She really takes the time to listen to me and what I’m going through. I like that she tells me the truth and not what I want to hear. I feel like I’m able to grow from her treatment. I recommend her as a therapist :)

Frankie is kind, caring and interested in what you have to say. She asks good questions that I’ve found get me thinking deeper about a statement I may have said offhand. I really appreciate working with her!

I had one session with Frankie and it was honestly so so so helpful. Frankie worked with me to talk through what I was going through and helped me frame new ways of thinking about what I was going through. It also really helped me when Frankie talked about having similar experiences to me. I really recommend Frankie for anyone looking for short term or long term therapy!
