Steve is a Marriage & Family Therapist at River City Counseling.

My friend Steve.

I met Steve 25 years ago, while I was working at the Westchester Family YMCA. As you can see, Steve has an infectious smile. We became instant friends. Here’s a bit about his background.

In his teens and early 20s, he knew that he wanted to work with people but wasn’t sure exactly how that would look. After finishing college at Santa Clara University, he did a year of volunteer work, hoping it would give him the time to find a professional direction.

Steve faced some personal challenges. After trying to figure things out on his own, he realized that he needed a counselor’s help. Not only did he feel happier and more satisfied with his life, but he was thrilled to recognize that he’d found his career path. He also realized that he needed more life experiences before entering graduate school, so he taught middle school for two years and then entered the graduate program at Pepperdine University. In 1996, Steve began to see clients.

River City Counseling Services in Sacramento.

In 2005, Steve opened his doors to provide Teen Counseling, Parent Counseling, Couples Counseling, Individual Counseling, Walk-and-Talk Counseling, and Teletherapy. At a time when many of us or our family members may be experiencing some anxiety, what can we do?

Steve, by nature, is a wonderful conversationalist, and like all great therapists, he is a great listener as well.

We will be talking about the importance of paying attention to what kids are going through now. At the same time, it’s important to check into how we are functioning. Our kids are watching us. For some of us, our kids have kids of their own.  Maybe you visualize yourself living in a bubble. Now what?  Do you feel stuck? We will be talking about that, too!

We are going to co-create a roadmap with the destination to be determined.

Tune in to hear his suggestions on how to adapt during our “new normal.”
