I have seen numerous therapists in my life with less than stellar results. Stephen, is a Happy deviation from that norm. He is easy to talk with, gives solid feedback, and makes suggestions on actions that I can take. I have found his therapy to be very helpful.

Steven is a wonderful therapist. He is compassionate, kind, and honest in a way that is not judgmental while also telling you what you need to know and hear. I would highly recommend him to anyone, especially those dealing with substance abuse issues.
