Whatever your reasons for seeking therapy, I assure you that no issue is too big or too small or too seemingly unrelated to your purpose to put it out there on the table. Going over it again in your own head can leave you feeling isolated and stuck. Through interaction there can be movement. I approach clients from a strengths perspective - everything you need is already there; it's never, ever, too late to gain the clarity you seek and the life you want.

I have been successful in helping client's reach their full potential when struggling with life events that can lead to anxiety, depression, insomnia, PTSD, addiction, and marital conflicts. When confronted with life stressors, many humans have the tendency to stuff their emotions with drug, alcohol, and food addictions which negatively impact their life and loved ones. I look forward to helping you navigate life's journey and embracing the mind, body, and soul experience in order to work towards a harmonious and rewarding life. Together we can make lasting changes for a healthier lifetime, however the choice is yours!

“The best years of your life are the ones in which you decide your problems are your own. You do not blame them on your mother, the ecology, or the president. You realize that you control your own destiny.” ― Albert Ellis. Oftentimes what hinders us from moving forward toward our goals is our own thoughts; memories of failure or even a perception of potential failure can keep us frozen in a pattern of stagnation, which can increase feelings of depression, anxiety and low self-worth.

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.
