Many people with anger problems have a hard time seeing that it is their ideas and beliefs that are causing their anger. There are always going to be people and situations that do not live up to your expectations and values. Learning to resolve such conflicts without hating or hurting or humiliating others can be found in anger management treatment. Controlling immediate impulses and considering the consequences of actions is another effective method. These techniques take practice to learn and the fundamentals can be taught by me. I can guide you through a customized treatment plan to address your specific areas of need.

On a scale of 0-10 when you are at a 4, 5 or 6 you are angry, when you are at an 8, 9 or 10 you are in a rage. Rage occurs when one upsetting event piles onto another and another, and you never have time to fully heal from any of them. Rage comes up quicker, builds stronger and lasts longer; you say and do things that you would never imagine at any other time. You see red and don’t care about your reputation, the future, the consequences or what effect it is having on your family or career. We focus on helping you to fully resolve your rage at it's root so that you can start having just normal anger - that gets your point across but doesn't do damage - like everybody else.

I work with the client in regards to current anger, past history of anger, and family history of anger. I work with the client to identify current stress, and to especially identify emotions including sadness, fear, confusion, and to identify coping skills to either work with family members, a boss, or co-workers. I feel that improving communication skills, problem solving skills, and developing a strong support network are vital to better understand and work regarding anger in a healthy, non-threatening way.
