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.

I honestly feel that we all have a lot to be angry about. I also believe that we can often misdirect our anger towards the people we love the most. If you find yourself pissed off most of the time, let me help you unpack that. There is a reason why and we'll figure it out together.

— Angie Dion, Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Anger can feel like one of the most isolating emotions we have. Sometimes anger is explosive, passive-aggressive, or targeted inwards. And if we allow it, it can even come to define who we are with others and to ourselves. I specialize in working with anger because I believe it is one of the least understood and shamed emotions we have. My goal in working with you is to develop mindfulness and eventually how to compassionately respond to it.

Many individuals may be unaware that anger serves as a messenger emotion. Anger is a primary emotion that encompasses various subsystems of emotions.

There are a multitude of reasons that can trigger anger; however, therapy can equip you with valuable techniques to gain a deeper understanding of the underlying causes driving your anger.

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 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.
