If you or your child have difficulties with anger, you know how devastating it can be to relationships, friendships, work and school life. Most people with anger issues, are otherwise good people, who are embarrassed and ashamed of the way they erupt! Why do nice people end up with anger problems? Often temper issues are related to other difficulties like impulse control issues stemming from ADHD, low self-esteem, poor modeling in their own families, childhood trauma, depression, or anxiety. I believe in a comprehensive approach which aims to change anger responses, as well as identify and address the underlying issues.

This is an area that is vital to understand and know how to manage in order to have a healthy, compatible relationship. Not knowing how to reduce anger and handle it can sabotage a couple’s ability to communicate and get along on many levels. Anger unchecked, can destroy relationships and sometimes lead to violence. Over the years I have developed many techniques to help people reduce their anger, and have taught them how to communicate with their partner effectively.

Anger is an important emotion that serves a necessary function. Some people, however, have difficulty controlling their anger and end up regretting their actions later on. At the Lukin Center, we work with clients to help them identify when they become angry and the stages of anger they pass through before they lose control in order to be able to prevent the anger from building to such a destructive fever pitch. Our therapists work with each individual to provide techniques and tools for maintaining control that work for them.

Why is it that some people can be rational when faced with adversity and others become completely unglued? Often the anger is justified but when we become irrational and violent we have lost control of our power...not enhanced it. For some people learning how to process anger into rational thought and reasonable action is a difficult prospect. Our job is to learn about our triggers and find healthier ways to respond to adversity. I always remind my patients that we are allowed all of our thoughts no matter how out of control they may sound. What can't be allowed is acting on those thoughts in inappropriate and unhealthy ways. We must somehow find the Pause button.

The world in which we live is an increasingly stressful place. There are many demands on one's time, energy and patience. Challenging dynamics at home, work or school can make one feel irritable, angry or out of control. Do you find that you bottle your anger up and when times are really tough you explode? Or, do you have a hard time containing your anger to the point that you are jeopardizing your relationships or career? Research suggests that individuals who are quick to anger are more likely to develop heart disease and are five times more likely to have an early heart attack. Ari Fox provides a safe and non-judgmental setting for you to speak about whatever is on your mind.

If you find yourself having difficulty tolerating your anger or rage or are suffering consequences in your personal or work life as a result of outbursts, thinking it will get better on its own will leave you with more problems. Your anger is there for a reason or many. Psychotherapy with me can help you understand yourself in new ways so that you can deal with your anger in healthier ways and work on solutions.

This one requires careful diagnosis. Too many people have come to me claiming to have problems with anger management when in fact it was someone else who had the problem. Sometimes we need to get angry. Sometimes we just need help with how best to express it. And yes, other times we have the harder task of identifying just why you do get angry so much more than others seem to, more than upon calm reflection you realize is warranted. So this kind of work can be over in a few sessions or it can last months. Depends what we find.

Anger is a completely normal, usually healthy, human emotion. But when it gets out of control and turns destructive, it can lead to problems at work, in relationships and in the overall quality of your life. But you don’t have to feel helpless in the face of an unpredictable and destructive force in your life. I work to help you heal the root cause of your anger. You’ll find understanding and compassion for the pain in yourself and your healing can begin. With healing comes understanding and compassion for others, and the return of the sense of control and calm in your life.

I work with individuals whose anger, a normal healthy emotion, has become out of control, destructive, and has begun or continues to dominate all aspects of their lives. Whether you feel your anger is just there below the surface all the time or if you don’t feel it at all until it erupts and you are flooded by it, I can help you gain more control. I offer a safe, nonjudgmental environment where we will identify your triggers, underlying issues, and work towards strategies that will help you gain more confidence in handling your anger, allowing your reactions to be an appropriate response to a normal emotion.
