Dr. Stephen Chece, PHD
Hello, and thank you for considering my services. I'm Dr. Stephen D. Chece, and I am a licensed psychologist, life coach professional in the states of New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania. I received my Ph.D. or Doctorate in clinical psychology from United States International University in 1992, and have over 25 years of clinical experience in the field of child, adolescent, adult and more recently geriatric psychology. I have worked with clients struggling with life issues, mental health challenges throughout the life span that include but not limited to: Areas of Addictions, Anger, Anxiety, ADHD, Alzheimer's Disease, Stroke victims, Depression, Bipolar Disorder, Schizophrenia, Schizoaffective Disorder, Domestic Abuse, Men's, Women's and Parenting Issues, Codependency, Infidelity, LGBT Issues, Peer Relationships, Grieving, Trauma, Loss, Conflict, Self-Esteem, Sexual Struggles, Dementia, Autism, Issues Effecting Families, Couples and Significant Others. I still approach each person enthusiastically, with kindness, dignity & with great respect. My work increases your ability to feel, to love, to hope, to heal, and to succeed. Clients are helped to problem solve and live in joy and peace rather than in pain and fear. This process involves in depth intake evaluation as we work to uncover any difficulties that may be blocking your true potential. You will learn explorations of understanding purpose in life via mindfulness meditation, exploring and understanding thoughts, emotions, behaviors and the importance of true spirituality.

Care Philosophy

Understanding Our Purpose in Life can make all the difference in the quality of your's and your family's life.  You can begin by giving this wonderful gift to your child, or you can start this magnificent journey later in life, it's never too late!    Remember, purpose is a major cornerstone in the foundation of a meaningful human life!

I help you to begin your journey toward self discovery, healing, conflict resolution, inner peace via an in depth intake evaluation to help us understand your strengths, weaknesses and potential barriers that may be preventing you from realizing your full potential. Not being able to get past either internal or external barriers is what usually prompts an individual to reach out for help.  But finding a well qualified, caring, effective, and kind professional is often vital to having a successful outcome.  I believe you have come to the right place!

in Staten Island, ny |
Thoroughly enjoy my sessions with dr Chece and always feel better about my situation when leaving the office.
in Red Bank, NJ |
Dr. Chece was courteous, kind, knowledgeable and very helpful. It was evident that he had years of experience. I would recommend him, to my friends and family.
Altoona, PA |
Dr. Chece would not provide receipts for his evaluation and follow-up sessions. He would not provide any diagnostics or any documentation of his evaluation and its results to other professionals. These are critical elements of continued care and support, especially when his results proved serious mental illness. I would not recommend him.
I apologize for any misunderstanding regarding evaluation results. Evaluations are written for the courts and not the individual because there is very sensative information that can be misunderstood which is why I offer my clients an opportunity to review the results with me once the evaluation is finished. Please give me a call if you care to review your results. Again my apologies for any misunderstanding and for taking so long to get back to you as I did not know it was possible. Dr. Chece
