Therapists Specializing in Self Harm in Denver

Self-harm, also called self-injury, is where someone deliberately injures themself in a way that is not intended to end their life. In many cases, people use self-harm as a way of coping with or expressing overwhelming emotions. However, it poses a risk and danger to the individual’s safety, and people often end up feeling worse. Self-harm is also associated with various mental health conditions, including depression, anxiety, borderline personality disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, eating disorders, and psychotic disorders.

The therapists below can help individuals increase awareness of and understand the reasons for self-harm. In therapy, individuals learn to identify triggers, develop safer and healthier coping strategies, implement self-soothing techniques, and bolster communication skills. Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) are probably the best-known, most effective treatment approaches for self-harm, although therapeutic approaches vary among therapists and depend on each individual’s specific challenges.

I am so glad you're here! I want you to know that you are not crazy- you are sensitive in a traumatic world. So many of the experiences we have as women get downplayed by our culture and, therefore, are not supported in a way that facilitates mental health. Over time, these can accumulate and manifest as anxiety, rage, depression, and disconnection. This is why it is so important to rest into healing support and address life transitions and losses as they happen, so that you can show up wholeheartedly in your beautiful life!

I specialize in trauma and PTSD, depression and anxiety, and addictions. I'm a real human, and I'll treat you like one, too. You'll probably cry a bit, laugh a bit more, and feel heard and understood along the way. You'll leave therapy more equipped to manage the vortex that life can throw at you.

I am certified in EMDR, a multi-purposeful therapy especially useful in helping people overcome the negative effects of trauma. Also helpful in the management of tough feelings and addictive behaviors, EMDR is one of the most evidence-based therapies counselors have to offer. I also utilize traditional and effective talk therapy.

Embodied healing places YOU in the role of healer. I don’t believe, no, in fact I know, that I do not have any superpower to change your past and present suffering, nor transform your pain into peace. I aim to inspire the container to help facilitate the most powerful tool you will need for healing: the relationship you have with you.

In this relationship you will learn to honor the knowing of both the mind AND body, and therefore lessen the stress caused by rejecting, or even hating, the parts of yourself that “don’t fit” or “aren’t successful”. You’ll learn to reclaim your value, assert your worth and redefine what success means to you.

NO MORE accommodating, assimilating, over-giving for a temporary fix of approval. NO MORE choosing to be one way or the other. It’s time to be all of you.
This relationship calls upon the inner knowing and intuition you already possess that has been silenced for too long and needs to take up space.

In working with me, you will learn that to be in connection with your body is power; to be present with and feel the range of your emotional experiences generates vibrancy; and to no longer let the doubts of mind and ego dictate your behaviors and actions creates peace. You will learn that giving yourself permission to be and feel all that you are and do, is not selfish or heroic, but necessary.

My own healing journey from being quiet, shy and ashamed to exist to becoming a leader, risk-taker, and at times the loudest one in the room, gives me the insiders scoop that this journey is not easy-- in fact, it can feel unraveling and painful. Pain that you can and will, survive. I am honored to support my clients as they rearrange to honor their true essence and integrate all of their inherent gifts to become the powerful and emotional beings they were always meant to be.

It would be my greatest privilege to witness you on your healing journey.

My motto in therapy, and in life, is "whatever works!" What works for us in certain times of our lives no longer continues to works, and we need to shift gears. I'm casual and transparent with my clients. I believe that the relationship between client and therapist is the most critical part of therapy. If there isn't a connection, it won't work. I will always let you know if believe we aren't a good fit, or if I believe someone else would be better suited to helping you with your particular struggles.

I've had quite a unique life and believe that this is part of what enables me to relate to almost anyone. I am straightforward and honest - not something everyone wants or likes! I will work as hard as you will and be as committed to making changes as you are!

Welcome! I believe that one of the most important components to good therapy is a safe, attuned environment in which you can receive strategic support in hearing your own voice. Often, we dismiss our voice or intuition. Therapy can be a place to allow our true emotions to be expressed, enabling us to hear what we may not be listening to in our everyday life. Together, we will uncover the often unspoken and align with your true values.

In these demanding and rapidly changing times, we can easily start to feel lost, overwhelmed, and unsure. Finding moments to breathe, (re)connect, and recharge can seem like a luxury. In choosing to start therapy, you are creating that precious time to slow down and take care of yourself. I hope to provide you that safe space to explore your goals, hopes, and fears. Through therapy, you may discover what feels missing as well as how to celebrate your strengths. We will work together to determine the path forward and find the tools that best help you reconnect with your life.
