Has anger overtaken your ability to function effectively in your daily life? Do others shy away from you in fear of your next outburst? Has your relationship with significant others become so volatile that the love is being overshadowed by your anger? It is possible to learn tools and strategies to combat these negative actions and begin to respond more appropriately to situations that previously sent you over the edge.

You may think that you need anger management because you feel angry but you will quickly learn that it is normal and even healthy at times to feel and communicate anger. Anger management is only needed if your behaviors while you are angry are hurtful to yourself or others. In working to manage your anger, we will identify and explore triggers to your anger, body cues that signal that you are feeling angry, and process the thoughts and feelings that contribute to feeling angry. I will encourage you to examine and challenge your thought process and to engage in healthy ways to communicate your anger so that your needs are not neglected and you do not violate the needs of others.
