I believe people are generally quite resilient and have a natural capacity to heal from trauma and stress. But often these stressors will take a toll on well being, accumulating over time. Symptoms may show up as depression, anxiety, relationship tension, health conditions and/or a self-harming behavior. I welcome your call to discuss your personal needs and whether my approach might be a good fit. I'll do my best to help you get connected to the most optimal resources for your unique circumstances.

Change is hard! Isn't the alternative worse? Life can be very challenging and demanding. It can even seem extremely overwhelming. The good news is you don't have to feel alone. Seeking help is a sign of courage and strength, which I foster in practice. I offer assistance in finding ways to manage your stressors in ways that work for you. Improving self-esteem, learning to cope, and managing emotions is all possible. I won’t promise it will be easy (therapy rarely is). But I can promise you, it will be worth it.

Are you emotionally exhausted and mentally drained from constantly being more concerned with others’ wants and needs while yours get dismissed? Do you second guess decisions because it’s hard to trust your own opinion? I bet it would feel like such a relief to not worry about what others are thinking about you. I GET IT! My clients have either had a chaotic childhood or a single traumatic experience that has altered their self perception. They have so much compassion for others, yet struggle to turn it inward. They want to “love themselves”, but continue to engage in behaviors that make them feel less than.

It includes cutting, burning, scratching, banging or hitting yourself, interfering with wound healing, and the ingestion of toxic substances or objects.

They include therapists, who understand self harming in Laguna Niguel, psychologists and counselors. They can provide self harming counseling in Laguna Niguel or treatment for self harming.
