steve braun coaching & counselling

Do you want to just sit around and talk about your problems, or do you want to do something about them?  

Life can get difficult and overwhelming but not every issue requires digging up your past. When seeking a solution, getting lost in the details isn't always helpful. You want results, not a narrative about how or why things became the way they are.

Blending our high performance coaching programs with solution-focused brief therapy (SFBT) you can minimize the time spent in therapy and, more importantly, the time spent struggling or suffering. 

We appreciate how valuable your time and money are. Let us help to change the trajectory of your life and get you back to a higher form of functioning that much sooner.

To change who you are, you need to become who you are.  Guiding people in transforming their lives is my greatest passion. With over a decade of experience in the field of mental health and addiction, I have helped hundreds of individuals at various stages of change and recovery.

If you aren’t where you want to be in your life, if you’re feeling stuck, lacking purpose, direction or fulfillment-let’s talk!  I am an instigator of change and have the experience to help you achieve the results you want.

Each one of us is a decision away from living the life we have always wanted. Each challenge and obstacle that we face along our journey holds within it the motivation to grow and evolve our mind, body, and spirit. I help individuals harness that motivation to heal, grow, and flourish.

I thought my past beliefs would forever define who I was and what I would become. I flipped the script and now specialize in helping people change the narrative of their life.
