Social Worker and Counsellor
Everyone has their own story, and Bernie is someone who is always ready to listen to each individual. He has devoted his career to helping people. He will listen first, and then help you to explore and reflect on your current situation and your future as you begin to move forward in your life.
Bernie is a registered Social Worker with a Master of Social Work degree (University of Calgary) and has authorization to do Psychosocial Interventions. He has recently opened his private counselling practice. Bernie has over 25 years of experience working with individuals, couples and families of all walks of life. He is passionate about working with all clients, youth through to seniors. He has facilitated many workshops for couples, blended family couples, men groups, and grief support groups. Bernie has two areas in which he specializes. The first is working with couples who are either new together, struggling following years of discontent in their relationship, or just looking for someone to help them do a reset. The second area of expertise is with individuals and families who are struggling with issues in life and are looking for someone to talk to.
Bernie will begin by listening to your story and then help you to develop a plan specific to meeting your needs. He will work with you to determine what barriers stand in your way, what strengths you have, what you want your future to look like, how you will get there, and how you will know you are there when you arrive. If you struggle with couples issues, family relationship issues, stress, anxiety, depression, work-related issues, peer issues, grief and loss, coping, anger, life balance, self-esteem, identity issues, transition issues, or any other concerns, and you would like to have someone to talk to about your situation, Bernie would be honoured and happy to work with you. Bernie is committed to providing a safe, non-judgemental, and hopeful environment for you to share your story, and to begin working towards helping you to achieve your goals. You will then be ready and able to start your new journey down a path of greater hope and a better state of well-being.
