Is there a therapist who has extensive experience with BPD. My wife has agreed to go to counseling for her depression/addiction but I believe based on reading (8 of 9 traits) the issue to be deeper. Also, in reading I understand that many counselors do not have experience so want to make sure I am finding someone who can really help.
Hi, it would be worth checking out the https://thriveworks.com/ website for your area and read therapist bios that mention familiarity with dialectical behavior therapy (DBT). It is the most widely backed way to treat symptoms that are characteristic of borderline. Additionally, it is worthy of note that complex PTSD (C-PTSD) can have symptoms similar to borderline, and it can make a big difference in treatment if you have someone who can help accurately screen and assess for both conditions.
