Steve specializes in coaching individuals who are working through life issues related to coping strategies, such as alcohol and drugs, that create negative consequences. Life coaching consists of two or more people participating in an equally self-disclosing conversation regarding how to best grapple with current challenges through relationships, education, and by using community-based supports — it is not psychological, in-depth therapy.
Steve believes there are many pathways to change and that a person who is engaged in change-related activities is in recovery. These change strategies include both theist and secular community-based supports such as 12-step groups, Smart Recovery, recovery residences, men’s work approaches such as the ManKind Project and skills-based practices such as meditation techniques that focus on mood stabilization and on reducing craving. Steve works with a strengths-based approach to coaching, which entails identifying life skills that have worked in the past and endeavoring to apply those skills to current challenges.
