About Me

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.

Written by B.R. on Jun 15, 2019 after counseling with Francesca for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and eating disorders

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!
