Welcome! My Name is Nick Caruso I am a mastered prepared, Licensed Clinical Social Worker practicing in Arizona where I have provided counseling services for implementing effective parenting techniques, young adults, couples and family therapy for over the past 30 years. I am also a certified educator having served as a full time Lecturer at Arizona State University (23 years) preparing graduate students for clinical practice.
My counseling style is engaging, client centered and strength based. My approach is multifaceted utilizing best practice techniques from multiple theoretical perspectives. I approach counseling as a partnership as you are the best expert on yourself, within a problem is the solution, and my role is to help facilitate you maximizing your authentic self and extinguishing self-defeating behaviors. We start where you are at, identify the goals you are motivated to achieve and develop strategies to achieve those goals be they individual and or in your relationships with others.
I look forward to the opportunity to work with you and commend your courage to engage in the work to be your personal best. More information on my past professional work experiences I bring to Betterhelp members can be found at: carusocounseling.wordpress.com

Great therapist and friend, If you want a therapist that really cares, then Prof. Caruso is the guy. I often times felt like I was talking to a friend. 10/10 recommend him.
Professor Nick, You have been absolutely extraordinary! I had a feeling I’d like you before we started and you sent me the worksheet to understand me better! Thank you, thank you, thank you! You restored my faith and showed me what a caring therapist really looks like and that YOU do exist! My best to you! - Gaby
I would recommend everyone to have a therapist they can speak to. Prof.Caruso is respectful and attentive. You can tell that he cares deeply and tries to find different ways that the therapy will work for the unique individual. I think this is one of the most important emotion to feel as a patient-that the person cares about your well being. Prof.Caruso is goal based, with me anyways. It’s nice to have someone to message about that thoughts I have and receive wise responses that comes from years of education and experience. It’s my 3rd week into therapy with Prof.Caruso and I am happy that I have started. I would truly recommend it for everyone.
Nick has helped me so much during these past few months. Even better yet, he has been teaching me how to help myself. He is very easy to talk to and has lots of experience which he is able to apply to my situation and give advice.
Professor Caruso has been a blessing. He is very knowledgeable and helpful in my time of need. His advice has covered a variety of my issues varying from substance addiction counseling to relationship advice. His kindness and patience make him easy to talk to. He is down to earth and goal oriented which makes his advice easy to follow. He never feels judgmental and it truly feels like he listens deeply and actually cares about me. I would highly recommend his services to anyone struggling. Thank you for all your help Professor Caruso.
