What is Brief Therapy?

Brief Therapy is a type of psychotherapy that utilizes clients' strengths and resources to help them effectively identify and resolve situations. Using Brief Therapy, Dr. Stulberg helps clients set attainable goals to find solutions to their problems now, and in the future.

With the help of Dr. Stulberg and the Birmingham Family Therapy Clinic, you'll learn to:

  • Expand problem solving possibilities
  • Attempt new behaviors
  • Increase self-confidence
  • Believe in yourself, your abilities, and your dreams

Innovative Techniques

Dr. Stulberg and her staff use innovative techniques that accelerate healing from individual struggles and relationship problems to family issues and marital conflict, but that's not all, you'll also learn to:

  • Resolve conflicts, not repeat them
  • Achieve honest, respectful two-way communication that actually prevents arguments
  • Improve interaction with others
  • Bring balance back into relationships with family, friends, employees, and employers
  • Build intimacy without sacrificing your own identity
  • Replace resentment with respect, so arguments give way to caring conversations, resolved problems, and truly intimate relationships
  • Clear past issues that affect the present

Brief therapists often assign "homework" so clients use their vast strengths to resolve issues outside of therapy while fine tuning those skills learned in therapy sessions. Working in this way allows our sessions to be more effective and efficient for clients.

Can Brief Therapy Help My Marriage?

At the Birmingham Family Therapy Clinic, most clients report feeling more control over their situation after just one session. The average length of treatment is less than 6 months, and often our clients resolve their problems in less than 10 sessions.

Can Brief Therapy Help My Family?

Brief Family Therapy gives you the tools to provide support, love and safety for your family members. When your family is facing life's critical challenges, family members may need help to avoid or reverse destructive patterns. Brief Family Therapy addresses these challenges - separation, divorce, fighting and communication difficulties, financial hardships, additions or losses in family membership, violence, grief, illness, addiction and lifestyle issues.
