Anger is a very complex and yet common emotion. What is sad about anger is that it hurts everyone and becomes part of the pattern of interaction that couples/families get stuck on. My goal in therapy is to uncover the emotions that underlie anger helping the individual give a different meaning to his/her experiences and ease the anger. In this process, the partner and/or family members can understand more about what causes this anger and a new connection is created leading to new relational patterns based on closeness and connection.

What's fueling your fire? Life Practice provides a means to discovering just that and a way to bank the fires of anger and rage. What kind of experience would you have if that power was forged into tools that worked for you rather than against you? When the heat flares, destruction often follows leaving a mess to clean up. Allow us to aid in the clean up and assist you to bring forth a phoenix from the ashes.

As a member of the National Anger Management Association and trained in techniques for dealing with anger management, I work with men and women to identify the source of the anger and provide training and counseling for dealing with anger in healthier ways. In addition, I will work with couples that are looking to identify strategies that address conflict through conflict/dispute resolution.

Some of the latest studies suggest that the root issue for those experiencing anger issues stem from a sense of self shame. I received training as an Anger Management Specialist I and am trained to work with individuals either through a 12 session course or a combination of coursework and individual therapy. I've found the latter to be very effective in helping people understand their anger response and develop other resources and outlets to manage that powerful emotion

I often describe anger as an "iceberg" emotion: it's what we see, but often it simply masks feelings and beliefs underneath. My clients have voiced a sense of relief when they realize there are more manageable emotions underneath the anger and we work together to create new skills to manage anger in a healthy way. I commonly work with this issue in the child and adolescent populations.

I provide individual psychotherapy for anger management. Anger is normal emotion that everyone experiences. It becomes a problem when one expresses anger inappropriately or one lacks the proficiency to express any emotions but anger. I use Humanistic and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) to help my clients understand their anger, improve their emotional experience, and express their emotions in healthy ways. A healthy emotional life is the cornerstone of living a full and successful life.

Anger can be terrifying for everyone. Often we have not learned skills on how to handle anger appropriately and in a healthy manner. Anger itself is not a bad emotion, it is how we choose to use it that can cause problems. Sometimes when we react by yelling or shouting we may be perceiving a threat that is not there. When working with clients I help find out the triggers and emotions that bring out the anger and find better ways to express the anger. These skills can help everyone!

Recognizing that you have a problem and that you need help is a positive step towards change. People with anger issues will often state that they have triggers. In our work together, we will identify what those triggers are, what to do when you are exposed to the trigger, healthy communication skills, healthy boundaries, and healthy relationships. As your therapist, I will walk by your side and help you identify when your thoughts do not reach logical conclusions. We will work together on re-framing how to respond to situations, learn how to relax and stay calm during situations that may be triggering. My approach is non-judgmental, warm and compassionate.

Anger is a secondary emotion meaning arising when people experience an escalating series of intensifying emotions and with that intensification, feel out of control. To feel back in control, they "act out" by (in no particular order) shout, yell, swear, verbally abuse, break things, drive recklessly, threaten others, and generally drive everyone away from them over time. I teach people to honor their emotions and learn to catch the first inklings of impatience, frustrations, or whatever emotion becomes so uncomfortable for them that they flair. A desire to rid themselves of this potentially sociopathic behavior plus a curiosity to proactively observe themselves is necessary for progress.

Anger management counseling can help to identify stressors and learn the steps to stay calm in the face of anger. The goal is to handle tense situations in more constructive and positive ways by reducing the emotional and physical arousal that anger can cause. It will provide the tools to take back your life and resolve the triggers that result in unplanned anger reactions.

Anger can cause job loss, loss of friends, and loss of family. An angry individual may nag, bicker, fume, rant, fight, or just bang objects about. You feel angry in response to being hurt or threatened in some way. A boundary that you put in place is perceived as being crossed. How you act upon that anger or express that felt anger is where problems may appear. It is time to seek help when you feel you are out of control or others are asking you to change how you respond. Anger can be managed along with that internal agitation being lessened through learning relaxation skills, discovering the source of the anger, and working on more effective means to deal with those feelings.

Anger is secondary to the hurts underneath; it is a symptom of past and current hurts causing the response. I work to help implement changes the client can make in their awareness and approach and concurrently, to help them understand and heal, remove their aloneness, recognize and meet needs and to care for the pain that is underlying. I help them take responsibility and to know they can heal and make changes.
