Citysearch and Yahoo User Reviews for Ms. Bernie Soon, MA, MFT

Exceptionally Gifted Body Psychotherapist 01/18/06 "My experience with Bernie Soon was an incredibly positive one. After suffering severe panic attacks and depression I contacted Ms. Soon after reading about EMDR therapy on the internet. I found her techniques to be extremely comforting and effective. After just one visit I had a complete change in my mental state which allowed me to again feel free of anxiety, depression and panic attacks. I went to her for one follow up session primarily to let her know how successful her technique had been. I would highly recommend her. She is lovely, her place of business is very tranquil and she is very professional. It was a very positive experience." 
Pros: Highly effective, Very professional, Compassionate. 

Compassionate and Down-to-Earth Psychotherapist 
"I came across Bernie Soon for the first time online - actually on here and on Bernie's website - and I feel so lucky to have her as a first-time psychotherapy patient. I have sort of a different problem than the other reviewers on here - where my problem came from years of chronic, toxic parenting.. But the therapy of EMDR is the same. Bernie listens to you in a very comforting, serene, Zen environment and she offers sound suggestions. I plan on continuing to go back to her, also as a lifestyle/leadership coach."  Pros: Ambiance, environment, private. 

Bernie Soon is an Insightful and Caring Therapist 
 "I went to Bernie Soon because of an old cervical sprain that never properly healed and was continuing to cause me problems. Bernie showed me how to slow down and pay attention to the body. Using her background in EMDR and Somatic Experiencing we worked through the trauma that resulted in the neck problems. As a result I get "triggered" less and less and feel a renewed confidence in my body. I highly recommend her services."

A Professional Colleague's Review 
"I have a very high level of trust in Bernie Soon as an extremely compassionate and gifted healer / psychotherapist. I find her to be genuinely committed and qualified in providing the highest standard of care to her clients. As a professional colleague, I have no hesitation in referring clients to her."

A Safe Place to Work on the Self 
"Bernie Soon creates a very comforting and open atmosphere, which allows you to deeply explore yourself and become in tune with your center. Her sessions are all-encompassing and focus on the individual's needs, getting to the core of the problem and allowing a person to really connect to the root of their issue within their body and mind. I am happy to have found someone who takes psychotherapy to a heightened level, helping to bring me in touch with my spirituality and core. 
Pros: calming environment, flexible times, non-judgmental care."

A Great Experience 
"I found Ms. Soon to be a master of her craft. She is knowledgeable, intuitive and creates an inviting and comforting atmosphere that is a cornerstone of therapy. Her EMDR techniques were amazing in their effectiveness. I cannot recommend her too highly." 
Pros: Bedside manner, Knowledge, location.  

Recommendations For Bernie from LinkedIn:

"I met Bernadette Soon over a year ago and since then a brand new world has opened its doors to me.  I had interviewed other therapists but I found myself unhappy with the more conventional ways of treating my problem.  EMDR was totally unknown to me and I have to say that after just one session, I felt and saw the light at the end of my endless misery. I felt immediately something was in motion in me as well as a huge peaceful place where anxiety & discomfort were no longer alive.  * It is difficult to explain but her tranquil and very professional way of treating her patient, I am sure make her a highly sought after expert. Her techniques not only bring peace to you but her intuitive way of helping you will do marvelous things to your entire well being and soul. * Since my therapy ended, my energy level and enthusiasm have quadrupled along with a thirst for more in life and an incomparable success level which I have never experienced in my Business before. Thank you Bernadette, I would highly recommend you to anybody that seeks serious results for a life changing experience."

I have used Bernie's services for some bodywork many times and have found it very helpful. She is very caring, giving and in tune.

hired Bernie as a Somatic Bodyworker in 2005, and hired Bernie more than once

Bernie Soon is an amazing EMDR therapist. It is subtle work, but works on levels you didn't even know you had. I have had 5 of my best friends go to her, all very different, and we all have changed profoundly through working with her. She is completely trustworthy and discreet. There is absolutely no cross-talk. Bernie's manner is soothing, comforting and it works! I cannot recommend her enough. And what's great about working with her, is that she is honest. She does not want you to become dependent on her. She will tell me when I have had enough and to take a few months off. I took six months off from seeing her and then went back for a few sessions before I got married. It is so wonderful to have a therapist like that. I have had others who never want you to leave, and its horrible. I love Bernie.” February 2, 2010.  Top qualities: Great Results, Personable, Expert.  XX
