If you feel that your anger is out of control, if it is having an impact on your relationships and on important parts of your life, you might consider counseling to learn how to better handle it. The goal of anger management is to reduce both your emotional feelings and the physiological arousal that anger causes. You can’t get rid of or avoid the things or the people that enrage you, nor can you change them, but you can learn to control your reactions. Controlling your angry responses can keep them from making you even more unhappy in the long run. At Goodman Psychologist Associates, we can work with you to develop a range of techniques for changing your thinking and your behavior.
