Contacting a therapist can feel awkward and scary. We will work at a pace you feel comfortable with. We all want freedom from our emotional pain. Worries or anxiety, anger or depression, insomnia, relationship conflict or traumatic memories may lead to escape & dependence upon food, substances, experiences and relationships for relief. Escape never leads to peace. Thankfully, we all can learn to find a dependable source of peace in our minds and hearts, no matter the external circumstances. I can help you get there. I have been a therapist for over 25 years. Your life will improve as a result of our work together.

I help sensitive and explosive people find the root of their upset so that they can stay in charge of themselves. Unmediated anger ruins relationships. The kids hide, the partner threatens to go and the colleagues call you a "screamer" behind your back. There's another way. I know how to follow these feelings back to the root. How did this fight get born? How did it grow? Who taught you how? Once you get to know yourself, you won't be surprised by a surge of feeling. It's an old friend. You'll know what to do because you've done the hard work of naming them in session. You will feel like people know the real you.

Are you grieving, feeling sad or depressed, anxious, have uncontrollable anger or feelings of low self-esteem? These and other forms of inner conflict can be overwhelming and debilitating. They can cause physical pain as well as fatigue, sleeplessness, eating disorders and a host of other symptoms and behaviors. Psychotherapy can address these issues and help you to lead a more peaceful and fulfilling life. Finding the right therapist is crucial and can be challenging. Location and insurance are practical concerns, but should not be the primary consideration. The rapport between you and your therapist is key to successful treatment.

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.
