Anger can be a form of emotional poison. I help clients understand the sources of their anger and find more appropriate ways to channel their feelings. Anger can be transformed into a new range of insights and feelings. I also teach stress management techniques so that the client lives from a place of calm rather than chronic anger. With practice, clients will create new neural pathways of peacefulness.

Anger is not necessarily bad. It is the instinctual response of being interrupted in the pursuit of a goal. We all need that upsurge of energy to push back when we feel we are pushed or deprived or hurt. But because anger is a very powerful emotional expression it can be hurtful to others or scary or dangerous. Therefore we need to be able to manage our anger in a productive and problem solving way rather than making things worse or even abusive to others. My approach in working with you is to explore your individual situation and offer tools to help you understand your anger and learn to manage it effectively.

There are anger management classes to be found here in Southern NH, and I can refer you to psychologists and counselors in Manchester as well as Nashua. I do not provide classes in my practice. I provide individual counseling tailored to your needs and circumstances. One-on-one, we work to understand the complex patterns of thoughts, feelings and behaviors that constitute anger. Typically this means exploring in considerable detail the situations where you experience anger, your perceptions, the automatic thought processes and recurring themes, and the habitual behavioral reactions that result ... and the feedback loops, so to speak, that can maintain these difficulties over many years.

One of the most effective ways to help a person "manage their anger" is to understand what they are trying to communicate through this very powerful emotion. I have found the original meaning, from the Old Norse word "angr" to be very illuminating because it translates as "to grieve." When I think of anger from this perspective, I don't see it so much as a behavior as I do has a response to a deeply felt wound that hasn't been given the opportunity to heal. At the same time, I expect the people I work with individually or in groups to hold themselves accountable, "manage" the destructive potential of this emotion, and become compassionate stewards of themselves and the safety of others.
