For clients who experience anger and struggle with expressing themselves in healthy ways, I help them process what is going on in their life that they believe is feeding or causing them to feel angry and help them uncover what is at the root or core of their anger. I work with clients to help them improve their coping skills and learn how to express themselves in a more assertive, safe, and respectful way with others who may also be involved in conflict with them, and help them recognize when it is time to let go and walk away from the object or source of their anger.

All too often anger moves us to do acts we would almost never do. The basis of anger has been found to be fear. Fear of being out of control, fear of not knowing what to do, fear of an unwanted past coming back. Working with individuals, couples, and families, I help them find the behavioral resources to deal with the fear and thereby reduce the anger. The reduction of the anger through processes learned in our therapy, gives the client the power to control reactions to events. That power is the means to manage any anger, present and in the future.

Anger can sometimes help you be assertive in important situations. However, if you consistently express your anger in ways that negatively affect your relationships and self-esteem, you may have an anger management issue. In therapy, clients learn about the underlying reasons for their anger and ways to self-soothe and validate their own experience. With more self-awareness, clients are able to express their feelings with calm, clarity, and greater sensitivity to others. We can work together to feel less on edge, so you are more approachable and experience greater satisfaction in relationships.

Anger is a healthy and necessary human emotion; however, if it gets out of control, it can create difficulties at work, in personal relationships and ultimately interfere with life enjoyment. There is likely a reason, or many reasons, you are feeling so angry. I can assist you with exploring and understanding your anger better and learning strategies that will help you to feel calmer, communicate better and enjoy more satisfying work and personal relationships.

When working with clients who struggle with managing their anger in healthy and constructive ways, I like to first educate them about feelings and the process of emotion regulation. Because anger is a secondary emotion, I strive to help my clients to understand what they are experiencing underneath their anger, and work with them to address that, which can be a helpful and effective way for them to experience their emotions in a more healthy and appropriate way. I also like to teach coping skills so that my clients have more healthy ways of addressing their anger in the moment.
