The Questions Method: The Language of the Solution Focused Approach

Thank you for visiting my website! Here you will find access to my training materials related to this approach as well as my blog, videos, my speaking schedule, free webinars and much more.

The Solution Focused Approach is challenging to master, and doing so requires practice as well as an intentional focus on the question process. Not just the questions, but the process. Hence, why I refer to solution focused brief therapy as The Questions Method.

If you haven’t done so already, please join my email list, as that is the best way to keep up with my announcements as well as getting access to the free resources I often release related to solution focused brief therapy. Not to mention my monthly newsletter which is perhaps the best way to keep up with the global SFBT community.

My goal for this site is to create a place where those interested in the Solution Focused Approach will be able to always access materials that will help you master The Questions Method.

One last thing: I love hearing from people who have enjoyed what I have shared, so please feel free to email me or find me on my social media sites.


“My greatest passions are to bring awareness to the efficacy of the Solution Focused Approach through research, train clinicians and other professionals to effectively implement this approach in their work, and to demonstrate that this approach has dynamic implications in couples therapy.”
