The Limits of Anger Management Approaches

Anger management teaches techniques to manage the emotional feelings and physiological arousal of anger. It can be useful to the extent that some portion of your anger is flexible and does not trigger a critical mass of internal feelings of worthlessness or self-devaluing. If you feel unlovable when your spouse forgets something important to you, inadequate when you make the wrong turn on the highway, or devalued when your co-worker succeeds, then trying to manage your physiological arousal will feel like trying to hold back a fire hydrant with a wine-bottle cork.

Transforming Anger, Not Just Anger Management

“If we become angry at our anger, we will have two angers at the same time.”
-Thich Nhact Hahn

In order to stop the compulsive nature of anger you need to become more familiar with, and accepting of, your body’s full range of feelings.  

Compassionately Getting to the Root Cause of Anger

We’ll help you compassionately get to the root of anger, one’s own intolerance of our vulnerability, that can produce far better results than traditional anger management: 

  • Expression of anger or anger avoidance interferes with your relationship
  • You or others are afraid of your anger
  • You don’t understand why you feel angry sometimes
  • You have missed career opportunities because of your anger in the workplace
  • Anger while driving or road rage is a normal part of your driving habits
  • You feel exhausted at trying to hide and protect others from your anger
  • You feel embarrassed by the things you do when you feel angry
  • You find yourself abusing alcohol or drugs because it helps you contain your anger or because it helps you express your anger. These are common areas addressed with  anger management.
  • You want to make more decisions that are in-line with your values and not because of anger
  • People important to you respond negatively to your anger

Frequently Asked Questions About Anger Management Counseling

FAQ

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic and forced shutdown of many businesses, we began offering online counseling sessions to new and existing clients in order to better serve the community.

We plan on continuing to offer online sessions even after businesses start to reopen, but clients will have be given the option of meeting with their counselor face-to-face or through online virtual sessions. They will even be able to alternate between face-to-face and online sessions for their convenience.

Keith Miller & Associates Counseling does not accept insurance, however many of our clients submit their own claims for “out-of-network” reimbursement and often receive 40-60% of the expense.

Psychiatry: $450 for 90 minute intake sessions and $200-$300 for follow-up visits.
