Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

I currently offer anger management therapy through discussing the cause and source of anger and working through ways to handle anger in a positive way. Anger is a normal, natural reaction. What is important is how we handle our anger and that we handle it in a positive way. Anger can become addicting for some and itis hard to break the cycle. Anger management is difficult, and I can help you get to where you can handle your anger in a positive way.

CenterLife Counseling

Anger is a normal human emotion. It becomes a problem when the anger overrides our logical brain and results in unacceptable behaviors. We offer individual counseling to help people better understand their trigger and the effects those triggers have physically on the individual. Self-understanding is only a part of the solution. We will help clients develop skills and techniques to recognize when they are becoming angry and interrupt the momentum before it results in hurtful behaviors.

Most often the key to anger management is developing the ability to tune in to internal feelings sooner. Before blowing up. I can help you do this. Another key component to overcoming destructive anger is developing assertiveness rather than becoming withdrawn or aggressive. I can teach you how to be assertive so you can express yourself in a healthy, non-threatening way.

I view anger as a defense or coping mechanism and can help you find healthy coping skills to lead a more fulfilling and maybe less shameful or guilt driven life. Some people may turn their anger inwards and hurt themselves and other people may affect others with their anger or both. Either way, this can change if you allow yourself to change and create the life you want to live.

I have done extensive work in the areas of anger and anger management. I used to co-facilitate an anger management group for adolescent and teen boys and girls. I believe anger is the emotion people or children may show on the outside when there are deeper issues to uncover underneath. In order to be able to get at the heart of these issues, it's necessary to uncover the other underlying feelings by uncovering the purpose the anger serves in the person's life. Therapy is a safe place to be able to share the impulse difficulties and feelings of irritability and it will be addressed with kindness and compassion.

It is interesting that often we find that anger issues stem from early childhood issues. It can come from previous times we felt we were not heard, we were hurt, had negative things happened or were generally in an environment where we were not given a chance to develop a way to deal with anger. The physiological qualities of anger can make it harder to manager. During anger our brain sends signals to our bodies, temporarily, that the situation is life-or-death, and our flight-or-flight mechanism kicks in.

Anger is venom that slowly poisons our body, robbing us of reason and compassion. This type of anger takes away our ability to act with integrity. Yet, there still remains a type of healthy anger; it is one that calls us to action against injustice while allowing for compassion and reason. For those whose anger has spiraled out of control, these two types of anger get confused. We need to begin exploring anger’s triggers, any underlying issues or emotional wounds that have been left to fester and allowed to infect the entire body. For some, learning more effective techniques of managing stress can also be important.

Everyone gets angry. It is a normal emotion. The issues comes when the emotional brain overrides our logical brain, and we behave in ways that for which, once we are calm, we are often embarrassed and remorseful. We end up hurting others. I work with clients to identify the triggers to their anger and find out why certain interactions cause such intense emotional response. Our goal is to be able to manage our emotions well enough so that they do not boil over into hurtful and destructive behaviors. I don in-office and online counseling. You can self-register and self-schedule and appointment at mnonlinecounseling.com.

Anger is something that every human being experiences, and it isn't always bad! I believe that an understanding of what anger is and where it comes from helps us respond to it in healthier ways. It is also essential to learn calming strategies to use when feeling your anger rise. When responded to appropriately, clients often report feeling heard in ways they never have before. I offer home-based therapy, or the more traditional office setting.

I'll help you understand the choices you have to manage and express your feelings in constructive ways. You'll become more aware, accepting, and assertive rather than reactive and misunderstood. Anger is a powerful emotion that needs to be expressed like any other emotion. Anger itself isn't bad - in fact, it's a useful signal that something's wrong and we need to take action. However, the way it's expressed can be either helpful or hurtful. Learn to center yourself and be proactive in expressing your anger in a way other people can hear.

I approach anger management as a basic emotional skill. Like all skills, it can be taught and with practice it can be effectively developed in a short time. Some of the specific techniques I may use in teaching anger management are: identifying early signs of anger, breathing exercises, thought stopping, avoiding triggers, and teaching healthy emotional expression of a full range of feelings. I also use a variety of other techniques from cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) to help my clients learn to effectively manage anger. Beyond the behavioral approach to managing anger I sometimes find it useful to explore the sources of the anger.
