Christ-Centered Counseling

African American Couple

Steve Pylkas


Steve’s goal is to help individuals, couples and families overcome obstacles, manage their transitions and reach their potentials.  His practice includes a wide range of serious clinical problems including depression and anxiety.  He has helped many people learn and implement effective communication techniques that stand the test of time.  These empower his clients to resolve conflict and to work through difficult issues on their own, long after therapy sessions have concluded.

Steve works with each client to diagnose the problem, to set goals and to put together a strategic treatment plan to address their challenges. Helping people develop more effective coping, communication and conflict-resolution skills, he often counsels adult children of alcoholic families, step-families and married couples. The interpersonal skills learned and applied often enhance people's work-related, social and dating relationships as well.


Stephen has a Master of Theology (MTh) from Harding School of Theology in Memphis, Tennessee. He has been counseling more than 30 years in churches, private practice and, now, at Compassionate Christian Counseling. As a Clinical Fellow of the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy since 1991, he has been licensed in Michigan as a Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) in since 2011. He and his wife Pam will have been married for 40 years in 2019. They are now empty-nesters with two adult daughters and two grandchildren. Steve currently serves as the minister of the Shoreline Church in Muskegon Heights.
