The goal of anger management is to assist a person in controlling their anger and aid in stressor identification. In anger management, people acquire techniques to help them maintain their composure. They could then respond to tense circumstances in a helpful, constructive way. Anger management lessens the physical and emotional excitation that rage may bring about. A mental health professional's assistance could be beneficial for anger management.

Aggression is one physiological outcome of people who wish to express their anger. It is an adaptive reaction that aids in preparing people to fend against threats. Anger inappropriately expressed could be a sign of a more deep-lying emotional or mental health problem. Therapy for anger management teaches clients to control their rage better. Furthermore, they can also determine the root cause of their anger. Some root causes of anger may be emotional trauma, addiction, and bereavement.

Individual or group therapy for anger control may be provided for any age group. Among the methods employed in therapy for anger management are:

  • Self-awareness
  • Mindfulness
  • Resentment control
  • Breathing methods
  • Stress relief

The key to managing persistent anger problems is through therapy. Based on the intensity of your anger and its underlying reason, a qualified mental health specialist can propose a specialized therapy for anger management. The overall objective of therapy is to assist you in working through your anger to have a healthier, more harmonious connection with your emotions instead of suppressing them.

Psychotherapy: These are the most prominent category of counselors, sometimes also known as "talk therapists." They collaborate with their clients to address underlying anger issues and their causes while also assisting them in achieving healthy behavioral goals.

Psychodynamic Therapy: Psychodynamic therapy is where therapists help people undergo self-reflection to recognize the roots of their emotional distress.

Therapeutic play: Play therapy is a type of psychotherapy that is helpful for younger children.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy: This type of therapy helps angry person recognize their pattern of self-destructive thoughts. Thus, such persons can better regulate and control their flare-ups when they occur.

Stress Inoculation Training: During stress inoculation training, therapists create anger-inducing situations for their clients so that they can react differently in situations of actual anger.

The body's "fight or flight" response is brought on by anger, typically associated with fear, excitement, and anxiety. Adrenaline and cortisol, two stress hormones, are abundant in the body and are released from the adrenal glands. Expecting increased physical activity, the brain diverts blood from the intestines toward the muscles. As a result, the body temperature rises, along with general breathing, heart rate, blood pressure, and sweating. Therefore, a person experiences a concentrated mind.

However, chronic unchecked anger can eventually impact various bodily systems due to the persistent influx of stress hormones and related metabolic changes. Uncontrolled anger has been related to both short- and long-term health issues, including:

  • Headache
  • Digestive issues
  • Abdominal discomfort
  • Increased anxiety and depression
  • Heart attack
  • Skin conditions like eczema caused due to high blood pressure

Our therapists and counselors specialize in providing in-person and online therapy, counseling, care, and treatment for various mental health needs and issues. Some of those issues include, but not limited to, anxiety, depression, grief & loss, trauma, PTSD, couples counseling, marriage counseling, life transitions, adjustment disorders, bipolar, schizophrenia, eating disorders, child counseling, teen and adolescent therapy, anger management, career coaching, life coaching, ADHD treatment, family therapy, panic or anger management attack, phobias, substance abuse, virtual therapy, online counseling, EMDR, and EFT.

What separates us from the rest is that, unlike others, your first session with a Lifebulb anger management therapist or counselor won't simply be a background or demographic information-gathering session. We understand how difficult getting help can be. That's why our first offline/online therapy session with you will be about providing the exact service you are seeking. Moreover, we will help you demonstrate that the therapy process can work with both sides' combined effort and dedication.

We believe getting access to an anger management specialist or counselor should be quick and easy. So our process is straightforward. Simply browse our therapist catalog until you find the right fit for you. Then, you can schedule a virtual or in-person counseling session online. On the other hand, you can call our office and someone from our team will help make sure you're matched with the right anger management therapist or counselor. Whether online or offline anger management therapy, your therapist will help you with an individualized anger management treatment plan to help you reach your specific goals.

If you are experiencing an urgent emergency please call 911 immediately.

While Lifebulb is not a crisis center and Lifebulb anger management therapists/counselors are not emergency service providers, we understand that urgent matters can and will emerge from time to time. You will have direct access to your therapist in the anger management treatment center through email and phone. Our dedicated therapists will go out of their way to be available to your needs. Furthermore, depending on your specific anger management treatment plan, your anger management therapist may provide you with the exact resources to use when situations occur beyond the scope of your online therapy or offline therapy work together.

When you book a session with your therapist/counselor, our team will email you a link to the virtual anger management therapy room as a confirmation of your appointment date and time. Upon clicking the link and logging in to the virtual therapy room, your anger management specialist will meet you there.

Yes. All of our therapists can provide the best online anger management therapy and anger management treatment services in a virtual setting.

