Sometimes we forget that anger is one of many emotions. Emotions are neither good nor bad. It's normal to feel anger when you've been mistreated. We feel anger when we feel insecure , vulnerable and other different feelings that trigger our anger. We feel anger when we aren't in control. The problem is not the emotion, but the expression. Most of us don't like how anger make us feel. It usually makes us feel out of control and can make us do things we might tend to regret. Together we can explore where your anger stems from, learn different strategies to express it in a way that will benefit you in your relationships and achieve your goals to lead a healthier and happier life.

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.

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.

We all come into this world with different personalities. Some of us are more laid back and calm. Others are more excitable, stirred up more easily. Anger is an emotion that has its rightful place at times—unless you’re a Zen master or Tibetan monk. But excessive anger is a liability for most people. If it is coupled by significant physical damage to others, you can be sure it’s even more than a liability—it’s technically a crime. Sometimes the excess is verbal rather than physical. Unfortunately, the cliché that claims “words can never harm me” is simply not true for most of us. I am a fellow of the National Anger Management Association and have worked with anger issues for over 25 years.....

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.

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.

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.
