Managing our frustrations, irritations, upsets, and angry communication is a major challenge for men and women, children, and teens. Women’s anger is often sublimated as anxiety and incorrectly treated as such. I am interested in helping empower people to work through their anger and transform it into emotional strength. After working through anger issues, clients often report unexpected benefits, including more fulfilling relationships and financial success. Once the anger is overcome and clients develop skills to cope with everyday annoyances, they find themselves able to reach goals that had been thus far unattainable.

This is an area that is vital to understand and know how to manage in order to have a healthy, compatible relationship. Not knowing how to reduce anger and handle it can sabotage a couple’s ability to communicate and get along on many levels. Anger unchecked, can destroy relationships and sometimes lead to violence. Over the years I have developed many techniques to help people reduce their anger, and have taught them how to communicate with their partner effectively.

At times, we all express anger – it is a normal human emotion. It’s when we are constantly feeling angry, blowing up at loved ones or saying hurtful things, where we should proactively learn what is at the route of our anger. It is common for us to try “to get over something” when we are not “over it”, leaving things unsettled right below the surface. Many times what is beneath that anger is sadness, fear, and hurt. I help people identify and learn what is the source of their anger and how to genuinely express themselves from the heart. If you have been engaging in physically abusive/aggressive behavior, please seek help from a Family Violence Intervention Program.

At times anger can be a helpful emotion acting as a catalyst to improve or change a negative situation. However, if anger becomes unmanageable or explosive it can lead to relationship, family or employment problems. Depression, anger and anxiety are connected and may occur together. My approach: I utilize mindfulness skills that can help you manage unmet expectations, or daily hassles that may trigger anger. I will help you observe and let go of anger, rather than act on it. I will also work with you to alter thinking patterns that may magnify anger. Lastly, it is helpful to understand underlying factors that contribute to anger prone behavior

Anger is an emotion that often viewed as an emotion to avoid or suppress. In my view, however, anger -- just like other emotion -- serves as an indicator as to how we really feel about a person or situation. In working with clients on anger-issues I encourage -- not the suppression of anger -- but rather the appropriate expression of it. The goal is to help clients own and feel their own anger and to use it in ways that helps advance their understanding of themselves and those who mean the most to them.

I can help you learn how to manage your anger. Often anger is covering deeper feelings such as heartbreak, helplessness and loneliness. I can teach you a three-step anger process that can help you take personal responsibility for your angry feelings and learn what feelings you may be avoiding with your anger and, how you might be using anger to try to control others. Also how to know if you are really angry at yourself for maybe not setting a healthy boundary with someone and instead project your anger onto others.
