You may be here because how you usually cope is not working right now. Sometimes we can feel 'stuck' or a 'burden' to those around us. I have a passion for working with individuals, youth, and families who are currently or have previously experienced; interpersonal conflict, anxiety, depression, trauma or complex trauma, grief, and issues with coping in daily life. Every client is different and I strive to work collaboratively with you to find a comfortable rhythm that best suits you. I focus on building a strong and trusting relationship together and knowing what you are getting into will help mediate those fears. I have my Master’s in Counselling Psychology and am a member of the College of Registered Psychotherapists. I have done post-graduate certifications in; Addictions and Mental Health, Clinical Traumatology, and therapeutic modalities (including Motivational Interviewing, DBT, CBT, Structural Family Therapy, EFT, and IFS). I am a trauma focused therapist. I come at this work from years as a peer support facilitator. I've sat with individuals, families, and groups during exceptionally difficult periods in their lives. What I know how to do is to sit with what is hard, to listen empathetically, to build a space of safety and non-judgement, and create an authentic dialogue with you as we get to know one another.

Alysha Bernstein Practice Description
The first meeting is an opportunity for you and me to discuss what is presenting a challenge in your life and for you to experience what it is like to work with me. This session can be anxiety-provoking and so we will start with some housekeeping and then focus on what brings you to this space before setting any goals. It is important for me to know you and what your needs are. We will then book a follow-up appointment, or a series of appointments, if that is your preference. After the first session, I will develop a personalized plan for your treatment that fits your needs. For example, some interventions work better than others depending on the person and their issue(s). The duration of counselling is determined through ongoing discussion and review between therapist and client. In some cases, a single session is all that is required, and in others, longer-term therapy is more effective. Individual sessions run 60 minutes.
