I have helped many couples find better and more constructive ways to communicate. It is vital that each person within the relationship feels heard and understood. I also help couples address their need for more intimacy, and greater feelings of emotional safety, honesty, and acceptance in every aspect of their relationship.

Families are complex systems. They have the potential to be damaging, polarizing, and tense. They also have the potential to be opportunities for joy, sweetness, support and strength. If there is something you feel your family is in need of in order to help it become stronger, healthier and happier, let me know. I’m happy to help.

I have a book out about divorce.

It is written through the eyes of children. In a lighthearted way, it offers the reader comprehensive information about the familial, social and psychological needs of children during this time of transition. Children, parents, and professionals will all find it a useful guide. It is also written specifically to be inclusive and is appropriate for all types of families.

My Approach

I was trained in Structural Family Therapy, Humanistic Therapy, Psychodynamic and Existential Therapy. While it is important
to be aware of various styles of treatment that could be helpful for each client individually, I believe a responsible clinician is flexible in his or her approach so that it fits the client’s wishes and needs rather than needing the client to adapt to and accept the clinician’s style of treatment.

In addition, when one member of a family, or couple, is sent to me for help, I find it most useful to meet with the couple or family as a whole on a number of occasions. I see issues in a systemic way,
and find it often serves everyone’s needs best when they can see how they trigger behaviors and reactions in
each other instead of one person being sent to me as “the problem”.

I’ve been working with victims of cults and emotional abusers for 27 years. Given the right set of circumstances, it’s all too easy for anyone to fall prey to sociopaths and manipulators.

I wanted to start a show that gives survivors a chance to tell their stories and for experts to teach us what they know. My goal for IndoctriNation is to empower our listeners to protect themselves and those they love from predators, toxic personalities, and destructive organizations.

“Hey dear friends, here’s a big plug for an extraordinary podcast from Rachel Bernstein, called “IndoctriNation”. Each episode features a brilliant interview with a cult survivor about their recruitment, dependence, dread of leaving, and — most importantly — their recovery.
Bernstein is a Marriage and Family Therapist, and her interviewing is welcoming and expansive. This podcast has been extremely healing for me to listen to, because the format is so personable, while too often cult analysis resources feel either highly technical or almost alarmist.
I especially appreciate that at the end of every interview Bernstein does a short and digestible educational piece that summarizes a chunk of theory or collates a number of takeaways that have helped her clients. I’m totally on board with her argument that studying undue influence is public health necessity. Highly, highly recommended. Thank you so much, Rachel.”

Our son is on the Autistic Spectrum, and our daughter loves her brother but gets short changed a lot. We brought her to Rachel so she could get the support she needed as the siblings of someone who has special needs. We also learned, through coming in a few times ourselves, that our daughter had her own special needs because of this that we could learn to respond to and take better care of.
