This article provides a commentary on the article by Cepeda and Davenport (2006) that proposes an integration of solution-focused and person-centered therapy. The commonalities of each approach are highlighted as well as the differences. The primary argument of the article is that the process orientation of person-centered therapy may conflict with the goals of solution-focused therapy. Markers for identifying when each approach might be appropriate are identified and the implications for the therapeutic alliance of combining the two approaches are discussed.
