Let’s get to know each other a bit.

Welcome to
Kern Wellness Counseling

Hi there! My name’s Jake. I’m an associate marriage and family therapist in Bakersfield, Ca. 

I’m no hotshot company, or a robot. I’m an actual person.

Alright, let’s get right to it.

So, I’ve finally decided to follow through with an idea, and channel some energy into 

developing a local therapist directory. Sounds simple, right?

Well, it’s definitely more than I bargained for, but I love Kern County and the many communities within it. 

So, why not add another resource?


I get it though. There are other great places like PsychologyTodayGoodTherapyBetterHelp and dozens of other fantastic companies that give some pretty good features. And if you’ve got a profile there, keep it!

But, time and time again my clients and friends from all walks of life tell me:


“It’s taken me a long time to find a therapist right for me.”


“I get stuck looking for professionals online. I don’t know what to trust.”


This is where Kern Wellness Counseling comes in, fingers crossed.

What was once a simple blog that catered to a small audience has now gone rouge to mature 

into what I hope to be a helpful local treasure for mental health professionals like yourself.



We’re hopeful this directory can be helpful for private solo and group practices, non-profits and other mental health professional entities for the purpose of client care and working with potential clients in Kern County, Ca.

thank you for your patience!

We are currently developing this site still which means that at this time there are no listings of mental health professionals.

Hello! We look forward to hearing from you.
