Stacy Bernstein

(LCSW)

About Me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with experience working with people of all ages and backgrounds in a variety of contexts and settings.

I enjoy working with clients to overcome struggles with depression, stress and anxiety, among many other life challenges, by exploring and processing thoughts, feelings and behaviors to promote change and enhance your quality of life.

I have a special interest in working with adults, especially older adults and their families, navigating major life transitions. This involves changes that come with aging, which can include dementia, caregiving, end-of-life issues, grief, loss and bereavement.

My vision is to help my clients face difficult times, cope, and discover new possibilities and perspectives in life.

Knowing you are the expert of your life, I use a person-centered approach and collaborate with you, matching various therapeutic modalities to what will work best for you. I provide a comfortable, empathic and non-judgemental atmosphere in supporting you in accomplishing your goals.

I look forward to working with you!

Stacy for me!!!! A lot!!!
When I started thinking that I need some counselling session, I was very worried about how I can share and make that happens. Stacy is that person who knew how to deal with all those for me. I had few months session with her. I found her very competent, knowledgeable, caring, responsible, I guess not that she applies same common formula to everyone, she worked so closely with me and very specific. I found all, she told me to do, were very easy, I am sure because the way she made it fo me. I have all those answers for myself what I had before I started session with her. I was able to improve myself so much that I don’t need the session now. But definitely I would recommend Stacy Bernstein to my friends and family.

Stacy saved my life. In more ways than one, I found empathy, understanding and consideration at a really tough time. I've done this with several mental health professionals and none were as nearly as helpful or qualified as stacy was. Relatable, understanding and extremely observant. I would literally reccommend Stacy to every single person in my life right now, as I feel like they all could use her help.

I have really enjoyed the 2 sessions that I have had with Stacy. Besides being really nice, friendly, and an amazing listener, she has asked some really fundamental questions that have enabled me to rethink how I process challenges and also given me some practical steps that I think will be really useful.

This modern method of online therapy has already exceeded my wildest expectations!
