In the simplest terms, a Personality Disorder is a way of thinking, feeling, or behaving that deviates from a social norm, and can possibly cause issues with functioning, interacting with others, and distress in certain situations. Personality Disorders can affect the way you think about yourself, how you relate to others, inability to control emotions or behaviour.
Not every personality trait is “clinical”, or should be made clinical. Sometimes, our personality traits simply clash with different or opposing personality traits in others. Using the most current and up-to-date personality testing such as the Big Five, MMPI, Strengths Based Testing, Projective Testing and other personality inventories, we can help you figure out who you are as a person! And how to use or adjust those traits to improve your relationships, across all areas of life.

Personality traits are theorized to develop around age 6 or 7. By that age, how we see the world, our expectations, and how we navigate life.
Sadly, outdated websites and literature suggest that people affected by a personality disorder can’t change. But, that’s simply not the case.
