Steven Stranberg Kassof, a licensed independent clinical social worker, has joined the Behavioral Health Departments at Essentia Health’s clinics in Superior and Ashland, Wisconsin. Kassof will provide counseling services for children and adolescents.

“I chose this opportunity because I was looking to bring more children’s services to my own community in Ashland,” explains Kassof. “I was impressed with Essentia Health’s children’s programming, and I wanted to be associated with the structured planning for our kids’ mental health needs that I saw here.”

Kassof earned a master’s degree in social work at the University of Minnesota Duluth in Duluth, Minnesota.

“People have confided in me since I was young, and I think it is a skill that I sharpened once I took this path,” explains Kassof. “I want people to know that when you choose to visit or bring your child to my office, you will be heard. Your story is important.”

To make an appointment with Kassof, talk to your child’s primary care provider about a referral. To see his full profile, visit and click on “Find a Doctor or Provider.”
