I read the other reviews here in a state of shock, and with serious doubts about the veracity of the people involved.

Why?

Because I know Steve, and not one of the reviews sounded even a tiny bit like him. I then read them more carefully, and noted that in each case there was mention of an oppositional relationship (As in Steven took the other persons side, or simply chose not to condemn without evidence).

This made things clearer to me- since if I had to put it as succinctly as possible, my advice to you on selecting Steve as a mediator or as a therapist is very simple: if you 're telling the truth and really want the best outcome possible, He's your man.

Hands down, he is in fact the most impartial and trustworthy person working in family counselling and mediation today. Of course this means that you have tom come into the process willing to acknowledge when you're wrong, which is understandably difficult (and for some people impossible), but if an honestly good outcome is what you're after there is literally no one I would trust more, and I think it's far more likely that some folks are slandering his name because they just weren't happy with the truth than that Steven was rude, brusque, or unprofessional in any way.

Mr. Banks was assigned as my child's mediator in 2010 after his father took all our remaining money and sent our house into foreclosure before filing for divorce after thirty years of marriage to go live with a girlfriend he had just met on the Internet. During our marriage I was violently physically abused, as well as emotionally, verbally and economically. Our fifteen year old son, who was the focus of the mediation, fequently witnessed this violent abuse, most often late at night after his father had become very intoxicated. My therapist had advised me to stop having any contact what so ever with my child's father and tell the complete truth regarding the abuse. When I did so, Mr. Banks said, "Well you could be lying." I was speechless that a trained therapist could act so callous and inappropriate. It gets worse though. He refused to let my son describe the abuse and on my third trip back for more mediation, would not allow me to wait in a separate area upstairs away from my child's father who glares at me and has even stalked me on several occasions. Mr. Banks became incensed when I couldn't think of good things to say about my child's dad. After thirty years of torture my mind was understandable blank. He then used the recommendations of my two adult children, who are in great need of therapy themselves due to growing up in such a dysfunctional family where I was the "whipping boy"to decide that my seventeen year old should be forced to stay every weekend with his alcoholic father after ignoring the recommendation of my son.'s therapist, who believes his father is a psychopath. When I wrote a letter of complaint to the El Dorado Superior Court they wrote me back saying that Mr. Banks denied my allegations. So I am still fighting in court to get a restraining order. I had one briefly, but the judgebdidn't know my situation and vacated it. Since I am still being stalked, I will try again. It doesn't help that my child's father coerced him to lie under oath about the abusebhe witnessed. Just the factbthatbMr. Banksbcan't seem to tell the truth is enough reason to fire him and hopefully rescind his license.

Well I would have to say that Mr. Banks has some serious issues that he needs to deal with. I had a VERY bad encounter with Banks. To make a long story short I rolled my eyes at a statement my Ex made and Banks made me leave the room and continued on with my Ex. "BIAS" Steve Banks is Not a Mediator he is an instigator with serious control issues. Pray you never get this Jerk. Well I got this guy off My case by filing a complaint 30 minutes after the meeting with the California Board of Behavioral Sciences. I note the timing of the Complaint to show that my complaint had nothing to do with his report but his Behavior.
here is a link to the Boards site.
