I therapeutically treat the following: professional men and women with strong self-critical narratives, individuals who have been or currently are in abusive relationships, individuals struggling with self-harm (cutting, binge/purge cycles, addictions with drugs and alcohol or porn), anyone with difficulty regulating emotions, relational infidelity and healing thereafter.
The simple truth is you have to feel safe with me to get anywhere in therapy. We will be a great fit if you are looking for safety, growth, esteem in SELF, and healing. Bring your honesty and plan on an integration of what you learn in session into life.

Hi there and congratulations on taking the sometimes daunting step towards finding a therapist. I don't know you, but I know that takes courage. My style as a therapist can be described as collaborative, curious, responsive, warm, and above all else, human. Although we are all experiencing this roller coaster-thing called life, I know that no two stories or individuals are the same. I am genuinely curious about my clients and what makes them who they are, which leads way to individualized care and true understanding.

Accepting new clients for in-person or telehealth therapy services! Sometimes life throws us difficult circumstances that are beyond our control, and it can leave us with feelings of hopelessness. These “stuck” moments of adversity can also be viewed as our greatest opportunities for personal growth, and I genuinely believe every client can benefit from this philosophy. Ultimately, once the dust settles from our initial trauma, our character can be measured by our level of determination and how we choose to respond to adverse life experiences, of course, with the appropriate guidance/support from our support system.

I believe one of the bravest things you can do is to understand your own story and break free from the traps that hold us back from change. You are brave because you are here. One quote that resonates with me is from Carl Whitaker, who once wrote, “Until you break with your patterns, the rut continues to deepen. Life goes on, but living dies”. Throughout my career, I have witnessed how being unheard and misunderstood creates a sense of feeling judgment and shame. I want to help by creating a space for healing and advancement by honoring that those experiences are a source of pain.

Sometimes it is hard for parents and children to understand each other's needs, wants and desires within the family relationship at any age, let alone effectively communicate our feelings in kind, respectful language without hurting others. As adults we may worry about how we look and seem to others, or have some other underlying issue we aren't comfortable sharing with others or may struggle to build deeper meaningful relationships to build our support network. Most clients have struggles fitting in socially, have relationship problems at home or just need someone besides a partner, or parent to talk to.

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 Cedar Rapids or for someone who self harms, or cuts themselves, or bangs or hits themselves, these Cedar Rapids therapists provide counseling for self harming in Cedar Rapids. They include therapists, who understand self harming in Cedar Rapids, psychologists and counselors. They can provide self harming counseling in Cedar Rapids or treatment for self harming.
