Steven Shaps

Licensed Marriage Family Therapist

Psychotherapy means many different things to people. More often then not, there is a belief that there must be something terribly wrong with us to seek assistance with common challenges that face each one of us on a daily basis.  Regardless it is important to establish a trusting relationship first.

My Approach

We live in a society that gives us the constant message that we must succeed at all costs in order, be in control, approved of,  find security and have our dreams fulfilled. It is easy to succeed on one hand, yet life brings challenging situations and having those skills handy to deal with unfulfilled expectations is paramount. My approach to supporting those with challenges is learn to gain altitude with respect to attitude and institute skills that provides understanding when emotional reactions seem to take us over. treatment approaches, maybe cognitive behavioral, somatic, Bio-energetics, mindfulness, body-centered approaches, non-dual and eastern practices,
