Dr. Bernous’ theoretical approach in therapy is psychodynamic, which involves the various forces of the mind that are in motion. This approach considers different psychological factors as having effects on an individual’s life. These factors could be known or unknown to us.
The goal of psychodynamic therapy is to make us aware of unknown thoughts, feelings, and desires. This way, we can develop new ways of thinking about ourselves and new ways of relating to others, while learning to be more flexible in dealing with our problems. This method of therapy allows for a new aspect of our personality to grow; in other words, it allows us to become the best person we could be. Dr. Bernous provides therapy both in English and Farsi.

Who we are and what we do
As therapists, our goal is to help you uncover your true potential and lead a life that is worth celebrating. While we can’t change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand your past in order to resolve the challenges you face in the present and in your life. By applying individualized therapy approaches and techniques, you will gain insight into your long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life.
Our team works with a wide range of emotional and behavioral issues providing services that span from therapy for depression and anxiety to parenting support, couples counseling, and beyond. We provide a comfortable and supportive atmosphere, as well as offering a highly personalized approach tailored to each of our client’s individual needs to help attain the personal growth they are striving for. We also use different forms of Art-therapy for individuals who are less comfortable talking about their feelings and who would rather freely express through artistic activities.

“Tele-psychology” is the natural evolution of healthcare in the digital world. Under California law, “Tele-health” or “Tele-psychology” is the delivery of health care services using information and communication to Consult, Diagnose, Treat, or Educate a patient while the patient is at an “originating site” and the health care provider is at a “distant site.”
