Anger Issues

Blowing up or losing your cool once in a while doesn’t necessarily mean you have an anger issue. But if you find yourself experiencing long-term feelings of anger or rage, which may also include aggressive, violent or self-destructive behaviors, you may be facing an anger management issue. Those experiencing anger issues may also have physical symptoms including high blood pressure, headaches, or fatigue. Whether your anger issue is caused by stress, genetics, hormones or your current environment, you don’t have to figure it out alone. Contact one of our specialists today.

Personally, anger is my favorite emotion, which leaves me with many cross-eyed looks. However, I enjoy working with anger because it is an honest and genuine emotion. We can work together to uncover your source(s) of anger and learn what to do with it so that it does not get in your way any longer.

— Jeremy Henderson-Teelucksingh, Counselor

Anger is a normal, healthy emotion, neither good nor bad. Like any emotion, it conveys a message, telling you that a situation is upsetting, unjust, or threatening. If your reaction to anger is to explode, however, that message never has a chance to be conveyed. So, while it’s perfectly normal to become upset how we deal with that anger really decides the outcome. I am adept at helping others manage this in a new way.

Anger. It's something that a lot of us deal with- whether it's from you or from someone you care for and you just happen to be in the "Backblast Area". It effects us in some pretty major ways, like- 1. "Road Rage" 2. Snapping at family members/friends/co-workers 3. Thinking "People piss me off because they're stupid" 4. Feeling impatient with people then later wondering "Why did I do that?" Let's talk about those situations and figure out what to do about it.

Irritability and anger is often triggered by anxiety, relationship difficulties, job stress, feeling unappreciated/disrespected, and/or insomnia. Identifying the underlying cause of your anger is the first step in understanding and managing your anger. I help to treat anger at its root cause, by challenging the cognitive distortions associated with your anger.

— Kirsten Hardy, Clinical Social Worker

I honestly feel that we all have a lot to be angry about. I also believe that we can often misdirect our anger towards the people we love the most. If you find yourself pissed off most of the time, let me help you unpack that. There is a reason why and we'll figure it out together.

— Angie Dion, Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

I have worked with court ordered and self admitted persons in the field of domestic violence and anger management. I was formally trained to address the cycle of violence and expression of anger. I also believe that anger is a secondary emotion that protects the individual from more vulnerable emotions, so part of the therapeutic process is addressing the underlying feelings that exist in the individual and in their relationships.

— Marc Heuser, Counselor in Golden, CO

I have worked with court ordered, and self admitted people in the areas of anger management and domestic violence. During treatment we look at strategies for self awareness around the expressions of anger, and examine healthy relationships. Also it is believed that anger is a secondary emotion that often avoids the more vulnerable feelings. So in our work together, we create safety to address the root, and not only expressions of anger and rage.

— Marc Heuser, Counselor in Golden, CO
