Anger is simply another form of pain. In my office you can understand a better way of dealing with your anger by understanding what drives it. I give free assessments in session to help you to understand and address your anger management. I have a focus on men in particular, as society has told men for years that anger is the "acceptable" way of showing emotion. Male or female, I can help you learn to control your anger.

Some of the latest studies suggest that the root issue for those experiencing anger issues stem from a sense of self shame. I received training as an Anger Management Specialist I and am trained to work with individuals either through a 12 session course or a combination of coursework and individual therapy. I've found the latter to be very effective in helping people understand their anger response and develop other resources and outlets to manage that powerful emotion

Anger is a secondary emotion meaning arising when people experience an escalating series of intensifying emotions and with that intensification, feel out of control. To feel back in control, they "act out" by (in no particular order) shout, yell, swear, verbally abuse, break things, drive recklessly, threaten others, and generally drive everyone away from them over time. I teach people to honor their emotions and learn to catch the first inklings of impatience, frustrations, or whatever emotion becomes so uncomfortable for them that they flair. A desire to rid themselves of this potentially sociopathic behavior plus a curiosity to proactively observe themselves is necessary for progress.

Philip Kolba, MA

Psychotherapist

Online Therapist / Coach

I provide individual psychotherapy for anger management. Anger is normal emotion that everyone experiences. It becomes a problem when one expresses anger inappropriately or one lacks the proficiency to express any emotions but anger. I use Humanistic and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) to help my clients understand their anger, improve their emotional experience, and express their emotions in healthy ways. A healthy emotional life is the cornerstone of living a full and successful life.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Recognizing that you have a problem and that you need help is a positive step towards change. People with anger issues will often state that they have triggers. In our work together, we will identify what those triggers are, what to do when you are exposed to the trigger, healthy communication skills, healthy boundaries, and healthy relationships. As your therapist, I will walk by your side and help you identify when your thoughts do not reach logical conclusions. We will work together on re-framing how to respond to situations, learn how to relax and stay calm during situations that may be triggering. My approach is non-judgmental, warm and compassionate.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

950 Westbank Dr., Suite 104, Austin, Texas

I often describe anger as an "iceberg" emotion: it's what we see, but often it simply masks feelings underneath. My clients have voiced a sense of relief when they realize there are more manageable emotions underneath the anger and we work together to create new skills to manage anger in a healthy way. I commonly work with this issue in the child and adolescent populations.

Therapist/Licensed Professional Counselor

2525 Wallingwood Dr., Building 7-C, Suite 705P, Austin, Texas

I have had a great deal of experience working with children and adolescents who have difficulty managing their anger. We look at patterns of behavior. We explore what happened before they felt angry, their triggers. Then together we create a list of coping skills that they can use in place of the inappropriate behaviors they they were using. Since they helped me generate the list, they are invested in these coping skills. I find that many of my clients need a physical outlet for their anger.

Chris Kingsbury, MA, LPC, LMFT, NCC

Licensed Professional Counselor

11615 Angus Road, Suite 218, Austin, Texas

Anger is secondary to the hurts underneath; it is a symptom of past and current hurts causing the response. I work to help implement changes the client can make in their awareness and approach and concurrently, to help them understand and heal, remove their aloneness, recognize and meet needs and to care for the pain that is underlying. I help them take responsibility and to know they can heal and make changes.

Anger Therapist

Suzanne Freid, MA, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

Austin Counseling Center @ 1000 Westbank Drive, Suite 6-250, Austin, Texas

As a member of the National Anger Management Association and trained in techniques for dealing with anger management, I work with men and women to identify the source of the anger and provide training and counseling for dealing with anger in healthier ways. In addition, I will work with couples that are looking to identify strategies that address conflict through conflict/dispute resolution.

Anger Therapist

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

Grey Matters International and the work of Kevin J. Fleming, Ph.D approaches issues of anger management in a very humane yet fresh perspective. You see, anger is a normal emotion but it is the valence (intensity) as well as the coupling choice of what one does with this that is the problem. Telling someone to "not" do it or modifying behavior with a trite psychological plan that only breeds a compliant response is not the way to change anger. Brainwave optimization is a new cutting edge technology that allows one to rewire circuitry responsible for reactivity driving the anger.

Licensed Professional Counselor-Supervisor

Anger can be terrifying for everyone. Often we have not learned skills on how to handle anger appropriately and in a healthy manner. Anger itself is not a bad emotion, it is how we choose to use it that can cause problems. Sometimes when we react by yelling or shouting we may be perceiving a threat that is not there. When working with clients I help find out the triggers and emotions that bring out the anger and find better ways to express the anger. These skills can help everyone!

Anger can cause job loss, loss of friends, and loss of family. An angry individual may nag, bicker, fume, rant, fight, or just bang objects about. You feel angry in response to being hurt or threatened in some way. A boundary that you put in place is perceived as being crossed. How you act upon that anger or express that felt anger is where problems may appear. It is time to seek help when you feel you are out of control or others are asking you to change how you respond. Anger can be managed along with that internal agitation being lessened through learning relaxation skills, discovering the source of the anger, and working on more effective means to deal with those feelings.
