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.

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.

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.

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.

If you find yourself in situations where you are overwhelmed by your emotions, please know that there is hope for healing and growth in this area. When working with clients who struggle with anger issues, I provide a safe space for clients to experience their strong emotions while getting in touch with the bodily effect these emotions can have. This can be incredibly helpful in identifying the triggers or warning flags that signal an oncoming emotional burst. Then, once you have gotten to know your own body signals more, we can work on addressing how to diffuse those in a healthy way that still honors your feelings. I would be honored to walk with you through this journey.

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.

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.

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
