About Me

As a Christion, my relationship with God has always been very personal for me. I believe that He is with me everyday and in all aspects of my life. My faith in him has helped me in the most traumatic situations, even when I honestly thought there was just no way out. This has happened whether those situations were big or small. But He took care of me every time, and that is why I believe He will take care of you. I believe that spirituality and practicing the Christian faith in our everyday lives is the most powerful motivator for anyone to turn their life around and follow a path to happiness . It is through this faith that we find our strength to gain peace and understanding. My counseling philosophy is that we have to look inside of ourselves for the answers because that is where God gives us guidance, wisdom, and strength. Your belief in God can help you with your anxieties, fears, and doubts because you will know that this is not what He wants for you in your life. I believe that with that faith we can always work together to face our challenges and find the life He wants for all of us and learn to live it in a meaningful way.

Bernice is a great counselor!!! I have been working with her for only a few weeks and truly feel the positive difference in my life. During the first week I signed up, I was in a lot of distress--Bernice sensed that and responded to my messages so quickly. Her words were kind and gentle but still pushed me to reflect deeply on the situation and draw my own conclusions about how I wanted to move forward. Bernice is always considerate to ask whether I am ready to go through exercises and asks for feedback on whether or not they worked for me. In general, conversations with Bernice are empowering and conversations flow so easily. I would highly recommend her. Thanks, Bernice!

I am so grateful for Bernice! She has been so encouraging and understanding. I had so much on my mind that caused a lot of anxiety and made me depressed. Bernice walked me through each of the issues I was dealing with and helped me to shift my focus and gain a new perspective; putting my faith in God that He has a bright future ahead for me. I feel blessed by this program in my life!
