I help people with BPD, EUPD and Multiple Personality Disorder:
Borderline Personality Disorder (Multiple Personality or Emotionally Unstable Personality Disorder)
“The Intense Chaotic & Obsessive Lover”
These personality “adaptations” or self-created adjustments feel like “split personalities” or you’re experiencing extremely unstable emotions. This is due to being faced with prolonged stress, instability and high conflict in interpersonal, personal and family relationships for years. Family relationship dysfunction is common and can breed mental and physical illness. A parent or both parents were narcissistic and controlling or have suffered from a form of addictions themselves.
The easiest and most relatable way to explain these personality disorders is that you feel a lot and what you feel is very intense. It’s intense in that it’s high, it’s low and it’s dramatic. It’s nevera dull moment in being you or in your romantic relationships.

It’s nevera dull moment in being you or in your romantic relationships.You hold onto your relationships very tightly and you love very intensely. You’re afraid to be abandoned and you never want to be left alone.
You tend to intensely love or be addicted to others with addiction or substance abuse. It’s stressful, chaotic and it’s taken a toll on your physical health. All of this stress has been affecting your skin, bowels or other inflammatory ailments you’re struggling with.
Client Case 1 (substitute name):
“The Healer & The Em path with quiet BPD”
Julie claims she has quiet BPD, multiple personalities and narcissistic traits. She also believes she’s a healer and an empath. She loves her narcissistic and abusive boyfriend. He loses it and has been verbally, emotionally and physically abusive with her. But she loves him and is addicted to the intensity, the highs, lows and the abuse of the relationship. Though she know sit’s wrong, her nervous system, emotions and body are attracted to him otherwise. She is addicted and goes back to him. The abuse cycle plays out in that, there is abuse, the separation, then the return.
Julie also suffers from bowel inflammation and skin rashes. Julie doesn’t need to know what’s the right thing to do, in fact she has great advice with friends and family but she won’t tell them because they don’t and won’t understand. The countless blogs also tell her what to do but she cannot help that she is always attracted to and loves such a person.
In cases like this, addiction to an abusive person is real. If you are like Julie, you were wired through the nervous system to love someone who is abusive. You want to deeply save them.You want to deeply help them heal and have a severe level of hope that they can.
It was and is your adaptation to survive and love in this way from within your core. In these cases, healing at the nervous system level, healing attachment trauma and having awareness of how to go through these addictions via the soul and body is key. Together, we made sense of the purpose of multiple personas that are created by the self and how to bring them back together. Working with someone who understands the trajectory of how these addictions and personalities work, becoming aware and working through the emotional trauma are important to recovery and freeing yourself from addiction and the suffering that comes from loving in this toxic way.
