Steven W. DiMarzo, MBA, LMHC, NCC, CASAC-MC
Owner & Executive Director
Life comes with many challenges and obstacles that may seem impossible to overcome. We all have an innate need to succeed and prove ourselves as worthy and deserving of good. There may be times when we feel overwhelmed, self-conscious, or inadequate and we don’t want to be a burden to others, so we don’t ask for help. It’s at these times when we need that support most. The truth is, we all face these challenges and with some self-reflection, mental energy, and focus, we can overcome those barriers and develop skills to help ourselves that become second nature.
Steven is the founder, owner, and executive director of Second Nature Counseling. Steven founded Second Nature Counseling in 2018 as a response to the need for quality, accessible mental health care in the Central New York region. In 2019, Steven and Second Nature Counseling moved to Schenectady, New York, so he could be closer to family and expand the practice to reach the community’s needs.
Since then, Steven has worked to extend the reach of Second Nature Counseling to the Capital Region of New York, providing counseling services, consultation to local and regional organizations to assist in reducing team turnover, burnout & compassion fatigue, and to educate team members and leadership on the importance of wellness and mental health in the workplace. Steven also provides consulting services to fellow mental health professionals who are starting, growing, and scaling their own practices. Steven’s personal mission, and the mission of Second Nature Counseling, is to improve and expand the reach of mental health services as far as can possibly be reached.
