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 that we all experience but for some it can turn into destructive actions. I specialize in using mindfulness-based techniques to help my clients shift from destructive patterns to effective actions and connection with those who are important. I have facilitated Anger Management groups in jails and health care centers, in addition to working with countless individuals to make meaningful change in reducing problematic anger.

— Ciara Bogdanovic, Associate Marriage & Family Therapist in Beverly Hills, CA

You might not understand why you feel so angry or irritable all the time. It just explodes and then you find yourself in trouble, hurting the ones you love, or just shutting down. You're sick of it, but you don't know how to change things. You feel stuck. Here's the thing: anger is rarely the real issue. Most times, there's something else underneath. Maybe you went through something hard. Maybe you are actually sad or scared. Once we understand the cause, we can create real changes for you.

— Katy Harmon, Licensed Clinical Social Worker - Candidate in Austin, TX

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

Anger is a secondary emotion to Anxiety. When we feel threatened, we can enter one of our survival mechanisms, "fight" mode which produces anger. I start by taking the time to explore the root cause of anger and increase your awareness of your internal response with tangible coping skills. This supports you in reducing shame and guilt surrounding anger as well as increases your ability to regulate and communicate your emotions with confidence.

— Ashley Johns Hinder, Licensed Clinical Social Worker

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

Your anger is resulting in problems at work and with those in your personal life. You hear from others that they have to “tiptoe” around you because they never know if you will start yelling or not. Anger in and of itself isn’t bad, it’s how we handle it that can be problematic. Anger is a necessary emotion, it is a biological and natural response to perceived threats around us. Getting rid of it altogether is not the goal, learning to control the anger is. I can help you get to that control

— Katherine Boelts, Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in Mission Viejo, CA 92691, CA

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.

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.

— Miri Taub, Clinical Social Worker

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.
