Hi, I'm Lisa.
My mission is to provide high quality, evidence-based tools to meet the unique needs of individuals and families living with or loving someone with borderline personality disorder or high emotional sensitivity who want to create a life worth living. I also help empower coaches and therapists who want to help their clients do the same.
Nice to meet you...
I’m Lisa Bond, a DBT skills coach and master at matching clients with the best providers in my referral network.
I’ve been a daughter, niece, wife, second-wife, mother, mother-in-law, grandmother, caregiver, friend, mentor, nurse, teacher, and now coach. I have led large volunteer organizations within school and church settings, and developed and run intensive out-patient and partial hospital mental health programs. I created and continue to run a private coaching practice that thrives.
But I’ve also been afraid, hopeless, bullied, shamed, used, criticized, excluded, abused, and taken advantage of. I have experienced depression, suicidal thoughts, anxiety, and anorexia. I’ve made mistakes, experienced profound regret, grief, shame, loneliness, body image concerns, ageism, emotional abuse, invalidation, and exclusion.
What I do...
My life’s work is to create accessible, evidence-based resources for those trying to understand the borderline personality disorder (BPD) diagnosis, make sense of the associated behavior patterns, and learn to regulate emotions to improve relationships and quality of life.
