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.

Written by M.A. on Jul 24, 2021 after counseling with Steve for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, intimacy-related issues, parenting issues, self esteem, and coping with life changes

steve is incredible and amazing at what he does. he makes people feel so comfy and confident in their own skin. can’t thank him enough.

Written by S.I. on Jul 21, 2021 after counseling with Steve for 1 month on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, and self esteem

I have found Steve to be attentive, empathetic and aware of what is important to me. He talks straight (which I like) but doesn’t put me under pressure (which is important bc of my experience w bullies). He is sensitive to my faith and I feel I can be myself when conversing with him. I’ve been unable to have sessions w him these past two weeks bc of circumstances at home and I miss hearing his bits of wisdom.
