Stephen Osika joins Positive Directions as a clinical intern. He is currently completing a Master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling with advanced training in Integration of Spirituality & Religion in Therapy at Fairfield University.
Stephen is passionate about helping others to cultivate life-meaning, self-knowledge, and resilience. He believes that radical compassion, objectivity, and a deep motivation to understand the uniqueness of each client and their challenges are the key to inspiring lasting change and growth. Stephen’s therapeutic style draws primarily from cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), existential therapy, Jungian analysis, and other forms of depth psychology. He believes that each individual is striving toward wholeness in their own way and tailors his approach to meet the specific needs of clients wherever they may be on that journey.
Stephen lives in Redding. In his free time, he enjoys hiking with his dogs, writing, cooking, and playing stringed instruments.
