Hello, I'm Kingsley Grant.
Having worked with over 5,000 clients in family, individual, and group sessions, I’ve been privileged to assist the majority of these clients in achieving their goals through therapy, not to mention how much I’ve learned personally and professionally.
It wasn’t always that way.
During the early years of my practice, I didn’t have the confidence I now have. I would often wonder if I was being helpful to my clients. I felt like it was my responsibility to make sure they leave my office with the solution to their problems.
This was a huge burden for me until …
... until I realize it wasn’t about me, but all about my clients. They were the ones who were the experts on their own lives. And they were the ones who had to go back into their world and live out what was constructed in the session.
This freed me up to be more present with them and through great questions, get them their best hope outcome. Having had counseling myself, I know the value of it. Many times it’s simply having someone help us see what we aren’t seeing, hear what we are not hearing, and understand what we aren’t, that makes all the difference.
What also works for me is that I've been married to the same person for more than 30 years and have been blessed with two wonderful children who are now adults.
I’ve learned from a lot of mistakes I made as a parent, husband, and therapist. Most of these mistakes came in the form of poor communication, poor listening, and wanting a quick fix to the issues.
I’m trained as a Marriage and Family Therapist and am licensed to practice in the State of Florida.
I personally advocate for finding solutions to the problems being faced rather than trying to look for the causes of the problem. Yes, it’s important to have an idea of causation, but at the end of the day, knowing what caused a problem doesn’t fix a problem. What fixes a problem is finding a solution and putting the work in to achieve your goal.
The two approaches I use most often are Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Solution Focused Brief Therapy.
