Amal Bernal, Licensed Mental Health Counselor


Create Pathways Counseling utilizes a novel empowerment model that encourages and allows for client-driven proactivity in setting goals. As a counselor, I work with a wide range of clients and offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each individual’s circumstances. Personal, professional & lifestyle counseling and psychotherapy utilizes individualized models designed to assist clients in initiating, imagining, preparing for, and homing in on existing resources.
Mastered in the field of counseling, I have several years’ experience working with a broad spectrum of individuals facing a multitude of barriers. In addition to helping with personal, relationship, career, and corporate issues, I am also trained to help individuals with mental health, substance abuse, and co-occurring disorders and can help you by applying my knowledge and training in the capacity of psychotherapy.
Through the years of professional experience working within the mental health community – both in and outpatient environments – I have developed specific tools and will implement scientifically proven interventions to assist you, your family, and/or the support system around you. We will work together to identify, evaluate, plan, and facilitate a supportive, progressive, and self-propelling pathway to becoming your best self.
I offer sessions, both in-person and on the phone. We will start with an initial assessment to clearly define your short and long-term goals, everything from communication skills to personal acceptance. We will use these goals as a foundation to create a strategy for attaining these objectives. Identifying barriers and opportunities through self-discovery leads to fulfilling the client’s objectives. By not only seeking clarity but understanding how to do it effectively and authentically, you can use it as a compass as you navigate through creating your own pathways.
Please inquire about my counseling packages to get optimal results at the best value.
