Debbie Corso is a mental health blogging pioneer, courageously chronicling her journey while lighting a torch to provide hope to a severely emotionally wounded community. She has a BS from New York Institute of Technology in interdisciplinary studies in behavioral science, communications, and English, as well as a certificate in early childhood development. She is in recovery from borderline personality disorder (BPD). Through hard, consistent work with dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), she no longer meets the criteria to be considered “borderline.” Her work as an intake coordinator and case manager at a non-profit organization, working closely with children at risk for abuse and neglect, was the catalyst that propelled her to document and share her powerful journey through her blog, and hopeful and encouraging books on overcoming the oppressive symptoms of BPD. She currently cofacilitates online, worldwide DBT psychoeducational courses at www.emotionallysensitive.com. She lives in the San Francisco Bay Area.
