Clients say that as a result of working with Steven, they experience themselves as having a renewed sense of purpose, direction, more freedom, peace, energy, vitality and a stronger connection to their own life force.
Steven has held past positions including: Military and Family Life Consultant for the Department of Defense, medical social worker, school counsellor, addictions counsellor, teaching parenting classes and graduate school psychology instructor. He has worked with people from a wide variety of cultures with diverse difficulties and circumstances.
Steven believes that problems are opportunities. Problems of all kinds, but especially those that occur between people create the best opportunities for everyone involved to grow and learn. This is something he has been privileged to have learned in his own life and through working with hundreds of clients over the past 18 years. He is trained in using the Human Validation Process Model developed by Virginia Satir as well as Therapeutic Enactment and Somatic Transformation all of which use experiential activities as the basis for healing. Using experientially-based interventions is an effective and lasting way to transform ideas (which are no longer needed or are harmful) and to begin creating new beliefs about one’s self, others and the context people find themselves in. This approach to healing means that movement and action are frequently included in sessions to create transformational processes which allow your natural life-force/spirit, freedom, peace, joy, abundance, and health to flow into a more powerful place in your life.
Steven’s approach has transformational change and life-force congruence as its main purpose and healing is often rapid and long lasting. You will find Steven approachable, humorous and effective in helping you get more of what you want out of your life.
I am a registered provider for the Crime Victim Assistance Program.
Besides being certified by the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association, and registered by the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors, I am also a licensed Marriage, Family and Child Therapist (MFT) in the United States. This means obtaining a masters degree including a dissertation, more than 3000 supervised hours of experience followed by a successful passing of two state administered examinations, prior to being licensed. These requirements are significantly more rigourous than those required here in Canada-not that it is a contest, but I believe this information to be useful to you, the potential client, so you can make an informed choice.
