Borderline Personality Disorder and Narcissistic Personality Disorder are common conditions that often lead to unpleasant and chaotic lives for certain individuals and their loved ones. Contemporary psychoanalytic therapy can help improve patients’ lives, often remarkably. In our experience, we have found that some who have tried dialectical behavior therapy are not helped as much as they wish. Consequently, the approach we utilize seeks to address those parts of personality and underlying struggles that often are not addressed in many treatments.
We have published books and articles on these complex disorders, and present at conferences about the origins of these conditions, how they are assessed, and on how they may be treated. Our expertise and clinical experience allow me to help patients in Novi, MI, make meaningful, lasting changes in their lives.
Many young adults find themselves struggling to become self-sufficient or take on adult responsibilities. “Failure to Launch” syndrome can manifest in several different ways, such as dropping out of college, living at home with no plans for independence, difficulty maintaining steady employment, or lacking motivation to seek career advancement.
I help young adults in Novi, MI, uncover why they might be stuck in life and whether treatment would help them thrive and live a more meaningful life. This all begins with a thorough diagnostic assessment followed by specific recommendations for treatment or other life-enhancing experiences.
