Philip Kolba, MA

Psychotherapist

Online Therapist / Coach

I provide individual psychotherapy for anger management. Anger is normal emotion that everyone experiences. It becomes a problem when one expresses anger inappropriately or one lacks the proficiency to express any emotions but anger. I use Humanistic and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) to help my clients understand their anger, improve their emotional experience, and express their emotions in healthy ways. A healthy emotional life is the cornerstone of living a full and successful life.

Clients often identify "anger" as a primary concern on counseling intake forms. So many of us struggle with anger because it occurs in response to so many life experiences and we are rarely taught how to appropriately communicate about it. Anger, and the way we express it, often leaves us with negative consequences that impact our lives at home and at work. The reality about anger is that it is often a secondary emotion...a reaction to hurt and pain. Cognitive therapy can help identify what thoughts and events trigger our anger. Once we can identify the triggers we can learn to be more conscious and active in choosing how we will respond to them.

Angry outbursts usually reflect an autonomic nervous system that is dysregulated from unresolved trauma and accumulated stress response. Not only do I work with you to give you new tools and ways to put a stop sign between the stimulus and your anger reponse, but using the tools of Somatic Experiencing we can actually discharge that fight or flight energy that is backed up behind the dam waiting to explode. This will leave you feeling calm and well regulated in the face of daily stresses and encounters.

Anger is not, in itself, a dangerous or negative thing. Anger, like all emotions has a purpose that usually speaks to something that feels unfair or unjust and/or the frustration of blocked needs/desires. But when anger gets out of hand, when we can't control it, it can be emotionally debilitating and can ruin our relationships, our piece of mind, even our livelihoods. The damage isn't just limited to the individual challenged with anger either. The fear, sadness, and anger it creates for those we love has a destruction path all its own. Luckily, therapy can help you to manage this potentially damaging emotion, so that you can reduce the destruction anger can create.

Managing anger is an opening of the door to the Self. Therapy is of tremendous value for anyone who wants to learn more about responding in the world rather than reacting in the world -and later wishing you hadn't....again and again and again.Managing anger has nothing to do with willpower and everything to do with gaining consciousness, setting intentions, and learning about the wounded parts of the self that are lurking below the surface that can trigger such chaos in one's life. ready to get off the roller coaster of reactivity and begin to feel empowered and happy like never before?

Are you angry all the time, suffering with constant dissatisfaction and irritability? For some people, everything seems fine and under control until a wire gets tripped causing you to explode or fall apart. Maybe this looks like a shout, a push, or a punch, a rant or escalating up to tornado-like destruction. Or perhaps your anger goes inward: a clenched jaw, stomach-aches, depression, or high blood pressure. Often these feelings and incidents are accompanied by feelings of shame and low self-esteem. Anger is a normal and even necessary response to threats to our emotional and physical well-being. Were it not for this emotion, our species would be extinct, so my job is not to eliminat....

Although anger is an emotion that we were all born with, it is also a choice. Jesus said don't be quick to anger and don't sin in your anger, but He never said don't be angry. We all have this emotion - it is only a matter of controlling and taming it. It is a choice. I give my clients tools that help them achieve that goal. Anger is a lot of energy that can be used for good - it's just the matter of knowing how and I help with that.

Grey Matters International and the work of Kevin J. Fleming, Ph.D approaches issues of anger management in a very humane yet fresh perspective. You see, anger is a normal emotion but it is the valence (intensity) as well as the coupling choice of what one does with this that is the problem. Telling someone to "not" do it or modifying behavior with a trite psychological plan that only breeds a compliant response is not the way to change anger. Brainwave optimization is a new cutting edge technology that allows one to rewire circuitry responsible for reactivity driving the anger.

A lot of people "bottle and blow," not saying what they want to say a bunch of times and then blowing up. So a big part of managing anger has to do with finding better ways to get what you want. There are also helpful strategies for containing your impulse to blow up, so it doesn't get away from you and make things worse. Lots of people think that it's good to "blow off steam," but in fact we have clear data that "venting" anger actually makes you more angry!

It is absolutely normal for people to get angry. It is only a problem if you are not able to control it and it overtakes you and has a negative effect or hurts the people around you. When the negative consequences are more frequent and you want to do something about it, then half of the battle is already won. Anger is an external emotion. I will guide you to peel the layers and look at where these things are stemming from. You will work on the root cause of the emotions and learn skills and tools that will help you control your emotions. You will work on ways to boost your confidence and self-esteem, learn how to build healthier and lasting relationships and express your emotions confidently

More than 20 years ago, I had an "Anger Management" problem. I know what it is like to try to keep it under control to only find myself saying cruel things I wish I didn't say. It destroyed a relationship. However, that inspired me to learn how to deal with my anger in a healthy way. I was highly motivated; it took me less than 12 sessions. If you struggle with your anger, we will come up with real strategies that help you pay attention to what is going on in your body so we can prevent the angry outbursts from happening. You may need somebody who can challenge you and keep you in check while at the same time not judging you. Your next step is to call me to make an appointment.

