Anger is a part of a person, not the whole person. When working with an angry person, I help them to notice that anger is just one aspect of themselves. We often use Internal Family Systems therapy to help people to have more compassion for themselves, and for their anger. This compassion can unlock a healing experience for a person. I also use a cognitive approach, helping people to notice that their interpretation of events may or may not be correct, and they may be reacting to something in an excessive way. We develop skills for containing reactions until the person is calmer. We also work on skills for avoiding the escalation of many potential situations.

Individuals will develop the ability to understand some of the origins of their anger and how that relates to their acted-out anger behaviors. Strategies will be developed collaboratively in order to intervene early and effectively in appropriately managing the anger. Individuals will also develop skills for appropriate communication of their feelings to those they interact with on a daily basis. Learning to be assertive of themselves without aggression, maintaining respect of others, is a goal of the therapy.

Is your anger causing problems in your life? Let me help! Anger may have become problematic because of an ongoing pattern of suppressing feelings or of keeping things to yourself. It may be coming out in unhealthy ways because of difficulties being assertive or standing up for oneself assertively. Alternately, a lack of skills in managing feelings maybe the source of the problem. Whatever the reasons that you anger has become problematic, I can help. I am easy to talk to, down to earth, non-judgmental, and practical.
