Dr. Dorothea Colavita

“Are you hesitant to talk with family and friends about the issues that are bothering you? Have you tried confiding in those close to you about your struggles,and still feel out of control, overwhelmed, or discouraged? If you are struggling with anxiety, depression, an eating disorder, relationship issues, or life transitions, I would like to help you. I believe it is important to have someone you can confide in and trust to help you feel better and cope with the challenges you are facing. I believe it so strongly that I have made it my life's work.
I know how important a nonjudgmental,caring, and confidential environment is to help you speak openly about the problems you bring to therapy.I will listen to you, take you seriously, and offer my best professional guidance based on many years of professional training and experience in hospital, outpatient, community mental health, and private practice.
My goal is to help you live the life you want. I use a collaborative style to help you increase your self-awareness, recognize your self-defeating thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, and develop the skills to change them. You deserve to have the life you want.”

Specialties include working with individuals, couples, and families on alcohol issues, ambiguous loss, anger management, anxiety, depression, drug abuse, grief/loss issues, internet addiction, LGBTQ concerns; process addictions, stress management, substance use disorders, and trauma.


Greg attends continuing education workshops at the internationally recognized Center of Alcohol/Addiction Studies at Rutgers University, a multidisciplinary institute dedicated to addiction research, education, and training in New Jersey.


Of his work, Greg says, “It’s where compassion intersects human suffering. It’s not enough to be technically competent, a practitioner has to be genuinely caring.”
