Find Borderline Personality Disorder Counseling in Boise, ID

Understanding who we are as individuals helps us make sense of our world. Having a grasp on our likes and dislikes, our desires, and our needs gives us a sense of stability and personal identity.

If you’re someone with borderline personality disorder (BPD), knowing who you are and what you want may be complicated. People with BPD often experience intense feelings of worthlessness, impulsivity, and instability. You may find yourself disassociating, fluttering around listlessly as opportunities pass you by.

BDP is a serious disorder. That’s why it’s vital that people experiencing the symptoms of BPD reach out to a trained mental health care professional who can use a combination of therapy and coping techniques to ease the intensity of their symptoms.

Our providers at Thriveworks in Boise, ID offer such services. After you meet with us, we’ll provide an assessment to determine whether or not you have BPD. From there, we’ll create a treatment plan that can help you manage your symptoms safely and effectively. Connect with us by phone or our booking widget to set up an appointment.

What Are the Symptoms of Borderline Personality Disorder?

You wouldn’t expect two people with a cold to have the exact same symptoms. While one person might have a sore throat and a runny nose, the other person might have a constant cough and the occasional body ache.

Like the common cold, mental and emotional disorders often present themselves differently in different individuals. Nevertheless, there are often commonalities between people with the same condition.

For people with BPD, symptoms can include:

  • Impulsivity and risky behaviors
  • Mood swings
  • Thoughts of self-harm or suicide
  • Paranoia and anxiety
  • Fear of being abandoned
  • Disassociation
  • Unstable relationships or inability to keep relationships
  • Aggression or anger
  • Intense emotions

Because BPD can cause your mood to swing from elation to self-doubt, it may feel difficult for you to reach out for help. But seeking the care of a licensed mental health expert can be just what you need to manage your mood and bring more stability into your life. If the symptoms of BPD resonate with you, please call us at Thriveworks in Boise, ID to set up an in-person or online appointment.

What Can I Expect During Treatment?

Treatment for BPD will be specific to your needs. To begin, your provider will give you an assessment to ensure that you meet the criteria for borderline personality disorder. After the assessment and a review of your symptoms, your psychologist, psychiatrist, or another mental health professional will put together a customized treatment plan.

Your plan may be a combination of treatment options including:

  • Transference-focused therapy: This form of therapy redirects feelings towards others so that you can focus on yourself in the present moment.
  • Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT): A form of cognitive behavioral therapy, DBT focuses on accepting past actions in order to move on to new experiences.
  • Schema-focused therapy: This type of therapy identifies the negative repeated patterns you may engage in throughout your life and works to create alternative behaviors and solutions.
  • Medications: While there’s no medication to directly treat BPD, there are medications to address some of its symptoms (such as mood swings and depression).

Your provider may use these or other types of treatment to address the symptoms of BPD. Your treatment plan will likely also include tips on how to manage your relationships with others and skills to express your emotions in a healthy way. Your provider may also suggest mindfulness techniques or calming activities such as yoga and meditation to alleviate your symptoms.

Jared Bryson – Awesome Therapist

★★★★★
I have been working with Jared for over a year now. When I first started with him, I was apprehensive about going to a new therapist. I was with one before and did not have much success. After my first session, I knew he was the right fit for me. My spouse had already been going for a while, so we were able to compare experiences. One thing we noticed was how Jared adapted his therapy style to each of us. We then started couples therapy with him. He has been a God-send for us in helping us work through our issues. We were able to uncover things about us that made us stronger as a team. I cannot recommend Jared enough. He is truly amazing and a master of his craft.

Jared Bryson, LMFT

★★★★★
I met Jared @ an Out-Patient program back in 2012. I was going going threw so much at work & home and was in much need of guidance! While I HATED being there, I knew something needed to change. Somehow through out the years, I had lost my Voice. I no longer could balance what we call LIFE. Being a Wife, Step-mom, Business Woman, the Pilar to my immediate family & finally having my own child, took a toll on me...I could no longer function! While in this program, Jared asked my permission if he could be my Voice. Confused, I said yes. Then he said I could take it back when I was ready. Again confused, I replied...Okay. Each day with him, I grew stronger & stronger. I looked forward to being in the Program. By the end,I knew what he meant, I had my VOICE back! Jared helped me find myself again! Jared is NOT your typical therapist. He does not sit there with a pen + paper asking the obvious questions! He is a real down to earth person who genuinely cares about you & wants you to succeed. I was so HAPPY to find out he ventured out on his own. He has been my LIFE COACH since leaving the program & now my 13 yr old gets the PRIVILEGE to benefit from his wisdom as well! I will follow him (Virtually) where ever he goes!
