Deborah Serani, PsyD, Psychology, answeredA psychologist or other mental health practitioner (for example, social worker, psychiatrist, marriage and family counselor) can help in the diagnosis and treatment of anger and depression. The first step here is to evaluate your symptoms. Is the anger part of the depression? Is it a separate issue aside from the depressive mood disorder? Once identified, psychotherapy, sometimes called talk therapy, will help you learn new ways of thinking and behaving, which will help alleviate your symptoms. One of the most important things to do when seeking a mental health therapist is to find a practitioner who specializes in what you're experiencing. So make sure you find a clinician who specializes in depression or anger management.
