In this interview with Lucy Cordts, the Director of Behavioral Health, she shares what she is most proud of within her organization and her experience with Solution-Focused training. Crescentcare is a unique organization that provides a broad range of integrated care from frontline primary care providers to a full range of mental health services. They are especially proud of their work providing high-quality care to the transgender and gender non-conforming population. They have found Solution-Focused Brief Therapy and Practices a safe, trauma-informed approach that can help engage clients who have experienced significant adversity and complex trauma.
