"Steve's knowledge of the human psyche is matched only by his kindness and desire to help. Truly one of the most caring, sweetest, strongest, smartest, funniest, most favorite people I have ever met in California. We didn't even know each other, and he saw me down one day and offered to help. I'll never forget it. So rare nowadays. He does this job because he IS this job. It's in his nature. Having been to all kinds of therapists, I can tell you that Steve is one of the few who truly cares. Plus he knows his stuff too."   - Brian S. "I've known Steve for ten years now. During that time, we worked for several summers as counselors at a summer camp for foster children. These children, shuffled from home to home, often carried great pain, and as a result have a profound need for, and yet resistance to, connection with others. I learned the depth of Steve's humanity, his empathic ability to connect, his genuine desire to make a difference, and his skill in affecting growth. Steve doesn't judge, but sees people's behaviors as coming from pain. I gained a deep, abiding respect for Steve's integrity, and his ability to see and nurture people's sometimes hidden strengths.  Most importantly, it's paramount to remember this was something Steve did as a volunteer!  Neither of us were paid.  Steve did what he did for these kids as an outpouring of his own heart.  That to me is the greatest indicator of the man.  Helping others isn't just a job to him.  It's a life-calling...And he's an amazing example of how it's done."           - D.R.
