Anger management seeks to enable you to control those explosive urges to destroy, obliterate, hurt, or injure when you're angry or provoked. While some of the work we do is cognitive or behavioral in orientation, other parts of the work are psychoanalytic, seeking to help us both reach and heal the deep wounds that engender such a tremendous and often overwhelming sense of rage. The benefits of bringing your anger under control are self-evident. You can expect improvements in the quality of your personal and professional relationships and will see overall strengthening of self esteem, compassion for self and others, and an overall improvement in your sense of stability and well-being.

One of the main tools I use with people to help them control anger, is mindfulness. Anger is a normal emotion; we all know what it feels like. No one can help how they feel, but they can certainly control what they do with these feelings. Mindfulness is a way to help people understand what is happening for them in the moment. Teaching people to stop and pause, as they become more aware of what is happening for them, is a way to help them make different choices, rather than jumping into the same patterns which have not been useful in their lives. There are other behavioral skills clients can use as well, but it all starts with slowing the process down and awareness of what is happening.

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.

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.

Helping you find wholeness...

Within driving distance of Wood Ridge

Not being able to control how you act or speak out of anger can be very damaging in some or all of your relationships (parent-child, with a significant other, among friends, even at work). Having uncontrollable anger and feeling angry all the time also does not feel good for the person with those feelings and it's possible to feel regret afterwards for what you have said or done. There is hope, however. Through exploring the anger and practicing techniques that you will learn, you can get to the stage where you can manage your anger (e.g. get angry about the right things and express it appropriately), leading back to a sense of wholeness and peace. Christopher and you can journey there.

Anger is an emotion that often viewed as an emotion to avoid or suppress. In my view, however, anger -- just like other emotion -- serves as an indicator as to how we really feel about a person or situation. In working with clients on anger-issues I encourage -- not the suppression of anger -- but rather the appropriate expression of it. The goal is to help clients own and feel their own anger and to use it in ways that helps advance their understanding of themselves and those who mean the most to them.

At times, we all express anger – it is a normal human emotion. It’s when we are constantly feeling angry, blowing up at loved ones or saying hurtful things, where we should proactively learn what is at the route of our anger. It is common for us to try “to get over something” when we are not “over it”, leaving things unsettled right below the surface. Many times what is beneath that anger is sadness, fear, and hurt. I help people identify and learn what is the source of their anger and how to genuinely express themselves from the heart. If you have been engaging in physically abusive/aggressive behavior, please seek help from a Family Violence Intervention Program.

Anger management refers to the process by which a person learns how to identify stressors, take necessary steps to remain calm, and handle tense situations in a constructive positive manner. The purpose of anger management is to help a person decrease the heightened emotional and physiological arousal often associated with anger. Through anger management therapy we will help provide a clear and distinct set of guidelines to help achieve positive and constructive responses rather than negative and destructive ones. We will help identify what triggers their anger and become aware of their emotional state prior to, while and after they are angry.

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.
