— Kevin Rose, Therapist in Allen Park, MI

Being able to work through anger with clients requires an understanding of trauma. I find that anger is usually just the "tip of the iceberg." There is usually a lot of other pain (sadness, fear, rejection, not having had one's needs met) underneath the anger outbursts/anger turned inside in the form of depression. I am willing to listen & to offer compassion. I'm also willing to help clients learn how to do the body work- Emotion Regulation, Distress Tolerance, Grounding, Deep Breath Work...

My goal in treating anger is to identify the root cause of the anger. So many people get lost in their anger that they can overlook the source of that anger. I want to help you identify the source of that anger. Once we identify the source behind your anger we can learn how to manage the anger and learn a new way of handling these emotions.

— Frank Thewes, Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Princeton, NJ

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 that affects our mental and physical health, strains or damages relationships, hurts our ability to perform, and diminishes the way we see ourselves. I help people for whom anger has become a problem through developing behavioral and emotional self-awareness, understanding about triggers and underlying causes (including historical trauma), and effective coping skills (aka “tools”) that can help them manage their anger reactions in more constructive ways.

— Dr. Robert Nemerovski, Psy.D., Clinical Psychologist in San Rafael, CA

Recognize, understand and process your emotions in a healthier manner. This includes understanding the connection between past traumatic experiences and your expression of anger. Increase your ability to embrace your emotions instead of run from them. Increase your ability to be more assertive.

Anger is such an important and understandable emotion. It is NOT your fault. Anger comes when we are upset by someone else's actions/behaviors. Let's work together to understand why it is coming up for you and why we might need to learn more about the underpinnings so that it is not a barrier to your goals future. We can work through anger. Even when it is strong.

— Anna Jablonski, Licensed Professional Counselor Associate in ,

In recent years I have become more aware of MY OWN history, in my teens/20s, of overreacting and letting people get under my skin. And I have realized that we must treat others with compassion and not allow ourselves to fly off the handle at every provocation. What purpose, after all, does it serve to get angry at bad restaurant service, or at the police officer who ticketed you for speeding? Do you really want people seeing you in that state, causing them to feel uncomfortable and to avoid you?

— Howard Gofstein, Licensed Professional Counselor in Bingham Farms, MI
