I am Steve Patterson. I work with individuals on a variety of issues from substance recovery, to getting through challenges, to developing a personal path of spirituality and self-care without the frufru.
I am certified in both clinical recovery and counseling for substance abuse, have nearly 20 years in experience in indigenous traditions of northern and western Europe and their approach to spirituality, as well as a life coach. The latter oddly nicely sums up the collect total of all the others "above" it.
Regardless of how they come, most people I have worked with leave with a different understanding of their life, reality, and ultimately check in from time to time, sometimes years apart, to "mention that time we talked about," or "Something happened today that made me thing of our time together." That, and the fact that I love my work, is why I do it.
