I strive to help my clients reach their treatment goal in the timeliest fashion possible. I focus whenever possible more on utilizing a person’s strength, finding solutions and reinforcing the things that are already going well in a person’s life rather than emphasizing the problem.
However, I don’t delude myself into thinking that I have all the answers and strive toward helping my clients find their own solutions that best fit them, their significant others and their families.
I don’t believe in providing more treatment than necessary, but still enough so that my clients can reach a place where they feel competent and hopeful about the changes they wish to make in their lives.
I view it as my duty to work side by side with my clients and support them in detecting solutions with them, instead of for them.
