Many of us learn things about our anger and the role it should play in our lives from family and society. For some of us, our unhealthy relationship with anger may lead to emotional or physical harm to ourselves or others and it can often be difficult to find therapy that addresses anger issues that holds us accountable while at the same time doesn’t stigmatize how we feel.
Although anger-focused counseling is often referred to as anger management, often developing a healthy relationship to anger and learning to appreciate its power to keep us safe and connected is a major focus when I work with clients.
I have worked with a broad, diverse group of individuals who have struggled with anger throughout my career, which has included the following:
- Violent offenders
- People who display bullying behaviors
- People affected by behavioral changes associated with traumatic brain injury
- People who experience behavioral changes associated with posttraumatic stress
- People experiencing substance dependency or undergoing recovery
- People with cognitive or mental health issues that make it difficult to control anger
