How to manage Anger?
Anger is a normal expression of emotion, it’s how we chose to express this emotion that is important.
Therapy can be a place to express anger more appropriately. Finding ways to talk about your anger rather than bottling up feelings of anger and later exploding.
Seeking help for anger can be stigmatized by others, when in fact it is quite normal to have anger. Often times, people tell me how they have not been shown how to properly express their emotions in their families.

High levels of stress, lack of self-care and being unable to be assertive are some reasons when anger can turn into explosive anger. In therapy, you can learn how to better communicate with others and express your emotions in appropriate ways.
Anger is such a common emotion, it bubbles up in sessions so often. My work as an anger management group facilitator at a local mental health agency has given me the tools and experience to work with individuals in my private practice.
Psychotherapy can help you learn how to be less stressed, increase your care for yourself, learn to be more assertive, increase communication skills, appropriate ways to express anger, and overall feel less angry.
