Starting Anger management therapy

Can you get a therapist for anger issues?

They're given clear instructions to improve their angry behavior as well as a safe space for opening up about their emotions.

How does anger management therapy work?

Once an individual's triggers are identified, anger management therapy focuses on helping the individual process and respond to these emotions in a more positive and productive manner. The anger management therapist will provide coping strategies and ultimately help their client take back control of their anger.

What are the 5 keys to controlling anger?

The five 5 keys to mastering anger includes identifying triggers, pausing before reacting, calmly expressing emotions, discovering constructive outlets for frustration, and seeking professional assistance if necessary. Acquiring these skills through Anger management therapy empowers individuals to effectively manage and navigate their anger.

Need more help deciding?

We all encounter major obstacles in life—and sometimes we get in our own way. For example, those with anger issues tend to react quickly in the heat of the moment, are more likely to engage in physical violence, and in turn, they hurt important areas of life including their career and relationships with loved ones. If your anger issues are getting in your way of living a happy, healthy life with a successful career and fulfilling relationships, consider anger management. Thriveworks Bethesda provides anger management services, which is led by skilled, caring mental health professionals. So, if you are in the Montgomery area, consider working with a Thriveworks Bethesda therapist.

Do I Have Anger Issues? Should I Get Anger Management Help?

We all get angry from time to time. Think: You’re running late to work when your tire blows out; you say “no” when your sister asks if she can borrow your sweater but she wears it anyway; your boss yells at you for something that you didn’t do; your cable goes out during the Superbowl. All of these events can evoke anger—however, that does not mean that two people will respond in the same way to the same infuriating situation. For example, one person might feel angry but react calmly when their tire blows out. They know exactly what to do; this is why their dad showed them how to change a tire! Another individual would let that anger take over. Instead of sucking it up and changing their tire, they pound on their steering wheel and scream.

How do you react in infuriating situations? Are you more like the first person or the second person? If you have trouble controlling your anger and responding well in frustrating situations, you could probably benefit from anger management help. If you’re still uncertain about whether you have anger issues, consult the following:

  • You’re always at the center of arguments with friends and family
  • You feel like you’re angry on a daily basis
  • You engage in physical violence when you feel angry
  • You exhibit reckless or disruptive behavior like slamming doors

If the above resonates with you, you might have some anger issues that need to be resolved. The good news is that you have found the right place! If you are in Montgomery County, reach out to Thriveworks Bethesda to schedule an anger management appointment. We care about your health, happiness, and success. Let us help you live your optimal life!

What Is Anger Management? Can Anger Therapy Help Me?

Anger issues are not fun to deal with—are any issues fun to deal with? However, it is necessary to correct any inappropriate behavior you may be engaging in due to your out-of-control anger. The anger management specialists at Thriveworks Bethesda will help you understand why you feel so angry, how your angry expressions are harmful to you and others, and most importantly, how you can process and communicate your angry emotions.

The anger professionals at Thriveworks Bethesda do not expect you to stop feeling angry altogether. This is impossible, as every single human being experiences anger from time to time. The real goal is to help you manage this difficult emotion in a healthier way.

I couldn't have asked for a better therapist. Nina Zuriff is such a good fit for me. She is very knowledgeable and compassionate. She has really helped me cope with this very hard time I am currently experiencing and makes herself reachable should an emergency arise. I am very happy I selected Nina. I would highly recommend her to anyone.
