Personal Power

We each have the ability to control our own thoughts, feelings, and behaviors…but not those of others. By focusing on ourselves and what we are able to control, we become stronger and more aware of our own personal power.

Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT)

We use a brief, strengths-based approach called solution-focused brief therapy. Clients are viewed as the experts of their lives, capable of identifying both helpful and harmful ways of coping with difficult situations in the past.
