Focus Area: Clinical Social Work

Licensed in: Oregon, Washington

When working with clients I usually start off using solution-focused brief therapy especially when creating the treatment plan. Solution-focused brief therapy (SFBT) is a future-oriented, goal-directed approach to solving human problems of living. The focus is on the client’s health rather than the problem(s), on strengths rather than weaknesses or deficits, and on skills, resources and coping abilities that would help in reaching future goals.

About Me
