A Brief Biography:
I am a Licensed General Psychotherapist, with over 18+ years experience in the treatment of a wide cross-section of Individuals, Families and Marital Couples with a variety of psychological difficulties.
My first introduction to the treatment of the family was as a Youth and Associate Minister of a large religious organization. This was followed by my work as a Family Psychotherapist at a large Drug Alcohol & Addiction Treatment Facility.
Further I worked with families in an Outpatient Treatment Setting providing treatment for marital discord, and various family difficulties. Of course, these were done in the collaboration with other medical practitioners such as Primary Care Physicians, Psychiatrist, and other clinicians of Dental, Cosmetic and Bariatric medicine.
In addition, a systems approach was adopted in the treatment
of families within an inpatient and long term care settings. Here various neuro-degenerative and medical complaints were treated for the psychological, psychiatric and social impact from these conditions.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Dr. Joida Francis. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with ReGain might be different.
Based on what I have experienced, Dr.Francis really understand my situation and concern about what ive been through and what i hope from sessions with him, and hes not only giving me advices but he also encouraging with thoughtful words. Thank You for helping me
My husband and I love Dr. Francis! He was more thorough, from the very first session, than any other therapist either of us has talked to. He is so flexible and adapts as we uncover different issues with each have.
I have had only 1session with Dr. Francis, but I was totally convinced of his expertise and experience.
Our 2nd session did not happen due to technical issues. He was there but we just couldn’t connect. Hope this will not be the case on Oct 1st my 2nd session.
