We specialize in all your self-harming counseling needs

Self-harming behaviors (such as cutting, burning or head-banging) are deliberate acts meant to harm one’s own body.  Self-harming behaviors are typically not meant as suicide attempts. Rather, self-injury is an unhealthy way to cope with emotional pain, intense emotions and/or stress that are not being regulated appropriately, disassociation  and, at times, punishment to oneself.  Additionally, because self-injury is often done impulsively, it can be considered an impulse-control behavior problem. Self-injury may be linked to a variety of mental disorders, such as depression, eating disorders and borderline personality disorder.

Self-harm includes anything you do to intentionally injure yourself.
