I've been working with Steve for almost a year now. He's helped me change my way of thinking into something more automatically positive rather than the negative thoughts I always jumped too. He coaches me along as much as anything else, and that's something I think men sometimes need more than anything else; someone to keep you honest and moving in the right direction.
