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.

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.

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.
