I offer group therapy for clients dealing with Borderline Personality Disorder, as well as a BPD Family Support Group.
For the 22 last years I have worked successfully with adult clients dealing with a wide range of issues including marital and relationship problems, anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress, abuse issues, personality issues and mental health concerns. I believe a trusting relationship between the therapist and client is the foundation for all growth and change. However, the relationship itself is typically not sufficient. I will help you set goals for your therapy based upon what you would like to have different in your life, and together we will explore and change the blocks which have prevented you from achieving your goals.

My job as a therapist is to help you take a step back from your life through mindfulness and really get to the heart of what's going on. We'll look at the ways your inner critic has sabotaged your life so far, all the ways you try to appease your inner critic by shutting yourself down, and discover what your life could look like if you didn't have to worry about the voice of shame popping up. We'll do a deep dive into your history to discover where the inner critic came from and the core beliefs that keep it alive.

The needs of others come before your own? Sometimes, as children, we fundamentally altered who we were to adjust to trauma, role-reversals, and cold parenting. This can create an underdeveloped sense of self or we are sensitive the slightest shifts in the moods of others. Relationships are scary. When happiness finally starts to seep in, an overwhelming fear sets in that it will all collapse & disappear.

My primary focus in private practice is evaluation and assessment for a variety of psychological conditions, such as ADHD, Autism, Mood Disorders, Learning Disabilities and Personality Disorders. The second focus I have is treatment. I have an integrative approach to therapy in which I use multiple modalities that fit my clients’ individual needs. Some of the modalities I use are interpersonal therapy, supportive therapy, and cognitive behavioral therapy. I also view other factors that can affect the client, such as cultural, medical, and environmental factors.

All day you hear the critical voice of the eating disorder in your head, dictating what you can eat, how you should feel and what your allowed to do that day. It feels like a continuous battle that consumes your day and takes you away from what really matters to you. The committee in your head occupies your every thought and judges your every move. To make matters worse we live in a society that feeds the committee through diet culture. You struggle to take up space and letting others in to help you when you need it most. Your struggle is real and valid! This daily battle is exhausting and leaves you questioning reality.

No one comes to therapy when everything is amazing. Often, things come up that were not what we planned. Or we have feelings that are stronger than we imagined and we don't quite know how to handle them. Maybe you feel like your normal coping strategies are no longer doing the trick. Maybe therapy can help. Daisy lovingly and curiously approaches the issues that are getting in your way. She invites you to walk side by side as you move through things together.

Sadness, grief and worry are normal human experiences. However, when they endure for long periods of time or when you are overwhelmed by the effects of stress or trauma, if you have difficulty sleeping or concentrating or you feel hopeless or helpless, then it may be time to visit a skilled therapist.

Borderline Personality (BPD) Therapists
Borderline personality disorder is a chronic condition that may include mood instability, difficulty with interpersonal relationships, and high rates of self-injury and suicidal behavior. Borderline personality disorder (BPD) is characterized by pervasive instability in moods, interpersonal relationships, self-image, and behavior. This instability often disrupts family and work life, long-term planning, and an individual's sense of identity.