Anger has both harmful and healthy/constructive potential depending on how it is dealt with. If you are coming to therapy for anger management, you are probably experiencing anger as interfering with your relationships, your work, or your general wellbeing. Sometimes a propensity towards anger signals that other things may be going on--stress, shame, or other feelings that may be hard to tolerate. In an atmosphere of acceptance and non judgment, we will work with mindfulness to build tolerance for a wider range of feelings, to find ease and to uncover the gems hidden beneath reactive anger.

Anger is another guest that comes knocking at our door. We choose to let it and entertain it and also tell it when to leave and go home. Some anger is healthy. Some anger is not. Finding out how t express yourself and learning what triggers your anger as well as how to substitute it with other emotions, actions, feelings and thoughts can change your life.

My approach to anger is to understand first the severity, triggers, and what functions a person's anger is supposed to serve. For example, if it is protective anger; that type of anger is usually displayed when a person is feeling hurt, vulnerable, or distrustful. More than likely, protective anger is one that occurred as a result of childhood trauma or even trauma as an adult (e.g. emotional, physical, or sexual abuse). Once I understand where the anger is coming from and it's purpose, the next step would be to work on coping skills for anger such as cognitive behavioral therapy or the "5 second light rule." I practice how to use these strategies with you in the office in specific scenarios

Anger is a healthy instinctual emotion. But it can be very destructive if it isn't managed and you are consciously aware and mindful of this part of yourself. Often we have learned to bury our instinctual anger response because our culture teaches us it is bad. Anger can be scary and even life-threatening if it's directed at you. This is a universal response. Often, because we bury our anger or haven't learned how to manage it in a healthy way, it comes out in ways that are incredibly harmful. I can help you have a new, healthier experience of your anger so that you can stay connected to people in your life and keep yourself safe from doing harmful things that could ruin your life.

Anger in itself is not a bad thing. It is a feeling and feelings are there for a reason. You can manage your frustrations without losing control of yourself. In my work with you, you will learn your personal signs and symptoms of anger and catch yourself before you reach that point of no return. "My anger outbursts and destructive behavior seem to come from nowhere!" This is not true. You can learn the root cause, slow it down and have control over your life again. You will learn how to be assertive instead of being aggressive.

I use cognitive behavioral techniques to help my clients to identify the thinking that leads to their feelings and behaviors. I then work my my clients collaboratively to examine the evidence for that thinking, then explore different perspectives and change the thoughts into more helpful ones that reduce the feelings of anger, making them more manageable.

Other people can be really thoughtless, rude, & annoying. Sometimes it feels like they deserve our anger. Yet anger comes with a price. We run the risk of losing our relationships with our family & coworkers. We feel embarrassed & ashamed. We wished we could do better, & are angry with ourselves. I use a therapeutic technique that has been shown in research to be the most effective in the treatment of anger problems, cognitive behavioral therapy. I combine this powerful technique with EMDR, Somatic Experiencing to get at the root of your anger problem and help you making meaningful and lasting change. You can feel better. You just need to call. Call 415-820-1487 for a free phone consult.

I have extensive experience working with men who are struggling with their anger management. Oftentimes, such men come to see me because the way they are experiencing and expressing their anger is causing serious damage to their relationships, either at home or on the job. Ironically, such men often feel simultaneously disconnected from and ineffectual in their sense of personal power. I help men access their own vulnerability as a way to start feeling what is behind the ineffective expressions of anger and rage. From there, men can begin to reclaim a more true and embodied sense of their strength and power, one that is far more connected with the heart.

Anger is a luxury that you may not be able to afford. There are many types of anger. The type I specialize in is the kind that is turned inward, leading to depression and anxiety. This sort of anger may not even seem like anger most of the time. But it is a joy killer, and it leads to such unhappy emotions as envy and jealousy, sadness and desperation. If you are feeling anger and do not know how to express it, you may wish to engage in therapy in order to learn safe and productive ways to handle your anger, no matter what it's source.

Expression of anger is often the gateway to reaching underlying feelings of pain, such as hurt. In therapy - with both individuals and couples - I help angry persons stay connected to their upset feelings and express them in a way that strengthens relationships. When we have the courage to share the painful feelings with persons we trust, we experience increased self-confidence and deeper intimacy. If you have repetitive EXPLOSIVE anger, which is emotionally harmful or physically dangerous, I urge you to find an anger management group, where participants work together to gain control over these behaviors, before seeking therapy with me.

My approach to anger management is unique in that I don't believe it is something to be controlled or caged. Anger, like all emotions, has a dark side and a light side. It has an important message for us that most definitely needs expression. My hopes would be to help you channel anger towards being a positive in your life. Anger does hold life force so let's work on directing that life force towards good in your world.

Rightful anger has an important place in life where and when it must be expressed. However, there are many forms of anger that are internally destructive and can become externally dangerous to ourselves and others. Some forms of anger come from long term contentious relationships and occurrences which can never go away or decrease in pain and agitation. Some forms of anger are explosive on the moment and other anger comes as a gradual escalating irritation that then reaches its limits. Counseling serves to teach skills of anger management and can defuse and even prevent out of control anger from erupting. Counseling is known to be very effective for addressing and safely controlling anger.
