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.

Anger is a valid emotion just like all other emotions. Unfortunately, in our society we don't have great examples for how to express our anger. Anger is also a secondary emotion, meaning that there are usually other primary feelings such as sadness or fear underneath. I will work with you to understand where your anger is coming from, how to manage it, express it constructively, and heal the wounds that are triggering you so that you don't have to continue causing pain to yourself and others in your life.

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 of 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.

My approach to anger management counseling starts with an exploration of the origins and contributors to your anger. From there, we will identity triggers and warning signs for your anger so that you can be better prepared to address these emotions when they arise. I will teach you several research-based coping strategies so that you can begin to control and diffuse your anger. Life can look a whole lot better once your anger is under control!

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.

In counseling with me, you will critically explore the conditions of your anger, windows of vulnerability, patterns of escalation, personal triggers, choices of expression and suppression, and subconscious motivations. We will examine both the origins and limitations it creates in your life today. Through these experiences, we will develop a series of strategies and tactics to broaden your choices of emotional expression and develop emotional capacity and resilience.

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.

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

The inability to control impulses appears to have come to the forefront of today's media attention. Anger is a secondary emotion so the underlying cause needs to be discovered. Once the cause is discovered, then the therapeutic process can begin by initiating the understanding that the individual does have the power of anger control. There are a number of anger management strategies that can be learned, practiced, and successfully mastered.
