Struggling with your relationships or your moods?

Steve McCready

You may be having a hard time right now, but that doesn’t mean there’s anything wrong with you. We don’t automatically know how to be happy, healthy, and successful in our lives and relationships. We all struggle and get stuck or lost at times along the journey of life.

If you were never taught the right tools to manage stress and anxiety, have a happy relationship, or handle the other challenges life throws at all of us, it’s understandable that you’d struggle – it’s not that different from trying to play guitar when you’ve never taken any lessons!

Whether you label what I do counseling or therapy, the more important part is the outcome: better relationships and a happier life. Keep reading to learn more about how I can help you turn things around.

It’s not just a bunch of talking


Talking about your problems can help you have a better understanding of them, but that alone isn’t enough, so, therapy with me is more than just talk. I teach my clients concrete, practical tools and skills they need to overcome their struggles, improve their relationships, and create happier and more fulfilling lives.


Therapy is art and science – the science is in the techniques I use (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy are the primary modalities I work in), and the art is in identifying and applying the techniques that will work for you, your unique personality, goals, and learning style. I don’t do ‘one size fits all’ therapy, and my ability to adapt my approach to fit each client is one of my strengths as a therapist. Research has shown us that therapy works just as well when done via telephone or online as in person, and I’m comfortable working in whatever way you feel works best for you.
