Anger Management: What You Need to Know, Rochester, New York

If you struggle with anger management, you aren’t alone. Controlling feelings of anger are difficult for millions of people, but you don’t have to let anger control you any longer. The compassionate and professional therapists at White Spruce Counseling in the Rochester, NY, area will help you take back your life.

Anger is the body’s natural response to things it identifies as threatening. When you feel angry, physiological changes occur in your body, which are changes that used to be helpful for early human survival. Today, however, these changes lead to negative outcomes in our modern society.
