I have been in practice as a counselor for over 38 years. I have published two books on anger and 10 audio CD programs on anger, health and building healthy relationships. I have helped thousands of people overcome their anger by healing the cause instead of just treating the symptoms. I have a positive approach, and believe in the basic goodness of each person. Anger is basically healthy, but when it is expressed in unhealthy ways it is very destructive, and that's why most people think anger is bad. Learning to understand and accept yourself for who you are is the first step to healing and recovery from anger issues.

I like helping people understand that they are not bad or wrong for feeling angry. Most folks feel a sense of relief when they realize that there are good reasons for their anger, and once those are understood, they're on the road to healing and learning the skills for healthy anger management.
I would like for everyone (even some professionals) to understand that anger is a natural, healthy emotion that can be a part of success and positive relationships as long as it is expressed in healthy ways.
While unhealthy anger can destroy your health, your happiness and your relationships, it's also important to know that healthy anger can fuel positive, compassionate and effective action.
People often equate anger with violence, and this is just not accurate. A healthy person gets angry and takes positive, effective action to resolve problems. Acts of violence come out of a sense of helplessness, confusion, rage and mental disturbance, which are far more complex than the basic emotion of anger.
