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.

Why is it that some people can be rational when faced with adversity and others become completely unglued? Often the anger is justified but when we become irrational and violent we have lost control of our power...not enhanced it. For some people learning how to process anger into rational thought and reasonable action is a difficult prospect. Our job is to learn about our triggers and find healthier ways to respond to adversity. I always remind my patients that we are allowed all of our thoughts no matter how out of control they may sound. What can't be allowed is acting on those thoughts in inappropriate and unhealthy ways. We must somehow find the Pause button.

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

Anger can become part of your everyday life due to past history, family conflict, work issues, substance use, etc and anger can also affect all of these spheres of your life. With the use of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), mindfulness, play therapy (for children) and solution-focused techniques we will work together to reduce and resolve the reasons for your anger along with learning coping skills for future anger as this is a nature feeling that all humans experience so that you can move forward in life on a more positive path.

"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.

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.

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 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 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.

If you or your child have difficulties with anger, you know how devastating it can be to relationships, friendships, work and school life. Most people with anger issues, are otherwise good people, who are embarrassed and ashamed of the way they erupt! Why do nice people end up with anger problems? Often temper issues are related to other difficulties like impulse control issues stemming from ADHD, low self-esteem, poor modeling in their own families, childhood trauma, depression, or anxiety. I believe in a comprehensive approach which aims to change anger responses, as well as identify and address the underlying issues.

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.
