Borderline Personality Disorder

Is your behavior, or the behavior of someone close to you, threatening your well-being or the well-being of your family or relationship?


Have you looked at that behavior and come up with no rational reasons for what is going on? The answer may be Borderline Personality Disorder, also commonly known as BPD.

Below are traits attributed to BPD. If five or more of these nine criteria sound familiar, you may now know what you’re dealing with.  BPD can be successfully treated with Dialectical or Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.  I have extensive training and experience in dealing with this disorder, helping people to recover and lead healthy and fulfilling lives.
