Virtual counseling services from someone who cares.

I know why you’re here.

You’re trying to find the right person to open up to. Someone who will genuinely understand what you’re going through right now and meet you from a place of compassion. 

I understand how scary it can be to talk about the deeply personal issues in your life. Maybe you worry you’ll be judged or feel like your emotions are not valid.

Not here.  At a young age, I realized I had a desire to help others who were struggling emotionally or needed someone to listen to them.  When I was a teenager, I became the person to go to when my co-workers were troubled or faced a difficult situation. “Go talk to Steve. He’s a good listener,” they’d say. I listened quietly and attentively to how they were feeling. It was a time in my life when I knew I found my calling to be a counselor. 

After completing a bachelor’s degree in psychology, I took the next step and completed a master’s degree in counseling.  I recall during those days as a stressed and tired graduate student, seeing my counseling clients re-energized me. 

Now over 30 years later, I’m still the good listener who people go to when they need support and I still find satisfaction doing so. I am there for people who are on a journey to overcome the obstacles and trials in their lives.

And I will be here for you too.
