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).

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.

"Sticks and stones will break my bones, but your words will break my heart." Many people with anger issues know the damage that can be done to a relationship with even one outburst. Mastering anger is necessary to having the affection and trust of the people we care about. It has been accurately referred to as 'restraint of pen and tongue' in some literature. While it may seem like an effort one undertakes for others, the primary benefits are to the person who handles their anger. If you are reading this, and the thought "I wouldn't get angry if so-and-so didn't do such-and-such" consider yourself a primary candidate for this work. Discovering how to escape from anger will set you free.

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.

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.

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.

I work with anger management for anger that is not physically abusive and not required by the courts. We will look at the root causes - is this a way that you keep others at bay? Are there other ways to cope with anger? Is this an approach to conflict that you learned in your family? We will talk about your thoughts, experiences, and expectations regarding conflicts. I will help you to understand and articulate the cause your anger so that you are less likely to feel out of control.

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.

We can work together to understand the anger and help you have better control over it.

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.

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, typically experienced as an intense feeling of displeasure, is often triggered by an injustice, failure, or stress. Anger can vary in degree from mild irritability to rage. Contrary to popular belief, anger is a health emotion, and when managed correctly, it can be an important component for healthy relationships. When anger is not processed and experienced appropriately, however, it can be alienating and lead to actions that are regrettable. If you or someone you know is struggling with managing anger, I encourage you to reach out for support.

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.

Once you understand why your anger controls YOU, and how you can control IT, "anger management" is much more simple.

You don’t have to feel angry all the time. Sometimes anger is obvious, and causes emotional, family and legal issues. Sometimes anger is less obvious, resulting in self-destructive or passive-aggressive behaviors. While you are learning about the source of your anger and in order to heat you must develop techniques to keep the anger from boiling over into rage. Talking and exploring ways to redirect potentially destructive behaviors and thoughts relieves the anger and promotes healing and healthy emotions

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.
