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.

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.

In the framework I use, when anger becomes a chronic issue that has consistently had negative repercussions, that means that it has become a true addiction -- an 'emotional' addiction, that is often no less destructive than other, well-known addictions such as alcohol and drug addiction. Indeed, anger addiction not uncommonly can lead to various kinds of substance abuse. I have a powerful and novel method to deal with anger issues that has been extremely effective for my clients.

Repeated anger can be costly, both physically and emotionally. As chronic anger makes people rigid and highly defensive, it is likely to have a negative effect on your health, to damage your relationships with others and to limit your life experiences and ability to achieve happiness. Anger can hinder, wear down, or even destroy intimate relationship. At the same time, anger can serve as an opportunity for individual growth and enhance intimate relationship. Managing emotions, specifically anger, improves our skills to resolve anger and conflict while enabling us to develop more healthy and happy relationships.

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.

Helping you find wholeness...
124 East 40th Street, Ste 404, New York, New York 10016
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.

We all have certain emotions that are easier for us to express than others. While some have difficulty expressing anger, others find it the "safest" emotion to express. For those of you who have problems managing your angry expression we will explore together, how and when this pattern has developed, what purpose it has served in your life, and what other feelings this anger may be masking. Our work together will provide you with tools to healthily and respectfully express the full range of your emotions to enhance the emotional richness and range in your relationships with others.

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.

Anger is normal emotion that everyone experiences. It becomes a problem when one expresses anger inappropriately or one lacks the proficiency to express any emotions but anger. I use Humanistic and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) to help my clients understand their anger, improve their emotional experience, and express their emotions in healthy ways. A healthy emotional life is the cornerstone of living a full and successful life.

Anger Management is a specialty of our center. Research indicates that anger problems can be made worse by therapists practicing ineffective techniques. So you wan to be sure your clinician is practicing the right form of anger management. The good news is there is also plenty of scientific support to show that effective anger management can reduce anger symptoms in as few as 12-20 sessions. In fact, a study published by one of our staff members indicated that in addition to anger being reduced, but depression symptoms decreased as well. If you, or a loved one, suffer from anger problems, please call us with any questions you may have. We understand how far reaching these issues can be.

Anger can compromise relationships, jeopardize jobs, and put your life at risk. Anger is often a mask for other emotions that may be more painful to deal with such as depression. By helping you understanding the underlying causes of your anger, you can significantly reduce it, learn more effective ways to manage it, and avoid circumstances that trigger it.
