About Me

Hello and welcome.



My name is Brian Berger. I am a licensed mental health counselor with 15 years of experience as a practicing therapist. I firmly believe all people have the power and the ability to heal themselves. I believe my clients know themselves best and thus within possess the tools needed to make dynamic life changes. My role as a counselor is to assist in this process by providing compassion, patience, non-judgment, and when needed, the appropriate push, direction, and insight that will guide you towards improving self-awareness and achieving your personal goals. I view therapy as a collaborative and sacred process that is built on the foundations of openness, trust, and safety.

I received my Bachelors of Arts degree in Psychology from Rutgers University in 2004 and my Masters of Arts degree in Clinical Counseling from Fairleigh Dickinson University in 2007. I have worked in residential, out-patient, corrections, and acute-psychiatric settings with adults, children, adolescents, and families, dealing with issues including anxiety, depression, self-esteem/self-worth, trauma, grief and loss, addictions, intensive mental health, dual-diagnosis, and relationship issues/couples/family therapy. Some additional specialized populations I have served are juvenile offenders, developmental disabilities, human trafficking, LGBTQ, and HIV/chronic health issues.

For the past five years I have worked as the Clinical Director at two correctional treatment facilities, working with both male and female juvenile offenders ages 13-22.

I praise you for the courage and strength you are demonstrating by seeking help and I would be honored to assist you on this journey.

Mr. Berger helped me identify the patterns I go through when acting on the autopilot and which made my life more difficult than it should be. His support, nonjudgmental understand and clarity of guiding me through this journey is amazing and I feel really empowered, relived and happy that I’m making a progress with him.
