Sometimes people reach a point in their lives where they just feel stuck.

They may feel powerless to change their circumstances, as if things won’t be different no matter what they do.  They may also feel like they just can’t keep up with all of the pressures from school, work, family, or friends. If this sounds like you, you’re not alone. Many people struggle with life situations and their mental health. If this is your experience, you deserve to have support from a therapist in Westchester, NY.


Meet Justine, a therapist in Westchester and White Plains, NY

Hi, my name is Justine Carino, and I help teenagers, young adults and families who are struggling with anxiety, depression, family conflict and relationship issues in White Plains, NY and greater Westchester county. I help people heal from dysfunctional family patterns in order to improve their current relationships and mental health. My goal is to help my clients create a sense of calm, find clarity in their emotions and gain control in the direction of their life.

I'm a licensed mental health counselor who has worked with teens, young adults and families for many years. I have helped people overcome a wide range of obstacles regarding their mental health and family relationships. I am passionate about helping my clients move past the negative thoughts and limiting beliefs that hold them back and help them create positive change.

Contact me today if you're ready to start working towards the life you want with relationships that bring you comfort and connection. You don't have to be alone in this.

My approach to therapy

The clients I work with have come to the point that they can't stand the way things have been going and are desperate for a change. Their levels of anxiety or depression have become stifling and they have developed negative ways of coping with these emotions. They want to stop the fighting and disconnection that shows up in their families. They want to feel in control of their life again. They are up at night thinking of ways they can fix their problems, but they don't know how to or where to start.

That’s where I come in. We’ll work together to help you gain more awareness around your thoughts and behaviors in order to help you get unstuck. I’ll also teach you new strategies for managing your feelings and improving your relationships.

My priority is creating a safe space for you to be yourself. I pride myself on my interactive style and creating strong connections with all of my clients. I believe that having this therapeutic relationship will help you get the most out of our work together. Whether you are dealing with feelings of anxiety, depression, family conflict or relationship issues, it is important that you know that there is hope to feel better and have a satisfying life. We will discover the tools that you already have inside of you that will help you find peace within yourself, accomplish your goals and connect with others in a way that feels good.

Why do people seek therapy?

Everyone’s struggles are a little bit different. There are as many reasons people come to therapy as there are people in this world.

With that being said, there are many common themes I see in the clients I work with. People often start looking for therapists in Westchester, NY when they feel they can no longer continue down the same path they have been. They are unhappy with their relationships, career, or other aspect of their lives but feel stuck and need help making changes. People may also seek therapy after experiencing a difficult life event. Some examples include break-ups, the loss of a parent, or life transitions. At these times in a person’s life, they can benefit from the extra support that a therapist like myself can provide.

Mental health issues are another common reason why people may start therapy. Problems like anxiety and depression can be treated effectively with the help of an experienced therapist. If you’re ready to get support for whatever you’re going through, I encourage you to reach out and schedule an appointment with me today.
