As a trained therapist she gives case examples and scientific evidence of Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, the only treatment that has up to an 87% success rate with certain mood and personality disorders. On a personal level, she learned that nothing in her professional education had prepared her for “successfully living with her soul mate who just happened to have BPD.” until she found Dialectical Behavioral Therapy.

Today Debra speaks around the U.S. on the topic Bipolar Disorder and Borderline Personality Disorder with substance abuse, and the full life of recovery that you can have with these disorders. She and Mark teach, work and live the Dialectical Behavioral principles, while operating The Meehl Foundation and The Meehl House.
