My name is Stephen and I’m glad you’ve stopped see what’s here at Highly Motivated Life. I’ve set out to establish a unique therapy practice that is inclusive for all, and offers cannabis-assisted psychotherapy.

In my professional life I am a licensed psychotherapist and substance abuse counselor. I have been providing individual counseling and recovery assistance to people for over ten years and I LOVE what I do! I worked in community mental health for over a decade and am now practicing on my own.

What sets me apart is my approach to cannabis and counseling. I believe that cannabis can help many patients reach their potential and help patients integrate its use into evidence-based approaches such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and even Trauma-informed approaches.

I am a cannabis-friendly counselor and I want work with individuals to unlock their potential through psychotherapy with or without cannabis. Whether you’re looking to enhance your understanding of how counseling works, or want to know if cannabis can help you on your journeys, check out my content or reach out to me with any questions.

This website is going to be a portal for all my creations. I may write a bit about what’s on my mind for my blog here. On my Youtube channel, I plan to showcase my cannabis grows and record some videos about my counseling experiences and how they can help you. I’m also planning a podcast, but I’m not sure what that’s going to be about just yet.

Whatever brought you here, I hope I’ve piqued your interest. Check back often and please like, follow, and subscribe on my socials. Be well and Stay Lifted!
