Isabel Bernal-Ward, PhD, Psychologist in Thousand Oaks
One of the best investments you will ever make is becoming a better you. I have 20 years of experience helping children, adolescents, and adults achieve just that and resolve issues important to them. I tailor my services toward each client's specific counseling needs. I have experience working with a wide variety of issues in very practical and culturally sensitive ways. I look forward to helping you talk about, deal with, and/or resolve issues important to you. All at your own pace.
I specialize in assisting clients cope with abuse (sexual, physical, emotional, spiritual), depression, anxiety, parenting, and relationship issues with others. For some customers who desire to integrate their christian beliefs with counseling, I am a Board Certified Professional Christian Counselor.
