Therapies

Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT)--This technique is focused on developing and achieving a person's vision of a solutions. A priority of SFBT is to have people highlight and develop inherent strengths and use these inherent strengths to address current problems. To help someone see a potential solution I may ask "Are there times when this had been less of a problem?" or "What did you (or others) do that was helpful?" We place emphasis on the solution instead of the problem.

Motivational Interviewing (MI)-- Motivational Interviewing focuses on exploring and resolving ambivalence and centers on motivational processes within the individual that facilitates change. MI is more akin to a conversation between people  where change is not imposed, but is discussed and evaluated so that it matches people's own values, wishes, and beliefs. This style of therapy has proven to be effective with a variety of problems.

Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART)--is a form of psychotherapy with roots in existing evidence-based therapies but shown to achieve benefits much more rapidly (usually within 1-5 sessions). Clients with depression, anxiety, panic attacks, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), substance abuse, sexual abuse and many other mental and physical conditions can experience remarkable benefits starting in the first session. ART is not hypnosis.
