Question regarding motivation to change

I am working with a 19 year old client who seems to be tottering between the phases of acceptance and personal action in regard to his stuttering. He attends therapy regularly but does not seem particularly motivated to do assignments or in clinic tasks asked of him. How should I as a therapist approach this situation without pushing him past the point where therapy can be productive but still get progress out of him?
