Individual Psychotherapy, Couple and Parent Counseling

Ron Steck, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Direct, practical, humorous and insightful--My clients walk out of sessions with me feeling understood, really seen, smarter about themselves and their situation, and with real tools to positively affect their issues.

I try to work at two levels with clients: the present here-and-now where we can impact behaviors, and the foundation of how we define ourselves and others that is often rooted in the experiences of the past. Both are often required to make any lasting changes and develop new approaches to the challenges we face.

The way I work is shaped by the kinds of issues, needs, or preferences clients might have. Common methods include feeling recognition and articulation, pattern recognition, experiential exercises, consultative and collaborate conversations, as well as coaching in how people think about or approach issues.

I bring depth and range from my experiences in the mental health field, teaching, and consultation to every interaction.  I'm understanding, respectful, and able to be direct when appropriate to facilitate change. I love the work, and greatly honor the trust and intimacy the therapeutic relationship requires.
