Francis is an amazing therapist. A great listener who always provides non-bias feedback. They create a safe space for critical thinking about life, habits, and anxieties, and everything in between. They always provide many different options and routines in order to help facilitate personal growth.

Francis has been excellent to work with. I initially started therapy after the loss of a close friend, but with his help, I've seen substantial improvements with managing stress and managing emotions in all aspects of my life. I have a better relationship with my wife and children because of it, and will be forever grateful for the help he's given me.
