Carly DeCotiis, MA, NCC, LPC, ACS, CCS
In all my years as a doctor I have never come across someone like Carly,in both the professional and personal context. We first met through a mutual patient, who she has helped and continues to help work through a terribly traumatic past in a way I wish every therapist could. I have seen changes in my pt since working with Carly that I am in awe of.
I have been in therapy for over 10 years and throughout that time I have seen at least a dozen therapists before meeting Carly and no one has treated me the way she has. Not only is she warm and open as you expect a therapist but she presents a sense of safety and caring that I have not felt ever in my life. It was because of this feeling that I was able to disclose the details of the abuse I endured that I have not been able to disclose to anyone ever. I am eternally grateful for the time she dedicated to me. Being able to finally tell someone about what happened to me and have it validated gave me the sense of peace that I spent my whole life searching for.
As someone who has been through her share of therapists, medications, feelings of worthlessness, hopelessness, and self-harm, I can honestly say I wouldn't be able to consider those days behind me without the help of Carly Decotiis & DBT. I use to internalize everything and was a pro at apparent competence. I came to Carly at my lowest and with each session left seeing my bits old happy self again. She helps you see different perceptions of situations and gives you the tools to tackle future hurdles and break those cognitive, emotional, and behavioral cycles. Carly is extremely professional, validating, and knowledgeable in her field. I have never met anyone who goes the extra step for her clients, like Carly does.
Carly is working with a family member and I am often present at sessions. Carly is straightforward, direct, logical and no-nonsense, while being benevolent, empathetic, fair, warm and open. She is easy to talk to and easy to understand. She zeroes in on what the essential issue is and gives specific, useful suggestions of action to solve it. I consider finding her to be one of the most fortunate events in our family's history. Do not hesitate to choose Carly if you need her area of expertise and have a chance to benefit from her assistance.
Here's what distinguishes Mrs. DeCotiis work as a therapist; 1. She is the right amount of engaging. She listens and then makes practical comments. 2. She is honest and insightful. She is not afraid to share a fresh perspective. 3. She is as smart as I need her to be. 4. She is charming and fearless, not afraid of challenging conversations. Good skill sets for a therapist, well put together with convenient opportunity to connect.
Carly is an awesome therapist! She is very knowledgeable in her field and is a great resource for DBT. She is easily accessible to offer insight when in a bad place & is very friendly, making it easy to build a good rapport. She has helped me a lot, I can honestly say she is one of the best therapists I have had before. I would highly recommend Carly to anyone seeking a well-respected, professional therapist.
Carly is one of those rare people who is capable of being warm and professional at the same time. She has made herself available to me at inconvenient hours during times of crisis, and has successfully talked me through them using DBT techniques. She has met with my husband and my mother in order to help me better. I would highly recommend this therapist.
I have recently reached out to Carly during a time of significant crisis in my life. From the very beginning she was very kind and made sure I understood I was safe which is a huge deal for me making it much easier for me to open up. I suffer from a lot of symptoms on a daily basis due to my Complex PTSD, Depression, and Anxiety and Carly has helped me greatly. I have been hospitalized, in PROGRAMS and seen other therapists and no one has been able to help me like she has. She is available at insignificant times during crisis and has helped me be able to not only make it through but carry on with my day. She also has reached out to my psychiatrist for me multiple times to help get my medication under control which has made all the difference. She is also very knowledgeable in many different areas including, DBT and CBT, is also ableto explain things to me in a way I can understand, and then help me apply it to my life. Most importantly, I would recommend her to anyone seeking a professional therapist because she truly takes each persons situation into consideration and will take the time necessary to try and come up with an agreement both you and her can be happy with. She is a great therapist!
Carly is a fantastic therapist. I absolutely love her. I'm never nervous to go and talk to her because she makes me feel really comfortable. She has amazing advice and she is very very smart. She has many different techniques she recommends you try for whatever situation you're in. She's a people person and I recommend her to anyone who's looking for a therapist. She's helped me so much over the past few months. She's an amazing listener and always gives her honest feedback. I love having sessions with her even when it was in a group environment. She always smiles and gives off good energy. She never gets upset. All the things I've learned and helped my friends with I've learned from Carly. My family loves her and they are happy with how happy I am with her. She's easy to contact and is always ready to make an appointment with you whenever you need her.
Great therapist, very smart and insightful- knows her DBT stuff well and teaches it in a way that is easy to understand. She takes the time to listen to everything you have to say and gives the best advice and teaches you skills to learn to deal with whatever is going on in your life. Easy to get in touch with and there's no long waits for appointments. Definitely would recommend her to anyone needing a therapist. She has helped me a lot and is the best one out of the many I have tried.
