Bernell is a wonderful therapist. After 2 failed attempts at finding a therapist, I found this amazingly gifted woman! She has listened intently to my fears, concerns, and goals. She has offered me some tools and strategies to begin processing my environment and my responsive behaviors. What I love most about her approach to helping me is that she is very supportive of me as I am learning to to show myself compassion for where/when I have fallen short of my goals or expectations, but she also challenges me to adopt new and healthy ways to hold myself accountable. I love it here! So grateful to have found her!!

Everyone is handling things in their own way...
From the first moment, just... a feeling, I knew right away Bernell got me in what I had to say.
A very wise woman, a good listener, entangler of thoughts, -a beautiful, deep mind. I couldn’t hope for a better therapist and client match.
I am very grateful for that.

I've had such a good experience with Bernell as my therapist. She's professional, kind, enthusiastic, and very conscientious about my situation and its challenges. I always receive timely and helpful replies to my messages, and feel much better after our sessions. I cannot recommend her enough.
