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 helped me when I was extremely distressed. I have since recovered from being in an urgent state, and I give a lot of credit to Stacy. She has been great at helping me navigate my feelings and listening to me.

Written by R.O. on May 02, 2021 after therapy with Stacy for 9 months on issues concerning family conflicts

I have been counseling with Stacey since 7/20 concerning family issues. Stacey with her big smile and gentle and friendly manner has helped me in my thinking and reaffirmed my thinking on how to deal with family matters. She seems to have very good insights and intuition. I look forward to talking with her every week.

It is hard to talk to someone through a computer about personal things - but somehow Stacy makes this easy. Stacy is extremely adept at understanding people and making them feel comfortable.
She has been incredibly helpful.
I credit this to her gifts as a counselor. She is incredibly wise and very intelligent. I found her to be deeply empathetic and I felt a solid connection with her after the very first session.
Top tier. Very helpful. Good heart.

She’s not only sweet but is easy to talk to and will go in depth to make sure she’s understanding where you’re coming from. I genuinely enjoy opening myself up to her and letting her join me on my journey to becoming a better me .

I have really enjoyed my therapy with Stacy. She is friendly, caring and professional and naturally a really good listener but has moved beyond that to challenge me to become a better, healthier self whilst still retaining the comfortable, pleasant atmosphere that always accompanied our sessions. I found this stage of my therapy to be the most helpful.

Stacy is kind and understanding . From the lost of my dog to having covid , she is truly an advocate for all her patients and very understanding . This year has been a difficult year but Stacy is definitely one of the best counselors .

Stacy has been so generous with her time and support, helping me build skills to better communicate in my marriage and support my in-laws during a difficult life transition.

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.

Stacy is non-judgemental and makes me feel listened to and understood. The focus and sessions are guided by my therapy goals. Stacy is open and easy-going and I would recommend her to friends.
