My services are based in the Solution-Focused Therapy approach, this has
many benefits to my clients. The first is that this approach to therapy has
been demonstrated through research to achieve desired outcomes in fewer
sessions than most traditional approaches; this keeps the financial cost down
for my clients as therapeutic goals can be accomplished in just weeks instead
of many months. Another benefit is that little time is spent doing
lengthy and painful assessments, from the first session we will begin
developing strategies and plans that will lead towards a brighter and happier
My Areas of Specialty Include
a revolutionary approach to helping people to identify, create, and live the
kind of life they hope for.
What is revolutionary about SFT?
· Traditional therapies focus on
problems and often require years to fully investigate those problems.
Solution-Focused Therapy focuses on solutions and achieves results quickly.
· Traditional therapists often focus
on and struggle with client "resistance." Solution-Focused Therapists
do not encounter resistance in clients because this approach evokes strengths
rather than provoking fear.
· Traditional therapists try to catch
clients in the act of showing their symptoms and pathology through
"interventions." Solution-Focused Therapy evokes the client's innate
wisdom and intelligence.
· Traditional therapies focus on what
clients have been doing wrong and analyze the client's deficiencies.
Solution-Focused Therapy focuses on what clients have been doing right and
builds on that for permanent solutions.
