14 yr old daughter doing self harm

My daughter is cutting herself and talks about suicide.  She had been in Counciling for 3 months. She refuses to talk with councilor about it and all she tells me is she blames me and is my fault.  Granted I've made plenty mistakes. I've apologized all I can.  How can I keep her safe

Take your daughter to the ER ASAP!  She requires psychiatric hospitalization.Whether your daughter opens up to a therapist shouldn't be a factor as to whether to get her help.  Obviously, the outpatient treatment isn't intensive enough.  Always take self-harm and talks of suicide very serious.  As I said, go to the ER now before it is too late!
