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 in behavioral science, communications, and English from the New York Institute of Technology in interdisciplinary studies, as well as a certificate in early childhood development. She is a certified Emotional Confidence Life Coach, and is also in recovery from borderline personality disorder (BPD).
Through hard, consistent work using 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 nonprofit 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 worldwide DBT psychoeducational courses online at www.emotionallysensitive.com, and is author of Stronger Than BPD. Corso resides in Northern California.
