“My deep hope is to help others overcome obstacles and move towards growth and flourishing. I believe a human is a complex and intricately woven person, with mind, body, and soul and that each aspect of the person influences the others. In therapy I strive to aid in the integration of these three aspects of the self to form a more unified person. There are a variety of things that can fragment the self, from fears and anxieties, to the things we tell ourselves. Using a variety of methods, I work to address the known and unknown challenges in one’s life. I strive to help clients identify those challenges, set goals, and become empowered to make positive changes. “ – Ben Steel
