About Steven

The thing I love most in the world is to learn and to teach others to learn how to learn. And I am good at bringing out the best in students. I have many years of experience as a university professor and administrator. And I have helped students at every level.

I began my career as an Academic Philosopher receiving my Ph.D. from Penn State University. And I began teaching at a small New England College. My interest in Ancient and Contemporary philosophic practices led me to study Psychoanalysis in London, England under the world famous Existential Psychoanalyst R.D. Laing. I founded the first MA Program in Humanistic Counseling and Psychotherapy in the U.K. at Antioch University, London.

I tutored adult learners in the skills they would need to succeed in higher education. I also founded and directed the University of Maryland’s Study in London Program. Later in my career, I founded, and for 15 years was the chairman, the London branch of the Institute for Management Studies, an educational program for corporate senior managers.

I returned to the US and taught for six years at an online university. And I currently work as a therapist and a licensed counselor in Phoenix, Arizona. I have written extensively for academic journals and books. And I have lectured on Philosophy, Psychoanalysis, Counseling and Coaching.

I have a vast amount of experience helping college age and adult learners to learn how to learn and especially how to use language properly. And I work to bring out the best in each and every student and put the student first. Students are welcome to contact me and let me coach, counsel, and tutor.
