Borderline Personality Disorder
Borderline Personality Disorder is a mental health condition characterized by difficulties regulating emotion. These difficulties can lead to impulsivity, poor self-image, complicated relationships, and intense emotional responses to frustrations and triggering events. Struggling with self-regulation can often lead one to cause self-harm like cutting. People with BPD can be very impulsive and are typically more sensitive than most people to environmental circumstances. The perception of impending separation or rejection can lead to profound changes in self-image, affect, behavior and cognition. Treatment of borderline personality disorder typically involves long-term psychotherapy with an experienced therapist.

I have worked at length with women who suffer from Borderline Personality Disorder, both in residential treatment settings and in my private practice. I am trained in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), which is the only empirically supported treatment for BPD.
I have worked with individuals with Borderline Personality Disorder to help them relate to themselves and others in more effective ways and to live a more peaceful life.
