About Me

Hi! Thank you for taking the time to come on to my page and learn how I can help you. My name is Candace Franks. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, LPC, licensed in Georgia. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including; depression, anxiety, relationship issues, intimacy issues, career challenges, anger, and addictions. I have helped many clients who have experienced trauma to include abuse. I have worked with different communities to include; military, children & youth, young adults, LGBTQ, elderly, couples, and families coping with addiction.

At heart, I am an existential therapist. My focus will be on understanding the unique way that you interpret the world. I believe that by having a real, authentic relationship with my clients, I am able to help them find insight and meaning. My counseling style is warm and interactive. I will hold a deep respect and compassion for you. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral therapy, humanistic, psychodynamic and rational-emotive counseling. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique needs and goals.

I know that it takes courage to seek a happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. When you are ready, I am here.

I look forward to getting to know you.

My first session went well, but she did not bother to show up for the second one nor try to reach out or have someone else reach out to there being an issue. Not a good way to start therapy, in my opinion.

Candace is a great counsellor. Talking with her feels just like having a deep conversation with a friend. It’s very relaxed, and it always had me smiling! She taught me things about myself each time we spoke. She was very patient with me despite me cancelling our meetings constantly. I definitely recommend her.

Candace is amazing! She is very warm and understanding. She helped me overcome my challenges and build a plan on how to handle things in the future. I have grown so much and feel way more confident and calm. I understand better who I am, what I want and need. I’m very grateful for this time with her, best decision of my life!

Awesome therapist! Her warm approach to my challenges is so refreshing...I have been in therapy for over 5 years and she is just what I needed at this time. She is able to really get to the root of my challenges and help me look at and address things in a different way. I assure you if you are ready to work on your stuff or really want someone to guide you through difficult feelings etc. This is your therapist! 5 stars!

This is my first experience using BetterHelp. My counselor Candace has been very helpful. In just two sessions, Candace has helped me pinpoint one of my major obstacles to better understanding myself and what makes me tick. I am very impressed with her expertise and professionalism in guiding me to being a stronger person.

Work with me!
