To give a specific example, PTSD tends to generate angry people. If you find yourself going through the work day and suddenly a person says something fairly mundane to you and suddenly you want to dump your coffee on them, you may have been triggered. I love helping clients name their triggers and begin to cope and even heal from their anger triggers.

One of the first steps in working with chronic anger and irritability is to rule out factors such as depression or even brain trauma and dementia. Once those factors are ruled out, it is important to look for patterns when anger flareups occur, and to increase awareness of "early warning signs" and retrain the body to respond to symptoms of "flooding" (increased blood pressure, heart rate, etc.) with calming strategies (deep breathing exercises and mindfullness practices). Finally, looking at thoughts and beliefs that contribute to feeling angry can help change the frequency and intensity of anger.

Anger is good! This may seem contrary to what you've always believed about anger. You've probably spent a lot of time and energy trying to get rid of it. That would be a big mistake. Did you know that God was angry at times? If God was angry, how could it be wrong to feel anger? I propose the issue is not in the emotion itself, but in how we express it. You'll benefit from counseling for anger issues by learning healthy ways to use your anger, becoming more emotionally insightful, and developing skills to become connected deeper relationally.

I have never met a person who doesn't have some reason to be angry. But, I have also seen much displaced anger, rage disproportunate to the situation at hand and relationships destroyed due to anger. If your anger is bothering you and getting between you and the people you love, call me today. I have been able to help many people see where their anger may originate and better navigate their emotions, thoughts and behaviors. There is hope for those who call.

Our emotions are a significant part of what makes us human. While rage can derail healthy relationships, there is a message to be heard and understood by the distress you are experiencing. I desire to walk alongside you to provide practical strategies towards alleviating emotional tidal waves, as well as hopeful insight into the deeper reasons underlying your distress.

Anger is an emotion, but experiencing anger is usually not the problem. The problem with anger is usually the way it is expressed through inadequate or unhealthy coping behaviors. People can benefit from anger management when they are willing to address the damage their anger has caused them and how it has hurt or interfered in other situations. When one is willing to learn about and practice healthy coping skills when experiencing anger, relationships can begin to function better and great progress can be achieved.

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

Everyone gets angry at times, but some people struggle with aggression that can interfere with their ability to have healthy relationships. Anger can stem from many things but domestic violence, substance abuse and trauma are the most common. I use a cognitive-behavioral approach to help clients understand what is fueling their anger and then learn positive coping skills to manage those emotions.
