My Approach to Helping

Seeking therapy is a testament to an individual's capacity for self-awareness and resilience. We can all benefit from an outside perspective to help us understand ourselves and live up to our potential. We may have blocks, blind spots, and self-destructive patterns that we struggle to move past. We may have unproductive ways of coping with stress or loneliness. We may look to relationships or accomplishments for a sense of worth, never quite feeling we are "good enough." In situations like these, I help my clients gain a deeper understanding of themselves and their nature, collaborating on ways to live a more fulfilling life.

My name is Steven Dente and I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) based in Reno, Nevada. I hold a Master of Arts (M.A.) degree in Counseling from the University of Nevada, Reno. I currently treat individuals and couples of all ages and across a broad spectrum of issues. I work from an "insight-oriented" or "depth" perspective, listening to both what is said and what is not said, so clients have the experience of being truly understood. I invite my clients to talk about anything on their mind: thoughts, feelings, life challenges, internal conflicts, dreams and fantasies. From here, clients have a clearer understanding of who they are and how they can be more effective in their lives. In addition, I have taught Counseling and Clinical Psychology classes at Sierra Nevada College.

Successful therapy begins with a trusting relationship. I provide space to work through the challenges we all face as human beings. Finding the right therapist is an important task. It is crucial that you feel seen, understood, supported, and challenged. If you feel that we would work well together, or if you have any questions, give me a call!
