Steve believes we all have a natural tendency to learn, adapt, and grow—in relationship to ourselves, to others, and to the world. As we grow up, competition for our attention and awareness increases, and it can be easy to become overwhelmed and lose balance. Steve intends the therapy to be a place where you can clarify your connection to this innate human tendency—not only for yourself, but for all your relationships. Think of therapy as a place where you show up for YOU, for that very being you have been gifted to live this life.
Steve’s orientation emerges from psychodynamic, Gestalt, Attachment, Relational, Somatic, and CBT theories and practices. He works with adults, teens, adolescents, couples and families in the following areas: trauma, relationships, grief, sexuality, anxiety, creativity, depression, career, and others. You can think of Steve as a compassionate, and curious traveling companion for this leg of your journey. You’ll discover and/or recover cherished values and move towards dialogue, intentions, and behaviors that align with those values.
Steve obtained an M.A. in Psychology with an emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy from California Southern University and trained at Open Paths Counseling Center. He is trained in EMDR and is currently training to become a certified Gestalt therapist. He welcome identities of any race, gender, religion, sexuality, ethnicity, immigration status, ability, neurodiversity, or relationship form. He looks forward to speaking with you.
