About me

If you're reaching out to a therapist, you're needing something better in your life. 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. For couples, 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 also see many individuals, as well as families.

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 wonderful to talk to. She keeps me on topic and really listens. My favorite thing about Frances is the incredibly wise feedback she gives. She helped me reconnect with my husband and saved my marriage!

Written on Aug 23, 2022 after therapy with Frances for 4 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, intimacy-related issues, and self esteem

Frances is a fantastic therapist, who is understanding, affirming, and deeply knowledgeable about the subject matter, especially when it comes to relationships. It's rare to have someone as well versed/trained in the Gottman Institute, attachment styles, and other important relationship information, but Frances brings that expertise to Betterhelp and utilizes it to great effect. Highly recommend.
