My expertise in intensive transformational therapy and is rooted in the cross section of cutting edge neuroscience and age old wisdom.
I have been helping individuals and couples transform their lives for over 25 years. My work is holistic. We target the root causes of your distress rather than skimming the surface level of symptoms. Only when root causes are addressed can symptoms dissolve. We dive deeply into the core issues that are keeping you stuck, disconnected and dissatisfied in your life and relationships. The process is efficient, effective, respectful, safe and profound. My ideal clients are people who are passionate about healing and releasing patterns that no longer serve them.

Kristin’s expertise is in working with adults and adolescents experiencing anxiety, adjustment difficulties, obsessive and intrusive thoughts, depression, self-harming behaviors, disordered eating, and trauma and loss.
“The good life is a process, not a state of being. It is a direction not a destination.” Do you find yourself wondering what you can do to feel better—less anxious, more confident, even happy? It seems like you’ve tried everything but nothing seems to work, at least not for very long. You may be able to support others yet you fall short on supporting yourself. You no longer feel like yourself and worry that it could get worse. Imagine what it would feel like not to constantly worry and to be confident in your ability to handle challenging situations. Therapy is a step in practicing self-awareness and self-care.

Pain is an unavoidable and a necessary part of life. But suffering -- especially prolonged, "punishing" suffering -- is not. So many people seeking therapy suffer from anxiety, depression, difficulties in relationships, and self-sabotaging behaviors. We use defenses to avoid our emotions. Ironically emotions aren't the SOURCE of pain but in fact are there to HELP us HEAL from the painful losses, hurts and challenges of life. You don't come to therapy to talk about your week. You come for relief from your suffering, for a chance to work through and find meaning in your pain and, just as with a broken bone, heal stronger and better!

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