Professional statement

Sara Caci completed her Master’s degree in Mental Health Counseling from Brooklyn College in 2018. Sara is currently completing a clinical fellowship at the Gestalt Associates for Psychotherapy. She has worked in community mental health, substance abuse outpatient programs, group private practices and has experience in treating a variety of issues including: anxiety, substance abuse, addictions, co-dependency dynamics, relationship issues, self-esteem, chronic pain, mood disorders, cluster B personality traits, and career changes.

Sara’s approach is humanistic, and strengths based. She utilizes third wave behavioral therapies (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy) and draws upon psychodynamic/gestalt theories/interventions to help clients increase their here and now awareness of the emotional/behavioral patterns they have developed as a response to their environments while offering practical tools for change.


Message to clients

I appreciate you taking an important step towards your personal growth! Therapy is a space that allows you to reflect on your experiences and to better connect with your needs, wants, and ultimately what your body is telling you, in a world that can be fast paced or impersonal. My hope in our work together is that you are better able to lead a life aligned with your values, become kinder and accepting to the vulnerable parts of you, and can learn to better connect with others while you confront the breadth/depth of your humanity. Through dialogue, we will discover and assist you in deciding which messages from your environments you want to believe and which messages you choose to disagree with, as you create your unique path in life.
