Anger Management

Anger is an emotion that all of us experience at times, and it exists on a continuum from mild irritation to rage.  The ways in which we choose to express this emotion can also range from subtle sarcasm and verbal jabs all the way to explosive behaviors. It is often the ways in which we express our anger, rather than the feeling itself, that creates rifts and difficulties in our personal and professional relationships.

A therapist can help you develop ways to effectively express your concerns without causing disruption in the relationships that are important to you. Using a range of tools that could include working on assertive communication, boundary-setting, self-monitoring your thoughts and physical sensations, and noticing your body’s reactions to stress, a therapist can help you determine a plan of action in order to better manage yourself and help you find your way towards healthy, more satisfying relationships.
