I am currently on maternity leave until early November. Please email me if you’d like to be added to my waitlist. Seeking out help takes courage. There is a level of vulnerability that is required when meeting someone new and sharing material that has possibly never been shared before. In fact, this can feel daunting. Perhaps you aren't where you'd like to be in life. There's a chance you aren't satisfied in your relationship(s). Or maybe you just need some help because what is being done simply is not working anymore. I believe the goal is to grow into our healthiest and most authentic selves.

We are meant to heal. The relationship of therapist and client takes place within a safe haven created by respect, acceptance, attuned connection and trust. The process of healing unfolds through making sense of one’s story ~ understanding how distortions and survival modes may have developed in response to real life experiences, and responding with compassion and without self-blame. Within this alliance, painful feelings and thoughts can be explored and expressed, as well as new ways of coping and new ways of relating. I have worked with individuals, couples and families as they experience the challenges of relationships, and the loss and transitions of life passages.

My passion is providing therapy to individuals and families to help them have greater joy in their life and relationships and to overcome painful feelings and life experiences. Have you ever felt a negative emotion for long periods of time? Anger, sadness, worry, fear, guilt, or shame? Have these feelings been combined with negative thoughts that play over and over in your mind, no matter how hard you try not to think about them? Did these thoughts and feelings begin after a life event or experience. Or, did they seem to come out of nowhere? Either way, if you are looking for support and relief I am here to help.

Relief from anxiety, depression, fears or angers gives you room to live your life fully. Self-improvement (your mind, body, self-esteem, capacity for satisfying/exciting relationships and powerful career advances) can move you leaps and bounds toward a richer, lively life. Eliminating habits (smoking, over-eating, lack of exercise, substances, etc) frees you to be you. Creating new paths after divorce, death, traumatic disruptions, leads toward a self-directed future. Through many different therapeutic approaches--well researched and tested-- you can attain your goals & dreams for your fuller, peaceful life. www.drcarolfrancis.com or call 310-543-1824.

You are already enough. No holes to be filled. No cracks to be plastered. I get it. Choosing self love can be hard. Everyone needs guidance.You might feel empty and desperate. I know it hurts to live in disconnect between what you are currently going through and what resides outside of you without effort. I know that life feels debilitating sometimes and you forget to breathe. I know there are parts you don't love. You want to be gentle when doubt visits, when fear obstructs, when control drains, and when loneliness blinds you to your own guiding light. When you are down you deserve support towards more self love.

As a therapist, I know that sometimes, you may just need someone to listen and walk through a difficult season in life with you. You may find yourself in need of a safe place to explore your thoughts and feelings about dating, a significant relationship or a life transition. You may be coping with pain in ways that are self-destructive, or feeling "stuck", sad, and/or overwhelmed by worry. I offer understanding and caring, compassionate feedback. My goal is to help you tap into your own inner wisdom, so that you can heal, grow, and thrive- ultimately living a more fulfilling life.

What type of Rancho Palos Verdes mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Rancho Palos Verdes?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
