Hello! I have successfully practiced clinical social work for over 25 years and have enjoyed helping the many clients I have counseled during my career. You will find me to be caring, understanding, respectful, nonjudgmental, knowledgeable and attentive to your needs. I have experience as a therapist /counselor, case manager, clinical supervisor and mental health clinic director, working with adults, adolescents and children and families and have been effective in helping my clients consistently achieve positive change. My number one objective is to help you feel better and resolve any difficult issues you are coping with. My approach is goal oriented and problem solving, often using cognitive behavioral therapy strategies and motivational interviewing techniques designed to challenge any negative thoughts and improve and maintain your motivation to make the changes needed to resolve issues and problems you are facing. I graduated from The Hunter School of Social Work in 1990 with a Master's Degree in Social Work in New York City and I am currently a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the State of Pennsylvania.
I'm here to help you and look forward to working with you!

Before Steve's counseling, I have been practically mad for 5 months in a row. After listening and telling him my problems, I haven't been mad a lot. Maybe irritated but not to the point how I was before.
Steve is awesome! He is very knowledgeable and knows his stuff. He is easy to talk to and listens.
He doesn't judge. He listens. He never gives an unsolicited opinion. If I ask his opinion, he gives it. Really good dude. Glad I have him as a counselor.
I really value Steve's expertise and insights!
Steve is a very kind man, he’s a great listener, supportive, and helpful. My talks with him have quickly helped sort out feelings, get on track with goals, and aided in my mental well-being. I look forward to our conversations, I’m thankful there are people like Steve out there.
I truly appreciate the time and energy Steve has given me. He has truly helped me navigate through this confusing journey called life and has helped me succeed in finding inner peace.
Steve has created an environment for me where I can share safely. He is patient, and speaks in a way that brings calm. I would recommend Steve to anyone!
Wonderful Counselor. He listens and gives very helpful information and worksheets to help you understand the concepts and apply to your life experiences.
Steve is very warm and I feel safe talking to him.
Steve is smart, kind, and timely with his responses. I enjoy our conversations. He has a calm, positive demeanor and seems very genuine. He's great.
Steve is excellent at listening and giving good methods of reducing anxiety and depression. Knowing I can message him with anything has already helped more than I imagined when exploring betterhelp.