Booking a session with us is easy. Simply call our office or request a specific session time from our website, and a team member can book you with the best possible fit as a therapist or confirm your online session details.

Anger management treatment is often a long-term process that can help in improving overall mental health. It has been demonstrated that therapy can enhance overall wellbeing and is associated with healthy adjustments to the brain and body. There is never a guaranteed one-stop "cure," but therapy can certainly induce more positive lifestyle changes over time.

We accept several major commercial insurance plans, including Blue Cross Blue Shield, Aetna, Cigna, United Healthcare, Tricare, Medicare, and others. If you don't see your insurance listed, we would be happy to verify your benefits to see if we can accept them, and if not, we can offer you an affordable self-pay rate.

At Lifebulb, we operate without any ongoing membership or fees. We believe that everyone deserves to receive the best online therapy service experience. Thus, we believe those benefits should come free of any ongoing out-of-pocket fees simply for engaging in therapy. With us, your only session costs will be those set by your insurance provider or our affordable self-pay rate.

While many practices accept only self-pay clients or out-of-network benefits, at Lifebulb, we aim to keep your costs low by accepting most major insurance plans. Often the out-of-pocket expense per online therapy session is a low co-pay determined by your specific insurance provider and plan. We are also willing to offer a self-pay rate lower than many practices for those without insurance or simply preferring not to use their healthcare benefits for in-person or virtual therapy.

At Lifebulb, we are extremely picky about who we hire to help you achieve your therapy goals. But we understand that every anger management therapist may not be the perfect match for every client. If your therapy experience is less than what you hoped for, we will help you get someone you would much rather prefer.

While the majority of our clients opt to have their insurance benefits to get therapy online, we offer a self-pay rate as low as $99, which may vary slightly by region and therapist licensure.

Therapists that don't enjoy their workplace are often, unfortunately, unable to provide their clients with the best possible level of counseling and therapy. That's why at Lifebulb, our anger management therapists are our top priority. This means that your counselor or therapist can provide you, their client, with the best treatments for anger because they enjoy the work they do in session with you, where they work, and who they work with.

Our online therapy sessions are all conducted by our therapist aid anger management in private spaces, and our video platform is contained within our HIPAA-compliant Electronic Health Records system, so your face, voice, and data are always private and protected.

At Lifebulb, our biggest difference lies in our therapists. Many practices, large and small, often put growing businesses before growing people. It may sound simple, but at Lifebulb, we treat our therapists like valuable people that provide a valuable service. What does that mean for our clients? While we believe therapists and counselors, regardless of where they work, do their best for their clients, we've found that therapists who genuinely enjoy where they work are able to provide the best therapy for anger to those they help. To that end, our primary goal at Lifebulb is to provide our therapists with the best possible environment in which to operate. In doing so, we believe Lifebulb clients are best positioned to accomplish their treatments for anger disorder goals through in-person counseling or virtual therapy for anger disorder.

At Lifebulb, we are extremely selective about the therapists we hire because we know choosing the right therapist can make all the difference in our clients reaching their goals. Our anger management therapists are all educated at the masters level and above and have received several years of hands-on training before becoming fully licensed clinicians. Even among the pool of highly trained therapists, we only work with those who align with our core values. That way, we know your anger management therapist will go the extra mile to help you and offer the best therapy for anger online or in-person counseling.

Lifebulb’s anger management clinics has several locations for providing in-person counseling and is adding more regularly. We also provide telehealth or online therapy session services for those who may live distant from our offices.

All our counselors are highly educated and trained and have received their full clinical licensure from practicing counseling. We also thoroughly interview each of our therapists, ensure that they pass a background check, and train them in-house to work with us. Additionally, we ensure that each of our counselors and therapists participates in ongoing education to continue to provide the best in-person and online therapy services possible.

It is important that our clients work with the best possible fit for their specific treatments for anger. This is why we provide detailed bios of our therapists for our clients to review before reaching out to us. If you have a specific anger management therapist in mind to work with, we would be happy to schedule you to see them. We also understand that our clients don't always match perfectly with their therapist, and in the case of a less-than-great fit, we will help you to find the right match among our team and, if necessary, provide the best referral we can to someone more suited to help you beyond our walls.

A professional counselor is a master- or PhD-level mental health professional approved by a state licensure board to diagnose and treat mental health disorders. The exact name of a professional counselor's license can vary by state, but some of the most common are: Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC), Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC), and Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC).

We do employ licensed clinical psychologists, as psychologists can offer services, such as best online therapy services and psychological testing, that many other license types are unable to offer. Many times, your counselor or therapist can work in tandem with a psychologist to provide therapy and psychological testing when necessary to better provide for your specific needs or goals. In this way, we are able to better provide for a wider range of your needs.
