I am a clinical social worker, licensed in Connecticut and New York State. I have been helping individuals, couples and families grow and change over my entire 40 year career. Change can be frightening to contemplate, but in reality change is normal. People grow and change on a daily basis as we learn, adapt and grow wiser and gain more experience. Often, being human, we make mistakes or we find that our lives are not what we expected. This can result in depression and/or anxiety, or a disruption in our relationships with families and loved ones. It may even result in serious mental illness. As an experienced therapist, I help my patients become in charge of that change process, rather than victims of it. I can't solve your problems, but I can assist you to solve them yourself.
- Relationship issues
- Family conflicts
- Trauma and abuse
- Parenting issues

Stephen was an excellent therapist and helped me to solidify and achieve the goals I had set out to accomplish through therapy. He offered a great many insights and provided tools for continued improvement. It was wonderful to work with him.
I am so grateful to have found such a wonderful counselor. I finally have a safe place to talk through the darkest parts of my life and continue to receive practical advice that I can actually use to cope with and heal from my trauma and be more comfortable in my day-to-day life. I could not be more pleased with the counselor I was matched with and I look forward to every session even if the discussion topics are rough or painful and I would 100% recommend him to anyone I know.
Stephen is a great counselor! I've had to switch plenty of times before and I'm glad I ended up with him again (Had him before in couples counseling.) Stephen is a great listener and communicates very well. My journey with him is just starting, but I know he will help me bring great results!
I am excited and grateful to continue to work with Stephen.
Stephen is a total blessing that taps into wisdom that is uncommon. We are so lucky to work with him as he helps us grow.
Attentive, experienced and supportive. Very trustworthy.
Stephen is a consummate professional and is great at what he does. He focuses on problems and solutions and is steady and no nonsense. I couldn’t have asked for a better counselor.
Stephen is a very kind, respectful, and attentive person. His questions and insights have guided me to check my behaviour and thoughts long beyond the session. Thank you for sharing your gifts, Stephen!
Steve is wonderfully professional, and alternates between listening and probing at the right times.
Stephen has helped me a great deal with my confidence and learning how to navigate various issues in my personal as well as my academic life.
Stephen Witte is a great counselor, he understands and offers great feedback.
Stephen is easy to talk to and gives good advice. I'm happy I was matched with him.
Really great. I look forward to my weekly session each time.
I have seen other therapists before and have been seeing Stephen for a few months now and he is great! Not only is he kind, he is so knowledgeable and very experienced. One thing that I really appreciate is that Stephen keeps it real. He asks important and challenging questions and wants the best for his clients. I honestly feel that his clients are very fortunate to have him as a therapist.
Conducting talk therapy with Stephen over this platform has helped me greatly. I feel very fortunate to have been matched with him when I joined Better Help several months ago; I and my relationships are better off for it. Weekly counseling with Stephen has helped me become more confident in my instincts and ability to navigate life's day-to-day challenges. I would absolutely recommend sessions with Steve to anyone who's able and willing to put in the work to improve themselves with his gentle guidance.
Stephen Witte offered me clear path and courses of action I needed to take to improve my life and deal depression and anxiety issues. He's a great listener and he knew immediately how to help me after just couple of sessions. Can't recommend him more.
Mr. Witte has exceeded my expectations in a therapist. He listens to me, understands my concerns and helps me to see a path forward. I would highly recommend him.
I found Stephen to be empathetic, yet pragmatic in his approach. Although he is supportive, he encourages a new way of thinking and /or approach to an issue or problem, as often practical solutions are necessary to achieve desired results. He does a very good job of listening and helping a person understand what he/she wants but also needs. In turn, he is able to give feedback in a concise and clear manner, that helps one also keep focused and clear as to the best course of action for specific situations or concerns. In summary; Stephen is a highly effective therapist and I recommend him 1000%.
Mr Witte has been a tremendous help in my situation by being able to ask the rite questions and then help me figure out the answers to those very difficult things. I am not sure I would have been able to come this far in my marriage without his great help.
Steve was very good at listening, being supportive, and helping me deal with my issues. He responds quickly to my messages and is very considerate.
All I can say is I have made more personal progress with Stephen than I have made in years of therapy. He is an excellent listener with a great deal of knowledge and application. I value his opinion as he has never steered me wrong. He listens to me and responds directly to my needs. I highly highly recommend him!
Stephen has been a pleasure to work with. He is calm, reassuring and full of humour and I have greatly enjoyed our sessions and made fast progress with the issues we discussed.
Steve gave me advice that were very profound yet simple and easy to understand. It was a new perspective and I had to take time to change my habits. I would highly recommend him.
Best therapist around. He took the time and effort to listen to me in every call and provided great and sound advice without even the slightest hint of judgment. He helped me get through one of the hardest moments in my life and I couldn’t be more grateful for Steve.
Stephen is a very understanding person. He's done his honest best, in my view, to make sure that I am as comfortable as possible with him. What I appreciate most is that Stephen seems to have a good sense of where and when to pull back, so to speak. He never pushes, always moves at a pace that I am comfortable with no matter what the topic. I know I am all over the place but Stephen, bless his soul, somehow manages to keep up. Wonderful counselor, wonderful person.
I found Stephen Witte to be a very emphatic, professional and kind therapist. He genuinely cares about his patients and will always try to find time and the right words for them, even if they need help outside of usual hours or in a different time zone. He is not only a great listener but also the one to have a thoughtful discussion with, and provide actionable advice and tangible ways of situation solving. Highly recommend.
Stephen has made such a drastic improvement to my life. He is always a source of light, insight, and encouragement. I’m so grateful we were matched I don’t think I could have found a better person who understands and appreciates me as much!
Steve is very kind. He uses great examples that help me understand what I am going through. I am confident he can help me figure myself out.
Professional, polite and understanding. Even with the obstacle of time differences, he makes it work. There's normally a wall and skepticism when signing up for these things, I've only had one session so far but so far I've been converted.
Can’t say enough about Stephen, I wish I would have found him long before. Has helped me tremendously over the past few months, and am looking forward to working with him in the future.
I was going through a crisis in my life and Stephen was instrumental in helping me overcome this difficult period and be able to succeed. He is very supportive, open and encouraging as a counselor - Stephen knew when to share insights and when to listen at the appropriate times. He really helped me reach new breakthroughs and believe in myself again. Would highly recommend him for anyone looking for a counselor.
Steven Witte has been compassionate and very helpful to me thus far. I strongly recommend him and his services as a counselor. He is also a very good listener and has been helping me greatly.
Clear, concise, insightful.
I’ve tried counseling before and been dissatisfied. If you want someone to just listen to your problems without insight, critique or suggestions you can get that for free anywhere.
Stephen is a pleasant person to talk to. He is also experienced & his advice is practical.
I strongly recommend Stephen Witte for counseling and therapy. As a single working mother it can get very stressful and overwhelming and Stephen has helped me understand that it’s ok to feel this way, and how to feel better. Being raised with dysfunctional parents and not wanting to make the same mistake they made I had many questions in regards to raising my son and certain concerns about my sons behavior but he has offered healthy options that make me feel not alone. Definitely worth the try !as a busy single parent that has no time to go to see a therapist, talking on the phone with Steve has definitely made my world a better one. Thank you so much
Mr. Witte not only listens, but offers meaningful and insightful solutions. He has helped me so much in these past few weeks.
