Anger Management counseling is a specialty service in this practice. It is an area where I have had ample experience working with clients. The process typically involves examining the issues surrounding your aggressive behaviors, and previous criminal cases that stemmed from uncontrolled behavior, and then learning how to reframe the events around you that cause you to be angry. Emotional control strategies are taught, as well as the providing or resources to support your counseling work.

Do you find yourself constantly simmering in a low-grade state of frustration, or perhaps suddenly taken over by a deep rage that can feel out of your control? Does the anger seem to help you focus, feel a sense of control or strength, but then leave you isolated and alienated from others? There are important reasons why anger seems to take on a life of its own in you, and uncovering those reasons in a safe and compassionate (and patient) space is an important and freeing process. Finding ways to self-regulate and manage your responses to others while staying with your truth and honoring your emotional and mental experience is also key to the work we will do together.

I tend to believe that impulsive anger comes from earlier places in your life that have been suppressed. You have probably already talked these places but it has been my experience that clients often re-experience these issues through projection on the therapist. Should that occur I seek to create a different outcome for you. My approach to helping you with your anger is simply to meet with you on a weekly basis and create a safe place for you to process these places in your life. At times I may give advice but primarily I seek to give you a place to work out your feelings.

When someone is angry, there's often a belief that something wrong is happening that must be corrected and the way to get someone's attention to correct it is with a loud voice and/or harsh words. Unfortunately, this rarely solves anything and creates barriers to relationships and goals. Dr. Bill Roedel helps clients understand the root causes of their anger, acquire skills to manage the anger and create a plan for approaching the issue, and gain communication and negotiation skills so an agreeable, workable solution can be found. When the anger is grounded in the past, Dr. Roedel helps clients safely express their hurt and find ways to release resentments so they can move forward.

Sometimes we all lose our cool. An annoyance or irritation can mount to a growing frustration--which can then lead to anger--and sometimes explode into rage or violence. Sometimes this is a slow, brewing process...and other times it moves like a speed train to anger explosions. If you or someone you love has lost control in the heat of anger like this, you know how devastating the results can be for you and those around you--sometimes the ones you care most deeply about. At Mill Creek Family Services, we get at the heart of the issues, ideas and behaviors that fuel the anger, and help you build the skills needed to cool the fire and learn more about yourself in the process.

Through anger management therapy, it is possible that your child can rebuild a better self-identity and higher self-value.

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 is all about justice. We get angry when we perceive wrongdoing. Inside we are screaming, “That’s not right! I’m not okay with this!” In these moments, we have become little judges. We take the bench, raise the gavel, and declare moral verdicts. The apostle James describes this well: “What causes fights and quarrels (acts of anger) among you? Don’t they come from your desires that battle within you? You want something but you don’t get… You want something, but you cannot have it.” (James 4:1-2) We are never more of a judge than when we are angry.

Anger is an emotion. Like all emotions, anger can be constructive in out lives, but it can also be destructive. Often times when anger is not controlled it leads to difficulties in relationships, at work, and even difficulties with the law. There are many effective techniques available to help individuals gain more control over their emotions and therefore gain more control over their anger. Even if you have been through programs that address anger in the past that have not been effective, don't hesitate to contact me to see if we can work together and try new, evidence-based techniques that can help you get better control of your anger, and therefore get better control of your life.

Grey Matters International and the work of Kevin J. Fleming, Ph.D approaches issues of anger management in a very humane yet fresh perspective. You see, anger is a normal emotion but it is the valence (intensity) as well as the coupling choice of what one does with this that is the problem. Telling someone to "not" do it or modifying behavior with a trite psychological plan that only breeds a compliant response is not the way to change anger. Brainwave optimization is a new cutting edge technology that allows one to rewire circuitry responsible for reactivity driving the anger.

I work to support the healthy expression of anger. Anger rises when your boundaries are violated in someway, when something tender within you is feeling threatened and wants protection. We explore what your anger is trying to bring to conscious awareness and allow that to rise from its hiding place within you so that it can receive compassion and understanding. Often, through revealing and offering that part of you attention, your relationship to it changes, dissipating much of the need for protection. Most of us have learned the lie that violence, raging is the only expression of anger. Discover your own creative and constructive, rather than destructive, ways to express anger.

It is normal to experience anger and it can often be an effective way to relieve stress. However, if your anger is experienced more often than not, or if it is interfering with having satisfying relationships with others, it may be time to seek some assistance.

Anger is a natural reaction but do you feel your anger leads to emotional dysregulation that affects your relaitonships? I do not judge you based on your anger. I simply provide an empathetic ear to your situation as well as give you context to help you through situations where you may be reacting to your anger. Oftentimes, we get angry in a situation but are unaware or afraid to tap into the primary emotions that stir the anger. Feelings of abandonment, emptiness, fear, and hurt that lie below the secondary emotion of anger can be processed.

Anger can feel so justified, so good, and at times, so over powering that we can lose track of it. However, anger can be constructive or destructive and in therapy we can learn to move our anger from destructive to constructive. There isn't anything inherently wrong with anger, it's all in what we choose to do with it. Anger can actually be a really needed guide in our life, one that you can learn to manage.

We feel anger because we feel that something is not fair, something is not working out the way we thought it should, our boundaries have been crossed, or we feel we have been treated badly, or missed out. Anger can be frustrating if you don't know how to address the underlying issue. I specialize in helping those whose anger is related to social anxiety, isolation, bullying, harassment or lack of important social skills.

So many things in life tell us not to be angry, yet we feel like screaming or hitting. There are endless emotions wrapped up in our anger and there are roots to every emotion. When we begin to unpack all those feelings and find out where they originate in our life, our anger begins to make more sense and we are able to begin to make peace with areas of our life that are excessively anger provoking.
