I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in the state of Pennsylvania. I have worked in the mental health field for a little over 6 years, and my expertise is primarily related to working with children, teens and families that have experienced trauma or other stress related disorders. I have experience working in the juvenile justice system with at risk youth as well as with children and teens in foster care. I also have experience working with individuals who have anxiety, difficulty managing anger, mood disorders and individuals working through family conflicts. My therapeutic frame is client centered and humanistic. You are seen as the expert in your life, while I guide you through internal awareness, interpersonal changes and healing. I begin where you are and tailor the treatment approach to your needs while being sensitive to how your individual cultural identities and lifestyle choices impact your experiences. I use evidence based techniques including Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) and Child Parent Psychotherapy(CPP).
My hours are Monday to Friday 9:15am-6:45pm. Earlier appointments, later appointments and weekends may be available upon request. I can generally can respond at least once per morning and once per evening, and sometimes more! You can also book a live session with me ahead of time. Please remember that BetterHelp (or specialty site!) is not appropriate if you are in crisis or in immediate need of support. In crisis situations, please call 911 or local emergency services. You can also call 1-800-273-TALK (8255) to talk to someone right away!

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Francesca Cochard. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with Teen Counseling might be different.
She has helped me in so many ways! Just having someone to talk to other then family and friends has helped me with my mental health and also some of my grief process after loosing my sister.
Fabulous at her job and very easy to talk too.
Francesca is terrific, as well as teen counseling.
A very convenient way to fit therapy into a busy schedule.
I’ve noticed a huge difference in how I handled a recent break-up working with Francesca. She has given me lots of references to work on my own but a lot of support and understanding and most importantly validation! I would highly recommend her!
This is still my first month, but I have learned a tremendous amount about myself in brief time. Without her help, I likely still would not know why the problems I’m experiencing are happening let alone how to fix them. I look forward to seeing the results over the long term.
She has been a great therapist!
So glad we started this relationship.
She is great!!
Francesca is a very well educated and passionate therapist. She makes me feel very safe and cared for every time I chat with her. I am very grateful to have been matched with her and plan to stick with her for a long time.
She’s been great so far!
Just getting started, but Francesca seems to care and listen and offer help when applicable while providing a comfortable space to open up.
