I work with the client in regards to current anger, past history of anger, and family history of anger. I work with the client to identify current stress, and to especially identify emotions including sadness, fear, confusion, and to identify coping skills to either work with family members, a boss, or co-workers. I feel that improving communication skills, problem solving skills, and developing a strong support network are vital to better understand and work regarding anger in a healthy, non-threatening way.

On a scale of 0-10 when you are at a 4, 5 or 6 you are angry, when you are at an 8, 9 or 10 you are in a rage. Rage occurs when one upsetting event piles onto another and another, and you never have time to fully heal from any of them. Rage comes up quicker, builds stronger and lasts longer; you say and do things that you would never imagine at any other time. You see red and don’t care about your reputation, the future, the consequences or what effect it is having on your family or career. We focus on helping you to fully resolve your rage at it's root so that you can start having just normal anger - that gets your point across but doesn't do damage - like everybody else.

Healthy anger is intended to communicate a problem in relationship that needs attention. It is intended to say this is important take it seriously. Many people think of anger as the blaming, yelling, controlling behavior that is destructive to relationships, and prevents healthy communication. Those with a genuine desire to change can learn to manage their feelings in healthy ways that build rather then destroy relationships. I work with clients to help them identify and manage their feelings and needs and direct their actions toward self-confidence, and empathy for others.

Anger is both a natural and necessary emotion. It is a vital part of our preservation instinct. But when your anger causes troubles--say at work, in relationships, to your health-- it becomes critical that you develop new ways to address anger: methods that help decrease how frequently or intensely you get angry, and that lead to more effective responses to anger. Dr. Goldstein addresses anger from a realistic, practical perspective that can help you enjoy a healthier, more constructive approach to your life in the face of anger.
