Meet the Owner
Andrea L. Bern, LCSW, RPT

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Registered Play Therapist and Certified AutPlay® Therapy Provider, practicing individual and family therapy. I work with children, adolescents and adults who are struggling both socially and emotionally for a variety of reasons. I specialize in working with children and adolescents through play therapy and various skill building techniques. In addition, I work with children and adolescents with Autism Spectrum Disorder and other neurodevelopmental disorders using AutPlay® Therapy.  Lastly, I work collaboratively with parents and families to foster cohesive and healthy functioning family units. To learn more about AutPlay® Therapy, click on the AutPlay® Therapy tab under SERVICES.

My goal is to work together with each client to promote healthy social and emotional development that leads to feelings of empowerment, balance, and overall wellness.

                            The Practice


Therapy is not a one-size fits all model. My work with each client and family is based on their needs and how they are able to process best. I have experience working with adults, teens, and kids who struggle with anxiety, depression, ADHD, emotional regulation, behavioral issues, trauma, grief, social skills, life transitions, conflict resolution, Autism Spectrum Disorder, and other neurodevelopmental disorders.

Individuals and families who are ready to feel empowered, feel heard, make a change, improve their relationships, become more self aware, and/or feel more confident in their ability to go through life, can start their journey with me.
