This is My Story

Dr. Ginger earned her Doctorate in Psychology from Pepperdine University and has over fifteen years of private practice experience.  To date, she and her husband Dr. Bill Bercaw are the only Licensed Clinical Psychologists who hold both the Certified Sex Therapist Addiction Therapist (CSAT) and Certified Sex Therapist (CST) certifications.

Drs. Bill and Ginger Bercaw are the founders of The California Center for Healing in Pasadena, CA.  The Bercaws are nationally recognized relationship and sexuality experts, appearing regularly on Access Hollywood Live and Fox News as well as being Huffington Post columnists and cited in Men’s Health, Cosmopolitan, Maxim, and the LA Times.

Dr. Ginger and Dr. Bill have a combined total of twenty-five years of private practice experience.  To date, the Bercaws are the only Licensed Clinical Psychologists who hold both the Certified Sex Therapist Addiction Therapist (CSAT) and Certified Sex Therapist (CST) certifications.

Between their private practice, books, groups and intensive seminars, they continue to share their passion for cultivating deeply intimate relationships with thousands of couples from the greater Los Angeles area and far beyond.  The Bercaws’ first book, “The Couple’s Guide to Intimacy” was highly acclaimed by clinicians and non-professionals alike upon its release (2010).  Since then, the book has become a staple for CSAT practices as the Bercaws’ treatment model, Sexual Reintegration Therapy™ has gained broad acceptance and interest within the professional community.  Their most recent book, “From the Living Room to the Bedroom: The Modern Couple’s Guide to Sexual Abundance and Lasting Intimacy” is already receiving rave reviews.  The Bercaws have been featured speakers at professional conferences, trainings, academic institutions and seminars.

Dr. Ginger Bercaw specializes in working with emotional trauma survivors as well as spouses and partners of sex addicts. Additionally, Ginger provides female focused pyscho-education groups and workshops on healthy sexuality.  Her most recent series, “Beyond the Birds and Bees,” gives parents a wealth of information and perspective regarding how to become your child’s trusted ally regarding their developing bodies and healthy sexuality.

Dr. Bill Bercaw’s “Men’s Group for Sexual Integrity” is in its eighth year and has supported many men’s efforts to break free of compulsive sexuality and to embrace lifestyles of self-respect and trustworthiness.  More information…
