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.

Steve has been a wonderful confidant and support system for months now. I feel like he truly listens to me, and I have never felt such a connection to open up with a counselor as I do with Steve. I appreciate his ability to support me in ways I didn't even know I need.

He’s helped me break through in ways I haven’t in the past. He reminds me of my value and that it’s ok to be human and feel.

I've been working with Steve for a while now, and I have to say, as someone who has been through many counselors, I've never had a better therapeutic experience! Steve listens attentively and reiterates what you say to make sure he understands it correctly. He asks really thoughtful and insightful questions and never makes me feel judged about anything I tell him. When I message him, he is always quick to respond and provides just as much support through written messaging as he does over the phone. I would highly recommend him to anyone!

I’m a college student and I was dealing with a lot of school and personal stressors, it was starting to take a toll on my motivation and confidence and overall mental health. Speaking with Steven gave me more clarity, he explains exactly how he can best help you to guide you where you would like to go in your life. He’s great at really trying to understand and get the whole picture, he asks a lot of good questions and if it wasn’t for him in this moment I know I would still be stressed and confused with how I should move forward, I now have more solutions instead of issues and I’m seeing things in a whole new light with more confidence and determination, thank you so much Steve!

Steven has been extremely helpful and understanding. He has been a crucial part of my becoming happier and turning my life around.

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.
