My Approach to Helping

My approach to helping is centered around providing support and tools to those who may feel overwhelmed, burnt out, out of control or disconnected from themselves. Specializing in addressing issues such as anxiety, chronic stress, burnout, and emotional dysregulation, I help my clients reclaim balance and joy. I blend scienced-backed techniques with warmth, compassion, and humor.

I am down to earth, practical and open minded. Creating a shame-reducing and empowering space is a priority in my practice. I am neurodiversity affirming and respect and honor all genders, orientations, faiths, and lived experiences.

I offer a free initial phone call to make sure we're a good fit. You can also visit my website BernardCounseling.com to learn more about what to expect. All of my sessions are done on a secure video platform and I offer online scheduling. If you’re ready to get the help you need call me at 941-313-7275.
