Liza Caraglio

(MS, LMFT)

About Me

I strive to assist my clients in reaching their full potential by helping them to develop positive self-esteem and strong coping skills, and to have healthy relationships, personally and professionally. Whether you are struggling with life's everyday challenges, or more serious trauma, we can work together to provide you with the tools you need to be happy and healthy.

I work primarily with adults and older adolescents on a variety of issues including but not limited to the development of positive communication skills, dealing with marital/relationship issues and divorce, having positive parenting and co-parenting relationships, anger management, depression, anxiety, grief/loss and self-esteem building.

I hold a Post-Master's Certification in clinical issues in adoption. I have worked extensively with adoptive parents, children who have been adopted and adults who were adopted as children.

With over 16 years of experience I have helped guide my clients with sensitivity, compassion, and a strengths-based approach to find their own inner wisdom and achieve their life goals. My style is to be a supportive and collaborative partner with my clients to help them use their own self-leadership to find creative and lasting solutions to life's challenges, which stems from my deep belief that people possess an amazing innate ability to heal and find their own answers.

I infuse what can be serious and heavy work with humor and energy, to shift out of a focus on problems, into a focus on strengths and solutions. My therapeutic style is collaborative, empowering and strength-based.

I genuinely care for my clients and it gives me great satisfaction to help them to identify and capitalize on their strengths and resiliencies, which will help them make the necessary strides to live a happier, more successful life. I work with my clients on past and present experiences which are impacting their lives negatively and standing in the way of growth.

My practice style emphasizes families and relationships. Relationships are the foundation of who we are as people. We are hard-wired to seek out connections with other human beings. Sometimes we run into difficulties in our most intimate relationships, or need help through the grieving process when a relationship ends. I like to laugh, and therapy is often fun as well as work. I truly love what I do, helping people find the solutions to life's challenges.

The decision to enter a therapeutic relationship can be an intimidating one. I attempt to alleviate any anxieties you may have about taking this step and work toward gaining a clear understanding of what your goals are. You are the "expert" on your life. I will offer a collaborative voice to facilitate your own growth process. Whether faced with repeating negative patterns, a difficult life transition, or feeling overwhelmed by life's responsibilities and challenges, I will meet you where you are at.

Together, we will discuss areas of your life where you feel confident, as well as those which need attention and fine-tuning. Please contact me to discuss your therapeutic needs and together we can develop a plan for how you can reach your goals!

Written by A.D. on Sep 21, 2018 after counseling with Liza for 5 months on issues concerning depression, family conflicts, parenting issues, and self esteem

I have recommended BetterHelp many times.

Written by R.O. on Sep 13, 2018 after counseling with Liza for 1 year and 5 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship, intimacy-related, and self esteem

Liza has been my counsellor for 18 months and has supported me through some major ups and down of my relationships. She is flexible, open minded and understanding- I never feel judged by her. Great counsellor!

Written by R.I. on Jun 29, 2018 after counseling with Liza for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship, intimacy-related, eating, self esteem, and career

Liza has been really wonderful. She responds around the same time everyday m-f, so I know when I can expect her response. She is very supportive and you can really tell she cares about her clients. She will even check up on me if she hasn't heard from me in a while. I think were are very like-minded. I would absolutely recommend her to my friends and family.

Excellent counselor; I would highly recommend Liza to a friend or family member.

Written by I.D. on May 08, 2018 after counseling with Liza for 4 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship, family, self esteem, and anger

Liza is an amazing counselor. I started working with her late last year, and in just the short few months we've been working together, she has helped me overcome a lot of struggles. She is a great listener, and really takes everything you say to heart, as well as remembers what you say and have expressed concern over. She is very personable, I feel like I have a good connection with her, and I feel very comfortable telling her whatever it is that's on my mind.

Written by A.N. on Feb 20, 2018 after counseling with Liza for 5 months on issues concerning relationship, and family

Liza is one of the most honest, supportive, direct and encouraging therapists I've ever worked with. Her ability to weed through much content and address key things, while still validating and "hearing" the whole has been unsurpassed. She's honest with her expertise and experience, and yet has been open to learning about new areas she hasn't directly worked with prior, and done so in such a way that's pleasantly conducive for growth. I have and would recommend working with her if you have the chance.

Liza is a fantastic counselor - she listens carefully and helps me work through things with a caring "tone" and a large dollop of humor and good sense!

Written by M.I. on Jan 02, 2018 after counseling with Liza for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related, sleeping, and anger

Liza is wonderful! Her responses are thoughtful and timely. It is obvious that she considers what I have said seriously before offering her feedback. I recommend her highly.

Written by L.A. on Dec 20, 2017 after counseling with Liza for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship, family, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related, and self esteem

Liza is very patient and understanding. She identified my target areas almost immediately and is helping me to work through a very tough transition period.

Written by L.Y. on Oct 30, 2017 after counseling with Liza for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship, family, parenting, anger, and bipolar

I don't even know where to start. I was a skeptic about this online counseling, but because of scheduling/geographic issues, I gave it a shot. And they matched me with Liza. I feel tremendously lucky. I've been in therapy a couple of times before, but this has been my best experience. Not only is it convenient (& not limited to an hour!), but Liza is sharp as a tack. She hears what I'm saying, is supportive, has great insight, and isn't afraid to tell me what I probably don't want to hear. Terrific terrific experience. I highly recommend her.

Written by T.H. on Oct 24, 2017 after counseling with Liza for 1 month on issues concerning stress, anxiety, grief, intimacy-related, and self esteem

Liza is an amazing counselor with extensive experience. She manages to show me a new perspective for things that I am struggling with and gives good advice for what to do. I strongly recommend her!

Written by C.A. on Oct 13, 2017 after counseling with Liza for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship, family, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related, and self esteem

Liza has been an incredible addition to my life. I was at one of my lowest points, and my insurance through the VA would only cover counselors 2 hours away. I thought I was trapped until I tried BetterHelp, and Liza was able to show me the way out of my mental rut, and appreciate the person I am after going through so many life trials instead of being ashamed. I am a work in progress, but I'm glad Liza is around to help me through it!

Written by I.A. on Apr 20, 2017 after counseling with Liza for 3 weeks on issues concerning relationship, and self esteem

Liza Caraglio is unequivocally the most helpful counselor/therapist that I have ever worked with. She's helped me immensely with understanding the relationships in my life, and she's incredibly insightful and is able to identify patterns or trends in my life that I don't notice. She's also encouraging and always positive, and reading her messages is something I always look forward to. I would highly recommend Liza as a counselor, and I'm really grateful that I got matched with her.
