Anger Management

Anger should be felt and acknowledged in an appropriate manner. However, when the health and reactivity of the person experiencing the anger becomes increasingly heightened and the reactivity begins to negatively affect his/her ability to function on a day-to-day basis, then professional help may be recommended. Within the therapeutic process, the underlying issues that may be fueling the irrational emotional responses can be addressed with the goal of producing positive communication skills and behaviors. At the Duffy Counseling Center, we assist these individuals with identifying maladaptive thought processes that can lead to impulsive and irrational behaviors.
