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 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.

Some times our emotions get the best of us, however every argument is a golden opportunity in our relationship to learn and possibly create an intimate connection, it is all up to how we respond. I help individuals and couples learn how to monitor and control their anger, allowing them to take full advantage of these opportunities. It is not how many fights or arguments that we have, but how we resolve and work through these difficult times that is the most important.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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. I can help you identify what is causing your anger and help you learning coping skills that will be more beneficial than 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.

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.

Anger is often the result of feeling powerless. It can also be the result of not having well defined boundaries or the inability to effectively convey one's boundaries to others. The majority of my clients with anger issues have never experienced the healthy middle ground of assertiveness. Many experience the other two ends of the spectrum which are passivity or extreme anger. Becoming aware of one's feelings and one's boundaries is the first step toward managing and understanding anger.

No matter what stage your child is in, I am here to facilitate you and your child to overcome the uncontrollable emotions. Through anger management therapy, it is possible that your child can rebuild a better self-identity and higher self-value.

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.
