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.

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.

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.

If you are angry, or told you are angry, or respond to situations with attached anger, chances are you need to discover a better way to deal with the issues that are causing this reaction. The process is very basic. You and I engage in dialogue about the underneath issues like anxiety, unhappiness and a host of other concerns that cause anger. In time, you develop the perspective to live a happy, creative and meaningful life. My office is located in Bellevue/Kirkland vicinity. And I work with out of area students via telephone.

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.

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.

My approach will be first to address anger symptoms. Cognitive Behavior Therapy CBT is a way for us to explore the thoughts and feelings that are influencing your behaviors. Once we have a handle on this we can treat the underlying condition, if that is still necessary. Having control of your anger instead of it controlling you can be life changing and open up a new way of relating to yourself and others.

Having provided anger management to individuals and groups both court-ordered and independent, anger is a natural part of being a human, but often can take control of one's self. Through learning about unique triggers, often other material that leads to anger can surface from one's current life or even going back to childhood. Anger can be improved and ultimately shrink back into a manageable size.

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.

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.

Why should you and those who are close to you live under the "Black Cloud" of anger. Although it doesn't feel like it in an angry moment, you do have a choice! Angry thoughts lead to angry feelings and actions. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy teaches you to replace negative thinking with positive thoughts. Shifting you perspective about things can create a huge shift in your moods and actions. I suplement this traditional counseling with complementary methods to accelerate your progress

Anger is a strong emotion, when we express anger we often get discouraged later about how we handled the situation, in the moment we felt justified but that feeling of justification usually decreases as time passes. Anger is a secondary emotion meaning that there is another emotion underneath our expression of anger. The counselors at Charmed Counseling will work with you to identify what your primary emotion most commonly is that is clouded by the expression of anger. Once you learn how to connect with your primary emotion you will be able to express yourself effectively towards others and feel good about your interactions. We want to help guide you in this exploration, please reach out.

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.

Anger is a necessary and commonly experienced emotion that assists and motivates us to take action. However, anger can also be very damaging in relationships when the anger is driving choices and behaviors which are not focused and appropriate to the cause of the anger. Anger also seems to work best when it is just a part of a full spectrum of experienced emotions. I help people both recognize, manage and understand their anger, and then work together to identify the sources of anger, and address those sources so that the anger is no longer needed.
