Watching your child struggle is uniquely painful. Your family functions as a system, and as your child continues to face hardships, it impacts each member in different ways. While one child suffers, siblings feel overlooked, caregivers are consumed with worry, and the parental unit struggles to attend to one another. The good news is, you have every resource needed to bring the family system back into functionality. Here, the family is the solution. Our work will uncover the strengths that already exist within your child and family unit, while providing you with the tools and knowledge needed to capitalize on those strengths.

I enjoy working with children ,adolescents, adults, and couples, as well as providing ongoing support to parents and families.
As a psychologist with over 20 years of experience, I seek to provide a nonjudgmental and nurturing environment in which you can explore your current struggles. I believe that the therapist client relationship is critical to help you effect the positive change you are looking for. Together we can explore the patterns in your life that are preventing you from living the life you want and we can work to set realistic goals. Although I am trained using a psychodynamic approach, I also utilize DBT and mindfulness to help clients cope with anxiety, depression, relationship issues, and other mental health concerns.

My ideal clients are individuals who struggle with self-worth, trauma, or just feel stuck. Although I specialize in adolescent mental health, I also work with adults and children with the goal of drawing to the surface each individual client's unique awesomeness. For me, that moment when a client discovers and connects with his/her/their power is the ultimate success.

I specialize in trauma, children & teens, families, couples, First Responders, substance use, occupational stress, grief, & Men's Issues.
Life Comes in Waves, Let's Learn to Ride Them! Sometimes in the waves of change, We find our true direction. Life events and stress can leave us with emotional wounds. We then try to heal these wounds with harmful methods that make us feel better for the time being but hurt us later. Therapy can be your safe space to heal. It may sting or hurt to clean out at first. However, the gains you will receive from doing so will be beneficial for your well-being, your relationships, and your future. I will be by your side guiding you through the process at a pace that fits you.

I utilize therapeutic play to increase a child 's self-awareness of thoughts and feelings, build coping skills, and learn emotion-regulation techniques.
Parenting a struggling child who has tantrums, acts out aggressively, is defiant, and is impulsive can be physically and emotionally exhausting. Raising a child who is going through a difficult time and often appears sad, worried, or experiences challenges with peers can be heartbreaking. Figuring out the best ways to reach your child in any of these circumstances can be tricky and finding the right support isn't always easy. As a licensed therapist, I specialize in working with children and families with emotional and behavioral challenges and can be the support that you are looking for.

I am direct with both parent and child .
I work with children , adolescents, young adults and their families during periods of turmoil and crisis. Your son or daughter has become more distant; grades are less predictable; friends may have changed and there is more conflict at home. Intuitively, you know something is going on, but aren't able to reach them. This is often the time where a therapist can bridge the gap.

Making the decision to seek therapy can be difficult, whether it is for yourself, your child or a family member who is in need of support. Seeking help is not a sign of weakness, but strength to decide to change and be in charge of your own transformation, whatever that may be. I integrate the use of clinical Art Therapy to aid a client’s process and externalize challenges they may have, including issues of trauma, eating disorders, self-harm, grief and loss, medical trauma and major life transitions. I am dedicated to having clients feel empowered and to identify their strengths with self-acceptance and the healing process.

Relationships between husbands, wives, lovers, boy/girl friends, children or parents can be tricky. Happy, satisfying and fulfilling relationships require attention, energy, fun, humor, communication, time and investment of yourself. Too often relationships are hampered by misunderstandings, hurtful actions, stress, differences of opinions, unmet needs, and different expectations. Personality changes over time, affairs of the heart, infidelity, unmet sexual intimacy, abuse, cruel words, neglect, self-centeredness, different communication styles, different goals, values and dissimilar interests or fun activities also create unhappiness in relationships. Dr. Carol Francis has worked with relationships satisfaction for 32 years. 310-543-1824 or RelationshipSatisfactionNow.com and drcarolfrancis.com pathstosuccesses.com

I enjoyed very much my post licensure work at a family institute. Whether working with a child , an adolescent, an adult, a dyad or the whole family, I will initially focus on the person suffering the most. Based on the presenting symptom, I may do brief crisis intervention to stabilize a situation until an individual's underlying issue has been crystallized. The life issue causing depression, anxiety, and fears will then be addressed in more depth. My approach is to assist people in their own healing, maximizing on their own strengths and resources.

Child Therapists

Do I need to attend therapy with my child?

Parents are an integral part of a child’s therapy, but the specifics of their involvement vary. If your child is young, you may attend most or all sessions; if your child is older, you may attend a few sessions or none; sometimes a therapist may ask you to have a session on your own. Whatever the arrangement, you should expect to work collaboratively with the therapist, your child, and your family members to take steps to help support your child.

How long are sessions with child therapists?

Children’s therapy sessions can last 30 minutes, 45 minutes, or 60 minutes. The length of the session may depend on your child’s age and the type of therapy practiced. You can discuss this with therapists you consult and the one you ultimately move forward with.

How do I get a child to agree to seek therapy?

The best approach is to have an open-ended conversation with your child about how they’re doing and what they might be struggling with. When you raise therapy, discuss the concept in an age-appropriate way, for example explaining that a therapist’s job is to help kids handle their hard or uncomfortable feelings. Frame therapy positively, as an opportunity to explore and build emotional skills—it’s an important tool in the toolbox to help kids feel their best.

How can I tell if a therapist is a good fit for my child?

A child needs to feel comfortable opening up about their thoughts and feelings, so if your child feels a sense of comfort, ease, and trust with their therapist, that’s a great sign. In addition, a therapist is a good fit for your child if the two can communicate well together; a clinician should be able to communicate clearly, effectively, and in an age-appropriate manner.
