About Steve

For more than 20 years, I’ve been striving to help people to do more than just survive during adversity and loss. I believe my approach takes the edge off of change and welcomes healing through listening, encouragement, and empowering insights. I have been trusted by community and non-profit companies, health care agencies, small to mid-sized businesses, schools, and churches to deliver keynote presentations, workshops, and group facilitating. My purpose is to equip you and your company: when people are at a loss, you won’t be.

Steve made an impressive impact as he engaged the audience and related to real business problems, we all experience. He made great points and gave relatable information about our theme. Steve is good at helping people reflect about my work, life, and on yourself. We need more classes like this! His keynote and workshops were very actionable
