Anger is a very normal emotion, but has to be managed carefully so as not to cause damage to relationships. In working with individuals who have difficulty managing their anger, I help develop strategies to recognize the anger before it "boils over", and find appropriate ways to express the anger and reduce the liklihood of it recurring. Without dealing with the anger, people often develop problems with depression, or express the anger in ways that get themselves in to trouble.

Anger management is a therapeutic approach to help a person learn tools for managing anger, for keeping it under control. My approach is to, along with this, also address what you are is angry about and work to understand and get at the source of the anger. That is, I see anger to a symptom more than the problem itself and therapy helps by you not only to manage your anger by using anger management tools, but more importantly to deal with what you are actually about in the first place and resolve and heal this.

I see lots of angry teenagers. They disrespect parents and teachers, punch holes in walls, say mean things to siblings, refuse to help out around the house, or are surly and sarcastic and make everyone walk on eggshells around them. Anger management works fine if the person wants to manage their anger, but most of the angry teens brought to my office have no interest in managing their anger—they want people to know they're angry because that's the only way they feel their message will be heard. I help these kids find other ways to express themselves, and help parents hear and appreciate the message—even while disagreeing with it—so that the "heat" leaves, allowing for genuine discussion.

Anger management is all about empowering you with new choices. You learn new ways of thinking so you can respond more calmly to life's disappointment and upsets. You learn new ways of acting so you have options available that keep you from dong things you might later regret. You enjoy the benefit of improved relationships, and knowing that you have transformed old patterns to create a life of greater calm and contentment.

The benefit of my approach is that instead of getting angry you will learn how to think and react creatively so you are better able to find a way to prevail in the long run. People and life will sometimes do you in and obstruct you. However, you are rarely at your best when angry. It is your beliefs that lead to your self-defeating feelings of anger. I show how an angry response leads you to have far less leverage than if you felt healthy negative feelings like great annoyance, frustration, displeasure and disappointment. I teach you how to think about injustice, interference, and insult so that you stay in control of your reactions in order to creatively respond and ultimately prevail!

Are you regularly “flying off the handle”? Do you find yourself overreacting to situations and people? Are you confused at peoples’ reactions to you, “just being honest”? Do you feel as if you are always on guard, needing to defend yourself? Without a clue as to from what you are protecting yourself! Would you like to have someone to talk to about this deep gnawing need to protect yourself; someone who will get it; someone to help defuse the time bomb that you often feel deep inside? Contact me so that I can help you figure out what is going on and how to change it; to explore the pain and create healing; to react differently.

If you find yourself angry and irritable at home or in the workplace, I can help. Anger is often the tip of the iceberg. Underneath many angry people are feeling empty or disconnected. I do not provide anger management counseling if you are in an abusive relationship or looking for court approved services. This not my expertise. But if your anger, resentment, and irritable mood toward your partner, family, or children is getting in the way of having healthy positive relationships, I can help. Please first review my private practice info, fees, and location here and on my website. If that seems doable give me a call to see if my counseling services are a good fit for your situation.

Are you struggling with anger and not sure what direction to go? I have always believed in the healing powers of nature. When thinking about opening my private practice, I knew I wanted to incorporate the outdoors into the work I do. WalkinTalkinTherapy was born of this vision. As I continued to research the subject I came across the articles listed below. Researchers and scientist go into detail as to the positive effect the outdoors and physical activity have when combined with talk therapy. Being able to take the counseling session out into nature is one tool we can use to address your struggle.

I often say for women that "anger is sadness' bodyguard." Women who have issues with anger management often have other symptoms under the surface that result in anger that is protective. Conversely, women often have difficulty expressing their anger because it is not often socially acceptable for women to express it. As a result, women are more likely to turn their anger inwards, resulting in symptoms such as eating disorders, substance use disorders, self harm, resentment etc. I work with women to process through their anger by awareness, acceptance and ultimately releasing.

You have all the tools to stop your out-of-control, explosive anger. Afterwards you could picked one, but you did not. Knowing what to do and doing it are very different aspects of anger management. We change your behavior so that choices can be made before “those nasty words”, physical actions or abuse can occur. Hypnosis is short-term giving the angry person, a way of substituting a healthy response for an unhealthy one. Stop anger NOW with a free consultation.

Anger can be toxic - to jobs, relationships, and especially to yourself. Usually beneath the anger are underlying issues of fear, anxiety, hurt, and/or depression. I'll help you identify what the anger is really about, and we'll look at ways to address the underlying issues and teach you how to manage and even eliminate your angry outbursts, by replacing them with more appropriate responses.

If you have become concerned with the way anger is impacting your life, therapy can help. Anger can have lasting impacts on our romantic and social relationships, professional life, and our self-esteem. While it is okay to feel angry sometimes, you may be lacking skills that help you to manage your reactions to it in a healthy and productive way. Anger is an emotion that surfaces when other emotions have been left unattended for too long. We will help you to access and understand the emotions that are causing your anger, learn coping skills, and work towards developing a plan on how to manage uncomfortable feelings in the future.
