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

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.

Anger is valuable, it tells us clearly that we need to address a situation or concern. However, when we let anger overcome our ability to regulate it, we begin down an unhealthy path both within ourselves and with others. I aim to teach client skills to reduce the intensity associated with their anger and help with the thinking process. We strive to find and understand situation in a more balanced way that can lead to effective resolution.

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.

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.

Anger tends to get labelled negatively in our culture, often being described as a "negative emotion", or seen as something dangerous or to be denied. Yet the truth is, like all emotions, anger plays a vital role in our psychological system. It serves as a warning that something important to us feels threatened. It can motivate us to take action to correct something negative that is happening. Prevalent negative attitudes about anger contribute to many people getting insufficient practice in identifying and communicating about anger effectively. At my Pleasantville office I provide individual, family and couples counseling for issues related to anger management in adults and children.

"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.

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.

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.

Being angry and losing control of ones behavior is mostly a learned habit. Anything learned can be unlearned. I will work with you in a cognitive and behavioral way to break and change this habit to a more functional and acceptable way to express yourself. We will also look at where and how you learned this behavior how you decided to give yourself permission to behave in this manner.

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.

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.

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 is a specialty of our center. Research indicates that anger problems can be made worse by therapists practicing ineffective techniques. So you wan to be sure your clinician is practicing the right form of anger management. The good news is there is also plenty of scientific support to show that effective anger management can reduce anger symptoms in as few as 12-20 sessions. In fact, a study published by one of our staff members indicated that in addition to anger being reduced, but depression symptoms decreased as well. If you, or a loved one, suffer from anger problems, please call us with any questions you may have. We understand how far reaching these issues can be.

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.

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.

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.

Anger management is a growing problem in our culture. I utilize both individual and group therapy to help people learn to deal with their own anger and the anger of others. People are often convinced their anger is a good thing, until they lose important relationships or get fired from jobs. The first thing I do is show them the many ways their anger is harming them and others. I use many techniques to do this, including analysis, confrontation, video, role play and practice with constructive communication. In time they learn to express themselves in ways that resolve rather than inflame situations.
