Anger is a poison that can ruin a perfectly good relationship, push people away, and cost you everything. We see it every day when clients come to our office. Their anger issues are costing them what they care about the most—their family. Clients come in the door frustrated that anger issues are ruining their marriages, hurting their children, and costing them their peace and happiness. When you lose control of your anger it can lead to problems at work, at home, with your friends, and with your family. If unchecked, anger can cost you your marriage, your friendships, and your job.

We can help you understand your anger issues and learn how to deal with it in a positive way. We’ll talk about why you get angry, how you can manage your anger, and how you can control your anger so that it doesn’t control you. We offer solutions to your anger problems.  Grace Counseling has counselors who specialize in anger issues. They know how to guide you through this journey.

As a full-service family counseling center, we can address anger at all stages of life.  Anger in a five year old will look and sound different than anger in a 45 year old. And just as the signs of anger will be different, the approaches to dealing with it will need to be different.  Our therapists who specialize in helping children are going to utilize play therapy, and guide parents through the techniques they are teaching in therapy. Adults are going to look for the root cause of anger.  We are going to not just help you figure out what to do when you’re at the end of your rope – but help you understand what is making you angry, and where your anger is coming from.

Dr. Michael Ballard offers an in-depth anger evaluation, usually appropriate in legal situations.  An anger evaluation includes an hour long appointment, an additional questionnaire, and a written evaluation by Dr. Ballard on Grace Counseling letterhead.  Many who are struggling with anger do not need this formal evaluation. If you are unsure if this evaluation is appropriate for your situation, or have more questions regarding what this evaluation entails, email Dr. Michael Ballard at
