         Anger Management 


Anger Management is not about never getting angry.

Everyone gets angry.

Anger is a completely normal, usually healthy emotion.

How can you tell if anger is a problem for you?

When anger gets out of control and turns destructive, it can led to problems.

  • Problems at work
  • Problems in your relationship
  • Problems in your quality of life

And it can make you feel as if you are at the mercy of an unpredictable and powerful emotion.

Anger Management is not about never getting angry.

Anger Management is about finding other more positive ways to communicate and express your feelings and opinions.

When you get angry and lose control, you can feel powerless.

Learning how to express your anger in healthy ways gives you control and power over your own life

And you will feel better.

No longer will your anger control you.

You will control you anger.

  Trauma and Abuse


Do you often feel as if your past is affecting your present?

When it comes to emotional or psychological trauma, time does not heal, it conceals. When emotional wounds go unattended or intentionally ignored, the wound spreads, affecting more and more of your mind, emotions, and even your spirit.  _2_

Research shows that traumatic events that happen, especially in childhood will affect us even 50 or more years later. Trauma affects your brain, changes the actual wiring in your brain and therefore it affects your body, mind and spirit. And it changes how we see ourselves and the world around us, how we experience relationships and  most importantly how we view and experience our relationship with divine.   _2_

Trauma and Abuse Recovery addresses the root of the problem rather than treating the symptoms. It is healing from the inside out.

Trauma includes

  • Sexual Abuse
  • Physical abuse
  • Emotional Abuse
  • Emotional Neglect
  • Domestic Violence
  •  Codependency
  • Crime
  • Divorce
  • Sexual abuse
  • Rape
  • Incest
  • Living with an alcoholic
  • Adult children of alcoholics
  • Family violence
  • Child abuse
  • Disease
  •  Being in Combat

Trauma and Abuse Recovery  is a healing process that provides a structured way to resolve the trauma.  It takes place in three phases.

  • Establishing Safety
  • Reprocessing and Grieving
  • Reconnecting and Loving  _2_

 Every step of the therapeutic process is planned. Having a guide makes the journey safer than doing it alone.The structure prevents confusion and the experience of being emotionally overwhelmed  and  it replaces confusion with clarity giving the  client hope and a sense of safety.
