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. The difference is that anger can lead to aggression (shout out to those that thought I would say hate; #yoda). My approach to anger takes a look at how we express this emotion and how frequently it turns into aggression. By understanding the cause of anger, how it manifests and how often it becomes aggression, we begin to build a foundation that allows the experience of emotions in a healthier, more sustainable way.

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.

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.

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.

— Marc Heuser, Counselor in Golden, CO

Anger often troubles us. And yet, it is often an emotion that needs to be heard respectively. Therapeutic relationship enables us to make sense of our anger - where it comes from, what is portrays, and where it guides us.

Anger. It's something that a lot of us deal with- whether it's from you or from someone you care for and you just happen to be in the "Backblast Area". It effects us in some pretty major ways, like- 1. "Road Rage" 2. Snapping at family members/friends/co-workers 3. Thinking "People piss me off because they're stupid" 4. Feeling impatient with people then later wondering "Why did I do that?" Let's talk about those situations and figure out what to do about it.

— Donald McCasland, Licensed 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.

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.

Anger is a powerful emotion AND it's an energy we feel strongly in our bodies. The feeling of anger can often tell us that something isn't right in the current moment. It may also be the result of unmet needs that culminated in feelings of anger for you as a young child. When unaddressed, this anger continues into adulthood. There are many ways that anger can be addressed - through changing thoughts & beliefs, learning to express feelings & needs and more.
