Mihaela Bernard, MA, LCPC, Counselor in Elmhurst
Are you looking for a competent, accepting and genuine therapist for yourself or your child? Do you or your family need support in your relationships? Is your kid struggling at school or at home? My name is Mihaela Bernard but most clients call me Misha. I specialize in counseling children and adolescents who struggle with behavioral and emotional issues. In my practice, we work together to help you and/or your family modify the way in which you relate to each other, and to improve the quality of your relationships.
I am experienced in counseling children, adolescents and adults, who face various challenges from divorce and adoption, to self-injurious behaviors, eating and mood disorders, depression and anxiety. I collaborate with school social workers and special education teachers to ensure quality of care for your child in all settings.
Let me provide the expertise and guidance necessary for you to make positive changes and improve your life with those you love. Let's chat on the phone and see if I am the right therapist for you or your family.
