Anger is a normal human emotion that can be aroused when we feel threatened or those we care about are threatened. The feeling of anger serves a purpose in increasing our energy and empowering us to defend ourselves against an attack or other perceived danger. Anger can become problematic when people fail to act responsibly in how they express this emotion. As a result anger is often viewed as a negative or bad emotion. At Capital Counseling, our anger management services aim to develop a set of skills that responsible people use to address the perceived threat in a manner that resolves the issue constructively without creating damage or harm.

Anger is not necessarily bad. It is the instinctual response of being interrupted in the pursuit of a goal. We all need that upsurge of energy to push back when we feel we are pushed or deprived or hurt. But because anger is a very powerful emotional expression it can be hurtful to others or scary or dangerous. Therefore we need to be able to manage our anger in a productive and problem solving way rather than making things worse or even abusive to others. My approach in working with you is to explore your individual situation and offer tools to help you understand your anger and learn to manage it effectively.
