Treating People Well

I think one of the best parts of the Solution Focused Approach and what makes the Solution Focused Approach so dynamic and so impactful on a client's life, is that we get to decide how we're going to treat our clients even before we've met them. Now, if you think about this, this is a very powerful concept that I think actually is true and important and powerful, even outside of the therapy room that we get [...]

The Power of an Open Heart

So there's this, there's a saying that says, if you want to go fast, go alone. But if you want to go far go together. And to be honest with you, I have always struggled with that saying.

Expertise Shouldn’t Be Taboo In Our Field

In a lot of ways my career started as the pursuit of clarity. I remember meeting Dr. Adam Froerer in Malmo, Sweden at a conference being hosted there.

Deploying Hope Through Our Questions

This past weekend, I went to Chicago, Illinois. I was doing a lecture at a conference, but I always love going to Chicago because that's the city where I was born. So there's a lot of nostalgia there for me. And I often go to like the first house I remember living in as a young, young, young person. I also love going there because my mother lives in Chicago and I was able to go spend [...]
