Stephen is amazing. He's very patient and remembers everything we talk about. I don't feel like he has to read his notes to remember who I am. He genuinely cares about my mental health and even has gone so far as to provide guidance outside of his nornal job title. I'm so grateful to have him to help support my healing process.

Stephen approaches every session intent on listening and intent on understanding. He does not offer judgement nor does he make you feel unworthy despite the suggestions of society. His strategies are applicable and once committed, you will begin to open doors into yourself that you never knew were there. He’s a brilliant therapist second to none.
