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 people 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, the anger management 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 anger management 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 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 anger management 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 anger management 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.
