Mr. Bergeron currently sees individuals and couples as a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist. He is also licensed as an acupuncturist. Both of these professional licenses allow him to provide a truly holistic approach for those who choose to. Nathan practices in his home/office in Hollywood, California. Nathan is Certified in Brainspotting and in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprogramming). He is a consultant for TRM (Trauma Resiliency Model), a somatic approach which helps his clients access the wisdom of their body and nervous system. Mr. Bergeron is trained as a PACT (Psychobiological Approach to Couple Therapy) couple therapist. He also teaches and facilitates Voice Dialogue sessions; a brilliant approach to help give voice to inner selves [a part of me feels this… while a part of me feels the opposite… and I’m stuck in between both not knowing what to do].
Nathan obtained his Master in Psychology, with emphasis on Depth Psychology, from Pacifica Graduate Institute in Santa Barbara, California in 2008. The Board of Behavioral Sciences granted him his Marriage and Family Therapist License in 2011.
Mr. Bergeron obtained his Masters Degree in Oriental Medicine — with top honors (Cum Laude) — from Dongguk Royal University in Los Angeles, class of 2003.
- Nathan received his License to practice acupuncture from the California State Board in 2003.
- Nathan graduated from the “Institut Canadien d’Acupuncture” in Montréal class of 1983. He co-founded “La Clinique d’Acupuncture du Bas Saint Laurent” in Rimouski, Québec, Canada in 1986, with Mrs. Lorraine Massé.
Shortly after moving to Los Angeles in 1990, Nathan was introduced to a branch of depth psychology called Voice Dialogue; created by Dr. Hal & Sidra Stone Ph.Ds. From that point on, he began working his personal process with Voice Dialogue, read everything published on the subject, and studied and trained with J. Tamar Stone, M.A., daughter of Hal Stone, and with Martha-Lou Wolff. After many years of studying and training, Nathan began lecturing, teaching and offering Voice Dialogue workshops in Los Angeles, Boulder, Denver and Montréal. His Masters degree thesis in psychology focussed on the relationship between Voice Dialogue, and the psychological dimensions as understood by Traditional Chinese Medicine.
Nathan is certified in EMDR, and in the Trauma Resiliency Model. He is also on the certification track to become a Certified Brainspotting therapist, another powerful modality, which helps his clients lead more embodied and empowered lives. All of these therapeutic modalities can be used seamlessly, or independently. Each in their own ways, they allow access to the unconscious memory networks in the brain and mind, so that the processing and healing of difficult, emotionally charged (traumatic) memories can be successful.
Nathan is also on the certification track to become a Certified PACT couple therapist. This cutting edge approach to couple therapy — created by Dr. Stan Tatkin — allows couples to communicate better, co-regulate each other more efficiently, and therefore, re-kindle and reinforce their bond. Ultimately, PACT teaches couple to be in a secure functioning relationship.
