I work with anyone over 15 years old dealing with stress, complex PTSD, trauma (abuse/neglect), depression, anxiety, anger issues, suicidal ideations, personality disorders, experiencing divorce/separation, and grief.
If you've felt weighed down, stuck, empty, suffering, low energy, locked in a pattern, unsure of yourself, without meaning, or alone then the chances are you're searching for a new way of being. We've all been feeling some form of these at some point, or many points in our lives. Odds are, it all makes sense as to why. If you've suffered from some form of trauma like many of us have, you'll be relieved to know that there are ways to understand these unconscious patterns in your life that honor your journey and bring out your awareness of your truest strengths and brilliance where you'll be empowered as you heal and grow.

Maybe you are experiencing a deep depression that you are too embarrassed to talk about with others for fear that you will be judged as having “weak character.” Maybe anxiety is immobilizing you and you don’t think you can do anything about it, so you do nothing and hope it passes, and it never does. Maybe your problem with anger has damaged relationships with people that you love deeply. Your challenge could be a repeated pattern of behavior like spending money, or viewing pornography, and while these activities make you feel better for a moment, they lead to significant problems in other areas of your life.

Hi, I'm Chelsea. My philosophy is deeply rooted into self awareness. The 6 types of basic emotion are sadness, happiness, fear, anger, surprise and disgust. Sometimes we experience the emotions but don’t have the words to describe them. Sometimes we can explain exactly how we feel but struggle to show it. Though we may not have control over the cause of our life obstacles, we have the power of choice and ultimate control over our reaction to said struggles. Knowing the 6 basic emotions and our reactions when experiencing them is the beginning of self awareness. Being self aware affects both our inter- and intrapersonal connections.

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.
