For many couples, learning to understand anger and treat it differently when it occurs is one key to improving their marriage or relationship. Anger is a natural emotion that happens when something important to us isn't going our way. But it often leads to fights in relationships, because couples continue trying to 'solve their differences' even after anger has taken over. Once emotion has taken over, it's nearly impossible to think clearly or hear new ideas. Counseling helps you to understand your anger AND learn what you can do to avoid being automatically triggered into old 'anger habits'.

It is often said that anger is a secondary emotion; that there is more than the behavior that is seen at the surface. Through a client's story is where the root of the emotion exists. With proper guidance and support it is possible to gain insight into triggers, warning signs and learn alternative safe coping skills. Individuals deserve the confidence in knowing that you are in charge of your emotions and responses to them. Increased awareness and a plan of action can be key in managing emotional reactions out of anger. There is also room for growth in exploring the roots of persistent anger. Whether it be learned behavior, or unmet emotional needs from the past, you can thrive.
