Do you feel that your past therapists didn't ask many questions or provide much useful feedback? Did they make you feel like just another number? My name's Stephen and I gravitate towards authentic and genuine human connections. I have a passion for helping others become the best version of themselves. Sessions with me are well balanced and focus on the progress you've made as well as the goals you want to achieve. It's affirming to highlight your accomplishments and I cherish opportunities to teach new skills to help clients better navigate their lives. As your counselor, I'll be your champion. My work and worldview is influenced by the humanities and social/racial justice. I'm drawn to the human condition and its intersection with identity; everyone has their own strengths. For instance, the work of Carl Rogers and Victor Frankl have left an impression on me and for that reason, I strive to support and empower my clients. I'm known for being present, a great listener, which helps clients feel seen and heard, stay engaged and motivated. My approach is intuitive and it'll help you in making better decisions. When you need support, I'll honor that, and when you need solutions, I'll provide that too. I can help you improve your communication, set healthy boundaries, and manage expectations. My clients learn how to reduce negative thoughts, see other perspectives, and make incremental goals that don't feel impossible. I look forward to working with you too!
