I have been working with youth for 15 years and have experience with PTSD, Borderline Personality Disorder, Dissociative Disorders, substance use, family issues, grief and loss, suicide and self-harm, self-esteem and self-identity.
Navigating life and the emotional challenges that come with it is difficult and often confusing as a young person. It can be overwhelming to balance the responsibilities of school, work, and everyday life all while figuring out who you are and also dealing with relationships with friends and family! Feeling alone and lost during this huge life transition is completely normal, and the good news is, there really is hope. I absolutely love working with young people and strive to offer them an authentic relationship and place of hope from which to work on goals, identity, safe and adaptive coping skills, healing, and self-discovery.

We’ve all experienced varying degrees of pain or trauma in our lives. Sometimes that pain, sadness or fear becomes debilitating and we find it difficult to function. You may know what is causing your distress (loss of job, end of a relationship, family problems) or you might have no idea why you’re struggling. Either way you may be feeling overwhelmed, discouraged, anxious, worried, angry or even confused. Things that have helped you in the past may no longer be working. That’s a good sign that you need some new coping skills and improved insight.

We all deserve a space where we can feel free to be open, to show our vulnerabilities, and to work through the barriers that prevent us from feeling whole. I utilize my counseling skills and various modalities to create a safe environment for those suffering from trauma, depression, anxiety, stress, grief, and the challenges of life transitions. I help those with whom I work identify any habits, such as addictions to drugs, food, self-harm, or white noise, which may be interfering with their efforts to overcome suffering.

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.
