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.

"Redemptive Anger" is a powerful part of a meaningful life. Destructive anger, however, destroys relationships and sucks vitality from the Soul. Anger is an especially troubling emotion for people with strong religious commitments, who often mistakenly assume anger is somehow "bad." I work with individuals to understand the roots of anger, and to develop practical strategies for harnessing anger's redemptive possibilities.

Anger is a powerful emotion. Sometimes it is secondary to other emotions that are more uncomfortable to acknowledge than the anger. Anger can lead one to do things later regretted. Anger can also come with many "tabu's" attached; which further impede the healthy expression of anger. There are times when anger can be harnessed as the fuel to drive positive change. In counseling you can learn to stop the unhealthy and destructive expression of anger. You can lean to unchain yourself from the "Tabu" messages attached to anger. You can learn to harness the power in anger for healthy and constructive uses to fuel positive changes.

I use a combination of cognitive behavior therapy and logo therapy when addressing anger management. The first approach focuses on behavior and consequence and how we can change our behaviors and thoughts using an evidenced based "set of tools". The later is best translated "therapy through meaning". Some if not most anger issues develop as a result of lost or undeveloped meaning and purpose in life which can lead to feelings of powerlessness. Together we will explore faulty patterns of thinking and deep-rooted personal messages that have shaped your belief about who you are.
