. However, many people need to learn how to regulate their anger because they hurt other people and themselves. I help people break down their anger into "smaller" parts in order to better understand where their anger is coming from. I use cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness, and spirituality to bring calm and focus to people who feel out of control.
