Anger is a completely normal, usually healthy, human emotion. But when it gets out of control and turns destructive, it can lead to problems at work, in relationships and in the overall quality of your life. But you don’t have to feel helpless in the face of an unpredictable and destructive force in your life. I work to help you heal the root cause of your anger. You’ll find understanding and compassion for the pain in yourself and your healing can begin. With healing comes understanding and compassion for others, and the return of the sense of control and calm in your life.

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.

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.

Patricia Schneider, Dr., Ph. D.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

I address problems of aggression targeting the psychological mechanisms that allow an individual to control the behavioral outcome of anger arousal. Patience, exhibiting composure, engaging in constructive problem solving, pausing for thought, and visualizing consequences are some of the desired results. The individual will practice new strategies for responding to provocations. The methods I utilize are not intended for severe aggression or for disordered behavior but rather are intended to reduce counterproductive behaviors that arise in ordinary people in day to day situations.

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.

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.

I help clients become more conscious and less reactive in their interactions. I teach clients specific strategies to break destructive patterns of relating and give them tools to communicate effectively. I also teach clients how to self-soothe. Within the safety of the therapeutic relationship, clients will explore the root of their anger and underlying emotions that are being expressed as anger or rage.

Clinical Psychologist

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.

Licensed Psychologist

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 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.
