10 Years Experience
Marriage and Family Therapist, LMFT
I take an Ambivalent Attachment perspective, meaning that my view of BPD is that is a more severe expression of an Ambivalent Attachment style. In sessions, I will maintain a safe and predictable environment, supporting a space for each of us to be in charge of our own stories and emotional states. I'll be gentle in nonverbal and verbal communication, and, will model personal boundaries between and in sessions. We may incorporate EMDR or parts work into a primarily DARE approach of being with the felt-sense of connection, highlighting what feels safe and unsafe, trusting and mistrusting, predicable and chaotic. From a place of safe connection, we'll revisit the wounded parts from your past with nurturing openness and adaptability, while maintaining integrity and authenticity of your Core Self.
