About Me

Something's wrong and you may or may not know why. Either way, you've come here and you're reading this because you need to make a change. Whether you are experiencing depression, anxiety, issues with self-doubt/self-confidence, existential difficulties, difficulties with relationships, or maybe life is great but you'd like it to be better by getting to deeper life issues, I am at your service. I'm looking forward to meeting you and getting to know you better. Let's walk your path together and create the life you want. I have an eclectic style, utilizing CBT/DBT, motivational interviewing, psychoanalysis, and mindfulness-based treatment modalities. No matter what, my aim is to meet you where you are. I work well with many different kinds of people and have worked with people of many different cultures and abilities/disabilities. Although it is not a requirement, spirituality/spiritual practice can be incorporated into our sessions. I am open to suggestion, if needed, and if requested, can provide spiritual guidance, especially regarding regular practice. Belief is not a requirement, and yet that too is something I am comfortable helping you process.

Written by K.I. on Oct 09, 2018 after counseling with Steven for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, eating disorders, sleeping disorders, self esteem, and bipolar disorder

I have been seeing Steve for a month or so. He has helped me so much in a short period of time. He has patiently listened as I have gone on and on about some serious issues. He has had many helpful and realistic methods to get me to open up. I am a tough cookie to crack and he hasn't at anytime made me feel like it was too much to deal with or that I should feel bad about needing help. He challenges me to see the person that I am. I always feel better after talking to him. He has a good heart and makes you feel like he is a real person not just a talking textbook.

As someone who has been in therapy before, when I started looking for a therapist I was very specific about what I wanted. I went through a few therapists and was just about to give up the search when I came across Steve. I don't think I've ever connected with a therapist as well as I have with Steve! The conversations flow easily, he offers great perspective, asks lots of questions which really get me thinking about what I've said and about things I haven't thought of before, and truly shows he cares about me as an individual. I feel like I can talk to him about anything and everything and that no matter what, I'll always have his support. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a truly exceptional therapist!
