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 can arise from many different sources. In our society, we are taught to stuff emotions and when we don't acknowledge them and work through them, the emotions can re-emerge at a later date, often in inappropriate ways. When clients meet with me we discuss how they are currently exhibiting anger as well as when they first started having anger outbursts. Often, the origin may be years or even decades old. When that initiating event is worked through, the anger can be released.

Emotions like anger are not good or bad, the way we choose to manage them can however have a positive or negative outcome. Emotional regulation can help someone channel anger so that they are more assertive. Lack of regulation can lead to aggression & impact your relationship with the people around you. Bottling up emotions can lead to physical health issues. I help individuals manage anger & other emotions more effectively.

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.

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 powerful, and often misunderstood emotion. The reality is that it is a natural, necessary part of all of our experience! It's what we DO with it, how we interact with it, and what we believe about it that may or may not create unnecessary challenges and barriers in our lives. "I'm just a soul whose intentions are good Oh lord, please don't let me be misunderstood." ― The Animals, 1965

— Stephanie Van Fossen, Counselor

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.

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

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

— Dr. Vicki D. Coleman, Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor in Las Vegas, NV

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

Stress can often lead to frustration and anger. How we cope with our anger determines our outcomes personally, professionally and in our relationships. Understanding anger and how to manage it becomes vital to our daily survival.
