I wanted to take this time to introduce myself to you and tell you somethings about by clinical approach and background. In 2010 I received my Masters in Mental Health Counseling from University of Phoenix located in Salt Lake City Utah and returned to Montana shortly thereafter. In my professional career I have worked with a wide range of ages from three years old to eighty-three while working in outpatient, in patient clinics as well as doing therapy in the local detention center.
When working with clients I draw from a large range of person-centered modalities with the underling modality being Brief Solution Focused therapy. What draws me to this modality above all others is the alignment of core belief of the client is their own expert in their life the therapist is just a expert in the process of getting the answers the client is unable to find. Other components of Brief Solution Focused Therapy that I find congruent with my therapeutic beliefs are that the interventions are both focused on seeking positive solutions to the issues as well as building upon clients existing strengths rather than focusing on perceived failures negative aspects of clients life. This is important because all too often focusing on negative will bring more negative issues rather then building upon the strengths.
It is also important to note that the therapeutic relationship is the utmost importance between a therapist and a client. Research as shown that as long as the clinician is utilizing researched based clinical modalities in their therapeutic practice, clinical outcomes are fairly similar. What is the most telling component in experiencing positive clinical outcomes from the therapeutic process is the relationship between the therapist and client. This also means that not all clinicians meet the needs of their clients and if this is the case then it is the duty of the therapist to find a more suitable clinician for the client.
I look forward to working with you
