Accepting New Clients!
Hello, my name is Steven, and I have been told that two of my greatest strengths are I am
easygoing and have excellent listening skills. I am happy to report that I am my cat’s third
favorite person, primarily because I feed her at least once a day. Through over twenty years of
experience in the human service field, I have found laughter and smiles can be the key to
healing and growth. I would be honored to work with you, listen to your life experiences, and
start your healing journey.
For the last twenty five years I have I enjoyed working with adolescents and adults from diverse
settings and populations in various capacities including adolescent residential treatment, as
well as in the addiction, juvenile justice, and child welfare/foster care systems. I specialize in
Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) and provide compassionate treatment to those learning to
heal and cope with anxiety, trauma, relationship difficulties, losing a loved one, eating
disorder/disordered eating, weight loss related challenges, and addiction issues.
I’ve completed my first two years of the Master of Social Work program at Michigan State
University. During my clinical field placement, I’m honored to join such a prestigious clinic here
at North Star Wellness Center. After graduation, I aim to become a licensed LMSW
In my free time, I like running (even when zombies aren’t chasing me), hiking in the wilderness
of Michigan, chasing my cat around the house, attending concerts, listening to podcasts,
hanging out with my family, and making people smile.
