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 powerful emotion. If we look at emotions as "information" that our brain and heart are trying to share, anger is usually a result of having been violated in some way. Is anger good? bad? dangerous? powerful? Anger can be a bit of everything. The real question one might ask themselves is, "Do I control my anger or does my anger control me?" Offering a combination of talk therapy and art directives in the therapy room can allow people to "own" their anger in a non judgmental and life transforming way. This might sound like an outrageous and unsubstantiated claim to make, but having witnessed the transformation thousands of times, I can attest to the power of communicating emotions

One of my favorite play therapy activities for managing anger is "The Angry Kleenex Game." It's a popular favorite of children, teens and adults, involving the use of paper, colored pencils and wet Kleenex. I can't wait to share it with you! We also teach clients core DBT skills of Emotion Regulation and Interpersonal Effectiveness, helping clients to focus on the big picture.

Is your anger causing difficult consequences in your life? Many therapists can assist with its management, but I would like to also help with exploring the reason your anger gets bigger than others. Anger says "we are being violated", so what is this sense of violation. Does it spring from some situation from the past? Your anger is real, and makes sense in the context of your life experience. It is your "normal." Together we may be able to create a new normal. A personal message to men; you guys can do this too, and real strength comes from being able to accept help when we need it. Do this for yourself, do this for those you love, and never want to unintentionally hurt again.

Licensed Professional Counselor

After hearing a person's story, my usual response to "I have an anger problem" is, "you don't have an anger problem, you have not been related to as you should have been during key times your life". Anger is largely about emotional regulation (feeling balanced on the inside). We grow in regulation through relationship. The brain grows new paths and ways of operating when in an attuned, empathic relationship with another. I work from an empathic standpoint where insight is not the main goal (although that certainly happens), rather formative moments of feeling tuned into, deeply understood and emotionally held are. These offer new emotional experiences that catalyzes growth & healing.

We all get angry from time to time. Anger is a natural emotion everyone experiences. The concern is in how a person expresses or deals with that anger. Maybe you yell, or throw things or even physically fight. All emotions are normal, it is when they impede our daily functioning that they become a problem. Typically anger is a secondary emotion to fear or anxiety. I can help you understand what the root of your anger is and how you can manage it.

Diane Schmidt, LSCSW

Licensed Specialist Clinical Social Worker

Within Driving Distance of Shawnee, KS

Anger is a valid emotion and it can prompt us to be constructive or destructive. If your anger is an issue in your work, relationships or social life, you may want to consider addressing. Often times our anger is a secondary emotion masking what a person is truly feeling. Oftentimes the person is not even aware of what the underlying feeling is. Together we will assess what is currently happening and what has occurred in the past as our past unresolved experiences and emotions play into our present life. We will then formulate a plan to utilize the emotion in a healthy manner and/or work to resolve the issue(s).

Walt Moon, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

Anger is a powerful emotion that can quickly become destructive for you and those around you. The problem is that anger can be a cover for deeper and less comfortable emotions like feeling powerless, frustrated, hurt, or disappointed. I can help you name the emotions that are driving your anger. Together, we can face those emotions and learn how to let go of your anger all together.

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.

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.
