About Me

Hello and Welcome,

If you are reading this then chances are you are currently struggling with some mental and emotional difficulties. I want to take this opportunity to say congratulations on taking this first step in working towards your well-being and healing. It is brave of you and I want to recognize it.

My name is Dora Cario and I am a licensed clinical social worker. I have been in the Social Work Field for over ten years and have worked in various settings with people from different backgrounds. I have a general practice seeing people with a broad range of issues, including anxiety, depression, stress-related disorders, trauma-related issues, LBGTQ community, relationship and marital problems, grief or loss, and self-worth and self-love acceptance struggles.

It is my philosophy that a therapist-client relationship is incredibly unique and as such, I use an integrative approach which enables me to be flexible and tailor treatment goals in the most effective way that best suit your needs. I use a variety of treatment techniques including strengths-based therapy, rational emotive behavioral therapy, and cognitive-behavioral therapy. I also practice and perform Mindfulness Meditation and Visual-Guided Meditation. I provide an open and safe, non-judgmental environment allowing you to feel heard, accepted, and respected.

I am looking forward to connecting with you and assisting you with addressing and resolving any struggles or conflicts you may be experiencing. It is important for you to know my only goal as your therapist is to build on your inner strengths and resilience and empower you to find solutions that you can incorporate in your daily life routine.

Speaking with Dora felt like chatting with a friend, I felt so comfortable during our sessions. She was able to help me with my anxiety within three short months! I still have some work to do but Dora set me up with tools that I can continue to use throughout my lifetime. Thank you, Dora!

Dora has completely changed my life. I never thought I’d be able to feel happiness the way I do but she helped me change my perspective on life and now I feel so blessed to live the life I live, especially considering how depressed and anxious I was. I’d recommend Dora to anyone, she has a way with empathy that makes you feel heard. I absolutely adore her and am eternally grateful.

So far Dora has been extremely attentive and worked to create a plan tailored to my needs! :)
