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.

The definition of anger is "a strong feeling of annoyance, displeasure, or hostility". This feeling can cause us to experience problems at work, personal relationships and the quality of your life. It can lead to uncontrollable rage which can lead to unintended consequences. Life will be filled with frustration, pain, loss, and the unpredictable actions of others. You can't change that; but you can change the way you let such events affect you. Let your therapist at Starfish help you to navigate your journey.

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.

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.

Anger is a natural and normal use of emotion that helps you get in touch with that which you are feeling. The problem is that most people don't express their anger and let it build up. Then they express themselves through rages, screaming and just being out of control. Relationships become compromised and resentment and bitterness grows. To stop the pattern, you need to first learn to relax your mind and body. Second, you need to identify what is making you angry. Third, role play expressing your feelings in a positive manner. Fourth, learn to listen other's responses to your statements. Fifth, negotiate with calm to resolve the situation. Relax, think, before you respond.

Many of us learned in life that we're powerless, unable to change the very things that so deeply impact and hurt us, robbing us of happiness and success. It makes us angry, resentful, and full of rage. But you don't have to be a prisoner of that neverending dynamic. Learn to face you hurts, take responsibility for your needs, and tools for healthy, constructive emotional expression that builds relationships.

I work with individuals whose anger, a normal healthy emotion, has become out of control, destructive, and has begun or continues to dominate all aspects of their lives. Whether you feel your anger is just there below the surface all the time or if you don’t feel it at all until it erupts and you are flooded by it, I can help you gain more control. I offer a safe, nonjudgmental environment where we will identify your triggers, underlying issues, and work towards strategies that will help you gain more confidence in handling your anger, allowing your reactions to be an appropriate response to a normal emotion.

Do you find you have difficulty managing outbursts of anger? Or are you more prone to bottling your anger and sitting on it for hours or weeks on end allowing it to fester? Both of these are common responses to anger, and neither are beneficial. Anger management therapy can benefit you by helping you to learn that you can control the way in which you respond to your anger. Through exploring the underlying reasons for your anger you will gain useful knowledge to help you recognize your triggers. Furthermore, through mindfulness and cognitive behavioral approaches you will learn to channel your anger in a more productive way.

Anger is an emotion that we all experience and it can be help us relieve stress, motivate us, and express ourselves.

Our goal is to help teach you different ways to cope with the emotion to alleviate some of the negative repercussions that may come of the anger. We are here to help!

Helping you find wholeness...

Within driving distance of Nyack

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 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.

Anger Therapist

Mitchell Milch, LCSW

Psychotherapist/Couples Counselor

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.
