Bertha Myers

(LPC)

About Me

I am a licensed Mental Health Counselor, and I have worked with children for over 25 years. I have experience working with troubled teens in confided settings, school settings, mentoring, and individual counseling. The two areas that have been problematic for children that I have experienced are decision making and studying. There is a process to those, and not knowing how to do either leaves a child that can be easily persuaded or one with low self-confidence. Success depends on how committed your child is to improve, and I will reciprocate by doing my part.

Bertha is the absolute best, she tells it to you straight whether you are ready to hear it or not. She’s genuine, honest, and the best fit for me because she is direct.
She doesn’t take the approach of I only care because this is a paycheck. She loves what she does and is ABSOLUTELY GENUINE in all approaches. She honestly care about you as a person and helping you create better ways of making life better for you in all aspects. She provides me with everyday tools to ensure O make decisions that affect the change I desire in my life.
She is the best!

Working with Bertha has been a breath of fresh air and an experience that I look forward to on a weekly basis. She is the most attentive listener providing great insights on any issue that I present to her and giving me the tools necessary to control the situation and set boundaries and to come out of them whole and at peace

Bertha has been wonderful for us and helped get us back on track. Her advice and frameworks have been very effective and constructive ways for us to rebuild trust and communication. We recommend her to anyone looking to improve their relationships.

Bertha saved my marriage. She’s the best!

Written by K.A. on Apr 14, 2021 after counseling with Bertha for 1 month on issues concerning depression, and stress, anxiety

Bertha is super awesome! She is unlike any counselor I've had! She gives me active goals and ways to manage my problems as well as talking about anything that is bothering me! Other therapists that I've had didn't give me ways to actively challenge my anxiety and healthy ways to cope we would just talk about anxiety as a whole. That's what I love about Bertha! She gives me weekly goals that have greatly improved my daily life with severe anxiety and panic attacks!

Bertha is great. She’s real, honest, and kind. She’s helping me get back to my true self. And I can’t thank her enough.

Written by A.N. on Mar 02, 2021 after counseling with Bertha for 4 months

teen counseling has really worked for us! With many thanks to your amazing counsellor Bertha Myers. Bertha is super smart and very engaging. My partner and I were both able to open up and share our feelings, because of the trust she created. Bertha also gave us a lot of good feedback and great suggestions for things we could do in our daily lives to continue to improve our relationship. Honestly, our relationship has never felt more grounded in mutual love and respect because we now have the tools to express ourselves and listen to each other. I can't believe we wasted so much time being unhappy over misunderstandings. I recommend Bertha to everyone, and hope one day she writes a book with all her handy knowledge.

I have been with Bertha since October 2020. What a pleasure our sessions have been. She has helped me tremendously. Gave me back my confidence and found strength I didn’t know I had. She guided me through rough times, provided me with incredible tools that I use every day. Amazing person and counselor

Written by J.E. on Jan 15, 2021 after counseling with Bertha for 3 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and addictions

I highly recommend this counselor. I worked with Bertha during a difficult time when I was dealing with depression, anxiety, and alcohol abuse. She helped me get my life back on track and improved my positivity. I don't know what I wouldhave done without her help!

Written by K.I. on Dec 21, 2020 after counseling with Bertha for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, and intimacy-related issues

It is a relief to have a counselor who understands my culture without judgement. She is a prime example of why representation is so important in clinical settings. She listens to what I'm saying and appropriately keeps me focused on goals.

Written by M.I. on Dec 16, 2020 after counseling with Bertha for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, lgbt, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, and intimacy-related issues

What I love most about Bertha is her holding space for me to be exactly who I am while helping me to gain important insight about who that is. She has been so receptive to all of my processing, and the self-work assignments have been really pivotal in helping me reach understanding beyond the scope of what we discuss during sessions. I’d recommend Bertha to anyone seeking therapy, especially during this moment when it’s important for us to recognize ourselves as co-creators of our realities and to stay afloat during these wild times.

Bertha is intentional in her practice and with our time. She listens to the struggle and then prepares you the right tools to hear and/or do the most challenging work. We have enjoyed welcoming her into our life and look forward to continuing to work with her.

Very helpful. Sessions give me a lot of insight and help with life stressors and strategies to dealing with them.

Written by T.O. on Nov 06, 2020 after counseling with Bertha for 3 weeks on issues concerning relationship

I paid for four weeks while my husband was deployed. We couldn’t commit to much as he was moving locations after four weeks. However during that time we learned a lot about our communication. We focused on understanding each person in a different light. We still have more work to do but Bertha was great in those four weeks. I recommended her to any company dealing with communication and fight resolution.

Written by M.A. on Oct 31, 2020 after counseling with Bertha for 3 weeks on issues concerning family conflicts

I have been working with Bertha for a few weeks now. This being my first counseling experience, I was initially apprehensive about if I would be able to open up to a stranger. Bertha made that a really easy transition. Her compassion and very detailed attention to my issues alongside tangible things I can put into action to improve has been so helpful. I'm glad a made the decision to try something different .
