About Me

If you're reaching out to a therapist, you're needing something better in your relationship. You're not willing to go on the way things are, and you have the hope and determination that things can and must change. You need someone who can help you achieve that change. You don't need someone who will just tell you what you want to hear, or who will listen but not know what to do. You need someone who has the ability to get you to that better place in your life.

I have the training, compassion, and experience to help you get there. I'm trained in Gottman Couples Therapy and Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy. These are two of the best-researched, most effective couples therapy methods out there, and I have seen beautiful results in my clients. I'm always amazed at the power that these methods have in many couples' lives.

I've also been there. I know what depression feels like, and I've struggled with a difficult marriage and divorce. I've been to therapy myself, learned a lot, done the work, and have gotten to my own better place. My passion and my reason for becoming a therapist is to help others benefit from what I've learned. My training has given me the skills to do that. I won't judge you, and you won't hear, "Well, just get over it!" from me.

If you want Christian counseling, let me know. If you prefer non-religious therapy, I am comfortable with that as well. Either way, you will have my full attention and my best effort.

Frances is very respectful and attentive, she has been able to understand root issues and connect patterns and cycles that help in identifying issues. I fee comfortable speaking with her which is very important.

Francis is GREAT! My wife and I really enjoy the perspective she’s able to give us both throughout each of our sessions with her.
