Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift.
— Eleanor Roosevelt

Steve hasn’t seen it all (yet) but he has witnessed meaningful transformation in countless lives and relationships.  He believes that everyone has the capacity to grow and change, and uses creative interventions to inspire psychological movement in therapy. He loves working with families and couples who may be questioning their connection to one another, and with individuals who feel stuck, unmotivated, or afraid.

As both a therapist and artist, Steve begins work with a background sketch before exploring creative options for building successful outcomes. Whether he’s standing in front of an easel or sitting across from you, his goal is the same -- a beautiful picture with a design that works, and that others can value and appreciate.

In therapy, you are the artist. Steve collaborates with you, listening for strengths and watching for obstacles. Together you view the whole picture of your life from a systemic perspective, exploring the unique system of people, pressures, circumstances, schemas, behaviors, and beliefs that influence your sense of self. Then you add stronger lines and appropriate colors to reveal a more fulfilling image to yourself and others.

ALL Westside therapists welcome and affirm members of the LGBTQI community, as well as any other groups who struggle for support, acceptance, and recognition.
