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.

Rachel White,IMFT

After graduating with her bachelors in Psychology, Rachel began attending Phillips Graduate Institute obtaining her Masters in Clinical Psychology with an emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy. This provided the foundation for her career as a Psychotherapist and inspired her interest of working with the family system as a whole to promote lasting changes within the unit.

During her internship, Rachel began specializing in Child Development becoming a Family Consultant and quickly promoted to a Supervisor, utilizing social-emotional based developmental services for children with special needs using a DIR/Naturalistic ABA therapy. These services are all based on the neurobiological research in development, self regulation, and communication which she also incorporates into her psychotherapy practice.

Rachel has dedicated her life and research in helping others who find themselves stuck, unable to move forward, or create change often due to the lingering effects of childhood trauma and adversities, or traumatic life experiences.Negative or traumatic experiences and excessive stress can have a serious impact on your overall well-being. If you are stuck or struggling to create the life you hoped for, let's work through it together. You don't have to do this alone.
