The 1 emotion we’ve all experienced is “Anger”. Anger is a secondary emotion that is usually triggered by feelings of fear and anxiety. I can help you learn how to change your maladaptive thoughts, unpleasant emotions & unwanted behaviors that are linked to problems in life causing you distress and misery.

Anger Management Therapy can be very useful with those that struggle with anger on a regular basis. With this therapy I will help you learn to control your anger to keep it from controlling you. To start with we work on not immediately responding to the anger. Then we work on understanding what the anger is trying to tell us, and then using it in a beneficial way. You are not seen as a "bad" person because you lose your temper, I provide a safe environment to help you move forward.

I use a Choice-Based Anger Management approach when dealing with anger. We cannot choose the words and actions of others, but we can choose how we respond. I teach my clients how to respond to adverse stimuli rather than reacting to the stimuli.

Many men feel more permission to express anger than any other emotion. However, underneath the anger is almost always a feeling of hurt, resentment, or disappointment. In our work together we will explore the triggers of your anger, as well as more healthy and constructive ways to manage it.

— Bryan Cohen, Psychologist in Lafayette Hill, PA

I have worked over 15 years of experience working with individuals (child/adult) who deal with poor anger management. I consider myself an expert because I have seen a substantial amount of progress from each individual I have worked with over time. I have also learned to grow and adapt to this ever changing society which we live and prosper together in. I learn a lot each time I prepare and facilitate sessions with individuals with anger issues.

Anger is frequently a result of frustration, or of feeling blocked or thwarted from something the subject feels is important. Anger Management Therapy focuses on preventing and controlling anger in every aspect of life.

— Da'Keisha M. Johnson, Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor in Lanham, MD

Anger Management was the very first job I had in this field. I never thought I would like it but I love it. Anger simply boils down to an emotion that comes out in order to protect other more vulnerable emotions such as rejection, confusion, humiliation or doubt. The list is endless. Anger also comes along with a lot of shame, following our actions. The approach to treating Anger requires honoring the Anger as a feeling and processing its meaning before it becomes an action.

— Christopher Grove, Addictions Counselor
 

Anger is a natural emotion; however, it is sometimes handled inappropriately. My therapy focuses on coping with anger in appropriate ways.

— Lynette Lacey-Godfrey, Licensed Professional Counselor

I have found CBT to be a very effective way to work with clients who struggle with anger management and impulse control issues. A component of anger has to do with the thought responses to a triggering event. In helping clients identify the automatic thought response, you can help to illustrate ways to reframe their thoughts to minimize the intensity of the anger feeling, and subsequent dysfunctional behavior. I also provide use of tools such as thought stopping, and deep breathing to help.

— Diane Gaston, Licensed Clinical Social Worker in San Diego, CA
 

Many times anger patterns come from learned behaviors in childhood or pent up frustrations that need to be talked about. Coupled with Solution Focused therapy, clients might benefit from setting more boundaries, being more assertive to get their needs met. Also self care and relaxation techniques work well in this area.
