Hello and welcome to my page! It is often a very difficult thing to assist your teen with all of the curve balls life and culture can throw at them. Sometimes it is also difficult to determine if therapy would be the best option for your teen, however if you have found yourself here then you are on the right path to making the difference you would like to see for your teen. We fully understand that times are different and that more support is needed to care for our teens so let me be apart of the village to offer the help you may be seeking.
I attained my Master's degree in counseling from Webster University in the greater Jacksonville area and I am now a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in the state of Florida. I have just under five years counseling experience but I have been a parent educator for the last eight years helping to bridge the gap between parents and their children.
My areas of focus include anxiety, depression, anger management and self-esteem and/or self-image concerns.
My counseling style with teens is very warm, supportive and safe. My counseling style includes Cognitive-Behavior and Solution- Focused Therapy which I feel opens the door for more dialog so that we can get to the root of the issues your teen may be experiencing. It is my hopes that I am able to partner with you and your teen to help give them a sense of support that can help them to over come whatever concerns they may be facing and to redirect them to a healthier path of their choice.
I look forward providing the support needed to help your teen get back on track

Frances is a great therapist. She takes the time to learn and understand. She's a big believer in understanding everybody's perspective which makes her great at what she does.
Ms. Frances has been a great confidant for me. She's helped me see things and approach treatment in a way that works best for me. I can't wait to see what the new me has in store for the world!
Frances is amazing! She is humorous, kind, and extremely knowledgeable. I absolutely love chatting with her, and I trust her a lot. She will listen to you, guide you, and make sure you are comfortable every step of the way.
Frances is fantastically helpful! From helping move forward from my initial obstacle to ongoing support, I am very grateful for this opportunity and avenue of mental wellness support. So much so that as I contemplate signing up for a new health insurance plan, being able to continue directly with teen counseling is a major factor in my decision-making. Thank you, Frances!
Frances has been great at really listening to our daughter and communicating her feelings to us. She’s been readily available to offer support to me via text and always responds promptly.
