I have seen many therapists over the years and Dr. Franklin is the best! His insight has helped me tremendously. He is very kind, and he has a great sense of humor too. I feel heard, encouraged, and supported. He tunes into things I didn’t even realize I needed to speak about. I look forward to our sessions.
