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.
