I am a licensed psychologist with a passion for helping people who are struggling with behaviors and negative thought patterns that prevent them from reaching their important life goals. I recognize that a number of factors in one's life can result in unhealthy coping strategies and behaviors that interfere with the ability to form healthy, rewarding relationships, positive self-esteem, and ability to thrive. I have studied and taught DBT skills for 10 + years and have been delighted to see clients progress and gain a sense of mastery over their emotions and lives through the use of DBT and other treatment modalities that I employ.

I have over twenty years of experience working with people, 18-elders. I believe that therapy is an adventure, where one chooses to go, regardless of not knowing the way. Through the relationship this awareness is brought together by truth, compassion, humor, and some pain. The therapist serves as a guide, modeling and teaching the individual a more effective way of living. I see the individual as someone with a whole life that exists beyond the therapy session. The relationship, which fosters hope is a non-judgmental environment, that underlies all the work that is undertaken.

My preferred method of treatment includes providing patients and their families the opportunity to gain awareness in the area of addiction and dual diagnosis treatment. Patients are involved in treatment modalities that include individual, group and family counseling. However, my services are also available to the loved one of addicted patients. Many family members are not provided with the opportunity for treatment, how addiction and mental disorders has had effected them. I give families and spouses the opportunity to learn about themselves and what they may need to change through treatment and support programs outside of treatment.

With concrete skills, acceptance, growth and meaning can begin to heal the past. By understanding the painful narratives we sometimes unconsciously reinforce, we can start to let go of the hurt related to addiction, depression and anxiety.

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.
