"Many people tell me that my approach of solution-focused therapy offers them an opportunity to quickly learn practical coping and problem-solving skills. This ultimately improves the quality of my clients' lives.  We each have our own strengths. Through participation in professional organizations, I can share valuable knowledge and learn in return. This means I have much more to offer my clients and their families."
