My Approach to Helping

Hello, my name is Steven Wolbeck, LCSW, and my approach is walking beside people using insight, contemporary psychoanalysis, dialectical behavior therapy, cognitive behavior therapy and faith-based interventions. My specialties are characterized in three main areas: anxiety, emotional disturbance, and spirituality in an eclectic framework to cultivate a match between personal needs and interventions that work.

I use holistic strategies that include mindfulness, meditation, insight, and faith-based approaches. There is scientific evidence that these approaches help identify core issues resulting from emotional or personal problems. Strategies can then develop to immediately help to resolve the main issues of concern made by the client. Emotional balance and harmony with oneself is a reachable goal that is in sight and can be maintained.

I work with adults of all ages who are seeking assistance with anxiety, depression, life transitions, personal development, and trauma. I am most comfortable walking beside people who present with these conditions and are seeking counseling of their own volition. Counseling is a personal journey that works best when chosen by the individual who is seeking treatment.

I believe the foundation for healing and personal growth rest on compassionate listening, mutual respect, and clinically significant interventions. I can be your best cheerleader but also one to point out areas in your life where your needs were not met and positive actions you can take to foster change. I believe in walking beside my clients not as an expert but as one who can share their burdens and encourage them to develop and live a life that is worth living.

I became a therapist later in life as a result of the therapeutic relationship that provided healing and helped me develop new ways to express myself with confidence. I have always had a passion for helping people and understand that seeking counseling takes a lot of courage.

The first session will encompass active and compassionate listening to put my client at ease. Questions around why the individual is seeking therapy at this time, his or her experience with previous therapy if they have this experience. I want to know how they have coped with the conditions they are presenting in their natural day-to-day life which has been helpful. I want to know how the client views themself or how they can describe themselves to me. In addition, what makes life worth living for them is discussed. Then I will inquire about past relationships, family dynamics when growing up, and if there were any traumatic experiences in their life. I will assess the client for symptomology of depression and anxiety. Finally, based on the information I gather, I provide the client with information on the treatment process to the client. I then leave time for questions and seek an understanding of what the intake process was like for them.
