I provide individual, couple, and family therapy for those in want and need. I am trained in many specialized treatments including, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Gottman Family Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Acceptance Therapy, Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, (EMDR). Sometimes my training assists you in making progress towards your goals, sometimes not; it can be something else. I bring my best self into each session, realizing that the session could be all we may have together. I believe success is defined by my clients and usually happens each time we meet. I also believe this special trusted relationship between client and therapist is enhanced by honesty, willingness, and humility. The therapeutic relationship is sometimes initially the only healthy, safe, and positive relationship clients know. I look forward to meeting you!

Bernard is a good listener and helps me to better understand the things I need to do to take responsibility for my life and relationship/s. I have had six sessions so far and the time has been well invested to support my ongoing personal development to become a better version of myself. Thank you.
I was a bit nervous when Better Help said it would match us to a therapist. I would have rather seen a list and picked myself. Nonetheless, we couldn't have picked better. Bernard does a great job of honing in on the core issues. I've been pleasantly surprised at how much ground we cover in our sessions. He's straightforward, and that style works really well for us.
