People often come into my office and say that they have no control over their anger, that they just "lost it." I work with my clients to help them understand that they do have control over their anger. I teach them anger management strategies to increase awareness of their feeling states on a regular basis so that they can recognize and address the warning signs before letting the anger build. There are several techniques that clients can use when they recognize the warning signs. My clients and I fill their "toolbox" with as many strategies as possible to calm themselves down and think rationally.
Kristin Schaefer Schiumo, Ph.D.
Anger is a completely normal, often healthy, emotion. But when it gets out of control and turns destructive, it can lead to problems at work, in your personal relationships, and in the quality of your overall life. You cannot avoid all the situations or people that anger you, nor can you change them, but you can learn to control your reactions to them. We will work to reduce the intensity of your emotions and the physiological arousal that anger causes you, through the use of strategies such as cognitive restructuring, relaxation, problem solving, improved communication, humor, and changing your environment.

My main approach is to help my client identify situations (contexts), people, behaviors (his and others) that seem to usher in varying degrees of anger. My main message is that anger is an appropriate feeling to loss and frustration, but it is his learning to appropriately express anger in an adaptive manner that leads to emotional growth and the mollification of the anger itself.

Therapy at Carmichael Psychology will offer you tools to help you manage your anger more effectively. Dr. Chloe or one of her associates will work patiently with you to learn about your triggers and patterns when it comes to anger, and work with you to learn more effective ways to cope.

Anger is a completely normal, usually healthy, human emotion unless it gets out of control and turns destructive. This leads to problems—problems at work, in your personal relationships, and in the overall quality of your life. I work with clients to help them take back control of their emotions. We start by identifying the feelings attached to anger to uncover ways to express these emotions without causing harm to relationships.

In psychotherapy patients can benefit from anger management counseling by learning to better manage powerful emotions such as anger and rage. Patients can also learn to manage strong impulses and modify their behavior. Another focus of anger management may be improving one's communication skills to reduce the drive toward "acting-out." Improvements in these various areas can have positive and long lasting effects on interpersonal relationships.

Anger Management is a specialty of our center. Research indicates that anger problems can be made worse by therapists practicing ineffective techniques. So you wan to be sure your clinician is practicing the right form of anger management. The good news is there is also plenty of scientific support to show that effective anger management can reduce anger symptoms in as few as 12-20 sessions. In fact, a study published by one of our staff members indicated that in addition to anger being reduced, but depression symptoms decreased as well. If you, or a loved one, suffer from anger problems, please call us with any questions you may have. We understand how far reaching these issues can be.

Helping you find wholeness...
124 East 40th Street, Ste 404, New York, New York 10016
Not being able to control how you act or speak out of anger can be very damaging in some or all of your relationships (parent-child, with a significant other, among friends, even at work). Having uncontrollable anger and feeling angry all the time also does not feel good for the person with those feelings and it's possible to feel regret afterwards for what you have said or done. There is hope, however. Through exploring the anger and practicing techniques that you will learn, you can get to the stage where you can manage your anger (e.g. get angry about the right things and express it appropriately), leading back to a sense of wholeness and peace. Christopher and you can journey there.
