I am a Marriage and Family therapist licensed in California for 15 years. As a Psychotherapist, I work with a variety of clients covering many of the personal and relationship issues we all struggle to cope with at one time or another in our lives.
Depression, anxiety, stress related problems, relationship concerns, feelings of guilt or shame and even one’s life purpose are all areas that can contribute to temporary or longer periods of difficulties in need of understanding, acceptance and restoration.
One’s healing can come from different sources and often talking with a therapist can lead to subtle movements or deep shifts in the way we experience ourselves, our loved ones and in the world. I am a firm believer that there is magic in the telling and I am here to help you create a safe space to explore your thoughts and feelings. I take a holistic approach to my work and will incorporate several different modalities of treatment depending on the client and the issues presented.
I also have expertise in interpretive Dreamwork and the Enneagram.
Additional areas of focus: Addictions, Family conflicts, Grief, Anger management, Career difficulties, Depression, Coaching, Aging and Geriatric Issues, Caregiver Issues and Stress, Codependency, Commitment Issues, Communication Problems, Control Issues, Divorce and Separation, Emptiness, Family Problems, Forgiveness, Guilt and Shame, Infidelity, Jealousy, Life Purpose, Men's Issues, Midlife Crisis, Money and Financial Issues, Multicultural Concerns, Self-Love, Workplace Issues, Young Adult Issues
Clinical approaches: Client-Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Emotionally-Focused Therapy (EFT), Existential Therapy, Jungian Therapy, Mindfulness Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy

Wonderful therapist! I have worked with Steven for a couple of years. He created a space where I felt safe to be myself, which enabled me to work through so much. I always felt listened to and validated and appreciated his approach and perspective. I felt he genuinely cared and was always kind.

Steven is a really insightful therapist, you can tell that he truly cares and has a passion for his job! Even though I am working through a lot of pain and trauma I look forward to every session.
