The Unlicensed Counselor

The Unlicensed Counselor takes on real world challenges with practical advice. In the often woke world of counseling, Steve takes his 20 years of insider knowledge from counseling graduate school, working in a high-end treatment center, starting multiple businesses in behavioral health, and launching one of the most prominent nonprofits in Arizona. Buckle up, this podcast will not be kind to an industry that has hid behind insurance and lack of outcomes for too long. The Unlicensed Counselor will answer questions from listeners who want clear answers to problems they face today. Behavioral Health has become an echo chamber of talking, time for a new voice. Time for solution focused counseling.
