About

Biography
Hi, I've been in practice for 36 years, I work best with adults. My areas of interest are individual and couple therapy. Specific areas are stress disorders, sexual problems, substance abuse , relationship problems, depression and anxiety disorders and coaching. I look at where you are emotionally, nutritionally, your physical fitness level and medical status.I do an evaluation and design a treatment plan to reach your goals. My approach is seeing you as a whole person, we are in this together, I give very clear feedback and am involved . I use myself as a tuning fork, this is not a protocol but tailored to you and what will help. I've been in full time practice in Walnut Creek for 36 years, this has given me a unique perspective on people and the human condition. I am also old enough to have a breadth of real world experience which I bring to my practice.

I have been a lawyer for 43 years.
Due to a recent family trauma, I had occasion to seek my own psychological counseling and began seeing Dr. Bernstein.
I found his knowledge, professionalism and demeanor to be outstanding.
His office is clean, efficient and organized.
His most salient attribute is that he is direct and honest with his clients, while at the same time he is very caring about them.
In all of my years of dealing with professionals in this field, I would rate Dr. Bernstein at the very top of the list.

Dr. Bernstein was extremely helpful in getting me through some relationship issues. His perceptiveness about me and the people in my life who were causing me stress allowed me to develop a new way of looking at my relationships and allowed me to decide whether or not to engage. This took a lot of the stress out of the relationships. His kind demeanor and sense of humor made dealing with these issues easier than I thought it would be. Thank you Dr. Bernstein.

I saw the doctor four times and did not feel that I was given a plan / road map / milestones for success.
The lack of definition was disconcerting
I prefer a more formal approach with meassurable results
Also, when I requested a 10 min phone call between appointments, I was told the charge would be $50. The policy states "extended calls will be billed at normal rates" - 10 minutes is not extended

Overall

My first experience with a different psychologist was not a good one so honestly I wasnt expecting much. However Dr. Bernstein saved my life. Twice. I was deeply depressed - going through a divorce & many unresolved childhood issues. He helped me to work through my issues & depression so I could get on with my life. Unfortunately I got into a violent relationship. Even though I couldnt afford to see him Dr. Bernstein had me come to his office & he got me the help I needed to get away from the abuse & get my life back. I would recommend his services to anyone. I truly believe that if it were not for his help I would have either committed suicide or been killed by my now ex-boyfriend. He helped me to get my self esteem back & to deal with my issues & get my life on track. I'm eternally greatful. So if you are reading this Dr. Bernstein, although its not nearly enough I THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART! Kathy C.

Skeptical

Even with a sick parent, work stress, and a troubled marriage, I was reluctant to reach out for assistance. After months of sleepless nights, and self medication I found that sadness and anxiety were major parts of my life. I reached out to Dr. Bernstein who equipped me to better cope with life's challenges. Thank you very much doctor!
