The initial process of looking for a therapist can be overwhelming, but it is also a great and exciting opportunity for a new beginning. My approach is warm, accepting, empathetic and client-centered. Of great interest to me is the topic of fitting into life as it is today, whether you are from another state, another country, or see yourself outside the mainstream of your family or workplace. I work with diverse populations, adolescents, adults, and couples.

The cornerstone of my approach is one that brings focus to the importance of a supportive therapeutic relationship as this can be a key element in helping one discover a life that is uniquely authentic and valuable. Utilizing a strategic mix of historical experiences and patterns with present day struggles and stress, individuals are able to expand on their strengths and challenge negative core beliefs. In my work with couples, I offer guidance on how to create vulnerable, interdependent relationships as I understand this is often the foundation for a safe and fulfilling connection.

My years of professional practice and world view have a significant influence on how I provide psychotherapy today. We are all unique in our individual strengths and talents, as well as our specific challenges. We each have our own beliefs, thoughts, and feelings. In therapy, you will have the opportunity to explore who you are today, the struggles that bring you into therapy and where you would like to be in the future. My commitment to you is in respecting your decisions, meeting you "where you're at", and to provide a safe place where you're free to identify and "try out" different perspectives.

I work with folks of all ages, and have a particular excitement for working with young folks. I see anyone ages 8+. I love to work with folks around issues of gender and sexual identity exploration, mood regulation, trauma healing, and polyamorous/non-monogamous relationship issues. I also enjoy supporting kids in out of home placement and/or have a history of trauma, kids labelled with "behavioral" problems, and folks who have had poor experiences with mental health professionals in the past.

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.
