Are you struggling with difficult emotions? Feeling overwhelmed or stressed? Struggling with relationships or lashing out? When we are struggling sometimes these emotions come out as negative behaviors, i.e. dishonesty, anger management, aggression, & difficulty connecting with others. Have you ever noticed taking our struggles on those closest to us and/or anyone attempting to support us? Working with parents and teens together to understand one another, rebuilding these family relationships is my goal as your therapist.

Welcome! I'm so glad you clicked on my profile. Taking a moment to look for support is important self-care! Therapy is a place of refuge and solace; a place to slow down to take a closer look at what has not been fulfilling, what has caused pain, what has lingered and now surfaces as problematic. It's a place to address underlying relationship patterns, trauma, losses, etc. with compassionate support. It is ALSO a place to honor what you have become even in spite of what has left you feeling "stuck," anxious, lost, sad, overwhelmed, fearful, alone, etc.

I am currently on a waitlist for individual therapy. The decision to seek treatment is not an easy one because the therapeutic process requires you to share your experiences, emotions and concerns with someone whom you've just met. I'm aware that this is often what makes people hesitant to attend therapy and I am hopeful that my personality as a therapist will help you to feel comfortable enough to participate in sessions with me. I am passionate about my profession as a Licensed Professional Counselor and I'm dedicated to helping adults and young adults find balance in their lives and happiness in their relationships.

Accepting new clients! You can no longer show up "in parts" and compartmentalize your life based on everyone else's comfort. It's bullsh!t and you know it, and you've hit a wall but have no idea where to even start. You can't wait 7 sessions to assess whether or not THIS is the time that you can FULLY unload the things that weigh you down and keep you up at night full of shame, fear, and anger. You don't have that kind of time. And you definitely don't have the capacity. You're ready to dive in and do the work, but need to feel safe. This can be that space for you. Where you can finally grow, as a whole human, rather than in parts.

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.
