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.

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!

Many people have quick tempers and are easily flooded with unhappy emotions. Using new information from neuroscience, we help people learn to observe and think about their own anger process, and then learn ways to re-evaluate and apply “antidote” thoughts to the angry ones. Conversely, many people carry resentment and grudges, and have a lively inner critic of themselves or others, but don’t know how to effectively request what they need and want. They may stew rather than share the needs for safety, control or connection which fuel the anger. Again, we help people follow the feelings, re-appraise them, and come up with a whole different set of actions and reactions. And then practice them in rea....

Anger is usually an indication of other deep seated emotions. While working on reducing angry behavior can help live a more peaceful life, getting to the deep seated emotion that drives the behavior is the approach I use. Doing this may not be the desired approach for many; however, the emotional reactions someone has with anger management can can be difficult to manage without understanding what is going on with them.

New Directions Counseling, 150 S. Washington St Suite 303, Falls Church, VA, Falls Church, Virginia

Using an integrative approach, based on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Assertiveness Training, and Interpersonal Psychology, I seek to understand, raise your consciousness, teach, role play, and develop healthy assertive communication skills and stress management skills. I employ empathy in my approach, trying to understand and raise your consciousness of the background, cognitive distortions, and emotional triggers which perpetuate your angry response. I also try to help you identify what sadness, difficulties with lack of control and uncertainty, and fears may be driving your angered response. I employ homework exercises and stress management development to help you reach these goals.
