Looking for a change? Online counseling is convenient, effective, efficient, and confidential.
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.

To understand anger means getting in touch with the inner feelings that outer situations can trigger. Anger is not about external events as much as it is about our own inner reality. Anger is often felt by men who are depressed. They don't feel depressed, just angry, irritable, explosive, etc. Once they begin to explore WHY they are feeling angry the work of managing and healing anger can begin. My work is not simply learning to count to 10 before speaking, or other tools that are useful to learn. It's about developing a quiet mastery of self and being the person you want to be...self confident, calm, and able to handle what comes your way.
