I was recently interviewed by the lovely and talented Nicole Lemaster for the “Coleyology” podcast, a program which focuses on consciousness, mental health, and holistic living.
In this lively, personal, and candid interview, Nicole and I discuss such things as focusing on therapy client strengths, framing problems, co-creating novel experiences, hoodoo, the paradox of trust, writing books, and humor in the therapy room. She was a delight to interact with and I really enjoyed our chat.

My latest book, Unlimited Resources: Simple and Easy Ways to Find, Access, and Utilize Client Strengths and Resources to Facilitate Change, is now available.
I wrote this book for psychotherapists who are interested in directing their therapy sessions toward a focus on client strengths and resources instead of an excessive focus on problem investigation and client pathology. I offer case studies, transcripts, and practical examples to give therapists and coaches simple methods for implementing resource directed ways of working.

This episode features an interview with world renown psychotherapist, author, and speaker: Bill O’Hanlon. A former direct student of Dr. Milton Erickson, he has gone on to develop his own therapeutic applications for client change: Solution-Oriented Therapy and Possibility Therapy.

In this interview he details his unique approach to working with clients, how he came to be a therapist, the necessity of focusing on client strengths and resources, the challenges of the early days of advocating for potential instead of pathology, and his appearance on OPRAH. He even blesses us with a quick song at the end of the interview! Bill is a wealth of information about the field of brief therapy and any time listening to him is time well spent.
