A Safe Place for Cutters Blog


Meet Foresteen Forbes

photo-for-prime-timeI am a psychologist who works with individuals who cut and exhibit other self-harm behaviors at a state hospital in California.

I find it gratifying to work with this population because although they do not easily trust … once that trust is earned they open up and share themselves which is a wonderful gift. 

People who cut almost always have a history of past physical, emotional and/or sexual abuse.

Not being able to trust one’s orignial caregivers makes it hard to trust anyone resulting in feelings of tremendous isolation.

I want to be  able to create online resources that can help cutters feel connected to others and create a community that can give them the opportunity to feel understood by others. 

To a Life Worth Living.
