You are a hard working person, you go to work everyday, you take care of your responsibilities and everyone thinks you have it all together but the truth is, you are struggling and often times you're sad. No one knows that the smile on your face and the laughter in your voice is a mask. You are afraid to show how you feel, so you hide it. Sometimes things are going great and you never want it to end, and other times it seems like nothing is going well. You feel like you are on an emotional roller coaster. Sometimes you say things and react to circumstances in a way you feel regret afterwards and, it has cost you relationships.

YOU are doing it! Congratulations! Finding a therapist is not easy. Let's face it, we (therapists) can all look the same in the search. This process is similar to finding your favorite pair of shoes. Think of your favorite pair of shoes. When you tried on your shoes, how did they fit? Snug? Loose? Did you walk around the store to try them out? When finding a therapist, the same traits apply. Some may prefer snug; others loose. Only you can know which therapy style works for you. Now your opportunity is here. Give yourself a hug! Again, Congratulations!

There are times in life where we all feel exposed, vulnerable, and unsure. Life can seem scary, frustrating, hopeless, and chaotic. We forget who we are or admit we don't know where we are going. Life experiences and our mindset can stop us from living. There are times when emotions run the show and lead to choices that make things worse.

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.
