About me

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.

Dr. Francis is knowledgeable and provides care with compassion. I like the fact that he has a degree in Theology because my core values are based on God’s word.
I will definitely recommend him.

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.
