Steven was a clinical faculty member with Royal University Hospital at the University of Saskatchewan, taught psychology at the University of Phoenix, and taught graduate courses at Adler University in Vancouver from 2006 - 2021.
Steven believes that when working with people, it is important to open himself up to who they are and the reality of their lived experience, establish trust, and identify what the client wants to accomplish. Furthermore, whether working on career, relationships or intra-psychic disturbances like anxiety and depression, Steven believes that there is an opportunity for personal growth that comes from listening to and tapping into your inner wisdom.
Currently, Steven's work has focused on couples and he is creating an online workshop for men going through a high-conflict separation and divorce.
