To ensure safety during COVID-19,  experiential services are offered in-person in an outdoor setting in Parkland or through a secure telehealth video chat throughout Florida.

We Help Children, Teens & Adults Grow Past Trauma & Change

Have you noticed how hard it can be to talk about difficult things? That you are tired of talking about the same thing over and over, but not feeling any better? Have you realized what you need to do to change, but never were able to make that a reality?

Let’s face it, working on difficult issues or dealing with traumatic experiences is HARD! It can be exhausting. It can feel less like growth and more like being stuck, spinning your wheels endlessly.

What makes Berger Counseling Services unique?

It can be a struggle to work on difficult issues, relationships and traumatic experiences.  People often dread going into a stuffy office to talk.  Therapy can often feel like work. At Berger Counseling Services, we have specialized training in utilizing experiential and trauma-focused services to help you create healthy, meaningful growth. Change can be tough, but it doesn't have to be.  When we move the therapy from talking to doing, we change and grow. No experience with horses, art or play needed.

Specialty Services

Working alongside horses allows us to repair relationships, trauma and build new foundations of healthy communication and growth.

Discover How

The act of creation allows us to take everything inside and put it out of our body in a safe, protective space.  Giving us the ability to see our journey with new eyes.

Discover How

Play is the language we all understand. We learn and grow through expression of thoughts and ideas in a non-judgmental setting. We all play.

Discover How 

When we are stuck in our trauma narrative, we need to be unblocked.  EMDR allows a safe, calming way to process our past and grow to a future.

Discover How

Trauma

Your child is so bright, gifted and extraordinary - but they struggle with living up to their potential.  Let us help nourish their minds and motivation.

Worry seems to follow you around - rearing it's ugly head at the worst possible moment. You're anxious about anxiety. Learn how you can calm your mind & heart.

Adoption Foster Care

You brought a child into your home to love and cherish. But it feels like you are hostage to their outbursts. Together we can untangle their trauma and grow as a family together.

It was a difficult decision to end your relationship. Now the hardest part has begun - parenting while apart. Heal together and raise a happy family.

Testimonials

"Marla and Wendy are GREAT. They are so caring and considerate and have really helped me with my teen transition and talk about the difficult stuff. I also love that it isn't JUST talking. The use of the horses and art therapy have helped bring out things that my teen isn't aware of. If you need to help your teen talk more about what is going on... Marla and Wendy are the therapists that you need. They were even super helpful and considerate during COVID-19. They adjusted so quickly so that we didn't miss out on much needed sessions and provided a nice therapy package to help. I would highly recommend them."
