Rhonda Bernstein


About Me

Hello! I'm a licensed clinical social worker in California and Massachusetts, with 28 years of experience working with couples with a variety of relationship issues including infidelity, financial stress, conflict with extended families, incompatible sexual desire, illness, loss, infertility, parenting problems, blended families, addiction, codependency, and much more. I've worked in private practice, community mental health centers, and specialty clinics. My clients come from varying ethnic, racial, socioeconomic, and religious backgrounds, as well as different sexual orientations and gender identities. The most transformative aspect of counseling is feeling safe and supported by a knowledgeable therapist who will listen empathetically and without judgment, and will help nurture and draw out your best self. My counseling approach is therefore client-centered, strengths based, and solution-focused. I work with couples to foster mutual understanding, improved communication, greater cooperation and relationship harmony.

I would be honored to hear your unique story and facilitate your happiness and success.

Written by E.L. on Nov 18, 2019 after counseling with Rhonda for 8 months on issues concerning relationship

Rhonda has been very helpful and consistent over the past few months as I worked through issues related to fear of intimacy. Her observations have shed light on aspects of myself that I took for granted, which I realize now are actually are holding me back and are in my power to change. I would gladly work with Rhonda again, and recommend her without hesitation.
