I currently have limited availability (some late morning/early afternoon spots) and offer a waitlist, if appropriate. At some point in all of our lives we find ourselves in a challenging and dark place. It can be hard to know what to do and we are often embarrassed to tell others about it. Know that you don't need to go through this alone; it takes a lot of courage to seek support. Talking with someone who is removed from the situation and is non-judgmental can help. Let me stand beside you and together we can work towards navigating out of this darkness and finding peace.

The stress of daily life can affect us in different areas; career, financial, relationship and family issues. As time passes, if we are not mindful of behaviors, things can fester increasing symptoms of anxiety, and depression. My approach is to unravel false belief systems, with either solution focused, and at the Client's choice, a psycho-dynamic, psychotherapy approach. Sometimes we need to look at the past. I believe it is acceptable to focus on present day solutions. Overwhelming feelings can be a detour to our true authentic selves. Counseling is to effectively set, and achieve, goals to be our true, unique, authentic selves.

I am a licensed clinical psychologist who specializes in comprehensive psychological and neuropsychological evaluation. Most referrals reflect concerns around life-long problems as well as recent changes in functioning that concern friends and family. Most of the time, patients and their families/supports are looking for empathy and clarification around real-world problems. This in-depth clarification allows for real-world treatment recommendations that can make a difference. Lengths are taken to minimize time in office. These include telephone and video interviews as well as electronically submitted forms and fact sheets.

What are your values? How can we work together to add more to your life consistent with those values? As a solo practitioner, I deliberately maintain a small client caseload to ensure I am fully able to attend to my clients’ needs. My areas of expertise include treatment of depression, anxiety, and interpersonal difficulties in adults.

My ideal client is feeling stuck and ready for a change. In time, I’m hopeful they would be open to exploring various part of their lives in a supportive environment to better understand themselves. It seems in time, my clients are able to recognize their own patterns of thinking and behaving and how that impacts them, as well as understanding the impact that various events had on their lives. Clients have told me I am understanding, non-judgmental, and empathetic.

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.
