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.

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.
