I am an clinical social worker and psychotherapist with almost 30 years of experience. My areas of interest include working with individuals who may have anger control problems. I also have expertise in chemical addictions and treating depression and anxiety. I believe for the treatment to be effective, the person needs to feel that the relationship with me is comfortable and safe. You can find out more about my background and the services I offer through my website at www.outlookassociates.com.

I have decided to focus on helping individuals with anger control problems since I am aware of the harmful effects of anger poorly processed and expressed. Also, since my approach tends to be cognitive-behavioral, I try to help people identify and work on specific goals.

I also have an office one day a week in downtown Boston.

Joe Pereira's Groups

Anger Management Group

The program consists of twelve weeks of comprehensive psycho-educational group therapy with a focus on cognitive-behavioral skills. The goal is to teach individuals about the dynamics of anger and aggression, how to assess the impact of resentment on their anger, and to identify and manage impulses to reduce the potential for aggression.
