Dr Steve Stephens was the oldest of six kids. He grew up in the suburbs south of Portland, Oregon and had a positive, though far from perfect, childhood. His parents were hard-working people who were committed to their children. Early in his life, Steve developed a deep curiosity in how people think and relate to each other.
In 1984 Steve married his sweetheart, Tami. Was theirs a perfect marriage? They both say, like any marriage, they have
had their ups and downs, but they are both truly committed to each other just
like their parents (Tami's were married 49 years and Steve's were married 53
years). In 1988 Brittany was born, in 1990 Dylan, and in 1993
Dusty. Steve and his family love to laugh, play, explore, travel, ride bikes and
watch movies together.
