Marsha Linehan at the University of Washington. It’s not easy, and it’s expensive, because if you can get into the program at all, you must have a lot of attention: groups, your own therapist, and supervision for both the groups and the individual therapist; and you have to be able to put in some serious time, because the fix is simply not accomplished quickly. But this program truly helps. And nothing else has ever done so very consistently. Good luck.
