Starting Anger management therapy

Can you get a therapist for anger issues?

Yes, there are therapists who help with anger via Anger management therapy. It's a therapeutic process that an individual goes through to manage their anger and identify its triggers. 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.

What is the best therapy for anger management?

The best therapy for anger management often involves cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), which helps individuals identify and change patterns of thinking and behavior related to anger.

Is anger management therapy conducted in person or online?

Anger management therapy at Thriveworks is conducted both in person and online by video. We encourage you to choose the option that works best for you.

How many sessions do I need for anger management?

Often, Anger management therapy lasts between 4-6 weeks. However, it can last longer, dependent on the individual's needs.

Need more help deciding?

Anger is a necessary, unavoidable emotion. However, your reaction to angry feelings is crucial. Imagine: All week, you’ve been looking forward to watching your favorite college basketball team crush their biggest rival. Your team is projected to win, and you have no doubts they’ll make you proud. But then the game finally comes around, and your team is sucking. They’re missing every shot and they just aren’t gelling as the team you know and love. As the final buzzer sounds, you sink into the couch, angry and defeated.

You have a few options when it comes to how you react to and express your anger. You could scream, throw some pillows around, and pick a fight with your significant other who’s sitting in the other room. Or, you could lay your head back, close your eyes, and take a deep breath: “It sucks that my team lost, but it’s okay. In the grand scheme of things, it’s unimportant.” Obviously, the ideal reaction is the latter. However, controlling your anger in this way is easier said than done for a lot of people. Fortunately, there are anger experts who can help you adapt techniques for better controlling and managing your angry outbursts.

“You will not be punished for your anger; you will be punished by your anger.” –Buddha

I have been seeing a therapist via Thriveworks every other week for several months and I couldn't be happier. The intake form was easy to fill out and somehow managed to put me with someone who works perfectly with me. She works at my pace, she understands and works towards our goals, and she helps me to see things more clearly as we process the issues at hand. She never 'tells me' what the issue is or how to solve but instead she leads me there so I can see it on my own as that is much more effective. I was very nervous about online therapy but after this experience with Kristen, I would recommend it to everyone, regardless of the severity of their issues. Kristen is a true professional and can ebb and flow as I am ready to process things. She has been a game changer for me, my family, and my colleagues.

I am a survivor of childhood trauma. I've struggled with depression most of my life. Emily Frichtl has helped me in so many ways. I felt safe with her and over time I learned to trust her, which was hard for me. I still have a lot of work to do in learning to live with the things I've been through but I wouldn't be in a more accepting head space without the work we've done. I highly recommend her.

I have worked with Jennifer Brown for a number of years and have found her to be caring, compassionate, and conscientious. She has an empathetic personality and truly cares for her clients and wants what is best for them. One of her greatest skills is her ability to ask "the right question" to help you find YOUR correct answer. Her support during the time my Mom was passing helped me get through a very difficult time. No hesitancy in recommending.
