Therapy for Anger Management in Philadelphia, PA.

Anger Management

You just got into another fight with your partner and they are fed up with your angry outbursts. They’re insisting that you get help because they can’t take it anymore. Truth is, you can’t either.

You feel like your anger has taken over your life. You can’t stop yourself from getting worked up, and once you get there, it’s extremely difficult to calm yourself down. The littlest things can trigger an outburst or argument, and even you can’t always predict what will set you off. You’re afraid of what will happen if things keep going this way.

You don’t want to lose your relationships with the people closest to you, but they seem to bear the brunt of your anger. You wish that you could stop yourself from getting so worked up, but you just can’t seem to help it.

Would you like to have better control over your anger and emotions?

You know that stress from work and home makes it hard to stay calm when you’re triggered. With the additional stress and changes related to the Coronavirus, you’re finding yourself getting angry even quicker. You feel guilty because the anger shows up with the people you love the most and you’re scared that your family will fall apart because you can’t manage your anger. Other people would be surprised to know the truth.

Serenity Solutions can help through individual therapy sessions and an anger management class.

Over the last 20 years, we have helped people in Philadelphia and South Jersey who struggle with anger to learn the tools they need to manage their reactions so they don’t live with regret and shame. The people we work with:

  • gain a better understanding of triggers
  • learn how to manage stress
  • learn how to communicate calmly instead of losing their cool.

We currently have openings for the next anger management group and individual therapy for anger. The next Anger Management group is scheduled to begin on Monday, October 11, 2021. Call 267-317-8817 or click here to schedule your free 15-minute phone consultation to talk about how you can get a handle on your life and emotions.



Frequently Asked Questions about

the Anger Management Group

Who is this group for?

This group is for adults who want to learn how to manage their anger so that they can be the partner, parent, friend, sibling, child, boss, or employee that they want to be. For the person who doesn’t want to feel bad about how they reacted to their loved one. For the person who is afraid that if they don’t get their anger under control, that their loved one might leave. For the person who got in trouble with the law because of their anger but who has always known that they needed help with their temper.


This group is not for someone who doesn’t think they have an anger management problem but is being forced to attend by a judge, probation officer, partner, parent or someone else.


There are so many benefits to joining Serenity Solutions’ Anger Management Group.

  • You will learn how to catch yourself when you are triggered so that you can decide how to respond instead of reacting in a way that you might later regret.
  • You will learn how to communicate your anger in respectful ways that feel good to you and the person you are communicating with.
  • You will learn how to decrease triggers by learning how to manage your stress.

Great question! It is rare that you will know someone in the group. Philadelphia has 1.5 million residents and that doesn’t include the people who live in the suburbs who participate in the group. However, if you should know someone in the group, here are the rules: Whatever happens in the group, stays in the group. As licensed therapists, we are required to keep all information shared with us confidential (except in cases of safety). The #1 rule of the group is that the group members follow that same rule. And remember, the other people in the group are there for the same reason you are there and probably want their privacy respected, too.


We hear this from a lot of people. You will never be forced to talk about something you don’t feel comfortable talking about. That being said, once they get to know the other members of the group, most people feel comfortable opening up about their issues with other people who are struggling with the same issues. We make sure that the group feels safe and supportive. Because everyone is there to work on the same problem, there is no judgment.


Serenity Solutions is currently providing online therapy using secure, HIPAA-compliant video conferencing programs. Online therapy is available to Pennsylvania and New Jersey residents. Click here for more information. 


The group meets for 8-10 weeks. You start and end with the same people and each week builds upon what you learned in the previous weeks. We ask that you attend every week to get the most out of the group. 


$65 per week (Some of the costs may be reimbursable by insurance depending on your plan. Contact your insurance company to find out. Click here for a list of questions to ask the insurance representative that answers the phone.)


Sean McCann, LPC runs the group. He incorporates techniques from cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) to help you learn the tools that will help you have a better relationship with your anger, therefore, a better relationship with yourself and your loved ones. 


To join the group, call Serenity Solutions at 267-317-8817 for your free 15-minute phone consultation (or click here to schedule your free phone consultation). During the phone consultation, we’ll gather some general information to make sure that the group is right for you. We’ll answer any additional questions that you have. Then we’ll schedule an individual face-to-face consultation. During that appointment, you’ll tell us more about you, your anger, and your goals for the group. This will help us to personalize the group to meet your needs. You will also get to know us better and get all of your questions answered. Then you will be registered to start the next group.

    If you’ve been keeping up with the news recently, you’re probably finding very good reasons to be angry. Between the abortion bans in Texas, rampant violence against women, and the mass deportation of Haitian refugees at the Texas border, it can feel like the world is in a constant state of upheaval.

    Coronavirus. Protests against police brutality and racism. A country divided politically during an election year. How are you doing?

  • multiracial hands connected with a quote underneath

    Are you feeling uncomfortable? The death of George Floyd and the resulting protests, riots, and looting, and calls to action have led to a lot of strong emotions. These feelings range from anger and rage to sadness, fear, and confusion to hope and can feel uncomfortable.
