Anger Issue Adolescent Counselor

Adolescent CouselerWhen we hold on to anger, it festers within us and threatens to define our relationships with family members and virtually every person we meet who might become close to us. Anger becomes toxic when it is not dealt with properly. When adolescents learn to hold on to anger, the toxicity threatens to become life-long patterns. More immediately, anger can manifest in tense family relations and sometimes even run-ins with the legal system. But even if anger is “only” affecting day-to-day relationships, when it is experienced by adolescents it is important to deal with it properly, caringly, and thoroughly as they are still maturing and their view of the world is limited. Laurie Grengs is a licensed psychologist who offers comprehensive counseling services for adolescents with anger issues. Her practice serves the communities of Coon Rapids, Blaine, Andover, and Ham Lake, Minnesota area and she has 35 years of experience helping adolescents understand their anger and control it better.
