Anger really isn't the problem. It's the symptom. If you deal with the problem, the anger goes away; at least in it's destructive form. We all have anger. How much, what we hope to accomplish, and the harm it does is the real problem. Anger is either about hurt or fear. It reveals a threat to us, even in hurt. There is an underlying paradigm that we will shift to deal with it.

For some people, anger is an emotion that is easier to express, compared to worry, fear, anxiety, sadness, depression, etc. However, lashing out verbally and/or physically, to others and/or property creates another layer of issues. This can result in problems with the law, failed marriages, lost jobs, etc. Recognizing the emotions underling the anger, and feeding into the anger, is an essential piece in mental health recovery. Individual therapy builds insight into our complex emotions, helps us cope with the sources and triggers of these emotions, and rebuilds from the consequences of our past choices.

Anger is a natural human emotion, although a tricky one. Anger is often unknowingly a defense against a deeper emotion, such as hurt, pain, grief, etc. Anger serves as a great disguise for these other emotions and often will remain unresolved and will continue to cause trouble in everyday life until the deeper emotions are addressed. Anger doesn't have to control your life any longer, let's work through this together.

Anger is an extremely important emotion. There's nothing wrong with feeling angry, it's what we do with our anger that gets us in trouble. If you are angry that is a sign of distress. You aren't angry without a reason. I would like to be able to help you understand those reasons and find a place for your anger. I will help you to gain insight into the reasons you are angry and find healthy ways in which to communicate and manage your anger so that it doesn't keep you from the relationships that you desire or interfere and disrupt your life.

Anger issues can become overwhelming to both you and those who experience it with you. Simply put, anger can simply be a struggle to allow the grief and anxiety of life to run it's course through the redeeming work of God. This is why, although it can seem too much to control, it's not too much for God. The most helpful way I've found in making progress with anger issues is moving clients to a place of not only being open and honest about the struggle, but also beginning to accept it for what it is and finding comfort and control in that place of acceptance. It's then through a heart of confession and reorientation to what is so angering, that true and fruitful healing can begin to occur.
