Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

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.

Grey Matters International and the work of Kevin J. Fleming, Ph.D approaches issues of anger management in a very humane yet fresh perspective. You see, anger is a normal emotion but it is the valence (intensity) as well as the coupling choice of what one does with this that is the problem. Telling someone to "not" do it or modifying behavior with a trite psychological plan that only breeds a compliant response is not the way to change anger. Brainwave optimization is a new cutting edge technology that allows one to rewire circuitry responsible for reactivity driving the anger.

By helping individuals connect their irrational beliefs to their ineffectual and sometimes violent consequence, you will learn to take control of your anger and not allow it to control you. Using the ABC's of Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy we will explore how activating events in your life and your belief systems or your schema trigger your emotional and behavioral consequences. Additionally, using a pulse oximeter we will explore the effects of anger on your body and learn how to de-flood your system while learning self soothing techniques.

Do you find you have difficulty managing outbursts of anger? Or are you more prone to bottling your anger and sitting on it for hours or weeks on end allowing it to fester? Both of these are common responses to anger, and neither are beneficial. Anger management therapy can benefit you by helping you to learn that you can control the way in which you respond to your anger. Through exploring the underlying reasons for your anger you will gain useful knowledge to help you recognize your triggers. Furthermore, through mindfulness and cognitive behavioral approaches you will learn to channel your anger in a more productive way.

Anger can become part of your everyday life due to past history, family conflict, work issues, substance use, etc and anger can also affect all of these spheres of your life. With the use of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), mindfulness, play therapy (for children) and solution-focused techniques we will work together to reduce and resolve the reasons for your anger along with learning coping skills for future anger as this is a nature feeling that all humans experience so that you can move forward in life on a more positive path.

Anger Therapist

Mitchell Milch, LCSW

Psychotherapist/Couples Counselor

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.

Sometimes anger is a response to feeling misunderstood: you cannot believe that the other person does not see what is evident to you. At other times, anger is an expression of frustration because you cannot attain a goal or you are prevented (by others or by life situations) from reaching a desired landmark in your life. As a therapist, I will help you understand what is fueling your anger, and once you get a better sense of this, you will be able use emotional energy to deal with the underlying personal frustration instead of wasting it in staying angry.

Anger becomes a repetitive cycle, like bring on a hamster wheel, but it ultimately sabotages the other areas of our lives. I think of it this way: that when you're in the grips of chronic anger, you're being played rather than being the player, the author, of your own experiences. Played by? Three things: Your past, the object of your anger and physiological habits, in that people's minds will be most comfortable in a certain disposition, in this case, anger. Good things come from finding light in the darkness. In this case, with therapy, in transcending grievances and the mental habit of anger, to see things in a better way and to lift your everyday experience to a more satisfying place.

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.

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.
