About

You may be on my profile 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's Groups


Moving Towards Self-Compassion: Inner Critic Work

This 6-session group will be run virtually on Zoom by Alysha. This group is born out of discussions Alysha has had with several clients in their individual sessions and topics will be drawn from these themes. Some examples include: shame/embarrassment/guilt towards body image, inner critic work, building self-worth and confidence, interpersonal relationships and conflict (including social anxieties), trauma healing and building pathways forward. The goal of this group is to bring together clients who are currently experiencing body image issues, mental health issues related to a past or current trauma, and lack of self-worth
