I have been a mental health counselor for the past 22 years. A lot of my background is in crisis management as well as treating trauma. I worked with children between the ages of 9 and 17. I am currently licensed in the state of Pennsylvania as well as New York.
My orientation uses ACT principles as well as cognitive behavioral techniques. I am trained in EMDR and also specialize in depression as well as anxiety. I also work with couple counseling and relationships.
I graduated with a BS in chemistry at the University of Pittsburg and received my MS in professional counseling from Liberty University in Lynchburg VA. I did my post graduate studies at Argosy University in Sarasota.
I look forward to working with you in the future.

Steve is an amazing therapist and a great guy! He helped my boyfriend and me improve our communication skills.

Steve is the best! He knows and understands how to communicate with people and understands what you are going through. I like the fact that he gives other ideas then just thinking about things. He sends messages all the time of encouragement.
Steve's a great listener and pays attention to my issues prior to recommending tools to help out.
Very good listener, and shares practical tips. Very cheerful and nice to talk to
I am only 2 sessions in with Stephen and I already can feel myself thinking differently about the choices I make and about my future. He has been awesome!
