About me

My name is Steve Weiss and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Arizona. As an experienced therapist with years in the field, I am committed to my clients' journey of recovery from whatever is challenging or interfering with their quality of life. My clinical specialties are couples and family therapy, as well as individual counseling for life issues such as anxiety, depression, trauma, grief/loss, stress management, and relationship difficulties. I also work with addiction and personality disorders. My clinical philosophy is to start where my clients are at; I understand that changes are difficult and ultimately a choice. My approach is to empower clients to look at their strengths and challenges, and assist them in deciding what changes they wish to make. I am also comfortable in working with clients whose faith is an important part of their lives. I strive to always be transparent and "clinically humble", and understand that the client is the expert regarding his or her life. Finally, therapy for me starts with the therapeutic relationship which I work to develop with all my clients, so we can develop a supportive, therapeutic, treatment environment.

I have recently started working with Stephen Weiss. I can attest to his knowledge and commitment to help his clients grow. He made it clear that that’s what his intentions are. His intentions are to help his clients grow and get them to the point where they no longer need therapy. When he asked me my first set of self-focused questions, I immediately started to adopt new practices. It was as if he knew what to say or ask that would help me start building my foundation. I would recommend his help to anyone who is looking for real change. Fair warning; it does come with the price of reflecting on yourself and facing your own issues, problems, and secrets that you try to mask or hide from the world. That’s what I am learning so far, at least. Thanks Stephen

Excellent therapist. He has brought me a long ways in a short period of time. My life has taken a 180 since seeing Stephen Weiss. And in only 2 or 3 monnths.
