About me

I've been a therapist for a lot of years and have a lot of vary diverse experience ranging from individual, couple/relationship, inpatient and outpatient therapy and even training as a hostage negotiator. I've been a certified hypnotherapist, have a background in spiritual counseling as well. As such, I'm not limited to one approach to helping my clients but can offer multiple approaches that fits the individual the best. I have expertise in both mild and severe mental health related issues. While I don't believe that I have all of the answers, I am confident that I can provide ideas, methods, and approaches that are probably very new or different than what you have already currently experienced. My goal for therapy is to find what works best for you, in order to get you feeling and functioning better sooner rather than later.

Stephen is such an understanding, experienced, and amazing therapist. I was very skeptical of going to another therapist. And now I have never been more excited to speak to one. Because he understands my needs and knows how to use his skills and communication to where I understand better. Truly amazing and I highly recommend.
