  • People say my style is different from other counselors. Steven I Lanzet

    “He’s not the kind of counselor who just sits back and says uh-huh every few minutes.”

    I am not shy about giving feedback and responding to my clients. Counseling is a relationship and I strive to create an engaging and healing dialogue from the beginning. Whatever your issue is, if it’s not getting better with what you have been doing so far, now is the time to seek assistance.

    My clients often say they started to feel hopeful in the first session. I think I know why. When my clients finally decide to go to a counselor and share secrets they thought they would never tell to anyone, having an experienced, confident, accepting, understanding, and knowledgeable counselor usually makes things better from the beginning. Seeing a counselor with decades of experience who has had great success in helping make recovery happen is so comforting.

    I am honored by the trust clients place in me when they share things they vowed they would keep secret forever. When dealing with the addictions of alcohol, drugs, sex, and other mental health issues, it’s a relief to move from shame and guilt with a plan that makes sense. 

    I hope you will give yourself the chance to make this happen for you and your loved ones. Call me to discuss your concerns and you can decide if I am the right resource for you.
