Is anger is driving a wedge between you and your loved ones, making every day feel like a battle? Is the stress so overwhelming that even simple pleasures – like a family dinner – feel like too much to handle? Many try to ignore or suppress these emotions, but this isn't just unhelpful; it's a ticking time bomb that can ruin your life. If you're yearning for a lasting sense of peace, know that you're not alone. In today’s high-pressure world, more and more people are finding themselves stuck in a vicious cycle of stress, anger, and regret. But it doesn’t have to be this way – I’m here to help.

Do you struggle with anxiety, depression, anger, a challenging relationship or disconnected from yourself? Do you put your needs at the bottom of the to-do list? Do you wonder if life should feel somehow better? Happier? Now more than ever, people are feeling anxious, overwhelmed and uncertain about how they are supposed to manage their relationships, careers and their lives. Pushing away your needs and not taking time for yourself can lead to long-term issues for your mind and body. I believe it shouldn’t be so hard to live a better life.

Feeling distant from your spouse? Fighting with your teen? Struggling with anger, anxiety, depression, or addiction? Experienced trauma? I work with a variety of clients, but particularly enjoy problems in which clients that have felt misunderstood or mistreated. This includes working with adolescents, parent-teen conflict, relationship difficulties in both individuals and couples, addictions, anger or anxiety management, trauma, and Borderline Personality Disorder. In many of the clients I see, fear and confusion are often barriers to a satisfying life. Healing often comes through gaining confidence in areas one can control.

I work with people who want to change their patterns of behaving and responses to triggers. Their goals are to navigate a hard season, heal through trauma, find relief from stress/burn-out, and foster healthier relationships. Many of my clients struggle with anxiety/panic, depression, managing hard emotions (like anger), perfectionism/the need to achieve, low self-worth, and codependency/boundary-setting. As a first generation Canadian Filipina, I often see BIPOC folks wanting a therapist who understands what it's like to navigate one's life, identity, and trauma, while straddling two cultures.

Anger Management Counsellors

How long does therapy take for anger management?

Treatment duration depends on the person’s specific challenges and circumstances. There are treatments for anger problems that are shorter and more goal-oriented, like Cognitive behavior therapy (CBT), which can last weeks to months. Others, like Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) may last between six months and a year, while a more intensive treatment, like psychodynamic therapy, is open-ended, and clients may see their therapist for a year or longer.

How do you know if you need therapy for anger management?

Everyone gets mad from time to time. But when angry outbursts become frequent and cause damage to relationships, whether at home or in the office, it may be a good time to look into therapy. A therapist can assess where a client’s anger may be coming from, suggest strategies for averting angry outbursts, and help a client create a plan to become a calmer version of themselves.

Is there medication for anger management?

Medications do exist that help people mitigate the feeling of anger, but these are reserved for people with anger-related psychiatric disorders, such as intermittent explosive disorder, oppositional defiant disorder, or in some cases borderline personality disorder. In these cases, antidepressant medications may be prescribed to help with the client’s symptoms. In most cases of anger management, however, talk therapy is the recommended treatment, along with lifestyle changes where relevant.

What’s the best way to encourage someone to seek help for anger issues?

It’s helpful to express your concern and love for the person while framing therapy as a tool for improving their life. Offering specific examples of how an individual’s behavior affected either themselves or others should be done with compassion and with empathy. It may be useful to devise a game plan—breaking the process down into parts, such as finding a therapist, making appointments, and looking into insurance coverage.
