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.

— Steve Helsel, Licensed Professional Counselor in Commerce Charter Township, MI

Anger is a powerful, often maligned phenomenon. It is a natural response to perceived or real threat that helps us get distance or control over it. Always meaningful, taboo for many, and sometimes destructive, understanding anger, where it comes from, what it is for is a focus of my practice, as is helping clients learn effective tools for navigating anger, even allowing it to be a useful guide.

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.

— Katherine Plambeck, Clinical Psychologist in Berkeley, CA

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.

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 in LAS VEGAS, NV

I work to help clients understand that anger is a normal human emotion that must be expressed in a healthy and productive way. I explore anger triggers, unhealthy thought patterns that contribute to anger and identify ways to control or reduce angry outbursts. Everyone wants to feel heard but it is up to the individual to speak in a way that others can receive you. This does not mean that they will agree with you but it opens the door to understanding.

— Sherl Craft, Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Pensacola, FL

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.

Anger can be one of the most difficult emotions to navigate. Out of control anger is surprisingly common. It can affect our relationships, careers, and even our health. Anger is a normal human emotion. I can show you how to use anger in a constructive, relationship building way as opposed to suppressing it or being out of control. I can show you how smart your anger is, through emotional management counseling. Most importantly, I don’t want you to give up your anger.
