Hi, I'm Kevin Bergen. Welcome to my profile!
Kevin Bergen's Bio:
As a therapist, I help people find and restore peace to their lives. Whether it's marriage, work, being single, spirituality, compulsive behavior, or deeply ingrained beliefs about self worth, I love to help people transform their lives to make room for effectiveness, connection, and joy.
After working in manufacturing for 15 years, I went back to school and have been seeing clients since 2001 providing counseling to a diverse clientele. Through my extensive experience, I'm now one of the most trusted therapists in this field. I attended Pepperdine University and trained at 1736 Family Crisis Center in California and in private practice.
As a forward thinking therapist, I produce a regular podcast, "Recovery Support with Kevin Bergen" to support those recovering from compulsive sexual behavior (available through iTunes and on your smart phone at recoverysupport.podbean.com/mobile ). My graduate work was done at Pepperdine University after which my speciality became relationships and addictive behavior. I currently serve as the Director & lead therapist at The Center for Counseling, Recovery, & Growth. www.centercrg.com

Director / Therapist at The Center for Counseling, Recovery, & GrowthJanuary 2001
THE CENTER FOR COUNSELING, RECOVERY, & GROWTH is a group of diverse practitioners that help with issues from relationships and addictions to spiritual healing and hypnosis. I, as a therapist, personally love working with married couples and pre-marriage couples, and I specialize in helping people get their lives back when they discover their sexual behavior is out of control. This could be simply compulsive pornography viewing or frequenting strip clubs or prostitutes. Addiction is a disease, and it won't go away by itself. And I see terrific recovery in the lives I work with EVERY DAY.
