When you or family members are hurting, you need competent, experienced psychological help. Training and experience for a doctor of psychology is significantly different than that of masters level counselors. While there are good counselors for certain types of clients, you want a doctor's perspective for your assessment and treatment. I bring a caring heart and years of experience in private practice to our sessions. Furthermore, my training includes graduate level education focusing upon the integration of psychology and faith. Get the expertise and experience you need in a consultant. Contact me to get your healing started.

Are you or a loved one struggling with stress, anxiety or depression? Are your coping skills helping or hurting you? In life, we all experience times when we struggle whether it be with guilt, shame, grief/loss, relationship issues or adjustment to change. With a little help, we can move through this and get to a brighter life. In the 20 years I have been a therapist I have helped many people with these issues. One of my favorite quotes is “If you always do what you always did, you will always get what you always got. If you want something different, do something different.” Counseling is the process that can help with this.

It is interesting how life can take us in different directions. Some that may be exciting and new, then there are times when we come across a challenge that may be difficult to handle on our own; we are unable to deal with it. Counseling can assist in the process of managing one's feelings, challenges and struggles. You do not need to manage this on your own, talking with someone can help with giving you direction, help you understand why you are feeling this way and how to make things better for yourself and /or others around you

“Tell me, what is it that you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?” The poet Mary Oliver nails us with this question. Not being afraid of the wild, and finding your way to the precious, requires your most curious, present and compassionate self. When that self eludes you—which it does for all of us now and then—it’s lonely and frightening. Where did your clarity and intuition go? Why can’t you feel yourself anymore?

Self-Harming Therapists
Self-harm (SH) or deliberate self-harm (DSH) is the deliberate infliction of damage to your own body. It includes cutting, burning, scratching, banging or hitting yourself, interfering with wound healing, and the ingestion of toxic substances or objects. While self injury (SI) can look like suicide, it's not; most people who mutilate themselves do it as a way to regulate mood. People who hurt themselves in this way may be motivated by a need to distract themselves from inner turmoil, or to quickly release anxiety that builds due to an inability to express intense emotions.

If you're looking for help with self-harming in Venice or for someone who self harms, or cuts themselves, or bangs or hits themselves, these Venice therapists provide counseling for self harming in Venice. They include therapists, who understand self harming in Venice, psychologists and counselors. They can provide self harming counseling in Venice or treatment for self harming.
