I have Borderline Personality Disorder and I commend Ilene for being amongst the very few that find value in working with people that suffer from BPD. Thank you Ilene for being a therapist with integrity and for sharing your wisdom wholeheartedly with me. You’ve helped me to calm the storm and to weather my emotions instead of letting them overcome me.”
