Steff enjoys gardening, hiking, traveling to other countries, and restoring historic homes with her spouse. There’s a theme of restoration in all she does – gardens, houses, people, hearts – “God’s breath in and through.” She says she’s seen the beautiful fruit of recovery in lives changed by the emotional work of restoration: “The work of healing is worthy of respect. Being vulnerable, particularly for men, takes a level of courage and strength.”
Randy calls Steff a “master” in utilizing experiential exercises to get to the hidden roots and feelings under addictions and other struggles. She’s committed to helping clients work through the neglected and damaged rooms in their lives to restore their beauty, their essential goodness, and their freedom in spirit. In a conversation with Randy for the Revealing Men podcast, Steff talks about what she sees as the sacred experience of counseling men.
