Nightmares, flashbacks, self-harming, or dissociation are all symptoms we can treat with these tools.
My clients seek assistance when they need to change something that's not working for them, to develop self-awareness, or to better understand their own potential. If you are sad or anxious, we will find ways to overcome those difficulties. If you want your future to look different, we will see where changes need to be made today. If something in your past keeps you from being successful now, then we will focus on resolving issues from your past. I also provide supervision to LGPCs as a Maryland Approved Clinical Supervisor.

Welcome! I work with a wide variety of individuals that are looking for more insight into their thoughts, feelings, and behavior patterns, and I specifically enjoy working with adult women with a history of childhood trauma.

Perhaps you have struggled for a long time with getting your impulses under control, relationships never seems to work out, and chaos and crisis seems to follow you wherever you go. By working through holistic and trauma focused lenses, I can help you make positive changes.

The way we experience our lives around us, is vastly shaped by our past learned experiences, especially as children and teenagers. Ideally, a child should learn how to navigate the world with confidence, feels secure and safe, skillfully assured of his/her own ability to problem solve. When someone suffers from anxiety, depression or personality disorders, he/she have been forced to develop different set of skills, mostly on his/her own, designed to defend the body against either perceived or real traumatic events. As a result, their views of themselves and, the world and others, becomes rigid, distorted and generalized.

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