Anger only is the 'top of the volcano'. What I really find important for my clients is to understand the underlying issues and emotions that fuel the volcano. I am approaching anger management from three angles: 1) Anger is a strong physical reaction and I consider it essential for my clients to learn relaxation practices to stay in touch with their calm. 2)Anger is fueled by destructive and often self-destructive thoughts and I believe that it is very helpful for clients to be able to identify and shift these thoughts. 3) Anger is defensive emotion and it is essential for clients to gain access to their deeper emotions in order to self-soothe.

Let’s face it, life can often be quite frustrating!! With so much going on every day, the sources of anger are endless, (a difficult boss, bills you can’t pay or disagreeing with your spouse yet again). Everyone expresses anger in their own way. If you are like a lot of people, you bottle up your anger and then something happens that to others seems like no big deal but to you it is just the “tip of the iceberg”. Before you know it, you are saying things you don’t mean and can never take back. In therapy, we can work together to help you learn to recognize what sets you off, how to best deal with it and how to say what you feel without hurting the ones you love the most!

You have all the tools to stop your out-of-control, explosive anger. Afterwards you could picked one, but you did not. Knowing what to do and doing it are very different aspects of anger management. We change your behavior so that choices can be made before “those nasty words”, physical actions or abuse can occur. Hypnosis is short-term giving the angry person, a way of substituting a healthy response for an unhealthy one. Stop anger NOW with a free consultation.

Anger is a very normal emotion, but has to be managed carefully so as not to cause damage to relationships. In working with individuals who have difficulty managing their anger, I help develop strategies to recognize the anger before it "boils over", and find appropriate ways to express the anger and reduce the liklihood of it recurring. Without dealing with the anger, people often develop problems with depression, or express the anger in ways that get themselves in to trouble.

Anger management problems are often due to another underlying problem. Many people "hold in" and stifle their anger again and again - until finally there is a Mt. Vesuvius style eruption. The key is in learning to address issues earlier in the game to prevent the build up of resentment. Susan helps people learn to express their feelings appropriately and to set and maintain boundaries. Many people find that with attention to these new skills, they are able to prevent inappropriate "explosions" of anger. Some people have a history of deeply hurt feelings underlying the anger outbursts, and these feelings need to be expressed and healed to prevent difficulty with anger outbursts.

Anger management is a therapeutic approach to help a person learn tools for managing anger, for keeping it under control. My approach is to, along with this, also address what you are is angry about and work to understand and get at the source of the anger. That is, I see anger to a symptom more than the problem itself and therapy helps by you not only to manage your anger by using anger management tools, but more importantly to deal with what you are actually about in the first place and resolve and heal this.

Anger is a normal emotion that lets us know when we are hurting. Our therapy together focuses on learning how to express anger in appropriate and healthy ways. Keeping anger bottled up or lashing out at others negatively affect us and our relationships. Changing these destructive patterns will allow us to experience the full range of healthy feelings.

I see lots of angry teenagers. They disrespect parents and teachers, punch holes in walls, say mean things to siblings, refuse to help out around the house, or are surly and sarcastic and make everyone walk on eggshells around them. Anger management works fine if the person wants to manage their anger, but most of the angry teens brought to my office have no interest in managing their anger—they want people to know they're angry because that's the only way they feel their message will be heard. I help these kids find other ways to express themselves, and help parents hear and appreciate the message—even while disagreeing with it—so that the "heat" leaves, allowing for genuine discussion.

Anger management is all about empowering you with new choices. You learn new ways of thinking so you can respond more calmly to life's disappointment and upsets. You learn new ways of acting so you have options available that keep you from dong things you might later regret. You enjoy the benefit of improved relationships, and knowing that you have transformed old patterns to create a life of greater calm and contentment.

Anger can be toxic - to jobs, relationships, and especially to yourself. Usually beneath the anger are underlying issues of fear, anxiety, hurt, and/or depression. I'll help you identify what the anger is really about, and we'll look at ways to address the underlying issues and teach you how to manage and even eliminate your angry outbursts, by replacing them with more appropriate responses.

Anger is profoundly powerful. It can protect, advocate, change, make itself heard, seen, felt. It is this power that makes it an easy tool, something that we are often taught - usually through difficult circumstances - to use. While there is a time and place for anger, it often overwhelms those boundaries and overshadows other useful tools as well - such as compassion, empathy, peacefulness, and patience. As your therapist, we work together to strengthen those other useful and powerful tools, while also working to look at the roots of anger and frustration and give them the attention and care that they need, so that they can be used in appropriate and mindful ways.

Anger management requires a thorough assessment of the patient/client. It is important to understand is roots, underlying issues, triggers and to provide the tools to manage the emotions and behavior. Alternative coping skills are important to address this. Stress management and impulse control training as well as substance abuse issues have to be considered. In some cases, medication can be useful. Individual, marital and family work needs to be considered.

Appropriately expressed anger is a useful human emotion. Unfortunately, if you are struggling with excessive internal rage & accumulated anger, you can be easily triggered & find yourself out of control. This experience is obviously destructive to others, but you are suffering deeply as well. After lashing out toward loved ones, you are left with feelings of self-loathing & frustration at your inability to control your own emotions. These negative feelings can contribute to more accumulated anger - so the cycle continues. No one wants to live this way. You can choose to bravely explore this vicious cycle of anger. Heal yourself - heal your relationships - heal your life. You can do this!
