Borderline Personality (BPD)
You are a hard working person, you go to work everyday, you take care of your responsibilities and everyone thinks you have it all together but the truth is, you are struggling and often times you're sad. No one knows that the smile on your face and the laughter in your voice is a mask. You are afraid to show how you feel, so you hide it. Sometimes things are going great and you never want it to end, and other times it seems like nothing is going well. You feel like you are on an emotional roller coaster. Sometimes you say things and react to circumstances in a way you feel regret afterwards and, it has cost you relationships.
You want to feel more in control of your life, of your thoughts and your feelings. You want to be able to give yourself permission to do what's best for you and not feel guilty about it. You want to be able to take "your mask" off and just breathe. I can help you do all of that.
I make therapy convenient and easy to fit into your busy life. People that work with me appreciate my straightforward and down-to-earth approach. Check out my website and schedule your first appointment with me today!
Support That Makes a Difference
We have the know-how you need.
INDIVIDUAL THERAPY SESSION
Life throws many surprises at us, and while we cannot predict the outcome of any situation, we can take control of how we respond to certain situations. With therapy sessions, you’ll learn about acceptance and how to exert your power of choice over whatever life may throw at you.
Dialectical Behavior Therapy Skills

Mindfulness skills will teach you how to consciously focus the mind in the present moment without judgment and without attachment to the moment. Distress Tolerance skills will give you the tools to endure a stressful situation without making it worse. Emotion Regulation skills will teach you the ability to control or influence which emotions you have, when you have them and, how you express and experience them. Interpersonal Effectiveness skills will teach how to communicate effectively and cope with conflict while maintaining relationships and your self-respect.
