Dr. Bernis Riley, Clinical Director


I am Dr. Bernis Riley, clinical director of SoulCare Counseling. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor Supervisor and a Certified EFT Therapist with a Doctorate in Psychology. I am also trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing).

All couples have disagreements, but what happens when you and your spouse disagree? Does it go in circles as you attack and defend, or does one of you get quiet while the other gets frustrated? If so, you’ve probably tried to change this, but you can’t. You’re stuck in a negative cycle that keeps you disconnected so that you can’t communicate, resolve conflict, or discuss problems without falling into your cycle. This negative cycle is the problem.

But there is a way out of the negative cycle, and I can help you find it using Emotionally Focused Therapy. EFT helps you stop the negative cycle by creating a safe emotional connection. You can schedule a free thirty-minute consultation by clicking here. Teletherapy is available for couples who have completed a couples intensive with me.
