About Me

Louis Bernstein, MFT

I have a true passion for helping my clients create and nurture a Loving and Fulfilling relationship. 

If there has been an upset in your relationship, it will be my goal to assist you, with guidance and compassion, in ways to mend, rebuild and strengthen the supportive and loving relationship that you desire.

I have a Masters Degree in Counseling Psychology from John F. Kennedy University, with a specialty in Transpersonal Psychology.  Transpersonal Psychology is founded in the philosophy and practice of treating others with unconditional Acceptance, Compassion and Regard.  I assist my clients in creating their healthy intimate relationship based upon those same principles. I counsel from the "Client-Centered" approach, in which I offer you an attitude of non-judgment, respect, appreciation and care so that you may feel completely safe, seen, heard, and understood.

Recognizing that each Couple and Individual is unique, I will carefully choose and select from the various trainings and resources I have available to best suit your particular needs, wishes and goals.  Our work together would be collaborative, in which I am guided by your needs and I invite regular feedback from my clients to insure that I am meeting those needs as best as I am able.

I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in California and in New Mexico. For your information, a more detailed description of my various professional trainings and techniques can be found on the "Therapy Solutions” page, or you can give me a call at 925-708-0997.
