“Caroline was my saving grace during the pandemic and has been a huge proponent of improving my quality of life. Her approach id solution-based and through her I’ve learned positive ways to handle the stressors of my life. I have identified unhealthy patterns and learned how to conquer them. She is honest, direct and yet nurturing. RUN, don’t walk… I can’t recommend enough, this extraordinary human being! Jon- Williamsville N.Y.”
“My therapist” Caroline Berger was referred to me by our middle school guidance counselors. My daughter began with Caroline in grade 7. As she began to ‘feel’ better, it was apparent to me that I needed to seek her out for myself. I have other children, and Caroline has become their lifeline. Caroline understand teens, and the trauma that results in being their parents. She is fully informed and vetted within the NY State public school system, enabling her to be a fierce advocate for clients overcoming challenging situations. Caroline is very intuitive, solution oriented and has great resources.! She asks questions that many other therapists don’t. Caroline is, warm, funny and our sessions are thought provoking. At the end of our time together, I feel a shift in my attitude and pep in my step. I trust Caroline implicitly to help me and my family navigate life!”
