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.

Anger is an emotion. The difference is that anger can lead to aggression (shout out to those that thought I would say hate; #yoda). My approach to anger takes a look at how we express this emotion and how frequently it turns into aggression. By understanding the cause of anger, how it manifests and how often it becomes aggression, we begin to build a foundation that allows the experience of emotions in a healthier, more sustainable way.

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.

Anger can arise from many different sources. In our society, we are taught to stuff emotions and when we don't acknowledge them and work through them, the emotions can re-emerge at a later date, often in inappropriate ways. When clients meet with me we discuss how they are currently exhibiting anger as well as when they first started having anger outbursts. Often, the origin may be years or even decades old. When that initiating event is worked through, the anger can be released.

Crack the Code and lead the way to better relationships. It’s natural to feel angry and it's easy to become defensive when your spouse is angry with you. We all make mistakes. After some time in the group you won't take it so personally anymore. You'll see more options than you do now about how you can react. We can help you learn how to repair mistakes.

— Gina Metroff, Counselor in Phoenix, AZ

Anger is one of the most typical complaints I hear about from my clients. Their spouse or loved ones have told them many times that they have an "anger issue". Often my clients will say "I'm just not myself anymore and I'm snapping at everyone and everything." We get right in there to identify what may be happening "underneath the hood of the engine" that is driving this nasty side effect.

— Dr. Carolyn Becker, Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in Fort Worth, TX

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.
