Want to solve an issue in a 6 or less sessions? Solution focused brief therapy may be for you! This kind of therapy really just looks at the main problem you wish to address and I'll help you achieve your goals of getting there.
This therapy approach is helpful in getting our thoughts, emotions, and behaviors back on one page. For instance, if I'm feeling low on my self-esteem, my motivation to exercise will be low and I'll be thinking bad about myself. Challenging the negative thoughts/emotions can help us see where we can improve to be and feel better.
