Our Therapists

Wellspring first opened its doors in 2004 with five therapists on staff, and since that time has established a reputation for excellence in the community. Many of us have entered the field through other disciplines, with other advanced degrees in such fields as education and divinity. This broad base of life experience and study makes for a rich treatment milieu - through consultation with and education of each other, we have much to offer to you!

Bernie Legner, LMFT
Bernie Legner, LMFT

Dr. Legner's skilled therapy practices specialize in treatments for conditions related to depression, anxiety, PTSD, and the influence of abuse and neglect upon individual, marital and family function. Dr. Legner is especially successful working with adolescents and their families. Dr. Legner employs his unique integration of family systems, narrative, developmental, and attribution theories within a mutual inclusive conversation about clients' hopes, dreams, and yearnings for self and the other most significant people in their life. Hypnosis is a neutral state of attentive concentration freely achieved as the therapist and client work together toward a common goal of deep relaxation. Arriving at this deeply relaxed state frees the clients' mind to acquire new skills and learning. Through the clients' acquired self-hypnosis skills, they can increase emotional calm, quiet an overactive mind, cease smoking, moderate pain level, and enhance self-confidence and a deeper awareness of personal competence.

"Personhood is rooted in something vaster than your experience of yourself as an individual. By listening deeply, I help you towards awareness of this broader self, including strengths and resources previously unknown––and towards useful understanding of life challenges. Wonder and curiosity are powerful agents of healing that we get to employ as we work together."
