Thoughts about dying can be overwhelming. Often, a person feels as if these type of thoughts and actions must remain a secret; shame and guilt can just add to the pain.
When experiencing this type of distress, those around you might either avoid it, or act in a way that makes you wish you hadn’t shared.
Therapy Can Help
Non-judgment, openness, and compassion form the foundation of my approach when working with suicidal thoughts and self-harm. I can help you understand what drives your distressing thoughts and actions, and work to make changes that don’t just cover the pain, but help resolve it. I will also help ensure that you are safe, utilizing a variety of skills that are proven to help you manage your distress in a way that prevents restrictions or hospitalizations.
After helping you develop the skills needed to manage your distress, I can help you take the time to understand why you experience these symptoms in the first place. Effective therapy goes beyond symptom relief. I can help you find growth and healing so that these symptoms are no longer needed.
