the Anger Cycle!
Although we provide Anger Management within all of our therapy services
(individual therapy, couples therapy, and family therapy), CMFT has
identified a growing need for tailored services targeting anger. CMFT
offers an Anger Management Program to address this symptom more
Our Anger Management programs are available in Individual, Couples,
or Group format to address anger within the
context of the client's life and relationships. Our programs are guided
by a brief, collaborative approach which strives for an entire systemic
change instead of individually focused change.
Participants may include people who internalize anger as
well as those who act it out verbally or behaviorally towards friends,
family, work or personal relationships. Depending on the underlying
issues beneath your anger, additional psychotherapy may prove beneficial
beyond the Anger Management Program.
to Your Anger!
Anger is a normal emotion, a "red flag" signaling to
us that something is wrong. When this signal arises, we are either
perceiving a threat, our boundaries are being compromised, or a need is
not being met. The goal of the Anger Management Program is not only to
rid you of your anger, but allow you to experience the other emotions
previously stifled by anger.
Anger becomes an unhealthy symptom when excessively used as
a defense mechanism to cope with more painful, vulnerable emotions.
Excessive anger can lead to health issues, relationship difficulties and
can lead to physical violence.
The Anger Management Program will help you to understand
what triggers your anger, what your habitual "anger script" is,
what the pain and hurt is underneath, and how to change your
"script" to better get your needs met. Along your journey, we
provide healthier alternatives, tips, tools, homework, and resources to
The Anger Management Program goals:

keeps it going

It's not the anger itself
that's hazardous, but the expression of it that can be dangerous.
