Anger management counseling can help to identify stressors and learn the steps to stay calm in the face of anger. The goal is to handle tense situations in more constructive and positive ways by reducing the emotional and physical arousal that anger can cause. It will provide the tools to take back your life and resolve the triggers that result in unplanned anger reactions.

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.

This is not who you are, or have to be. I know this because you are here. Anger, in and of itself, is not a primary emotion - it is secondary, triggered by a host of other emotions, sometimes long buried. I would like to explore with you in parallel, first your triggers and responses, and second you past. Our responses are learned and can be reconditioned. You can respond differently. Bear in mind, though there may be persons or things affected by your anger, you are my focus, and you deserve to be cared about.

I provide anger management for court mandated or voluntary treatment and work with a wide variety of people of all ages and backgrounds. By examining the underlying feelings that are difficult to tolerate and trigger aggressive responses and working on relaxation, mindful behavior and communication patterns, you will see positive results. Anger is a feeling we all experience, but if your behavior causes negative consequences, we will explore your history, your sensitivities and your feelings that need to be understood. There is no shame or blame in my treatment and you will gain control of your behavior and interactions.

Rational emotive behavior therapy is a highly effective, evidence-based style of therapy that helps you identify the thinking that's keeping you feeling angry and behaving, well, angrily. Once you identify the thinking errors, we can name those errors, and correct them to move in a different, more constructive emotional and behavioral direction (such as frustration and disappointment instead of anger and rage).

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.

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.

The goal of anger management is to control the anger before it controls you by reducing your emotional and physical responses to situations that trigger outbursts. At Emerge, you’ll learn to manage the intensity of your thoughts, behaviors and actions since that is all that you have control over. You can’t change the people or environments that cause you to feel enraged, but you can change yourself and identify when to remove yourself from the situations that are triggers. If you feel you’re becoming angry more easily and having low frustration tolerance, you can benefit from anger management. The first step is understanding that there is help available and reaching out for the support in order to make the change.

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.

Anger management requires the ability to contain, own, reflect and evaluate anger as information and energy to inform decision making on how to best promote our self interest and keep us safe doing so. Many of us due to traumatic events early in our lives cannot extricate the experience of anger from grave fears of judgment, punishment or in severe cases, annihilation. Fight, flight and freeze are often unproductive, dangerous, and automatic reactions to the re-living of these traumatic events. The brain trips false alarms that must be rewired for patients to cease to be afraid of their anger. I use supportive therapy, mindfulness techniques and insight therapy to effect changes.

Anger is neither a good emotion nor is it a bad one. It is sending a message saying to you that a situation (or a person) is unfair, unjust, disrespectful or threatening. It is normal to be angry when you’ve been mistreated or wronged. However, it becomes a problem when you let anger out in a way that harms yourself or others. If you feel like your anger is out of your hands and there is little you can do to control it, I provide the help you need to gain control over your anger. During our work, we explore the roots of your anger, and you learn new ways to communicate your feelings and thoughts without hurting yourself or others.

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.

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 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.

In close relationships, we become most vulnerable, open, and dependent. When conflict arises with our partner, we may react with intense anger which escalates as the argument continues. As these scenarios become more frequent, it's important to seek assistance. Our practice works with couples to help them identify triggers for conflict and reduce and mediate arguments. As each partner gains an understanding of the other's needs and desires, it becomes easier to discuss issues at hand without escalating to anger. Call/text us at 516-387-5143 for a free 15 minute consultation to see if we're a good fit for your needs.

What if you didn't have an anger problem? Are you holding back and constantly giving? You do this so much that you finally can't take it anymore and you explode. If that described you I can help. Too often people think that their anger is out of control when it isn't true. What is happening is you hold back on small irritations until it builds up. I can show you how to recognize this and stop before you explode.
