"My approach to therapy changes with the client's needs and therapy setting. My preference is to focus on solving problems. That is, asking what needs to be different in the client's experiences. A client-focused approach strongly influences my work. I listen carefully to understand what is going on in clients' lives, not pushing for my solutions. I accept that the clients have come seeking solutions, and focus is most useful when helping to find solutions that work for them."
