Excessive anger can make us sick, not only mentally, but physically. In fact, millions of Americans experience the side effects of chronic anger in the form of illnesses, drug and alcohol addiction, headaches, domestic violence and depression just to name a few. Anger can also be a symptom of depression. Angry outbursts can prevent us from having good relationships with others and feeling good about ourselves. On the other hand, learning to manage our anger can enhance our emotional well being and lead to a healthier, happier life.

REASONS FOR ANGER MANAGEMENT
People are motivated to seek out anger management for a variety of reasons, from being mandated to do so, to being asked by a loved one to seek help. Whatever the motivation, the issue is nearly always experiencing anger too often. Keeping it pinned up inside of you only makes it feel like you’re going to blow up. Letting it out in an unhealthy way puts others on edge and pushes them away. Anger is often considered a negative emotion that is best avoided. However, the truth is that anger is a normal emotion and can be experienced in a healthy way. We will work with you, taking into account your reason for seeking therapy, and together create a plan to help you manage your anger.
