Get matched with an anger management therapist near you

Anger is a healthy, normal reaction to mistreatment, frustration, and upsetting situations. However, if you feel angry all the time and can see anger causing destruction in your life, it’s time to seek help from an experienced therapist you can trust. 

Does your anger often get the best of you? 

If you struggle with chronic or explosive anger, you might feel like a ticking time bomb that can explode at any moment. You may have tried to “just calm down” or to avoid situations that make you angry, but once something triggers your anger, you feel overwhelmed by emotion and struggle to control your response. 

There are many unhealthy ways people react to angry feelings, including yelling, name-calling, hitting, stonewalling, or being passive-aggressive. If you’ve struggled with anger for some time, you’ve likely had to deal with the repercussions of resentful or explosive behavior in the past, such as: 

  • Job loss due to an outburst 
  • Cut ties with friends or family 
  • Divorce or relationship issues 
  • Self-destructive behavior 
  • Chronic drinking or drug issues 
  • Physical or emotional abuse 
  • Destruction of property 
  • Assault charges or past arrests

The goals of anger management therapy 

The primary goal of anger management is to help you identify what causes your angry feelings, decrease the intensity of your anger, and address destructive behaviors caused by your anger. When you meet with your Ellie therapist, you’ll learn how to: 

  • Become more aware of situations or people that cause you to feel angry through reflection, journaling, or other mood-tracking methods. 
  • Identify if an underlying issue, such as a mental health disorder or physical condition, is contributing to your anger. 
  • Recognize when you are beginning to feel angry and learn strategies on how to cope or revert your attention to avoid destructive behavior. 
  • Learn to accept anger as a healthy emotion that will pass, rather than becoming overwhelmed when you feel anger. 
  • Improve interpersonal, communication, and relational skills to help reduce hurtful actions toward others.
