anger management Counseling

  • Do you notice yourself exploding, quickly going from 0 to 100?
  • Do you have a hard time identifying what’s triggering you?
  • Did you see anger growing up in your family?
  • Are you hoping to gain more control over your reactions?
  • Have reactive blow outs impacted your close relationships?

Perhaps you have exploded in moments of anger, saying things you regret. However, these moments don’t feel like a representation of who you are or who you want to be.

Through restructuring thought patterns, developing emotional regulation skills, and creating new experiences, anger management counseling can help you reclaim your life and get back on track.

All emotions have a function of communicating needs. Anger is an emotion that serves the purpose of protecting us and indicating to us that something is wrong. It is often used a defense or protection to keep us safe when we experience difficult emotions.

Anger is a secondary emotion, which means, it protects us from feeling more painful emotions underneath, like sadness, hurt, or longing. Once you learn to understand your triggers, you can access the emotion underneath the anger and communicate more effectively.

While anger serves a protective role, reactions to the anger might be dysfunctional in your life. There is nothing wrong with anger itself, however, behavioral reactions to it can cause disruption in relationships and throughout your life.

Understanding your anger is extremely important in your ability to respond to it differently. In anger management counseling, your therapist will help you to identify triggers, thoughts, emotions, and reactive behavior patterns.

This work will be judgment free, because I know how hard dealing with anger and behaviors we regret can be.

While specific plans are customized for each individual, in general, treatment includes the following tasks:

  • Identify achievable goals for treatment together with your therapist
  • Review your history in relationships and in dealing with anger
  • Learn skills to break patterns of negative thoughts, process emotions, and be present
  • Develop clarity on the things that are most important to you
  • Learn and practice coping skills to manage anger moving forward

Discovering the function of your anger and finding new ways to cope will empower you to respond differently and be heard by others more clearly.

We will help you get back in the driver’s seat, instead of having angry outbursts running your life.

If you have been in situations where your anger has taken over and you said something you didn’t mean, risking a relationship or your job, you would likely benefit from professional support.

Likewise, if you notice yourself responding to anger in a way that feels out of your control, perhaps when you are driving, triggered by something a family member says, or directed at your partner, we can work together to create a new pattern.

Yes. Research shows that online therapy works, and all the interventions I use are effective when administered via tele-health. Due to the cited benefits (e.g. privacy, convenience, ease of translating skills outside therapy) I am online seeing clients virtually at this time.

At this time, due to the virtual nature of my practice and management of safety concerns, I am not taking clients who express suicidal or homicidal ideation as part of their anger. If you find yourself in this category, please seek an in-person provider in your community.

My rate for individual sessions is $120. I am out-of-network with insurance, but can provide a receipt for out-of-network reimbursement.

Most of us never learned in our upbringing how to process anger in an effective way. Through anger management counseling, you’ll learn coping skills you can apply and carry with you long after you complete treatment.

Here is what you can expect from the intake process:

  • Sign up for an intro call to share your needs and ask me any questions you have
  • If we’re a good fit, I will send you an intro email from my platform and we will schedule our first session
  • You’ll log in, create a profile, and complete intake paperwork
  • The day of session, you will log into the system a few minutes before the designated start time, and we will begin

Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.
