About Me

Hello there!

I am glad we are "meeting!"

My priority is to help you get out of your problem as fast as possible and with lasting results.

I am a direct and dynamic therapist, and I do not beat around the bush or "just listen." While I am supportive and empathetic to your struggles, I believe in taking personal responsibility for change. I will not let you vent endlessly if that means staying in your misery longer. I believe that you possess the innate ability to adapt to difficult circumstances, and I will help you find your inner strength during challenging times.

I have a holistic approach to health and I keep in mind every angle of your well-being, including the social aspect, family of origin, cultural factors, creativity, spirituality, hobbies, career, leisure time, nutrition, and physical health. All need to find their balance for you to have the most fulfilling life.

I encourage you to start on the magnificent goal of improving your situation. With me on your side, you will be encouraged and supported in taking concrete actions. Together, we will map out a strategy to change your thought patterns, feelings, and quality of your relationships.

Please see more about me at I have over 30 years of advanced training and clinical work both in the US and Europe. English, Spanish, and Italian spoken. My extensive clinical experience has taught me a lot. Most importantly, it has taught me that you are not a hopeless case, so please stubbornly refuse to believe that even for a moment. I have helped countless people bloom under the most dire circumstances.

Depression, affairs, anxiety, addictions, trauma, codependency, communication difficulties, children's behaviors and other problems successfully treated. I also specialize in helping people create healthy relationships. I will help you quickly figure out if a relationship is worth saving or needing to get out of, and how to do just that!

I am looking forward to accompany you on this amazing journey.

You deserve to be happy! You are worth it.

Claudia Franzosi is helping me to identify some specific struggles I have with the extreme pressure I am under in my personal life and with high profile business issues and is helping me deal and work through my anxiety in an understanding and methodical way. I love being able to email back and forth while I'm focused on what I'm writing at the right time and also she gives specific guidance with really targeted advice that makes you think and process things. She asks questions which allows for you to express yourself in writing and think about what you are experiencing and why. She also checks in periodically which I really like because otherwise I might not think about how I am doing amongst a very hectic schedule. Thank you!

Claudia has been so helpful in my journey to a better self. I love having all of our messages saved so I can read back on them during times of struggle or reflection. She was quick to respond and gave me tips that I can incorporate into my everyday thinking, and many great resources. Direct, to the point, honest and authentic, with my best interest at heart. Highly recommend. Thank you Claudia!

Claudia forces you to look at yourself in ways that you may not want to but to see, the truth is it's helpful.

Written by E.V on Sep 03, 2015 after counseling with Claudia for 3 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship, family, and depression

Claudia has helped me in just days to feel better and understand my emotions than I was able to do in months by myself. She gets to the point and does not mess around. I enjoy working with her.

Written by D.A on Aug 13, 2015 after counseling with Claudia for 1 month

So far she has been amazing!

Written by M.I on Aug 08, 2015 after counseling with Claudia for 1 month

I just started this and from the messages we have sent she is helpful

Written by M.E on Aug 05, 2015 after counseling with Claudia for 3 weeks

Claudia really helped me through a hard time. She is straight forward and you have to be ready to hear and discuss some hard truths, at least in my case. In a short time she has definitely helped me gain perspective, get my act together and given me some useful tools to improve my life.

Claudia is great, she has been invaluable in dealing with several complex and stressful issues in my life while still balancing my own mental health. Not sure what I'd do without her services.

Claudia is an amazing person. She is really empathetic towards her counselees. She is strong and direct and gets straight to the point. Because of her directness she gets you to face yourself and get to the truth of things. She is also a great cheerleader when you are making progress. She has excellent advice and lets you know what you need to do to progress in getting healthy. I highly recommend Claudia Franzosi as a counselor to anyone who needs help. She will stick with you through whatever it is you need to go through....she is awesome !!

Dr. Franzosi is an amazing friend I can confide in. I forget sometimes she's a doctor. Dr. Franzosi took the time to get to know me and with that knows how to advise me and the best way to get me to understand all points of view of my situation. Even though I feel sometimes that I'm bothering her with my endless problems she makes me feel like it's not like that at all. She follows up and that shows that she cares. She has helped me so much. She truly is amazing.

Written by J.O on Jun 26, 2015 after counseling with Claudia for 2 days on issues concerning relationship, and trauma and abuse

Claudia is SO understanding, she provides constructive feedback in a way that is direct and easy to hear and understand. My boyfriend and I are going through serious trust issues and Claudia was able to level with me and get me to a place where I can forgive myself and be at peace with whatever happens in the future. Claudia is an amazing listener and actively comes up with strategies to correct unhealthy behavior and find solutions to tough problems. If you need a third party opinion on an issue emerging in a relationship and are determining the proper method of resolution going forward, Claudia is your woman!

Written by C.H on Jun 25, 2015 after counseling with Claudia for 3 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship, family, trauma and abuse, sleeping, self esteem, anger, career, bipolar, and depression

Claudia was very helpful and supportive when I was at my lowest. I reached out to betterhelp because I did not feel stable enough/ was too anxious to speak to a real professional face to face. she confirmed what I already knew, how serious my condition was and how desperately I needed help and encouraged me to reach out to family and get help.

this site would be a great alternative for people who cannot afford therapy or do not want to have to sit in an office and speak to someone about their issues. thankfully I do have insurance that covers a professional help so I will be continuing my work in person and not on this site.

thanks for everything. great concept, great execution. love the webinars too
