Hi, my name is Raylene Franklin. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and a Licensed Addiction Counselor in Montana. I have experience working with troubled teens, chemical dependency, developmentally disabled, mental illness including depression and anxiety, physically handicapped, and hospice (end of life) care. I have learned in my 15 plus years of professional experience that life can sure throw us some curve balls, some being more difficult to navigate than others. Over the last four years I have been working as a life coach, helping people transition through their personal struggles and regain the confidence to reclaim their life.
My style is person centered and easy going. I like to think of myself as a coach who enjoys meeting people where they are at and helping them navigate through whatever challenge they are facing. I take a solution focused approach. I have been trained in Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) and am a certified Clinical Anxiety Treatment Professional (CCATP).
I enjoy getting to know each client as an individual who is experiencing a unique time in their lives and I look forward to working with you.

Raylene is great and I trust her completely. We haven't known each other long enough to get into anything too deep, but I am looking forward to it when we can. It's great as a male to have a female who you can trust's perspective.

Raylene will accommodate you anyway she possibly can. She tries to work with you and your schedule, and understands how important your time with her is. Very calm, kind and level headed during my sessions and doesn't mind the voice message spam I give her from time to time. Shes freaking awesome and that's an understatement. Recommended 110%
