While working with her young clients at Paradigm, Bernice prefers to use a person-centered approach. Bernice has worked in the mental health field for more than five years, two of them at a residential treatment center as an overnight counselor. She earned a Bachelor’s in Human Services from the University of Phoenix and a Master’s in Counseling with an emphasis on Mental Health from Central Florida. She is working towards her certification as a licensed professional counselor (LPC). Taking long walks with her dogs, traveling abroad and spending time with her family, are a few of the activities that Bernice enjoys when not working.
