"We are hard-wired for connection and so I focus on couple, family and individual relationships. At their best, our close relationships feel like home - safe and secure places where joy and support abound. When relationships feel strained, or you’ve lost a sense of safety and stability, we struggle. In your partnership, you may be experiencing disconnection, repetitive fights, mistrust, infidelity, lack of intimacy, or loss of emotional connection. In my work with couples, I connect with each of your perspectives, working as a translator for your emotional needs and hurts, and helping you heal any fractures of trust or old wounds."

Given the transient and dense population of the Northern Virginia community, our school aged population puts immense pressure on themselves to succeed socially, academically, and athletically. Many students that I've worked with in the school and private practice setting are dealing with depression, anxiety, stress, trauma, relationship issues, or something else."

Joy can fade from our lives, and some of us isolate as we question who we are and where we fit in. If we knew how to make positive changes, we would jump at the chance -- we can't just "snap out of it" as some might suggest.

Self-Harming (Cutting) 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 Fairfax or for someone who self harms, or cuts themselves, or bangs or hits themselves, these Fairfax therapists provide counseling for self harming in Fairfax.
