Therapists Specializing in Self Harm in Texas

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.

Hello, and welcome to my practice! I am excited to meet you and look forward to developing a relationship with you!

Even though the work may be difficult, you will see your self-confidence and relationships improve. I love helping people use their creativity to heal themselves. Even people who have no idea they might be innovative typically find a spark that is original to them. We will discuss what you want to receive from your relationships and how to achieve those goals. Therapy is a process and a journey, but your efforts will empower you to grow in ways you never thought possible!

One of the founding principles of my practice and my own therapeutic style is that emotion and rationality are not necessarily separate ideals, but rather that they assist each other to help a person make wise decisions. This principle can apply to as little a thing as what to eat for breakfast or as large a thing as what career to follow or who to marry or what choices to help your children make.

While therapy can be a humbling concept and often a difficult process, it also reaps great rewards. I enjoy seeing my clients make progress. As your therapist, I hope to assist you on your journey to live a happier and more peaceful life.

When it comes to beginning a healing journey, I like to say that I've been on "both sides of the couch". Beginning to trust someone brand new with some of the most challenging parts of your life can feel vulnerable and risky. I'm here to earn that trust and show you that there is safety in letting someone else in to help you on your journey. While I'll never presume to know exactly what your experience feels like, I'll strive to understand it on a level that allows for connection and encouragement, and I'll always do my best to remind you that you're not alone.

Hello folks, I hope we can form a therapeutic relationship in order for me to provide you with my clinical expertise and lifetime of experiences in order for you to improve the quality of your life in order for you to thrive!

Through Cognitive Restructuring, I can teach you the skills to prevent those negative anxiety-producing thoughts from ruminating out of control until you find yourself down that old familiar “rabbit hole” that we can’t get out of.

As a biracial adopted individual, who has experienced significant past trauma, I can certainly relate to ethnic identity and cultural related concerns from a Trauma-Informed lens.

But wait, there’s more! As part of the LGBTQI+ community, I can provide guidance and therapy to individuals who struggle with sexual or gender identity concerns.

Hope to see you soon!

-Kennedy
