Cherry Hill Anger Management Counseling

Anger Management Counseling – Therapists and Counselors in Cherry Hill, NJ

“For every minute you remain angry, you give up sixty seconds of peace of mind”
– Ralph Waldo Emerson

 

Anger is a strong feeling of irritation or discontentment. It is a completely normal, powerful, unpleasant emotion that we all have felt at times. It can be caused by an eternal or internal event. For example, certain events can trigger uncomfortable memories (internal) or a family member may upset you at a gathering (external). Anger can be unpredictable and characterized by antagonism towards someone or something. It can either give you a way to express negative feelings or motivate you to find solutions, but excessive anger can harm your physical and mental health (APA, Psychology Topic). It can result in acts of violence or be damaging to the individual and their relationships. The instinctive way we might respond to anger is by participating in aggressive behavior. Naturally, anger is an adaptive response to threats or attacks and can motivate to us to tap into our flight or fight mode when drastic measures occur. But there are healthy ways of exerting this heavy emotion.

“Anger and intolerance are the enemies of correct understanding”
– Mahatma Gandhi

Anger management counseling is applied when an individual is unable to control their response in situations. Our counselors are equipped with techniques that can help you express anger in a healthy manner and learn how to control your response. Anger can impact physically and emotionally. Once engaged with flight or fight behavior, adrenaline kicks into high gear and energy hormones, heart rate and blood pressure increases, making it difficult to remain calm. You can learn how to dodge negative results by engaging in cognitive restructuring and problem solving. Defeat anger by starting with awareness. Once you are aware of what is most likely causing this intense emotion, you can define the primary trigger. You will be able to determine when you often experience it and how to express it properly. Gain control of your temperament, and increase your awareness when anger is likely to rise. Learn how to respond with constructive energy rather than react negatively and avoid triggers. Our counselors are here for you! Contact us at Thriveworks Cherry Hill Anger Management Counseling today so we can schedule you with a professional who can guide you in productively expressing anger!

“When I am angry I can write, pray, and preach well, for then my whole temperament is quickened, my understanding sharpened, and all mundane vexations and temptations are gone”
– Martin Luther

Thriveworks Review

★★★★★
I have been meeting with Greg Miller since February. His kindness, compassion and down to earth approach has helped me to achieve positive changes for my mental well-being. Meeting with Greg each week has allowed me to discuss problems both big and small and to feel more secure with my self-agency, to feel acceptance in my relationships, and to work on myself (self-confidence, career goals, etc.). I highly recommend Greg (as well as Thrive-works) to any individual seeking mental health services.

Collin Meyer

★★★★★
I met Collin Meyer less than 5 years ago and in that short time, I have come to know him as a man of incredible integrity and many, many talents. What sets Collin apart from so many other people is his willingness to share his talents and our non profit has been the recipient of that generosity. He has a great sense of humor and deep respect for the beliefs of others.

Beyond a “therapist”

★★★★★
I cannot say enough wonderful things about Rachel. I've been in therapy for most of my (talking) life, and only she has helped me, connected with me, cooperated with me, guided me, in a way I never thought possible. There is a Hebrew word, "Bashe'rt" - It roughly means, "meant to be". Our meeting was Bashe'rt. She was the light during a very dark time and continues to be the torch leading the way. Rachel is first and foremost, genuine and kind. She remembers just about everything (so no need to repeat yourself), she has a great sense of humor, which balances perfectly with her professionalism, and counseling expertise. Yet, she is also very compassionate and understanding. She makes me feel safe, even if we do a tele-session. If I'm feeling overwhelmed in any way, she is able to help me ground myself and relax, in under 3 minutes. Seriously. She's THAT good. There is a rating scale below, asking to rate 1-5 *... 5 being the best option, yet not a nearly high enough number to rate Rachel. (On a completely different note, the building's bathrooms are "meh". I just suggest pre-bathrooming before you come for a session.)
