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.

Issues with controlling anger have to do with impulse control. This is an issue of development, and suggests that those people who can't control their anger haven't successfully negotiated frustration tolerance early in life. Often, this failure has to do with difficulties that parents themselves had with the issue, as well as parental inadequacies with regard to tenderness and soothing, major ingredients that help establish emotional security and self esteem. I will help you explore the "red zones," the places your brain goes to when life issues trigger you to behave reflexively rather than thoughtfully, and to visualize consequences before taking action. www.ThriveTherapydoc.com

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.

Anger is often triggered by an underlying emotion such as sadness, disappointment but comes out in a way that protects these feelings. Some anger can be healthy; as in being angry enough at a growing waistline to sign up for the gym or speaking up when boundaries get crossed over and over. Through using cognitive behavioral therapy and mindfulness techniques, clients can learn to communicate in ways that meet their needs and still respect the needs of others.

Helping you find wholeness...

Within driving distance of Upper 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.

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 a natural, even healthy emotion. When managed properly, it can have a very positive effect on your life. In these sessions, you'll learn how to pause and recognize your anger in the moment before you have a chance to react to it. Anger is a fight or flight emotion. When we're in this state everything can begin to move very fast. Learning how to slow down, how to change the pace of the moment is the key to managing it. Once you master this, your anger will always be under your control.

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.

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.

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.
