My Story

Dr. Chantelle E. Bernard, Ed.S, MA, LPC

The Counselor Who “Coaches”

C732D03B-0467-4903-B0E3-8181590ADEDD.jpeg

I’m a professional counselor who uses a solution-focused coaching model to help client’s find purpose, achieve balance, and become made whole. I am humbled by the opportunity to walk alongside you as you consider the process of making changes in your life or looking toward a more enriching and authentic future.


Since 2013, I’ve been successfully counseling and coaching clients throughout the Richmond, Virginia area and facilitating their self-growth. I realize that the simple exercise of living exposes us to seen and unforeseen challenges, and that becoming known to oneself is a lifelong task. My own personal life story has taken a series of unexpected turns; however, I feel that I have persevered and thrived over the years. I believe that my personal journey, education, and professional training makes me uniquely situated to serve you on your path of self-discovery.  I also believe that our endeavor to find purpose and to be made whole is stifled when we attempt settle and live in only one part of ourselves.


By choosing MMW, PLLC, you will be able to gain insight into all the parts of yourself, and grab hold of a more authentic, balanced and purpose-filled life. I look forward to the opportunity to help you “bloom, blossom, and thrive”, and gain access to the life you were meant to live.

And the day will come, when the risk to remain tight in a bud is more painful than the risk it takes to blossom”

“Find Your Path to Success and Put Your Life Into Focus”

Professional Life and Relationship Coaching with Minds Made Whole, PLLC is unlike any other organizations of its kind. I take pride in helping people improve their lives, and make the necessary changes needed to live a more fulfilling life. I understand that every individual has unique circumstances, and may require a different path in terms of the type of service that will facilitate their change, as well as the financial resources they have on hand to make it happen. For this reason, I've created various Life Coaching and Relationship Management Plans to make my services as flexible and feasible as possible. However, there are times when an individual needs deeper insight into themselves and their experiences, and professional counseling is needed. I can recommend the best resources in the community by way of referral to those who need it. Sign up for an initial consultation, so we can figure out which services are right for you.

Initial Consultation-“Finding The Right Fit”

Coaching vs. Therapy?

Professional life coaching and counseling are great options for individuals seeking to reduce distress or improve life outcomes.  At Minds Made Whole, PLLC, I offer prospective clients valuable insight and guidance into the type of service that will benefit them the most. In many cases, a coaching relationship is perfect for those who are seeking to make a life transition or amplify success. However, there are times when counseling is more beneficial, and the client’s transformation requires a safe and supportive space to explore the origins of emotional and psychological distress.
