Anger expressed in raw form, typically is destructive to relationships and hurts reputations. Raw anger can harm others and results in property damage, jail time, loss of children, divorce, or unemployment. In contrast, anger can be presented in honest but thoughtful ways, leading toward problem-solving and closer relationships. Each explosive angry moment is different. Each person vexed with chronic anger requires different tools and interventions. In order for an angry person to become calm, clear, trustworthy or even reliably loving -- deep work with past abuses, injustices may need reworking. Learning verbal skills & impulse control, help too. DrCarolFrancis.com and 310-543-1824.

If you and your partner are feeling emotionally disconnected, you may find yourself drawn into repeated arguments with each other about seemingly unrelated issues -- such as money, parenting, chores, and sex. Hiding within these disagreements are painful questions: Can I reach you? Do I matter to you? Can I count on you if I need you? Once these deep, hidden questions are calmed, and you both feel safe and loved, you and your partner will find it much easier to resolve other issues.

I encourage you to express your anger without violence to others while finding how you can harness this emotion to help yourself instead of self-destruction. You have a right to be as angry as you feel and to learn to evaluate the costs of bottling it up or feeling out of cotnrol. The expression of anger and its energy can be used to help you improve your life if you are willing to learn more about it.

Anger is a healthy expression of emotion. When anger and rage become the dominating emotion that rules our actions, a potentially serious problem exists. When this occurs we feel out of control, even frightened by the intensity of feeling. Scared by life altering actions and repercussions. We become lost and confused. We know this is not me but yet it is. This mystery is solvable. Sometimes when negative experiences happen we hide and bury them, We do this so well we forget why the anger is there. Over the years these experiences multiply, fester and grow. A time bomb waiting to be triggered. We can help you unearth the issues, defuse and help you to dismantle the bomb. Call! We can help.

Anger is an emotion everyone feels from time to time, some more often than others, however the way we express our anger varies greatly. Anger management therefore becomes crucial in having successful relationships, being a good friend, a good parent and successful in employment, It can easily be said that the way we manage our anger will be strongly correlated to our success in many areas of our life. Our own ability to recognize anger is sometimes compromised and we may have not developed the ability to express it meaningfully, gracefully or truthfully to ourselves, let alone other people. I can help you navigate this tricky emotion so that you manage it and not the other way around!

I am a counselor specializing in grief and loss. When a loved one dies anger is often a feeling that looms large and can feel frightening. Anger at God, the person that died, the medical system or other people in your life is a normal feeling after a loss. As a bereavement therapist we will work together to understand these feelings and the myriad of other emotions that accompany a difficult transition.

Anger is a normal and healthy reaction to people and situations that undermine our sense of worth or take away something precious to us or cause us harm in some way. But anger, when allowed to fester inside, over time, can be like poisen to the human heart and spirit. It can cause all sorts of damage to our relationships, it can interfere with our rational thinking and make us less effective in life. It can even affect our health and contribute to chronic, long term illness. Life is unfair, and I will be the first to acknowledge your pain about the unfairness your have suffered. I will also provide an evironment where you can find freedom from the devastating effects of your own anger.

With a partner, I have developed a new and effective model of anger management that teaches you eight proven tools for anger control. These skill-based tools include; (1) reducing stress in your life, (2) developing empathy, (3)learning to respond instead of react, (4) changing self-talk, (5) communicating assertively, (6) adjusting expectations, (7) learning to forgive, and (8) retreating and thinking things over. These tools are taught to clients both in individual consultation and in anger management classes. They are also taught in online anger management programs I have produced.

Anger management counseling will help you recognize what makes you angry, as well as many other intense emotions felt throughout the body. We will explore thought processes, triggers, raise awareness and provide tools for each individual case. Counseling will help create problem solving techniques as well as identify different communication styles (assertive vs. aggressive). Everyone feels angry, the anger is not the problem, rather the forms of expression.

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.

Anger is a normal emotion. What often needs to be controlled is how we respond to our angry feelings. Our therapy work will include practical techniques of how to know when your anger is building and what triggers it in the first place. We will also explore if there's other overwhelming emotions that trigger your anger (sadness, anxiety, and embarrassment).
