Emotional Extremes

Anxiety, depression and the emotional and physical consequences of excessive stress are issues I address in my practice on an ongoing basis.
Lately, I’ve seen people who present symptoms of uncontrollable rage. Anger and rage can be permanently diminished and controlled, but people suffering from rage are proving challenging to treat. The emotions with the potential to do the most harm are precisely the emotions the client is reluctant to change. Rage becomes a defense mechanism intrinsic to their identity. With compassion and determination client and therapist can rewire the brain in such a way that rage doesn’t become the default emotion.
