Steven has a growth-oriented integrative approach to therapy and believes in treating the whole person, not simply a cluster of symptoms. Therapy is a “process of development through intense interactions with others that leads one, through successive metamorphoses, to an ever-evolving authentic self.” It is fundamental to treating the body, mind and situation. The heart of Steven’s practice is to live an emotionally vibrant life with satisfying interpersonal relationships, a relaxed view of paradox and ambivalence, and radical authenticity in terms of being who you are. Steven looks forward to working with patients and learning from them.
