I agree with the other 5-star reviews on this website. Bernie is an extremely nice and caring person, and a great therapist for sure. However, what no one seemed to mention is that he can be very tough and will tell you things you don’t want to hear. There have been times when I left his office very upset and angry with him. One time I was so mad I stopped seeing him and tried another therapist. After some sessions with the other therapist I realized how good Bernie was. Eventually I went back to Bernie and worked with him for a long time. He helped me overcome an addiction and other life problems. I consider him my therapist and friend. I still think of him nearly every day and I use the mental exercises he taught me all the time. I highly recommend him to anyone who wants to change their lives for the better.

Time and time again, Bernie is always there for me. Never - not once - has he let me down. Shows me compassion and understanding when I am down. Gives me great feedback and insight when I feel lost. Helps me solve problems and find solutions with I feel stuck. Encourages and inspires me when I want to give up or chicken out of doing something that I am afraid but that is good for me. I am so grateful that Bernie is my therapist!

Bernie’s compassion and willingness to go above and beyond is what impressed me the most about him. I took my 17-year-old son to see him after he was diagnosed with a serious medical condition and became depressed. At one point my son was hospitalized for several days. Emotionally he was really struggling to deal with his circumstances. Without me asking him, Bernie visited my son on two occasions. He helped him greatly in dealing with the trauma of his diagnosis and treatment. Bernie helped all of us get through a very dark time. You are not going to find a better therapist for yourself or your child!

I went to see Bernie after years of struggling with depression. I saw a couple of different therapists before working with him. All I can say is that he is a master at what he does. He made me feel understood and accepted, and he pushed and motivated me to work on improving my life. I use what he taught me nearly every day of my life.

When I think of Bernie I smile! He helped me overcome my anxiety and to live my best life. I learned probably around 15 coping strategies from him. I use many of them almost every day. More importantly, he always made me feel understood and cared about. There is nothing that I couldn't talk to him about. He is the best!

Bernie hepled my young adult son through some very dark times. In fact I believe he saved my son's life. Bernie proved himself to be a kind, thoughtful and highly skilled therapist. Most importantly he never seemed frustated or discouraged by my son's slow progress and at times bad attitude. As far as I am concerned Bernie is the best of the best.

I have been seeing Bernie on and off for the past 15-years. Bernie has been the only therapist who has been truly able to help me overcome some serious problems in my life. He has gone "above and beyond" in helping me. I truly feel blessed to have found such an amazing therapist and I don't think I would be where I am in life if were not for his help. I highly recommend him if you want a high quality therapist who will truly go out of his way to help you in anyway he can.

I saw Bernie for my depression and anxiety. I struggled for years before I saw he. I think he can best be described as a gentle giant. He is tall and very athletic looking, but he is a great listener and always made me feel understood and cared about. Our sessions were always productive. Half the time he let me vent about my week, the other half he taught me (and helped me practice) coping strategies. I highly recommend Bernie. I think it would be tough to find a better therapist!

I am writing this review with mixed emotions.To be honest I did not like Bernie when I took my son to see him several years ago.He told me things I did not want to hear.He said that my son's treatment would be difficult and that it would take time and patience.My son really liked Bernie, but I took him to another therapist.Unfortunately, my son’s problems got much worse.At 30 my son went back to Bernie on his own.In the 2 years they have been working together my son has turned his life around.

3 years ago I was looking for a new therapist. I found Bernie online. I liked his website because he gave a lot of information about his treatment. What I experienced with Bernie was very much what he described on his website. He took the time to get to know me, explained what he thought was causing my problems and taught me how to cope. During the time I worked with Bernie I stopped partying, met my girlfriend and found a great job. I don’t think any of that would have happened without him.

I have worked with two other therapists before Bernie. He is by far the best therapist I have ever had. He took the time to get to know me. He always made me feel cared about and understood. He taught me so many great strategies for coping with my depression and anxiety. For the first time in my life I feel in control of my feelings. I really don't know where I would be without him.

I've worked with Bernie for many years and can confidently say that therapy with Bernie has had an immeasurably positive impact on my life. Bernie has helped me work through anxiety, depression, relationship issues, organizational/motivational issues related to ADHD, and general life/change adjustments, and with his guidance I've learned to apply the techniques of cognitive behavioral therapy and intervention to everyday challenges. I highly recommend working with Bernie and Strength for Change.

Bernie has guided me through a time where I didn't think I would be able to see the light at the end of the tunnel. His mindful approach has helped me deal with fear of anxiety, panic attacks and depression. His sincere and attentive approach has helped not only myself, but my son and my husband. He continues to help me when the inevitable grip of anxiety shows up. I am truly grateful he is my therapist!

I am 24 years old and have been seeing Bernie on and off since I was 18. He believed in me when no one else did. Even though talking to him never felt like being in therapy, I am amazed by how much he has taught me. I use his CBT strategies all the time and my life is no longer controlled by depression, anxiety and bad habits. I can't say enough about Bernie. He is a very special person and I can't imagine there is a better therapist out there.

I can't thank Bernie enough for what he has helped me through. I have tried other Psychologist before but was unable to see improvements in myself. Bernie has a way to see the best in people and gives them the vision to work towards an optimistic future. He has changed my life and I would recommend him to any of my closest friends or relatives in a instant.

Bernie is unarguably a master of his craft. I have been suffering from anxiety for a good portion of my life, and have been to several different therapists over the years. I clicked instantly with him and came to realize that he had the skills to guide me down a path to manage my anxiety more effectively. His caring demeanor combined with his extensive knowledge and passion gave me the strength I needed to confront my anxiety and learn how to cope better. I highly recommend working with him!

Bernie helped my son immensely. We went to 3 other therapists before Bernie. He was the only one who did a thorough evaluation. He was also the only one able to connect with my son. Thoughtful, caring and extremely knowledgeable is how I would describe him.
