I have worked with clients suffering from anger management in a variety of clinical settings and with a wide range of clients from various gender, age groups and backgrounds. My approach with anger management is to join with client in a non-judgmental environment and discuss precipitating events and triggers that cause an influx of emotions and then process and develop coping skills specific to each individual client.

Anger is said to be a secondary emotion and yet it is so prevalent in many of our lives. People struggling with Anger and the havoc that it causes in ones life can be destructive to an individual or family system. Individuals will look at the differences between rational and irrational thought. Identify for themselves what happens to their body that sends the message they are angry before doing something they regret. They will learn different coping strategies to manage the intensity of their emotions so that anger no longer rules their life.

I have over a decade of experience working with people who had anger issues. I find that the Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) model of therapy to be highly effective at helping people to overcome their anger. Also, meditation can be tremendously helpful to some people, and I can help teach people Yan Xin Qigong, which I learned when I did my 1st degree at UCONN. I also like to consider family and relationship issues, which sometimes benefit very well from my marriage and family therapy training. I welcome people to contact me if they want to see me or get a referral. (Please check with your insurance for coverage of anger management, as some don't cover it, or not when court ordered).

Because "lashing out" or difficulty managing anger can happen for many reasons, I tailor my approach to each person. I first try to understand why it is happening, and treat the underlying reasons. Some people have powerful emotions and need skills to manage them, others have a traumatic past that needs exploration, while others may have anxiety or depression and may feel extremely irritable, thus "snapping" at their loved ones.
