Owner/Clinical Director

Colleen Nomsa Chali
Clinical Director

Hi my name is Colleen Nomsa Chali, owner of Bridge Vision Licensed Clinical Social Worker Inc. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in the State of California. For a long time, I dreamt about being able to open up an outpatient mental health clinic, where I could work with individuals who needed mental health treatment in my own space and my own time. After I got licensed in 2009, I decided to work towards opening my own Private Practice, and in 2015 of May, I opened up my practice in downtown San Bernardino, as a sole proprietor. In 2016 I decided to change from a Sole Proprietor to an S Cooperation, so I could open up to other psychotherapist who would like to work for Bridge Vision as contractors, that way we can respond more readily to the demand for services.
