Specific interests: worry, anxiety, sadness, depression, grief and bereavement, high achievement, dating and social bonds

Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), also called Solution-Focused Therapy (SFT) was developed by Steve de Shazer (1940-2005), and Insoo Kim Berg (1934-2007) in collaboration with their colleagues at the Milwaukee Brief Family Therapy Center beginning in the late 1970s. As the name suggests, SFBT is future-focused, goal-directed, and focuses on solutions, rather than on the problems that brought clients to seek therapy.
Narrative therapy is a style of therapy that helps people become—and embrace being—experts in their own lives. In narrative therapy, there is an emphasis on the stories that you develop and carry with you through your life.
