Anger is an emotion that is common to all people. Many times it is misunderstood as a "bad" emotion, but it is generally the behaviors associated with the emotion of anger that is unhealthy. Anger therapy is designed to help the person understand the root of this "secondary" emotion which is a response to hurt, fear and frustration or for self preservation. The goal is to assist the person in changing unhealthy expressions of anger into ways of responding that allow for achieving personal and relational goals.

Do you feel irritable, overwhelmed, stressed out, or angry? Do people tell you that you have anger problems or need help in managing your stress? If so, then anger management techniques may be helpful. Anger may have nothing to do with your situation. Many times we act in anger when we are stressed out or overwhelmed. Learning a few techniques to help manage your stressors can be beneficial in regulating your emotions, especially anger and stress. In counseling, we can discuss these techniques by identifying your stressors and providing education on how to better control your emotions and behaviors. I promise you, there is hope in changing your emotional reactions to situations.

Anger is just another emotion that humans experience in this journey of life. Sometimes anger is about needing protection from something we may or may not understand - physically, emotionally, spiritually. Oftentimes outward anger is actually a cover or "mask" for underlying issues that need to be looked at, like: fear, frustration, pain, hurt, etc. Learning to process the whole package instead of giving in to the power of our anger, while engaged in the true pain of a situation can be unhealthy to us and our relationships. Learning to key to slowing your process down is powerful and freeing!

You don't have to be a slave to your anger and your impulses. You can take control of your emotions and behaviors with the right skills. To experience emotion is to be human and each emotion serves a very valuable purpose. You can learn like many others to be in control of your emotions instead of being dominated by them. Regardless of how powerful your emotions are you do not have to be powerless to them.

Anger is usually caused by shoulds or demands that you impose upon others. You argue with what is, demanding that what you want is what should be. Anger is truly one of the hardest emotions to shift out of when you're really feeling it strongly. In working with you on your anger, I will start by just listening and trying to understand why you're feeling hurt, betrayed, abandoned, abused, neglected, or deprived in some fashion. Then I will teach you to evaluate what is in your control & what isn't, so we can help you to focus upon what is in your control. In addition, I will teach you appropriate ways to express yourself, and to shift out of demandingness, into stating what you prefer

We best manage our anger when we approach it from two angles. The first is to examine and change our behavior. There is always a predictive pattern to an anger escalation. Once we learn this and understand this path, we can engage it differently and have an improved outcome. Secondly, for longer term relief, we need to examine how we think and how we can begin to see life differently and get our needs met in healthier ways. Healthy anger is simply the slight boost of energy we feel when we engage something that is not right or is unfair (at least to us!). Learning how to deal with the thoughts and feelings around this will give us more tools and better outcomes.

Anger is really a secondary emotion. Often it is driven by intrapsychic feelings of fear, or frustration, or early life trauma that has been repressed below the level of consciousness. When we experience sudden onset of anger that we cannot fully understand or explain, that can be an indicator that counseling could be of some help. Ungrieved loss, unfinished family business, and unregulated emotions can all lead to anger that is out of control and unmerited for the situation. Family Systems counseling can help clients become more differentiated, more mature and more capable of recognizing the difference between feeling and thinking--leading to better relationships and a more joyous life.

That which angers you, controls you. Anger often is a core emotion that can enslave you, cause you to react in ways that you regret and drive away supportive people. Find new ways to cope with anger, frustration and resentment and still feel like yourself. Anger can be expressed in more appropriate ways and can even be used to benefit you in many positive ways - like assertiveness.

Anger in and of itself is not a bad thing. Rather, it’s a normal emotion that all people will experience. However, when you choose to let your anger control you and make poor or rash decisions because of it, it becomes a problem that needs to be acknowledged and dealt with. Anger management is about learning how to express yourself and your emotions without becoming explosive and hurting others, whether emotionally or physically.

Children's Counselor

In 75243 - Nearby to Hickory Creek.

While the children in your life may not be close to the level of anger that has been exhibited in the extreme violence in our nation, our schools are filled with children who are allowing anger to interfere with their full enjoyment of life. Can early intervention prevent future violence or destructive physical, emotional, and social well-being? Yes, I believe we can equip youth with coping skills to make their lives better. Children can learn to manage strong emotions without resorting to violence.
