Anger is a healthy and normal emotion; it's how we express our anger that can make it problematic in our relationships. Moreover, anger is considered a secondary emotion. This means, there is a more primary emotion that underlies and fuels our anger. Learning to manage our anger in a more productive, healthy and adaptive fashion will first mean identifying the deeper emotions that often remain outside of our awareness. What might be at the core of your anger....fear? hurt? feelings of helplessness or needing to feel heard by your partner?

My approach to anger management begins with listening and assessing to determine the stressors that trigger the client's anger. I may recommend medication (administered under the supervision of a medical professional). I then tailor a treatment plan to each client using a variety of modalities (including family therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, and solution-oriented therapy) to help them learn how to manage their feelings and avoid the consequences of unmanaged anger.

Anger is a natural emotion everyone experiences. Anger can even have purpose: to bring us to action during injustice or even to protect others from harm. If however, anger escalates and hurts others emotionally or physically therapy is needed. I have heard clients say, "it's in my genes", or "so and so makes me so mad...". Perhaps, but truth is, there is never a good reason to let anger take control our lives. Relationships suffer, and often we hurt the people we love. My approach to therapy is to help you find balance. We will look at what your triggers , where, when anger is most present, how it affects you physically. Together, we find the tools you need to find a healthier way.

Does your anger seem out of control? Is it causing you to regret your actions or the hurt you caused to those around you? Anger is a normal and powerful emotion that everyone experiences. Learning how to express this emotion can be challenging, even when it is justified. However, identifying factors that trigger your anger is an important step in finding the balance and learning how to control your reactions. Together we can develop strategies specific to your triggers and help you find tools which in turn will help you to live a more healthy and productive life.

Anger can present itself when you least expect it. You can be with family and friends at a school or work outing. You can be on a date and your spouse or significant other does something to set you off. I work with individuals and families in identifying those triggers, exploring the origins and the emotional connections and utilizing cognitive behavioral therapy to address the un-healthy and often off-putting interactions.

Anger is both a natural and necessary emotion. It is a vital part of our preservation instinct. But when your anger causes troubles--say at work, in relationships, to your health-- it becomes critical that you develop new ways to address anger: methods that help decrease how frequently or intensely you get angry, and that lead to more effective responses to anger. Dr. Goldstein addresses anger from a realistic, practical perspective that can help you enjoy a healthier, more constructive approach to your life in the face of anger.

Anger management is beneficial when one is having difficulty controlling their anger. I have always stated that anger is not a negative emotion, but it is how one deals with this emotion that may be negative. Clients with anger may have issues which may include, outbursts, abusive tendencies, addiction, and legal problems. In treatment we can explore the reasons for your anger and its triggers. Once the triggers are found, the next step is to place coping skills in place to decrease or nullify the anger

Has someone told you that you are getting way too stressed out about things?I will help you learn to communicate your thoughts without becoming confrontational. Do you even know what your positive traits are anymore? We’ll discuss them and also that anger is more of a secondary emotion to more primary feelings such as fear, guilt, shame, powerlessness, or sadness. Together, we will identify the triggers that upset you, so that you can be more self-aware and develop coping skills. Reducing anger will improve your self-image, patience, interactions with family and career success, while reducing health issues such as headache and backaches.

Healthy anger is intended to communicate a problem in relationship that needs attention. It is intended to say this is important take it seriously. Many people think of anger as the blaming, yelling, controlling behavior that is destructive to relationships, and prevents healthy communication. Those with a genuine desire to change can learn to manage their feelings in healthy ways that build rather then destroy relationships. I work with clients to help them identify and manage their feelings and needs and direct their actions toward self-confidence, and empathy for others.
