My approach combines many counseling approaches, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Reality therapy, and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique, specific needs and personality.
I believe you have the innate ability to rise above your problems. I am here as a coach to take you from where you are in life to where you want to be. I believe that in order to be truly healed and healthy we all need an approach that heals us emotionally, physically, and spiritually. My compassionate, positive, and personal approach will make you feel comfortable and in control.

Stephen is a great listener and very experienced. He meets you where you are and provides great thought-provoking advice in a very relaxed and non-pushy way. I highly recommend Stephen as a therapist to anyone in need. He helps improve your communication skills and gets right to the root of your problems.

He's very attentive and patient when he is listening to what you are discussing. He is very professional as well as being able to be empathetic. A great therapist and one I hope others would see on a regular basis as I try to.

Whilst I'm just getting started working with Stephen, I have found him very easy to speak to and he is very thorough and thoughtful in his responses. I feel very comfortable with him and we are already making advances in the things I was hoping to.

There is something about Stephen that allows you to just open up. He’s a therapist that you know is listening to you, and is providing helpful feedback. I believe I itch my whole heart that Stephen has been a Godsend to my life in this season of my life.

Steve is the best! He helped me identify and provided me tools to deal with family issues and complexities. He was friendly, warm, reassuring, and honest. This was my first experience with therapy and I could not be happier with Steve. Genuinely sad to be ending our conversations together, but excited to go take on life with the tools Steve provided. If you get put with Steve, just know you are in good hands!
