Michael Steinweg, LCSW

Michael Steinweg is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in California who has been practicing since 1997. He has a BA in Psychology from Arizona State University, an MSW from San Diego State University, and an MSTOM from Pacific College of Oriental Medicine. Mike has a curious and compassionate perspective geared toward helping clients gain a greater sense of control and satisfaction in their lives, without judgement. He is also a licensed holistic practitioner of traditional Chinese medicine. Mike has a great deal of experience working with teens and adults as well as couples and families. Over the years he has worked with clients struggling with depression, anxiety, trauma, relationship, and transitional issues, as well as mood disorders and parenting struggles. Mike’s underlying philosophy is primarily humanistic/existential, which tends to focus on the experience of the individual and working within their personal framework and context. He continues to be impressed by the resilience of people under trying circumstances and likes to focus on strengths and solutions while facilitating understanding and perspective, which can be hard to see clearly in times of stress. This shared journey is what has kept Him engaged and fulfilled over the last 30 years, and Mike continues to look forward to helping others struggling with difficult situations and emotions. Outside of work, Mike enjoys tennis, hiking, music, reading, and holistic medicine.
