Cutting & Self Harm

Find Your Counselor


Self-harm and cutting are often misunderstood as attention-seeking behavior, when, in actuality, these are symptoms of deep emotional pain. Individuals who self-harm – typically teens and young adults – tend to feel disconnected from the world around them.

The physical pain caused by self-injury allows the individual to temporarily escape feelings of loneliness and pain that may be difficult to deal with, or perhaps actually feel something when they are otherwise numb.

If you have the urge to self-harm, you are no doubt familiar with the shame and guilt that follows, along with the eventual return of the emotional pain you were seeking to escape. If you are the parent of a child who self-injures, then you may be filled with confusion, fear and worry about why your child would want to self-harm. At Lifeologie, we seek to work with and support the entire family in this difficult and confusing situation. Our counselors work with self-harming clients to create a plan for reducing “self-injurious behaviors” while developing healthier coping skills.

Signs and Symptoms

  • inexplicable injuries or scars
  • wearing long sleeves/pants, even in hot weather
  • frequent "accidents"
  • emotional instability/unpredictability
  • statements of helplessness or worthlessness

How does Lifeologie help?

Discuss your concerns with our intake specialists.

When you reach out to a Lifeologie, you’ll be connected with one of our Intake Specialists. In a “call center?” No way. Our specialists are each located in their local Lifeologie office and know the counselors well. Their entire job is to learn about you and what you’re looking for and to match you with the counselor who will be the very best fit for your needs and preferences.

Find a counselor that is passionate about helping you reach your mental health goals.

Our counselors are literally the cream of the crop. We get hundreds of applications every year to intern and work at our offices. Lifeologists are counselors, life coaches and overall wellness advocates who are experts and specialists in their craft. At the intern level, they have set themselves apart as incredible learners and collaborators, chasing after the highest-level trainings in the field. From EMDR to nutrition coaching to brain spotting and addiction specialists, we have you covered. Once you enter a Lifeologie office, you’ll find that we’ve carefully curated the environment to feel modern, comfortable and inviting. Counseling at Lifeologie is not your typical counseling experience – in any way.

Receive continuous support and guidance as you go on your mental health journey.

Your counselor at Lifeologie will meet you wherever you are, whether you’re just starting in counseling for the first time ever… or returning to a life-long counseling journey after a brief break. Your Lifeologist will partner with you to meet your goals. As you learn and grow, we can help you focus on overall wellness through mindfulness practices such as Psychotherapeutic Yoga or mindful eating. Wherever you are, we can come alongside and help you move forward!
