We Work With Individuals, Couples, Families, & Groups
Solution-focused brief therapy is a goal-directed collaborative approach to psychotherapeutic change that is conducted through direct observation of clients’ responses to a series of precisely constructed questions.
Building on a strengths perspective and using a time-limited approach, solution-focused brief therapy is a treatment model in social work practice that holds a person accountable for solutions rather than responsible for problems.
It is used mostly to treat people of all ages and a variety of issues, including child behavioral problems, family dysfunction, domestic or child abuse, addiction, and relationship problems. SFBT is an evidence-based approach to psychotherapy, which has been studied since the early 1980s.

Frequently Asked Questions
Will my discussion with the counselor be confidential?
Isn’t it better for me to solve my own problems?
A counselor/therapist doesn’t solve your problems for you. Rather, he or she helps you clarify issues so you can solve problems on your own with a therapist’s guidance, support, and expertise. The goal of therapy is to make you more self-sufficient, not more dependent.
Why do people consider using therapy?
Therapy is a partnership between an individual and a professional who is trained to help people understand their feelings and assist them toward their patterns of behavior.
If I begin a therapy, what should I try to gain the most from it?
There are many approaches to therapy and various formats in which it may occur–including individual, group, and couples. Despite the variations, all therapy is a two-way process that works especially well when you and your therapist communicate openly. Research shows that the outcome of therapy is improved when the therapist and the client agree early-on about what the major problems are and how therapy can help.
