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.

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

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.

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.
