Greetings! I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor and Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselor in Minnesota and a Licensed Professional Counselor in Colorado with 9 years of counseling experience. I have worked with clients with a wide range of struggles including substance use, body image, eating habits, self-esteem, sexuality, depression, anxiety, and relationships.
My counseling style has a foundation in Adlerian Theory where the client and counselor work together in a person-centered framework, with the therapeutic relationship as a primary focus, and an understanding that we live and function within a community. The client and therapist work together to explore one’s struggles, ask questions, gather insight, and work towards change. As the therapist I will offer insight as well for the client to choose a path that best suits their needs to find solutions and move forward to a healthier way of living. I will challenge your thoughts at times, but in a non-confrontational manner and with empathy. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, positive psychology, and a humanistic approach to facilitate self-awareness that empowers you to lead your best life.
I am here to support you and walk with you as you make your way through these changes!

So far so good. Steven is really approachable and I feel safe talking to him.
I really like how proactive my counselor is. He tries to dig deeper into why I'm feeling the way I do and provides really helpful tools and tips. I don't think I'm fixed or anything now, but I feel like I'm in a better spot now and have the support I need to move onward and upward. I've tried other online counseling services before and felt like my messages were brushed off or was told to try any general anxiety-coping techniques I could learn by a simple Google search.
Steven has been very helpful since day one with my treatment. He is responsive and good at communicating and has assisted me in changing my outlook and actions for the better in a short amount of time.
Steven was great. Seems knowledgeable and is always very prompt in his responses.
