| "The challenges that
complicate our lives also give us opportunities to grow. Clients often
say our work together helped them achieve a level of inner peace,
strength, and emotional freedom that enables them to live life the way
they had always hoped." - Dr. John E. Northman
Dr. Northman is a leader in the
field of solution-focused treatment for individuals, couples, and
"Ipracticed solution-focused therapy, even before its recent
popularity. It is an effective way of helping people define themselves
and their relationships by issues other than their problems in as brief
a time as possible."
Dr. Northman is an authority on
child custody issues, coauthor of the American Psychological
Association's Child Custody Evaluation Guidelines, a trained
and a trained parent coordinator.
"A child's best interest should take precedence. When I was asked by
the American Psychological Association to participate in creating
national guidelines for psychologists who perform custody evaluations, I
wanted to be sure the child's needs were held in the highest esteem --
above and beyond pressures from parents, lawyers, and other therapists."
