Professional statement

Steven Wolbeck is a licensed clinical social worker in Plainview Long Island who works with individuals who are between the age of 25 years and up as well as young adults between the ages of 18-24 years old. Many of his clients have found much success in careers and academics but struggle to feel connected in their relationships, deal with perfectionism, excessive worry or not finding pleasure in things that used to bring them pleasure. Steven provides scientifically proven interventions that will provide knowledge, skills and clarity of purpose. Steven will also cheer you on and at times challenge you to work deeper.

Steven's approach is rooted in Dialectical Behavior Therapy that focuses on how your emotions and thoughts are affecting behavior so that targeted changes can be made. Steven's approach will work to uncover past conflicts that can be placed in a more positive framework. Steven also works from a holistic perspective and views people with three parts, body, mind and spirit. He will incorporate meditation and faith based interventions as well as improving dietary habits in conjunction with physical activities. He understand that stress is stored in the body and healing comes from greater awareness of internal stress.

Steven is focused on seeing his clients see real progress through a therapeutic style that is non judgmental, compassionate and encouraging. He completed a social work degree at Fordham University, engaged in psychodynamic studies at the Advanced Center for Psychotherapy. Steven engaged in training and group training in Dialectical Behavior Therapy and has done faith based studies.


Message to clients

In my years of training and expereince as a psychotherapist it has been become clear to me that people have an innate ability to change and become self actuated. There is power in the inner self that will act as a guide in the process growth. Through mindfulnes, meditation and faith based approaches the power within is able to guide your reparative process, place you in better situations and reparative relationships. A body, mind and spirit approach to personal development and growth ensures the development of the inner self which will stimulate new discoveries about parts of yourself which are over protecting the self and causing emotional distress This new awareness of these protective parts can then be better understood and released so that you will exoperience less distractions, more peace and an ability to make decisions with clarity of mind so that you can live a life that is well worth living.
