I have extensive experience in couples counseling, co-parenting, anger management, parenting and grief work.
Life is a challenge...even if you don't have any major problems. When you experience one or more additional stressors, such as relationship issues with a child/partner, challenges with blending families, job, financial, health, mood, legal, or ex-partner issues, you might find yourself struggling to keep your sanity at times or realize that you are not living up to your potential. If you wish to feel more full-filled emotionally, physically, mentally, professionally, spiritually and/or in your relationships, I can help you explore which changes could be helpful to reach that goal or what is causing you to stay stuck and in pain.

My specialties include: anger management, anxiety, depression, communication, family dynamics, grief and loss, life transitions, relationship stressors, and stress.
Seeking therapy can be a challenging step, because opening up about intimate issues to a stranger is both terrifying and can leave you feeling vulnerable. That's why it's important to find somebody with whom you feel comfortable. It is my priority to make one feel at ease, because reaching your goal is more difficult when this is not at the foundation of the therapeutic experience. This approach has enabled me to work with a wide array of children, teens, adults, couples, and families.

Are you feeling stuck or overwhelmed? Do you long for a greater sense of well-being and fulfillment in life? When our needs are unmet or injured, it can result in distorted thinking and ineffective behaviors. We may feel unable to move past anxiety, depression, grief, fear, despair, anger, or trauma, and move into self-protection, isolation, or avoidance in order to cope. By creating a nurturing, nonjudgmental environment where it's safe to express feelings and emotions, I believe that we will identify root issues and move beyond coping to restoration. Contact me for a FREE 15-minute phone consultation!

Anger Management Therapists

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.
