Wesley has always struggled with building relationships in his life. He attaches to people quickly, but his emotional highs and lows push others away. Wesley lives with severe mood swings, anger, and paranoia. As he gets older, he’s starting to wonder if he’ll ever be able to control his thoughts and moods –– so he decides to get in touch with a therapist.

Have you ever felt like Wesley? Borderline personality disorder (BPD) is a mental illness marked by distorted self-image, mood swings, and an intense fear of abandonment. People with BPD often act impulsively and engage in risky behaviors. The symptoms of BPD can prevent people from excelling at work, in school, or in personal relationships.

Borderline personality disorder can go undiagnosed and untreated for years –– but we want you to know that support is available. Therapists, counselors, and psychiatrists have the skills and training to diagnose BPD and treat its symptoms.

Do you want to reduce your BPD symptoms and live a happier, healthier life? Consider calling our office at Thriveworks Counseling in Maitland, FL, today.

Most Common Borderline Personality Disorder Symptoms

BPD can be diagnosed fairly early –– sometimes as early as 12 years of age in some people. However, most diagnoses are made in late adolescence or early adulthood. Borderline personality disorder impacts your self-image, how you relate to others, and how you act. These symptoms can cause a great deal of stress, but BPD is treatable.

Some of the most common BPD symptoms include:

  • Mood swings lasting from a few hours to a few days
  • Changing self-identity or self-image
  • Feeling empty inside
  • Fear of real or imagined abandonment
  • “Black or white” style thinking
  • Impulsivity or risk-taking behavior
  • Intense emotions

Mental health professionals usually diagnose BPD by using psychological evaluations, questionnaires, and interviews. Your medical and mental health history can be valuable, as well as a discussion of the symptoms you’ve been experiencing. Once a diagnosis is made, most people with BPD will benefit from some form of talk therapy.

Are you struggling with symptoms of BPD? We want you to know that support is available. Working with a mental health professional can reduce the symptoms of BPD and help you live a happier, healthier life. Call our office at Thriveworks Counseling in Maitland, FL, to schedule your first appointment.

What To Expect From Borderline Personality Disorder Treatment

The medical community doesn’t agree on a single cause of BPD. Instead, most scientists think that multiple risk factors can impact a person’s chance to develop BPD–– genetics, environmental factors, trauma, and abuse are all things in a person’s life that can contribute to the disorder.

Typically, borderline personality disorder is treated through psychotherapy. This type of treatment can help you learn valuable skills that will help you manage your condition.

There are a few types of psychotherapy that are frequently used to treat BPD:

  • Transference-focused therapy (TFT): This type of psychotherapy helps people with BPT improve their self-image and relationships with others by projecting emotions onto the budding relationship between provider and client. This allows the provider to help aclient understand their thoughts and emotional state.
  • Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT): This type of therapy can help people manage emotional distress. It focuses on teaching four key skills: mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotional regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness. Learning these skills can help people with BPT manage their thoughts, emotions, and behaviors.

Talk therapy is the most commonly used treatment for BPD, but medications can be a part of some treatment plans. There isn’t a medication that treats BPD directly, but some medications can help treat anxiety and depression –– disorders that frequently occur alongside BPD. Managing these concurrent disorders can help you reduce the symptoms of BPD more easily.

Do you want to work with a mental health professional to help control your BPD? Call our office today at Thriveworks Counseling in Maitland, FL.

My online therapy is with my therapy provider Gabriel Oliver. Gabriel is a total gentlemen who allows me to feel comfortable to open up and express my issues freely. He is an excellent listener who pays close attention to the details I express.Not only is he empathetic and attentive to my feelings but he helps me feel like I am in a judgement free zone. Since he is such a kind and compassionate professional he has empowered me with much more strength to begin to make progress in my journey to heal from the stresses that have overwhelmed me. He asks really thought provoking questions & I was recently encouraged to do some soul searching which has enabled me to decide to make some positive changes in my situation after facing the realization that with his expertise he will assist me to move forward from a difficult time in my life in a profound way! I feel like i will finally have a chance to focus on making a brighter future and grow from the challenges I am still currently facing. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I have known Saundra for more than 40 years and have found her to remain constant, honest, caring and so much more. As a Professional, she would be such an asset as she is brilliant, intelligent and has an abnormal photogenic memory! Her many good traits combined would make an ideal counselor, in my opinion!
