I provide individual psychotherapy for anger management. Anger is normal emotion that everyone experiences. It becomes a problem when one expresses anger inappropriately or one lacks the proficiency to express any emotions but anger. I use Humanistic and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) to help my clients understand their anger, improve their emotional experience, and express their emotions in healthy ways. A healthy emotional life is the cornerstone of living a full and successful life.

I can help you learn how to manage your anger. Often anger is covering deeper feelings such as heartbreak, helplessness and loneliness. I can teach you a three-step anger process that can help you take personal responsibility for your angry feelings and learn what feelings you may be avoiding with your anger and, how you might be using anger to try to control others. Also how to know if you are really angry at yourself for maybe not setting a healthy boundary with someone and instead project your anger onto others.

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.

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.

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.

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.

This is an area that is vital to understand and know how to manage in order to have a healthy, compatible relationship. Not knowing how to reduce anger and handle it can sabotage a couple’s ability to communicate and get along on many levels. Anger unchecked, can destroy relationships and sometimes lead to violence. Over the years I have developed many techniques to help people reduce their anger, and have taught them how to communicate with their partner effectively.

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.

We all get angry at times in our life, and there are times when anger is a useful signal that tells us something needs to change or that something is wrong. But there are also times where anger can begin to dominate our thoughts and actions, causing problems at work and in our relationships. My goal as a therapist is to help you talk though your concerns and issues so that I can give you the tools to help you overcome sources of non-productive anger. When you're tired of being angry and ready to move on, let's talk.

We feel anger because we feel that something is not fair, something is not working out the way we thought it should, our boundaries have been crossed, or we feel we have been treated badly, or missed out. Anger can be frustrating if you don't know how to address the underlying issue. I specialize in helping those whose anger is related to social anxiety, isolation, bullying, harassment or lack of important social skills.

Anger is an emotion that is strong. Its an emotion expressing that something is not ok. Anger presents its face to necessarily express that you are not ok and/or something is not ok, and change needs to happen. This emotion is valuable. However, there are effective ways of expressing anger; ways which empowers one to make positive change and there are less-than-helpful ways of expressing anger; bringing one farther and farther away from our goal. It is my mission to help you work on your anger to strengthen you in effectively creating a more wholesome, healthy way of interacting with the universe, improving your relationship skills and allowing life to unfold in a safer,smoother fashion.

Anger can tell us a lot about ourselves and areas in our life that may be frustrating or upsetting or it may be a sign of deep sadness that we have not paid enough attention to. Working with you in a psychodynamic relational approach, I work collaboratively with you in a non judgmental way to identify and understand your triggers better. Once we've identified the source, we can work together on finding more positive ways of communicating with ourselves and those around us, learning better ways to meet our needs or heal from past, painful wounds. Ultimately, working with clients to find their sources of positive strength and coping in order to see themselves in a new way.

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.

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.
