ABOUT MARRIAGE AND FAMILY THERAPY
Steve’s goal is to help people overcome obstacles, manage their transitions and reach
their potential. Believing that beliefs and behaviors are shaped by interpersonal
relationships, Steve meets with individuals, couples and families to address a wide
range of serious clinical problems including depression and anxiety.
As with most marriage and family therapists, Steve works with each client to diagnose
the problem and put together a treatment plan to address the problem. 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 skills learned and applied can impact work-related, social and dating
relationships as well.
