I will work with you to explore the root of the anger, to understand it and then to find ways to resolve it. Sometimes anger can be a symptom of a larger problem and the result of mistaken expectations. together, we can adjust these expectations to optimize success and to free yourself from these chains that bind when anger becomes an impairment to lilfe and relationships.

Anger tells us that something is wrong, or that we're being mistreated, for example. Anger gives us needed information, so we will not let others abuse us. But when anger turns to rage, it becomes destructive! Anger is an emotion, a feeling only. Rage is a behavior that includes yelling, name-calling, throwing things, punching holes in walls, driving recklessly. Rage is dangerous to us & others. We're born with anger, just as we're born with other emotions. We are not born with rage. Rage happens when anger and resentment build up over a period of time. You don't have to keep living with rage. If you're ready to take an honest look at things and do some work, I can help.

My clinical approach in treating anger is informed by the precepts of Acceptance Commitment Therapy, where all inner experience is mindfully witnessed and accepted without avoidance or resistance. What clients do behaviorally is informed by fully explored life values, as opposed to "reacting" out of the difficult emotion. Clients learn that anger is a helpful emotion when channeled in a life affirming direction. They learn about the neurobiology of anger and how to build in a "pause" before behaving, so that they can choose the most adaptive coping solution, inspired by the more highly evolved places in the brain.
