Often clients with borderline personality disorder feel intense emotions which can be difficult to understand. Chris has worked with many clients with borderline personality disorder and helps provide coping skills to understand the issues. Often clients with BPD can feel intense rage or abandonment where there emotions are difficult to process. Individuals can be valid for their feelings and perceptions but it is important to communicate them in a calm way.

Receiving a diagnosis of Borderline Personality Disorder can be a frightening and confusing experience. If you have received this diagnosis please "give yourself a break". Healing and growth are possible, and the fact that you are reading this blurb suggests that you have all you need to begin a process of recovery. Often people who have received this diagnosis experienced a great deal of trauma, and neglect in their childhood. The patterns of thought and behavior you developed were likely necessary for your survival into adulthood. Unfortunately, these same skills may now be leaving you feeling isolated, alienated and alone. I believe that first a foremost it is important for us to develop a therapeutic relationship based on honesty and compassion. Additionally, I am informed by Schema Therapy, Internal Family Systems and Dialectic Behavior Therapy.
