“What’s become increasingly clear to me over the years is that for me the practice of therapy is part of my spiritual practice. If there’s a deeper commitment it’s rooted in the idea that the practice of relationships, of meaningful connection, is probably the most important thing in my life. I feel I designed a life that’s perfect for me because I get to practice that every day.”
Stephen knew from an early age that he wanted to help people take the pain of their past and transform it into strength. He has eschewed the typical pathways to forge a career that combines a deep commitment to social justice with a passion for lifelong learning. Stephen has dedicated himself to developing better, more effective therapy to work for the most stubborn cases. Also, as a former Outward Bound instructor and Peace Corps volunteer, he offers a practical, solutions-based approach to couples therapy.
Stephen's current primary focus is working with kids and families around developmental trauma through a neurodevelopmental lens. However, he continues to work with couples out of a commitment to connection, and a conviction that the model of intensive treatment works.
