Written by S.Y. on Jul 18, 2020 after counseling with Fran for 3 months on issues concerning relationship issues, and coping with life changes

Fran’s therapy style is marked by frankness, humor and empathy. This suits my personality type which requires provocative no-nonsense feedback. She has led me on a thought provoking journey of getting real about “fact -vs-fiction” and discovering “why?” This has opened the possibilities to assess remedies for emotional relief, surrendering things I cannot change and focusing in earnest on the things that I can!

She is great. Respects when I need space and is great. Thank you.

Professional, in-tune to what you need to hear to help you upgrade your thinking, and provides clear strategies to help improve your life.

Fran has been a great listener and compassionately points out areas for me to work on. I appreciate her help immensely.

I was skeptical of counseling at first, especially because social work wasn't something I had considered as connected to mental health. However, I kept with it, and saw Duane offered great deal of concern and understanding.

Francine is a therapist with patience and kindness. She offers great advice and guidance. It may not always be what you want to hear but its what you NEED to hear. It has only been a few weeks that I have been communicating with her and I already see a difference in myself and how I'm processing my issues. Any way I can show my gratitude, I will!

Francine is wonderful at knowing what to say. She can read your mood and is very good at steering you to a better place.
