Welcome. My name is Steve Kempster and I am an interactive, strengths-based therapist focused on supporting people through difficult situations. When life becomes challenging, we can get stuck in emotional ruts and destructive thought patterns. If you’re there, you don’t need to take this on alone. I walk alongside my clients to help you get your footing and find a path moving forward.
My approach is relational and empathetic. I will meet you with warmth and curiosity, genuineness and authenticity–connecting with you where you are. I am easily relatable and work well with people from all walks of life, especially those who are new to therapy.
Reach out to share what you are experiencing and see if I am a good fit. I would love to hear from you by cell: (916) 436-1761 or email: kempsterlcsw@gmail.com. For more information, visit my website at www.brightspotcounseling.com.
All the best,
Steve Kempster
