Clients need to learn how to identify their emotions, as well as how to express, release, manage, and control their anger or angry feelings. Through the use of role plays, sand tray, and other therapeutic worksheets, handouts, exercises, games, and activities, clients will learn that anger is not a negative feeling, but an emotion that indicates something is wrong and changes need to be made.

I see people who believe that they or their loved one has anger issues. I work with my clients to help them find the source of their anger and then develop the ability to manage their emotions. This is done through the use of coping skills and mindfulness training. I teach people that emotions have energy and if the energy isn't appropriately expressed it will come out in a way that will hurt the client and those around him or her.

Anger issues are often the sign that an individual has experienced a significant trauma or sense of loss in their life. Often times individuals, especially men, are deemed in need of anger management without much exploration into the underlying causes that may lead an individual to act out of a sense of fear, abandonment, or injustice. If you are an individual experiencing problematic anger in your life, talking to a trauma-informed therapist can help educate and empower a person to find more effective ways to deal with underlying issues that lead to anger.

Anger is a very complex and yet common emotion. What is sad about anger is that it hurts everyone and becomes part of the pattern of interaction that couples/families get stuck on. My goal in therapy is to uncover the emotions that underlie anger helping the individual give a different meaning to his/her experiences and ease the anger. In this process, the partner and/or family members can understand more about what causes this anger and a new connection is created leading to new relational patterns based on closeness and connection.

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.

“I wonder why we just can’t agree on things if we are in a relationship.” Well the truth of the matter is that you’re likely going to have very different feelings about some things. That is why it is important to expect some disagreements in your relationship. "I want to be able to communicate from my heart and feel connected in my relationship but I do not know how. Can couples counseling help us?" When couples do not communicate it opens the door to destroy their ability to function together in their relationship. A lack of communication WILL cause Insecurity, Secrecy, Trust Issues, Distance and a Loss of Intimacy. All mentioned WILL cause a marriage to suffer.

My goal with clients with anger issues is to extinguish the emotion. How to do this varies with clients but can involve finding substitute behaviors for expressing anger, creating consequences for the anger, or finding rewards for controlling the anger. It is also important to understand the function of the anger in a relationship. If anger is a distancing mechanism, for example, then the client needs to find alternative ways to find more "space" in his life and a partner might also need help becoming more independent. One must use care, however, not to blame the victim when anger is an issue in a relationship. Yet another approach to managing anger is through insight: as did Jung.

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.

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.

A lack of ability to manage one’s anger can have devastating effects on a person’s life, to include intimate relationships, parenting, work, and friendships. Clients often present frustrated with themselves for this inability, but feeling unable to change what feels to them like an automatic response and a normal response to stress and annoyances. At Lepage Associates we help people recognize managing anger is a skill, and like all other skills it can be leaned with guidance and hard work. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) has been the preferred method of treatment for anger for decades. Cognitively, clients are taught to become more aware of when and how their anger develops by identifying
