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.

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.

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.

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.
