Personality Disorders

What are personality disorders?

A personality disorder is a mental health condition characterized by enduring patterns of thoughts, behaviors, and emotions that significantly deviate from societal expectations and can lead to distress or impairment in various life areas. These patterns tend to be stable over time and may cause difficulties in relationships, work, and daily life. 

How can my therapist hep me understand and manage my personality disorder?

As a therapist, my role is to help you understand the specific personality disorder you may be dealing with and how it affects your life. Together, we’ll explore the roots of these patterns, often stemming from early life experiences. Once we identify these patterns, we’ll work on developing coping strategies, emotional regulation techniques, and effective communication skills to manage the symptoms and their impact on your life. This may include dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) or cognitive-behavioral approaches to foster healthier behaviors and thought patterns. The goal is to empower you to lead a more fulfilling life, improve your relationships, and develop a greater sense of self-awareness and self-control.
