I have worked with Dr. Chece over the past several years and have been able to accomplish moving closer to my life's purpose. When I began I finished my Master's Degree and was without a job. Now I am teaching music to more than 50 students and enjoying life on a higher level. I would highly recommend Dr. Chece.

Dr. Chece helped me and my family at a very difficult and important time in our life. He helped us to over come many challenges, individually and with my family. Through persistent effort & follow through with our work we were able to relocate to a beautiful community with our young daughter and we are now thriving as a family and I am on top of my game with my work. I now effectively cope with life stressors and have deepened my spiritual life as well. I highly recommend Dr. Chece.

Middletown – Dec 22, 2018
While I appreciate Dr. Chece’s assistance many of his nuances leave me very disappointed. Each week he confirmed the appointment for the next morning only to move the appointment later the morning of the appointment and often he would arrive even later than the appointed time. It became a standard joke at home as to what time he would actually arrive. He then spent a large portion of time either checking his text messages or answering cell calls. I found this to be distracting to sessions.

M. Elena in Red Bank, NJ – Sep 28, 2016
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.
