Steph Sterling is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in New York City. She owns and operates Alternatives Counseling with her wife, Dr. Darcy Sterling where they see individual clients and couples. In addition to their practice, the two created and run Relationship Skills Boot Camp, an online course which teaches participants the skills necessary to drastically improve the relationships in their lives.

Steph received her Master’s Degree in Clinical Social Work from New York University in 2006.  Steph is certified in Imago Relationship Therapy and trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing).  She is a passionate and motivated therapist who utilizes her authentic self, youthful energy and various theories to keep the process engaging and transformative for each client who comes with their unique experience and life circumstances.  Steph offers practical tools and adaptive coping mechanisms that clients employ on a daily basis which maintains their growth and expands their potential.  Steph works primarily with young adults and adults who are extremely motivated either individually and/or in their relationships, but are stuck somewhere in the process.

Together, Steph and her clients are able to push through roadblocks and other obstacles creating a path that allows them to meet their present and future goals.

When Steph isn’t in session or running the behind-the-scenes business aspect of their practice or RSBC, you can be sure to find her either with her wife and/or their four animals or at her favorite CrossFit box.
