Steve Shields, CMHC (Intern)

Steve started his personal recovery journey from intense sexual addiction in April of 2014. In working recovery, he saw a need for more people to open about their recovery process to spread hope. In January of 2016, he founded Unashamed Unafraid a non-profit organization that shares recovery stories, spreads hope, and creates scholarships for recovery resources. As Steve's desire to help others in recovery grew, he moved to become a full-time therapist and started at LifeSTAR in January of 2020. His passion is to help those who struggle with addiction and trauma find hope and heal as he knows they can.
