How This Single Question Can CHANGE THERAPY

One of the most important aspects of practicing Solution Focused Brief Therapy really, really well is understanding the power of third party perspectives.

Hateful Words Harm Everyone, Even the User!

Today I want to talk to you about the power of words, and how important it is for us to use words [in a way] that's good for us. Let me explain. The other day, I was watching a football game.

Early in the game he fumbled, which means he dropped the ball and the other team [...]

How Hip-Hop Inspired Me to be Authentic

This year, 2023, August specifically, is celebrated as the 50 years of hip hop. And I wanna talk about how hip hop has influenced Solution Focused Brief Therapy, and how hip hop has influenced me, and the culture of hip hop. I wanna start by saying how honored I was. I got to participate in an iHeartRadio event honoring the 50 years of hip hop celebration. And for me, it was one of the greatest privileges I've [...]
