Welcome! My name is Steven Caraco and I have been a Marriage and Family Therapist for over twenty years. I specialize in treating addiction and alcoholism, in helping individuals, and aiding couples of all types find increased satisfaction with their lives and partners.
LIFE IS NOT ABOUT FINDING YOURSELF. LIFE IS ABOUT DISCOVERING AND CREATING YOUR BEST SELF.
As a Psychotherapist I am passionate about generating experiences that help you become as you would like to be and feel. My goal is to help you and your family open up to and achieve your potential, and to lead a life that is happy, joyous and free.
Experiences influence who we are, and how we relate. Uncovering these past experiences and patterns allows us to discover what might be in the way of the relationships you are looking for and deserve. Through understanding the past, and how it applies to the current situation I can help you to develop true satisfaction and intimacy. My skill and knowledge about human development, neuroscience, Psychodynamic and Object Relations theory, interpersonal relationships, individuation, mediation, addiction, and family systems empower me to help you repair and develop passionate, respectful and satisfying relationships, including improving your relationship to yourself. Together we will work on transforming whatever is holding you back into a fulfilling and meaningful life.
IS YOUR LIFE IN BALANCE?
If you are experiencing issues in your relationships, anxiety, struggling with alcohol or other addictions, then I can work with you by developing skills, reducing dysfunctional behavior and helping you to understand the underlying dynamics and concerns that may be getting in the way. Treatment may be brief, the skills you learn can last a lifetime.
Are you feeling overwhelmed? Sad? Angry at your significant other? At yourself? What is in the way of you feeling happy and fulfilled? Most of our issues come from not understanding underlying motivations? Together, we work on obtaining insight into your behavior and obstacles, and changing them to be more functional and productive; to help you feel better.
Therapy is for growth and change. It is a place to learn and understand yourself. Therapy is taking a risk for your personal benefit. Are you ready to invest in yourself and your future?
ARE YOU FOR CHANGE?
I will help you move forward on your path to enhance your life. In a relaxing and non-judgmental setting you will feel safe to take the necessary risks for growth and change. In therapy, you will learn problem solving skills and time management. After all, we all have the same 24 hours a day, it is what we do with them that makes so much difference. Solutions to inner conflict are rarely taught to us. Self-love, self-honor and self-care have been overrun by life’s circumstances, leaving us unfulfilled, frustrated and not knowing how to make positive change. During our sessions, you will learn to communicate more effectively, uncover successful and unsuccessful patterns, and apply methods toward positive change. Clients feel empowered and on a positive path to growth and well-being.
