Andrea Steen

Therapist

I'm Andrea Steen and I've been in social work for the last 19 years.  I'm a therapist that wants to work with you in promoting change for yourself by getting to the root issue of your situation. I work with teenagers that may have a difficult time finding their voice or adjusting to young adulthood. I also work with adults that may be having issues with anxiety, depression and other mental illnesses. I assist couples that may be having communication issues and/or struggles with infidelity. I can help couples with getting to the root of the problem by building trust and both parties starting to have fun again.
