For people with a borderline personality structure, emotions can feel overwhelming and confusing and relationships intense and frustrating. making it hard to find relief. This experience can be compounded by stigma experienced from the label of "borderline personality disorder" and ineffectual treatments that fail to address the issues causing those distressing symptoms in the first place. I approach the treatment of borderline personality from a psychodynamic perspective. I incorporate the best evidence available for improving emotion regulation and relationship stability and satisfaction. We work together to develop a trusting working relationship that feels safe enough to explore the psychological causes of your symptoms. As you do the hard work of inner exploration with me, you’ll discover new ways to express your feelings and get your needs met, leading to a more manageable life.

Helping clients and families identify what they can change and what they can’t change is #goals in DBT. In therapy, we help loved ones minimize their contributions to the problems (by invalidating) while also helping coach them in how to be real, transparent, and how to set their own limits. Learning how and when to validate is a huge part of the process.

If you have received a diagnosis of BPD, then you know that mitigating your varying moods is critical to leading a full and happy life. I am committed to working with my patients so that they can develop a complete understanding of their own patterns and behaviors so that they can learn to anticipate when a shift might be coming, and what they can do to make that shift a little softer. This is a condition that also bears a lot of stigma, and I hope to create a judgement-free space where my patient feels emboldened to express themselves openly and honestly.
