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 a normal emotional state that everybody experiences on occasion. For some, however, anger gets out of control and begins to seriously affect quality of life.

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.

Maybe you are looking for help because your child slams doors, fights with their siblings, yells at you or won’t talk to you.

Our interactions can be stressful in so many ways. Having someone else dependent on you is especially stressful. This stress can eat away at your physical and emotional health. Anger can be very destructive to relationships too. Many people need help learning how to effectively process, and even use anger and frustration in ways that can help promote better understanding and cooperation, rather than a spiral of increasing conflict, hurt feelings and dysfunctional relationships.

— Susan Rooney, Counselor in Portland, OR

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.

— Robert Nemerovski. Psy.D., Clinical Psychologist in Kentfield, CA

It might seem that your anger takes control - and sometimes it does. Rather than try to push the anger away by force, there is a way to actually listen to what it has to say. Turns out, anger - like all strong emotions - really wants to be heard. When we do that, it opens up new ways to work with the anger and leads to a new relationship with the angry parts of you. As this relationship develops, the anger quiets down and it gets easier and easier for you to work with it, not against it.

— Paul Abodeely, Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in Seattle, WA

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.

Everything irritates you. You don’t want to be irritated–you just are. Drivers piss you off, not being able to relax, and relationships. You deserve peace. Mood disorders, anxiety, brain injury, or some other issue may be contributing to your anger, but whatever the cause, it is a brain thing. Neurofeedback will help calm the central nervous system and your brain.

Anger is a secondary emotion. This means that there are usually some other underlying feelings that are pushing it to the surface. This can be fear, sadness or humiliation. Also how we analyze what is going on outside of us, effects how we feel and act. Sometimes deep rooted issues are impacting our emotions. There are some strategies that can be used to help you regain control of your emotions.
