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.
