I can help you learn how to manage your anger. Often anger is covering deeper feelings such as heartbreak, helplessness and loneliness. I can teach you a three-step anger process that can help you take personal responsibility for your angry feelings and learn what feelings you may be avoiding with your anger and, how you might be using anger to try to control others. Also how to know if you are really angry at yourself for maybe not setting a healthy boundary with someone and instead project your anger onto others.

Anger is an emotion that often viewed as an emotion to avoid or suppress. In my view, however, anger -- just like other emotion -- serves as an indicator as to how we really feel about a person or situation. In working with clients on anger-issues I encourage -- not the suppression of anger -- but rather the appropriate expression of it. The goal is to help clients own and feel their own anger and to use it in ways that helps advance their understanding of themselves and those who mean the most to them.

"Sticks and stones will break my bones, but your words will break my heart." Many people with anger issues know the damage that can be done to a relationship with even one outburst. Mastering anger is necessary to having the affection and trust of the people we care about. It has been accurately referred to as 'restraint of pen and tongue' in some literature. While it may seem like an effort one undertakes for others, the primary benefits are to the person who handles their anger. If you are reading this, and the thought "I wouldn't get angry if so-and-so didn't do such-and-such" consider yourself a primary candidate for this work. Discovering how to escape from anger will set you free.

Anger can feel overwhelmingly powerful, and often results in feelings of guilt and regret. It may cause problems at home or at work. I use Cognitive-Behavioral techniques to help you identify the specific thinking and behavior habits which are contributing to your anger. From there, we will teach you new tools and techniques to respond to people and situations differently, as well as how to manage your behavior once you're in the "red zone."

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.
