Counselor Accused of Impropriety Back in Business as Life Coach

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) - His license to counsel troubled adolescents and teens was suspended by the State of Texas four months ago, but 3News has learned that 44-year old Robert Berlin is back in business providing guidance to adult and teen males outside of the state.

Berlin's newest venture was brought to the attention of 3News by Corpus Christi residents who have filed complaints against him in the past.

Since his counseling license was taken away by the State in April, Berlin has moved to Kansas City, Missouri. He has set up a website advertising his services as a "life coach."

The website is called "The Better Man," with a subtitle advertising "life coaching services for men." The site claims to help customers deal with everything from relationship issues, career planning, time and anger management to pornography addiction and bully proofing.

Berlin calls himself a life coach, displays his educational credentials and even uses his South Texas cell phone number. However, at least one Corpus Christi counselor who was among several people who complained to the State about Berlin's alleged impropriety with patients said the website is a ruse.

Corpus Christi police have investigated the allegations, but have since closed the case. Berlin has not been charged with a crime.

Incidentally, being a life coach requires no formal education or state certification. It is like becoming an ordained minister with the Universal Life Church -- you pay a fee and print out a certificate.
