I agree with fw... it's important to have someone who is compassionate. IMHO, coldness doesn't fit with therapy. You need to trust the person and feel like they care about you (even if professionally), no matter what type of therapy you are doing, and how can you trust someone if they are the "ice queen"? (love your terminology, BTW)

I haven't tried DBT myself. Traditional psychoanalytical therapy seems to be working so far. Although it has DBT-esque elements to it... I often bring in difficult situations which I have encountered (see above post) and we discuss what led up to it, what was going through my head, how I got to the state I did, and how I could react differently the next time. But the psychoanalytical part is equally important, I think. BPD is largely a part of environment of origin, and can be overcome (eventually). At least that's what I've been told... hard to believe sometimes. So examining what led you to develop BPD is helpful b/c it helps to come to terms with the past and "move on", so to speak. Does that make sense? I have a hard time explaining concepts sometimes.

Maybe you could find a T who combines methodologies?
