I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in New York State with over 25 years of clinical experience in behavioral health counseling. I’ve worked with individuals dealing with chemical dependency, mental health issues and co-occurring disorders.
Early in my career, I worked with juvenile and non-violent offenders to help them change their thoughts and actions. Today, I work with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, PTSD, OCD and ADHD. I help people who have experienced physical trauma and emotional abuse. I work with athletes to help them improve their sports performance and mental framework.
My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion without judgement or labels. I use various methods of therapy to help those meeting their challenges. My approaches combine cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, motivational and rational-emotive counseling. I use collaborative and systematic approaches to help my clients and those who are in their inner and intimate circles get the most out of therapy.
We can work together to develop your treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. You will find support and explore different ways of thinking and feeling through the help you can get from my services.
It takes tremendous courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.
Do you or someone you know use tobacco or smokes cigarettes and want to quit? I might be able to help. I am a Mayo Clinic trained tobacco treatment provider. I’d be happy to help those who are choosing good health through smoking cessation!
I look forward to working with you!

Recommended practical person can give you an idea of where the problem is located.
Fran has helped me sort through alot of my emotions. He has given me validation and a sense that I am not alone in my thinking. Messaging him has been easy and a fantastic way for me to vent without judgment. Even through a message I can tell how much he cares and I would recommend him to anyone!
I really like that Francis makes comments on the material I send in my daily journal. I know that he reads them, and then we are better able to communicate the issues I have encountered during the week.
