Steven Butler, M.Ed., LCT, CCC 

The Big Friendly Therapist, aka the BFT

It's a pleasure to meet you.

I provide services to folks 16+ through a non-judgemental, relaxed, affirmative, queer centric, trauma-informed lens to care. 

Conveniently Located
in Uptown Saint John

Located in the heart of uptown Saint John, NB at 117 Carleton Street.


Paid street parking is available (meter or HotSpot app). At this time, the building is not accessible. If the lack of accessibility is a barrier for you receiving services, I can offer services virtually over Zoom for Healthcare or OWL Video. Please inquire to learn more.

My Commitment to You

Whether you're dealing with coming out, identity/sexual exploration, traumatic experiences, or other mental health issues, I'm here to provide guidance and therapeutic support. My goal is to empower you to embrace your true self and live a fulfilling life.


No matter where you are on your path, know that you're not alone. Take the first step towards a brighter tomorrow by reaching out today. Let's embark on this transformative journey together.


Safe Space

Every single one of us is entitled to work, heal, or relax in a safe space. A space free of discrimination or fear; a space, free of bullying and harassment of any kind. I vow to make my practice a safe space for everyone - regardless of race, socio-economic status, ability, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression.

Land Acknowledgement

The City of Saint John/Menaquesk is situated in the traditional territory of the Wolastoqiyik. I respectfully share that I live and practice as a guest on the unsurrendered and unceded Traditional lands of Wolastoqiyik. I am committed to Piluwitahasuwawsuwakon (a Wolastoqey phrase that advocates for actions toward Truth and Reconciliation) as I engage and work with Indigenous peoples.
