Yes, girls and women can struggle with anger issues. Anger is not just for women. It can be embarrassing and certainly difficult to talk about. Learning about your triggers and finding appropriate ways to handle your anger is where we start. I have learned that anger is often a signal, telling us something we need to pay attention to. Don't let anger get the best of you. It's a normal emotion (not a bad one). A lot of my work focuses on educating and empowering girls and women on ALL of their emotions. Anger is one of those that will trip you up!

I assist clients in finding the source of their anger which resides in their belief system, not in a current circumstances. When we find the negative beliefs, they are replaced with truth, releasing the need for reactive anger. Anger in itself is not wrong, but some of the actions and reactions are not healthy or empowering. I teach people how to take control of the feelings and help them work for them not against them.

Uncontrollable anger, a bad temper and aggression can lead to significant relationship and career failures. Identifying the triggers that cause one to become upset and learning more adaptive strategies and solutions are the essential ingredients for change. Cognitive restructuring, problem solving, improving communication and relaxation strategies are but a few approaches used in anger management treatment. Working with partners, spouses or family members is also beneficial. At times, medication may be warranted in conjunction with therapy or counseling. We at Ashburn Psychological Services are here to help.

Living with anger management can cause difficulties in many aspects of a person's world. Personal, professional and community relationships are at risk if one struggles with anger issues. Tools to reduce anger management involve exploring the root of the anger and dissecting it to discern when, how and why certain anger triggers are activated. Once identifying triggers, we work on how the client can learn to channel the anger into a more productive direction be it via physical activity or other appropriate energy releases. There can also be a focus on mindfulness and meditation to help with the overwhelming anger impulses.

We all experience anger in our lives. I help clients develop healthy ways to experience and express their anger by: • Identifying effective ways to handle anger and express feelings; • Understanding how feelings such as fear, pride and inferiority feed anger; • Transforming negative patterns of thinking, relating and behaving that influence anger; • Learning ways to communicate, resolve conflicts and meet needs successfully; and • Developing a healthy lifestyle that supports a successful life. The constructive use of anger, assertiveness, helps express and preserve our needs, worth, and convictions while considering and respecting the needs and feelings of others.
