Steven has extensive experience working with adolescents, individuals, families, and couples. He takes a client-centered approach to building therapeutic relationships as a compassionate

facilitator for change. He is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor Associate (WA State Associate License

#MC61194283).  One of the most important parts of Steven’s work as a therapist is his cultural competency orientation when utilizing his theoretical approach (Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and Schema-Focused Therapy). His cultural lens emphasizes the critical aspect of ethnicity on identity, self-determination, and self-worth and strives to help clients reverse the effects of social malnutrition and impoverished life experiences.

Steven is a strong youth advocate and enjoys traveling with his family.
