I work with people who struggle with intense, unpleasant, difficult to manage emotions and the problematic behaviors that go with them. DBT is excellent for helping people think about and experience their emotions differently. I have the privilege every day of seeing people who had suffered, often for years, smooth out their lives and relationships. The overarching goal of DBT is to get through and past managing emotional pain and its ramifications and actually build a life worth living.

Therapy offers a chance to learn new ways to cope with emotionally charged challenges in life & process those things in life that keep us stuck. In our sessions, I'll help you identify & challenge self-defeating patterns that leave you stuck, unsatisfied, & less than your best. We'll develop a plan based on your needs & what you want out of therapy. I offer a supportive, nonjudgemental space for you to reflect, process, & grow. My approach is strength based, interactive, & collaborative, & I believe that authenticity, respect, & a sense of humor all contribute to a strong therapeutic relationship.

Are you noticing any of these issues with your child?: Anxiety, stress, low motivation, lack of confidence, poor self control, body image issues, poor time management, poor decision making, academic problems, parent- teen problems, failure to excel, & more. These are real issues teens face. And although there are times it seems like they are happy, you as a parent know there is something wrong. You are worried about your child. You find yourself up late thinking about what will happen if things continue this way. You are right to be concerned. If not addressed these can lead to unhappiness, broken relationships, anxiety, depression

My interests include working with children & adults who have mental health issues including but not limited to depression, anxiety, ADHD, relationship and family of origin issues, and other behavioral issues. I also have experience with substance abuse and domestic violence. If your issues are in an area that I do not feel comfortable in treating, I will refer to another clinician. Although counseling is an extremely personal experience, it is important to realize that our relationship is a professional rather than a personal one. This means that our time together will be limited to the scheduled sessions that you have with me.

Borderline Personality (BPD) Therapists

What is the most successful approach to treating borderline personality disorder?

Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) is considered the gold standard of treatment for borderline personality disorder. An evidence-based treatment, it addresses the extreme emotional reactivity, the relationship difficulties, and the acts of self-harm that create so much distress for BPD patients. DBT is a comprehensive program that includes both regular individual psychotherapy sessions and weekly group sessions of skills training.

What happens in treatment of borderline personality disorder?

Treatment typically consists of weekly individual therapy sessions that last an hour and group skill-focused instructional sessions that may last up to two hours. Patients are typically given homework “assignments” in which they are asked to practice in their daily life the skills they acquire in therapy. Patients also keep a diary tracking their emotions and impulses as a way to know which situations are most problematic and to help them gain control over their own behavior. Difficult situations and feelings are typically reviewed in therapy sessions and more constructive solutions found.

What kinds of problems does BPD treatment help with?

DBT was initially developed to dampen the self-destructive impulses of chronically suicidal patients. It is now the treatment of choice for borderline personality disorder, a serious condition marked by extreme emotional reactivity, relationship instability, and self-injurious behaviors. Treatment of BPD helps patients tolerate the flux of emotions without acting on them, often with a specific focus on tolerating negative emotions. DBT addresses the core problems of BPD—fear of abandonment, low self-esteem, and impulsivity.

What is the goal of treatment in borderline personality disorder?

The goal of treatment for borderline personality disorder (BPD) is to relieve the extreme emotional distress that patients experience—to curb their emotional reactivity, to minimize their inclination to self-harm, and to reduce their impulsivity. Toward these ends, patients are not only taught an array of new coping skills and techniques for emotional regulation, they are given opportunities to practice them. Another major goal of treatment is interpersonal effectiveness; patients learn and problem-solve ways to effectively communicate in relationships, especially how to ask for what they need as a way to minimize hurt feelings.
