As a trained Family Therapist I am expert at working with couples as well as families. My focus is on the relationship as much as on each individual. Each person has their own unique view of the relationship, why it began, how it has evolved and what is causing any degree of unhappiness or dissatisfaction in the present.
Relationships falter for many reasons, such as:
1. Lack of emotional honesty,
2. Loss of respect of each other,
3. Loss of trust in each other,
4. Failure to accept one another, but instead attempts to change one another,
5. Poor communication of disappointments in a timely fashion,
7. Significantly different long terms goals,
8. A lack of reciprocity,
9. Failure to share how each is changing and developing,
10. Lack of passion,
There maybe more, but these seem to be arise frequently or in combination. While these relationship problems are not always easy to fix, they are all fixable. And I have a many years experience in helping couples resolve these issues.

Stephen has been extremely helpful and accommodating.
Stephen has been very helpful and my spouse and my relationship have greatly improved as a result. He has years of experience and it shows. I have never tried counseling before and am glad to have his expertise and wisdom for my first counseling experience.
Steve is a very fine man and seems to have lots of experience in his field. In our case, we may have reached a point beyond return, so it was tough to help us. Thanks!
This was my first session with Stepehen or any Counsler. I originally didn’t believe in therapy or talking to someone. After my first session I feel so much better and I just appreciate Stephen for figuring out the problem and issue within the first session and I am looking forward to working with him in the future!!! Thank you so much Stephen for making this experience so easy for me. Looking forward for our next session!
I like him a lot, and so far his advice had helped me.
Stephen is the counselor we should have found years ago. He is honest, direct and open. He helps us tremendously.
My husband and I have been attending therapy sessions with Stephen . He is a knowledgeable and understanding counsellor. He listens intently and often offer options and alternatives. I am begining to learn more about myself. Would definitely recommend him as a counselor.
Stephen Witte is a fantastic listener! Stephen's guidance and experience with couples helped me and my partner through a time of infidelity and deception. Our sessions with Stephen helped guide us to healthier communication and the road to forgiveness. We used video chats. But I chatted Stephen with messages a few times throughout the week, and his responses helped me through tough/anxious moments with his perspective and encouragement. He was truthful about the tragedy that had occurred in our relationship, yet offered supportive strategies and guidance for us to help us get through. I felt like I could speak at him for minutes and throw a bunch out there, but he had a great way of picking out the most important part of what I was trying to say. He did a great job facilitating the discussion that helped me clarify my thoughts and communicate with my partner. My partner and I had multiple sessions with Stephen and both felt very comfortable speaking to him. Thank you very much, Stephen, for being here for us.
Stephen is a godsend! He has knowledge, experience and insights that are second to none! His passion for helping couples is evident in his sessions and it makes for a fantastic start to whatever you are going through
He’s a good counselor and offers great advice.
