Hello, I am so happy you are here and have decided to seek counseling. I know personally and professionally how scary it can be to take that first step towards help. Helping others has always been a passion of mine, I strive to assist others in setting goals and gaining coping skills for themselves. I have experience working with mostly individuals and small groups. I have spent the last two years working in the school setting as a social worker. I helped adolescents K-8 navigate life stressors such as: divorce, anxiety, depression, bullying, stress, grief, self-esteem, gender identity/confusion, and more. Before I worked in a school district, I worked in the mental health field as a crisis clinician. Life can be very stressful at times and become overwhelming, I helped individuals who were experiencing suicidal or homicidal thoughts. I currently have my MSW and working towards my LCSW. I have recently grown my techniques by taking extensive training in CBT and EMDR.
I believe in treating each person with compassion, and respect. I want every client to feel relaxed and that they are in a caring environment. Every person's journey in life is unique to them, and if you find yourself needing some relief then I am here to help. I am here to tell you that you do not have to do it all on your own. Make the first step to making your mental health a priority. I can see you out of our Jerseyville location as well through telehealth.

I'm Steve, a school social worker with a passion for working with children and pre-adolescent youth. My goal is to offer support and build strong relationships with my clients through various activities. I have experience working with diverse emotions, genders, sexual identities, traumas, and family, peer, or school issues.
My approach is to meet my clients where they are, providing a safe space for them to process their feelings and express themselves comfortably. I believe in building trust through mediums that resonate with children, such as playing sports, engaging in arts and crafts, or enjoying board games. I am well-versed in trauma, the foster care system, and the unique stressors faced by today's youth, including social media, high expectations, bullying, and everyday challenges.
During sessions, I offer support and help youth process complex emotions, thoughts, and feelings. I empower them to develop de-escalation, coping, strategy-building, and goal-setting skills. I firmly believe that teaching children appropriate coping mechanisms at an early stage allows them to build higher self-esteem and maintain a positive outlook in their everyday lives. Once a trusting relationship is established, I involve important individuals in my clients' lives in the healing process. This may include sessions with the youth to discuss progress and goals. Engaging others clinically enhances the family dynamic and promotes open communication within the youth's everyday life.
As a caregiver, seeking support for your child is a crucial step in fostering open communication. I value your feedback and input and incorporate them into my assessments and sessions with your child. Together, we can explore ways to strengthen your relationship with your child and support their overall well-being.
