Thank you for visiting my profile, I am so glad you found me here! I specialize in treating Borderline Personality Disorder, Complex PTSD and Dissociative Disorders. My clients are typically stigmatized, misdiagnosed, and deeply misunderstood as a mental health population. They struggle with suicidal thoughts, emotional pain and dissociation. Their symptoms reflect unmet developmental needs in childhood or from severe trauma. They are acutely sensitive, intelligent and often high-functioning individuals who desperately want to cope better with life.

I work with individuals who struggle with intense emotional responses, impulsivity, harmful behaviors, relationship issues, and trauma.I also work with individuals who identify as Adult Children of Emotionally Immature/ Narcissistic Parents and are in recovery from emotional abuse. You may feel like you're on an emotional rollercoaster and find it difficult to cope with what you feel others see as “normal” life struggles. You may also find it difficult to set boundaries, feel anxious/overwhelmed with certain relationships and struggle with guilt, shame and invalidation. If this sounds like you, I'd love to help.

If you or your family are struggling with issues like substance abuse, addiction, eating disorders, or relationship conflicts (infidelity, communication problems, etc.), therapy can be a great way to deal with those struggles. Most people struggle without support for longer than is helpful. People have the innate skills to cope and bounce back from their struggles. My goal as a therapist is to provide a non-judgmental space for you to identify and grow the tools to work on those struggles.

So often we suffer traumas and emotional struggles, feeling like no one will understand or not knowing where to turn. This is one of the reasons I chose to become a counselor. My role in my client's lives is to provide a different outlook and to evaluate possible solutions. I provide my clients with a safe and supportive environment, free of judgement or criticism, where meeting their goals is top priority. I help my clients recognize their choices, as well as the means to get there, and together we will work towards achieving those desired goals.

I am full and not accepting new clients at this time (12.1.22); please check back later for possible openings. Are you feeling like you aren't yourself lately? Maybe you're wondering why everything seems like so much effort or you don't find joy like you use to. Or perhaps anxiety is keeping you from living the life you want. Maybe life has thrown you one too many curve balls and you're feeling overwhelmed and hopeless. You may feel alone in your experience. Self-doubt, sadness, anxiety are part of the human experience. Our reactions to those thoughts and feelings; however, can lead to overwhelming distress.

I believe that validation is key to creating a foundation from which to begin recovering from mental health challenges. If you do not feel validated, you will continue to suffer, often times in silence. I also believe in being my true authentic self with my clients in hopes that this will inspire them to do the same. The important thing for me is that I can meet you where you are and empower you to start making the changes you would like to see. “The good life is a process, not a state of being. It is a direction not a destination.” – Carl Rogers, On Becoming a Person

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.
