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 and it isn’t something to shy away from. It is something that can be managed. If anger is a problem for you interfering with your relationships at home, school, work or a combination of them you can believe that your life situations will improve as you learn how to manage your anger. I have experience working with angry adolescents, angry couples, angry individuals (men & women), those who who are self medicating and those who are not. Anger is an energy and when expressed and managed well it stops being harmful and can in fact be beneficial

Anger is a normal human emotion that warns us that something is being done to us that is threatening, unjust, or gets in the way of getting our needs met. Of course, we can become angry at ourselves for a variety of reasons. Anger by nature is not a “problem” nor does it always require “anger management.” Unfortunately, for many people, anger can become a problem . I help people for whom anger has become a problem through developing behavioral and emotional self-awareness, understanding about triggers and underlying causes, and effective coping skills (aka “tools”) that can help them manage their anger reactions in more constructive ways.

I specialize in navigating the realm of reactive emotions like Anger. I believe that behind most anger is a sense of threat and vulnerability as well as a deep grief. In working with Anger I utilize the emotion as a coping mechanism from where we can begin to ask questions to understand its function in life, and slowly learn to replace it with emotions that will facilitate more harmony and growth in our personal life and relational life.
