how I work: Solution Focused Brief Therapy
My work is all about you reaching your goals, replacing your problems with your best hopes using Solution Focused Brief Therapy, (SFBT) a practice that is characterized by respect, curiosity, and hard work done in the form of conversations. SFBT has been shown to be as effective as other therapies, but in less time.
Our conversations will get you seeing clearly what your preferred outcome form therapy is. You will come up with details to help you recognize exactly what you want to have happening in your life, what it will mean for you to have it and the strengths, talents and resources that will use to help you get it, in a way that's right for you.
Each session should be complete in and of itself, and you should leave each session feeling that your time was well spent. The process takes only as many sessions as are useful to you, no more. If you feel we have worked well together, you are welcome to schedule any available appointment whenever you see fit.
What's different about MARRIAGE AND FAMILY THERAPists?
As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, (LMFT ) I am specifically trained to work with couples, families and groups, as well as individuals. LMFTs are the only group of mental health practitioners whose license requires them to be thoroughly trained, (including extensive clinical supervision and mentoring), to work with more than one person in the room, to think systemically, and to help you achieve your goals using brief, effective, evidence based short-term therapy.

Here's some unsolicited feedback:
I really appreciate you working on what I want to work on (not delving into my past uninvited like other therapists have done), and for giving me concrete suggestions that actually work.
