My therapeutic philosophy is firmly rooted in the belief that you know yourself best, and it is my passion as a therapist to provide you with the space to collaboratively explore as well as make meaning out of your own unique life experiences. I am dedicated to fostering an authentic and supportive relationship with my clients in order to promote awareness, empowerment and growth.
I have training and experience in working with trauma, anxiety, depression, OCD, mood disorders & eating disorders. My approach is versatile, integrative and individually tailored to my clients' unique goals. I utilize methodologies and techniques from Cognitive-Behavioral, Dialectical Behavioral, Narrative and Experiential Therapies, as well as mindfulness.
In my work, I have found that working from a strengths-based perspective and using humor is helpful in meeting my clients exactly where they are in this often daunting process, highlighting their resiliency and motivating them to continue working towards a more fulfilling life.

It was great having Francesca there for me. She gave me the confidence to move forward with my recovery and talk more about what was bothering me. I highly recommend her as a counselor.
So far Francesca has been helpful with helping me face my anxiety and providing me with tools to work through it. She is easy to talk to and I am thankful to have found Francesca and BetterHelp.
Francesca has done a wonderful job at letting me lay out my concerns without feeling pressured but also offering me insight into why I may feel that way. I am grateful that we seemed to click right away. I have always been uncomfortable about pursuing help and this has really put me at ease!
