Fulfilling our potential is a lifelong journey of becoming more at peace with ourselves, deepening the intimacy in our relationships, being more authentically human, and feeling more alive each day. Along the way, certain challenges arise to cause us distress or confusion. Such moments can make us feel held back, afraid, or unsure of where to go from here. But these moments can also be the points of growth and healing from which we renew ourselves in ways we did not think possible.
It is a great privilege helping men and women in their search to improve their relationship with themselves and others, to lessen the burden of emotional pain, to experience freedom from addictions, or to embark on new life challenges - to find the hope and courage needed to take those important next steps. My clients have consistently taught me that, despite various pains and hurts we may encounter, the human power of resilience and love is much stronger.
My counseling approach is primarily one of empowerment: allowing your personal strengths to be nurtured and developed, while lessening or managing psychological hindrances that may be damaging your quality of life. I am especially mindful of the whole person - your physical, emotional, social, and spiritual well-being. In this way, I utilize a variety of techniques depending on your particular needs, strengths, and goals. These techniques include behavioral and cognitive skills to more in-depth existential or transpersonal therapy approaches. I have specialized training in mindfulness meditation, treating both substance-based and behavioral addictions, recovery from childhood and adult trauma experiences, sexual identity struggles, anxiety and depressive disorders, bereavement, and other life transitions.

Adam is one of the best therapists i've come across. Period. Helped me with managing my anxiety and past, healing my past, and preparing for my future. I'm so glad i got to meet him. Completely changed my life.
Adam has been extremely helpful to me during a very difficult time of my life. He has been giving me great advice and support.
He’s pretty supportive and knowledgeable, very responsible and talk with me on time even we are in different time zones and probably that’s hard for him to schedule. Selfishly, sometimes, I even don’t want to share my review of him with people because he’s so good so I was worried he’ll be too busy to talk with me if I spread his name around. But he’s really a nice person for you to help with your depression/anxiety, he’ll help you, at least he really helped me. I felt better every time after I talked with him. I hope you can feel better too.
Adam is calming and insightful. He listens and is genuinely interested in helping with my issues without being judgmental. He has given me some valuable tools to take control over my anxiety.
Adam is a patient, respectful person. It's a pleasure to talk to Adam.
Adam Bernstein was very supportive through dealing with my issue. He took time to ask the important questions before talking about solutions. He was very respectful and I never felt judged or ashamed.
Adam is good to talk to. He always responds to me and seems eager to help out. Adam also seems to be genuinely concerned with helping people the best that he can.
I am very impressed by the helpfulness of Adam Bernstein. He is happy to read my responses and gives helpful insights. He is helping me to navigate my way with progress through a myriad of life challenges. I appreciate and value his help.
Adam is a man who listens and respects the things you say. I immediately felt comfortable at the first time. He responds quickly and makes me think different and more positive. I've made a lot of progression ever since!
