Anger is an emotion that, when expressed assertively treats self and others with dignity, and helps us stand up for ourselves to clarify and express what we need or want, like or don't like, etc. On the other hand, anger, as an automatic defense strategy, can damage both ourrelationships and personal health. As a defense strategy, anger is expressed in one of two ways. Some express their resentment outwardly, such as with yelling, and others express it inwardly, by withdrawing, stewing with resentment inside. Awareness of inner thoughts, emotions & body's signals, and understanding how brain & body work together are keys to regulating anger.

Anger can be a useful tool to us as it informs us that something we have experienced is wrong or unjust. It becomes an obstacle to healthy relationships and daily functioning, however, when our anger becomes uncontrollable and seemingly unconnected to any one specific threat. Clients will benefit from an approach to anger management that is compassionate and strengths-based, equipping clients with tools to ride out their anger while also examining the function of a client's anger within a larger interpersonal framework.

I assist clients in finding the source of their anger which resides in their belief system, not in a current circumstances. When we find the negative beliefs, they are replaced with truth, releasing the need for reactive anger. Anger in itself is not wrong, but some of the actions and reactions are not healthy or empowering. I teach people how to take control of the feelings and help them work for them not against them.

Yes, girls and women can struggle with anger issues. Anger is not just for women. It can be embarrassing and certainly difficult to talk about. Learning about your triggers and finding appropriate ways to handle your anger is where we start. I have learned that anger is often a signal, telling us something we need to pay attention to. Don't let anger get the best of you. It's a normal emotion (not a bad one). A lot of my work focuses on educating and empowering girls and women on ALL of their emotions. Anger is one of those that will trip you up!
