About Me

Hello! I have had over 25 years of successful experience as a clinical social worker since I graduated with my Master's Degree in Social Work in 1990. This experience has been most rewarding for me as a Catholic man of faith. I believe that my work counseling others is my calling. I am always glad when clients discuss their faith in session because it gives me permission to incorporate my faith and the inspiration I receive from having such a deep connection with God and Jesus Christ. I believe our faith helps us get through the most difficult times in our lives and allows us to realize that we are never alone, that we are loved unconditionally and that He will help guide us through our trials and tribulations. If we believe or can come to believe that God so loved us that he gave his only begotten Son for us, we will know we can overcome anything.

I would be humbly honored to walk with you in faith if you are dealing with troubling times in your life and look forward to the opportunity to help.

I have been working with Steve for quite some time now (6+ months). He is absolutely fantastic at listening and helping you unlock your potential. I am a high performing Type-A personality and he truly has helped me begin to harness this in a healthy fashion rather than letting my drive take over my emotional state. This has lead to reduced stress and a larger awareness of the fact that I am NOT the center of the universe, but, rather, a part of it and I am here to do good work and love the people around me. If you're looking for a good Christian counselor who has a great deal of experience, Steve is the person you're looking for.

Steve is professional, thoughtful, patient, poses good questions, and makes helpful suggestions. He is quick to listen to slow to speak. Thankful for Steve.

Work with me!
