Doris Caralto, also known as Dori, earned her Master’s Degree in Counseling Psychology from National University and is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist since 2000. Her clinical experience includes play therapy for children, individual counseling with teens and adults, couples therapy, and group therapy. Her current primary focus is on individual and couple’s counseling for women and men dealing with life transitions, relationship difficulties, and helping them develop personal well being and positive relationships.

Dori takes a here-and-now, or a solution-focused approach to therapy. By learning to view challenges as opportunities for growth and enrichment, Dori believes you can discover a greater acceptance of reality and a truer sense of fulfillment.

She is passionate about encouraging and teaching clients to focus less on the past and future, while maintaining a greater awareness of the current moment. Being able to face with complete presence the joys and sorrows that life brings will lead to a greater sense of authenticity and peace. Although the journey is not always easy, it is worth the effort.

Dori Caralto’s desire is to be your guide as you courageously face and overcome the obstacles that keep you from becoming your true and best self. Life is happening now, don’t let it pass you by!
