Carol R. Bernstein, LCSW, MPH

California License #: 12814 MSW,  Columbia University, New York MPH- Health Education/Administration, Columbia University, New York.

Individual, Couple and Group Psychotherapy and Behavioral Health Education programs Carol’s therapeutic approach is infused with a passion for creating and providing open and interactive dialogue, empowering adults of all ages to meet life’s problems, transitions, and tough decisions with greater confidence and awareness.  

Carol’s 30 plus years of experience includes working with individuals, couples, and groups who are struggling with stresses related to: life transitions, illness, weight management, grief, sleeplessness, as well as depression and anxiety.

 Utilizing techniques from evidence based Cognitive-Behavioral, short term problem solving therapy, and mindfulness practices,  Carol can assist you to identify challenges and unhelpful patterns, learn new ways of coping, and increase your capabilities to move out of unhealthy habits and empower you to make clear and meaningful choices and changes you desire.

 In addition to traditional therapy, Carol also offers Walk and Talk therapy for those who prefer to be active. For many individuals, talking while physically walking provides a feeling of freedom of sharing thoughts that is less constraining than an office setting.

 Carol recognizes each person can benefit from a unique blend of best practices and enjoy engaging effectively and energetically with clients to find that mix. She believes very strongly in the mind-body-heart connection, the power of supportive relationships and networks, and has consistently been able to align with a great diversity of personal styles  to offer a much needed boost, help uncover new talents and resources for moving forward, experiencing greater self-acceptance, satisfaction, and focus for what matters most to you.

Evan Dunn, ACSW

Evan Dunn is an associate clinical social worker (ASW# 97935). He graduated from Bard College with a degree in Religion and Politics and later completed his MSW at CUNY Hunter Silberman School of Social Work. 
Evan worked in animal welfare for several years on hoarding and abuse/neglect cases, but decided to pursue a degree in the mental health field to better understand the underlying issues that lead to such behaviors. During his MSW Evan undertook a year long externship at the Institute for Psychoanalytic Training and Research where he provided psychotherapy for survivors of IPV, adolescents with behavioral issues, and individuals seeking treatment for a wide array of other symptoms / dual diagnosis. His experience in both fields has set him up to be an expert listener and given him the clinical skills to adroitly develop therapeutic relationships and collaborate with his patients to foster change. 
In addition to psychotherapy, Evan is interested in writing and experimental art. Some of his own work has been featured in a 2020 psychoanalytic conference and published in a magazine focused on LBGT+ cultural issues.

Along with that, I have a good amount of trauma training due to my work with Aviva Family and Children's Services where I worked with underserved communities with open DCFS cases and probation youth. I am a millennial therapist looking to support adults that struggle with Depression, Anxiety, PTSD, family dynamic issues, parental issues, racial trauma and look to provide trauma informed care to all of my clients.
