Steven has been amazing thus far as I'm trying to learn how to be a better person for myself. He has started to give me tools that will help me be a better and new version of myself. I would definitely recommend him to anyone.

Steve is really easy to talk to. He validated feelings when it makes sense but is not afraid to challenge when it’s necessary. Through our conversations I’ve felt empowered to make the right decisions for myself, whether that means staying on the same path or forging a new one.

He is a clearly engaged and natural, authentic therapist with less judgment and more reverent connection.

He understands what I need and gives me great worksheets. He checks on me during the week. I enjoy every session we have and I feel a lot better in just after 2 video sessions. I have been doing better at my work, myself and my relationships. :)
