Prior to earning his MSW at Virginia Commonwealth University , Steve's clinical experience at the Duke University Medical Center focused on treating anxiety, phobias, and chronic pain using behavioral change techniques and biofeedback-assisted relaxation training. Also trained as a family therapist, Steve currently employs a holistic perspective and draws from several models of therapy including Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavior Therapy (TFCBT), Dialectal Behavior Therapy (DBT), and mindfulness based stress reduction. Steve's work is collaborative, non-judgmental, culturally sensitive, trauma informed, and creative.
We all have the opportunity and the challenge to evolve as our lives unfold. When you want to make a change the support of a therapist can be the key to success. Steve approaches each client with warmth and empathy which support engagement in the therapeutic relationship and creates a foundation of trust upon which real change can be achieved and maintained.
